This week we are sharing a blog post that was originally published by our sister company IXACT Contact.
A real estate agent’s website says a lot. It can either be helpful to its audience of prospects, or not. It can either contribute to an agent’s goals of building an online brand and generating leads, or not.  The best REALTOR® websites have the boxes checked in both of these categories.
Now the question is, what do the best Realtor websites look like? What components do they have that set them apart? And most importantly, how do you get the best real estate website that … (4 comments)

referralmarketingprogram: The Sale Does NOT Belong To The Agent - 09/23/15 07:35 AM
Real Estate agents, always present the offer, any offer to the seller as its' up to them to decide how to handle it.
There are many of us out there that take our jobs personally. Although we have to separate our emotions from the job, I take my business personally because it makes me more passionate about what I do and who I do it for.
 
Regardless of how much of the "personal" we set aside, there is one thing that too many agents forget ... the Realtor® is NOT a party to the contract. This purchase or sale that you … (0 comments)

referralmarketingprogram: New Realtors® Generate More Referrals, Leads, and Sales - 09/22/15 09:02 AM

Are you new to real estate?
If you've just started out in the real estate business, you've probably already discovered that those first few months can be financially challenging.
Many new real estate agents forget that they’re going into business for themselves; and they don’t realize that they need building tools, resources, and proven business practices to help guide them to a successful career.
If you are like most most new real estate agents then you will find it hard to:
manage expenses when you haven’t earned any commission income yet; develop a business with a limited budget and limited resources; and get started on … (0 comments)

referralmarketingprogram: Is a Tiny House Right for You? - 09/18/15 06:12 AM
Smaller homes are becoming more and more popular, and what they lack in size they make-up with an attractive price point. 

 
What started with a few people looking to down-size during the recession has turned into a national phenomenon:  I’m speaking of course about the Tiny House movement.
 
A tiny house (also referred to as a micro or mini house) is generally from 100 to 500 square feet and is built on a chassis with wheels so that it can be easily moved, or it is built on a permanent foundation.  Following the excessive McMansion era and the real … (2 comments)

Have you ever wondered what a real estate agent should and shoudn't do, during an open house? Here are some great tips on this blog post.
Over the years I have held and attended hundreds of open houses. Some are fantastically boring and others are incredibly fun - depending which builder is giving away the wine, catered food and bizarre entertainment. I once witnessed a guy who stayed in a frozen position for 10 minutes at a time. He was painted completely bronze. He wore a cowboy hat and stood there like an idiot in the blazing heat. I still don't understand … (5 comments)

referralmarketingprogram: 8 Body Language Tips for Realtors - 09/02/15 08:03 AM
We’ve all heard about body language. When someone’s arms are crossed, it usually means that they are being impatient, closed off, and insecure. Or when someone rolls their eyes upwards during a conversation, they are often considered to be skeptical and in disagreement with what is being said.
But what we interpret in body language is not always true. After all, a person might have their arms crossed just because they are cold and wish to warm-up. Or, they may be looking up because their kid has a soccer game that night and they’re worried about rain!
People can misinterpret body language. So realtors, you want … (3 comments)

referralmarketingprogram: Real Estate Agents is your car leaving a good impression? - 08/26/15 06:55 AM
 
Real Estate Agents, your car is an important part of your overall marketing kit. It is the first thing prospects see when you visit their homes for a listing presentation. It is what they ride in when you take them to view homes. It is what you park in their driveways during an open house.
Obviously, you want your car to look as clean and presentable as possible. 
But that is not always easy. You spend hours in your car each day – driving, making phone calls, doing paperwork, even eating. Mess and clutter can build up quickly. And, in no time at all, … (4 comments)

Today we are sharing a blog post originally posted by our sister company IXACT Contact and written by Candace Green.
How much of your real estate business comes from referrals? If you’re anything like the many REALTORS® I speak with, it could be 60-80% of your business.  That’s a massive amount of your livelihood coming from one source!
While I happily sing the praises of prospecting phone calls, and social media marketing, it can’t be denied that real estate is a business built on relationships, and your strongest relationships, or your Sphere of Influence (SOI), are your most reliable referral source.

referralmarketingprogram: When life gives you lemonade... - 08/17/15 07:15 AM
Love what you do and success will follow. Great post!

It's one of the oldest businesses any young entrepreneur remembers starting. They aren't around as often anymore but the neighborhood curbside lemonade stand used to be a staple among communities all across the Country. Children of all ages would haul their tables, chairs, and homemade signs out to the major walkways so they could catch the eyes of thirsty pedestrians or motorists eager to support their cause.
No one that I can remember ever got rich off of running a lemonade stand. But, if a kid made a few bucks … (0 comments)

Realtors, would you accept the first offer on a house you are selling? Why or why not?
 
Should Sellers Take The First Offer When Selling Their Home?Some say first offers are the best offers, some say to wait it out to get a higher offer, I personally do not agree with either theory.If your house is priced to sell and what I mean by that is list price is supported by sold homes within your neighborhood that are comparable to your house and within the market value, then it is perfectly fine to expect an offer in a short amount of … (3 comments)

Very helpful post on the biggest reason for mortgage delays. 
Most people, even those in the Real Estate business would probably answer this question by saying Income and Credit issues are the the major reason for mortgage delays.  However, they would be wrong.  Income and Credit Issues are major reasons why Borrowers are not able to qualify for a Mortgage, but they are not the single biggest reason for mortgage delays once the loan is in process.  So What Is The Single Biggest Reason For Mortgage Delays?  The single biggest reason for mortgage delays are assets, and more specifically verification of … (2 comments)
