jim paulson boise realtor: New Home Marketing for Builders in Idaho - 04/17/18 11:36 AM
Marketing for a builder is completely different than marketing a resale listing.  It is imperative that a builder / developer understand this to make sure their agent is doing the best possible job for them.
One main difference was covered in one of my Advanced Marketing Classes at Boise State University where we learned to sell the "sizzle" not the "steak".  A resale home is the steak where you can see it, weigh it, check the fat content, see how thick it is, etc.  However, in many cases, in new home construction you have to sell the sizzle.  Close your eyes, you can … (5 comments)

jim paulson boise realtor: Happy Veteran's Day - Answer to World Peace Disclosed! - 11/11/17 07:57 AM
I am very blessed to have been able to travel this world since I was an embryo.  My father worked for Morrison Knudsen International which was a Fortune 500 engineering, mining and construction company based in Boise, Idaho.  Therefore, as he would travel the world, he would take us along and I have learned a lot about the world and it's occupants as a result.
Since today is Veteran's Day, I also pay tribute to all our Veterans who have also been sent around the world to make our home a better place here in the United States of America.  Here is … (2 comments)

jim paulson boise realtor: Google Guide Surprise - I never expected this! - 03/04/17 11:54 AM
I am a huge fan of Google, and only recently became a Local Guide for Google.  I love posting my photos and helping them update data for places.  I have lived in many different countries and most of the United States of America so I thought I might as well contribute.  I am amazed that one of the photos I uploaded has been viewed 31,295 times so far and I only uploaded it seven months ago!

jim paulson boise realtor: Intuition - one reason why I am not worried about Zillow - 02/24/17 10:04 AM
I am a huge fan of automation and technology, but we are a long ways away from being outsourced as Realtors.  For example, I use Google Alerts to help me keep track of what is happening on line for Boise Idaho real estate.  Therefore, I have a Google Alert set up specifically for "Boise Real Estate".  Today, even though Zillow dominated the top four results, I am not too worried.
 


 
The fourth on the list of top sites for Boise real estate today on Google was for "83701 Real Estate Agents".  I love the summary:
The 83701 zip code is for P.O. Boxes … (7 comments)

jim paulson boise realtor: Positioning yourself in today's competitive world - 02/19/17 04:10 PM
The only thing constant in today's world is . . . CHANGE.
Years ago, I changed and started blogging.  I was getting pretty active on the blogging website, www.activerain.com.  I was pleased with how it was working.  It wasn't overnight, it was a process that took time and effort.  
It was driving people to my websites:  www.IdahoMLStours.com and www.Progressive-Realty.info
I was getting "Featured" meaning the powers to be on that website liked what I had to say.  I was building relationships with agents around the country.  I was learning different perspectives on real estate.  They have a point system based on a variety of factors (blogging, … (7 comments)

jim paulson boise realtor: How to choose the right Realtor in today's market? Do a CMA on them! - 02/19/17 03:25 PM
According to Google, there are already 13,400,000 results for this question, so why am I still adding #13,400,001?  Because things have changed and some Realtor's have not!
 
When I Google'd "How to choose a Realtor", I read each one that showed up on the first page, excluding the paid for advertising one, and here was their consensus:  get references x6;  experience counts x5;  hire a local agent x5; review advertising/marketing plans; etc.
Albeit none of them is bad advice, I have been a Realtor for 25 years and I have a different perspective altogether.  Why not spin the table and use what the Realtors … (2 comments)

jim paulson boise realtor: Happy Birthday America - Free US Flag photo overlay - 07/02/15 01:11 AM
Happy Birthday America!
Humans appear to have the need to be fiercely independent.  Looking back, we should probably be cheering as soon as we leave our mother's womb instead of crying.  Most children spend the next 17-20 years trying to prove they are unique and capable of being independent until they finally move out on their own.
As they enter the work force, many immediately resent management and feel they are capable of doing the job better, even if they don't yet understand the big picture.  Some truly do end up with better ways to do business and they themselves become future managers … (2 comments)

jim paulson boise realtor: Top ten reasons why renting a home is better than buying one! - 06/26/15 05:00 AM
1.    1.  Taxes suck.  Let your landlord worry about how to handle the tax write offs and tax benefits (less stress).
2.  Pets:  You don’t have to worry about pets (because you can’t have them).
3.  Pride:  No pride of ownership means you can save your pride for things like the Pride Parade or take a trip to the zoo to check out the lion’s pride instead.
4.  Make new friends: (because you landlord will decide to sell for a profit forcing you to move at your expense)
5.  Less chance of a house fire (many rentals don’t have a garage and since most … (6 comments)

jim paulson boise realtor: Digital Photography for Realtors - heading toward Virtual Reality - 05/29/15 05:02 AM
I am amazed that many Realtors still have not come into the digital age and invested in a digital camera.
I was trying to remember when I first invested in my first digital camera and think it was back in 1999 when I got my Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation from the National Association of Realtors.  I still have mine and use it when I teach e-PRO classes to impress my students with my "state of the art" technology.
This was the first digital camera to sell for under $500 (the original MSRP was $999).  Look at the amazing specs on that beast!  Quality … (6 comments)
