With the ever-increasing cost of online leads, many real estate agents wonder if there’s a better way to bring in new business.
As a matter of fact, there is.

Done right, not only is door-knocking incredibly affordable (essentially free), it’s a highly effective strategy for drumming up new business
Don’t believe me?

Everyone’s heard how effective real estate Facebook ads can be, but countless agents still haven’t given them an honest shot.
Have you?

real estate sales: What Home Buyers Need to Know About PMI - 09/13/18 08:50 AM
Many potential home buyers can’t afford to make a 20 percent down payment. Fortunately for them, there are plenty of loan options that don’t require 20 percent down.
But cutting costs at closing isn’t always in a buyer’s best interest.
While a low down-payment requirement may make it easier to finance the purchase of a home, putting less than 20 percent down often results in a higher interest rate and the inclusion of private mortgage insurance (PMI).
As a real estate agent, it’s important to ensure your buyer clients are aware of the extra costs they may incur by making a low down payment. PMI, in … (0 comments)

I created Rebus University’s Certified Price Reduction Course about a year ago, and it hasn’t been our most popular course. Until recently, I’ve only sold 10 copies or so.

real estate sales: How to Make Six Figures as a Part-Time Agent - 08/16/18 07:38 AM
Plenty of agents make six figures in real estate, but those who do typically work insane hours and hardly have time for anything else. However, there are some agents who only work part-time hours and still manage to make six figures.

Chris’ annual earnings are in the high six figures, but he rarely works more than 30 hours per week. He has time to spend time with his family, to pursue hobbies; he has time to enjoy everything that life has to offer.
What’s he doing differently than 99 percent of agents out there? Listen to … (1 comments)

Getting sellers to set the right asking price is something that many real estate agents struggle with, and understandably so. When sellers are set on an unreasonable pricing strategy, explaining why it likely won’t work isn’t an easy conversation to have.

Broker Connie Carlson came up with a great way to help sellers set the right asking price from the start, all without the awkward conversation or the risk of losing them to another agent.
Instead of telling sellers what she thinks they should price their home at, she lets them … (1 comments)
