connor macivor: If you can make them laugh they will buy :-) - 10/25/10 05:12 AM
Are your postcards just "Blah..." - I know most Real Estate Agents have a funny side to them.  Heck, we are still at it in this current market - We must have a funny streak a mile wide.
When doing mailings, if you still are, door hangers or other types of hand to home deliveries - Think Funny.  When people are taking a second look and laughing, it just might be what the doctor ordered to get them to pick up the phone to call.

connor macivor: How is the market in the cities within the Santa Clarita Valley on September 10, 2010? - 09/10/10 06:21 AM
Probably not much different than the rest of the country.  We are seeing a lot of buyers, in this current market, backing out of real estate transactions.  Some of this trauma can be directed to stricter lending requirements.  Others are speaking about the current state of the Real estate market and not wanting to jump in until it settles a bit.
Either way, we are watching as sellers are reducing their prices and buyers are reading more intel on the real estate market.  AS Paris always says to our new buyers, 'you are not buying a pair of shoes...'

If you are doing regular internet searches for Real Estate by the Keywords that are the highest ranked in your particular real estate market, then you want to do your best to go after the top results.
If one of those top results is something you can join and add your two cents to, then I think you should.
It does not take much to become effective in the internet blogging world, in fact, persistence pays off big dividends.
