idx: When business is slow, AccelerAgent! - 08/22/18 04:27 PM

Hi ActiveRainers,
Tim here, with a special message from our very own VP of Sales & Marketing, Tawd Frensley:

Real Estate deals aren’t always easy to come by. Months usually go by without any prospects in sight, coercing agents to buy weak, diluted leads.

For the past 20 years, PropertyMinder has helped agents create a consistent stream of business.

NAR states that 89% of people in a REALTORS database will most likely choose another REALTOR for their next transaction. 89%???

We are facing a repeat business epidemic. The cause? Well, there are many factors:

Hi ActiveRainers,
Tim here, how's your week going?
It's been a while since we created an infographic (scroll below), so we thought we'd share another one (based on content freshly drafted by Andy Coffaro, my co-worker over here at PropertyMinder marketing).

We're going back to the basics...er... let's call them essentials.
The essential tools, the essential resources, the essential practices - that you need to remain empowered, grounded, and effective in your marketing efforts.
We'd love to hear your thoughts, as always.

Howdy ActiveRainers,
Tim here, with a reality check: your website does not have to be perfect.
But it can be if you "master" a few things.
"Mastering" your website. Cool concept.
But let's break it down, word for word.
Mastering (verb): acquire complete knowledge or skill in (an accomplishment, technique, or art); gain control of; overcome.
Website (noun): a connected group of pages on the World Wide Web, maintained by one person or organization and devoted to a single topic or several closely related topics.
So what will the free WEBSITE MASTERY WEBINAR do? It'll help you:

- MASTER your representation as an "ALL things real estate" agent (home selling, home buying, home improvement, home care)...

Howdy ActiveRainers,
How's 2018 treating you? 
Although I remember reading previous posts containing something to the effect of: "I refuse to do Open Houses" or "Gee, I don't really see the point," I've taken the liberty of revamping one of our previous blog posts and turning it into an infographic (which, as you can see, provides some Open House tips and guidelines). 
So, whether you organize and attend them or not - you likely know somebody who does and might find this useful. ;-)
Enjoy,
Tim

Hey ActiveRainers,
Going out of your way to send a few quick, personalized home buyer updates (i.e. - listing suggestions that accurately fit their dream home expectations) will underscore your admirable commitment in landing them what they're looking for. 
Delivering HD Photos, accurate listing details (right down to the best schools nearby), critical neighborhood info, and every last option that's up their alley doesn't hurt either. ;-)

This is a side note to see if posting enough words on this blog post will make it worthy of earning points. I don't know why ActiveRain won't provide points to blog posts with infographics that feature extensive, helpful content. Do you understand why? If so, let me know. :-) Okay, that was 58 words. 
P.S. - the word count worked. :-)

idx: Politics aside, this is just bad news for your homebuyers. - 10/03/17 12:41 PM
Howdy ActiveRainers,
Quick question - how do “changes that would make homebuying less attractive” sound?* Yeah, not so pleasant. I know.
Yesterday I came across this headline: “The California Association of Realtors says the Republican Tax Reform Plan will eliminate the incentive for people to buy homes, shrink the middle class, and raise taxes on hundreds of thousands of California homeowners.” *
Irrespective of your political party affiliation(s), this (especially the parts about diminishing homebuyers’ motivation to purchase homes, and increasing taxes on homeowners) is pretty unsettling news, to say the least.
Inventory is already low. Your homebuyers, in particular, should (no, make that NEED to) feel energized and … (3 comments)

idx: Millennials: A New Source For Increased Listings. - 05/22/17 01:00 PM
Howdy folks,

Tim here, how’s your week going?
With inventory at record lows, it’s imperative to secure listing opportunities by any means necessary. Agreed?

This includes targeting the hottest homebuyer demographic in the nation: millennials.
The logic behind this? Your homebuyers become your homeowners, and your homeowners eventually become your home sellers. So, let’s start at the very beginning (a very good place to start) – pre-paving more listings by securing more homebuyers (i.e. – your eventual home sellers). Sound good?

A few critical statistics:
- “Millennials [are] the nation’s largest living generation.”
- “Millennials make … (5 comments)

Tim here - did you know some of the issues keeping you from maximizing revenue include allowing Zillow and similar portals to infiltrate your database?
You may send clients something like an inventory snapshot, fresh marketing content, referral request, and use our New MLS Map Search to provide search results – but this still disconnects clients from the primary objective: Always remembering your domain name.
Today we're going to show you how free 30 day access to marketing designed in the heart of the nation’s hottest (seller’s) housing market will make your website the first and only destination local homebuyers and sellers will be visiting.
