1. Does Hurricane Damage Negatively Impact Your Real Estate Value?
     What you should do: 
         - Ease the burden(s) of grappling with Mother Nature's fury for your homeowners, by providing
           them with the home care, improvement and safeguarding resources they need to keep their
           property (and lives) secure.
2. How a Philly real estate agent threw a family she'd never met a huge virtual housewarming party.

1. Group temporarily bans real estate signs to improve town.
         What you should do: 
         - Make sure you have a strong online presence. Who knows when a sign ban may creep
           into your neck of the woods? 
2. Who controls the data that fuels real estate deals?

       What you should do: 
       - Provide your sellers and buyers with all of the real estate info they need to make responsible
         decisions (remember we just purchased a server that houses the largest MLS photos)!

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.

mls: 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)

mls: Your homebuyers are on high alert. - 06/26/17 03:09 PM
Tim here, with some news that'll rattle you (but don't worry, there's hope!)...
An article I read recently claimed: "Indecisive or procrastinating homebuyers beware: New data show that more than half the homes on the market in May were snapped up in less than a month...[making it the] shortest turn-around time in more than six years...That means potential buyers need to act fast when they find a home they like or risk losing out." Read the full article here.

To top it off, one of "the biggest year-over-year declines in available homes" was in "San Jose, Calif. (29.2)" (Hometown of PropertyMinder headquarters).

We've known this for quite some … (1 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.

mls: Buyers Today. Sellers Tomorrow. #NoRegrets - 05/04/17 04:03 PM
Tim here, with a few thoughts on "buyer's remorse" (i.e. - beholding heaven and feeling hell). 

"Buyer's remorse (or buyer's regret) is the sense of regret after having made a purchase; frequently associated with the purchase of an expensive item such as a car or a house. It may stem from fear of making the wrong choice, guilt over extravagance, or a suspicion of having been overly influenced by the seller." - Wikipedia

We all know what it's like. The after-the-fact regrets cause unneeded stress and frustrations.

Your homebuyers are no different.
Wouldn't it be nice to deliver exactly what they're looking for at a price they can afford, and prevent all … (2 comments)

mls: Your Sellers Need To Lighten Up. - 12/20/16 05:47 PM
Heads up: this Wednesday, December 21st marks both Winter Solstice (shortest day and longest night of the year) AND Look on the Bright Side Day.
Coincidence? I think not.
Your leads and clients will be deprived of extra daylight, which might make them extra cranky – especially if it’s chilly out.
So, what can you do to brighten their day?
You’re not God. You can’t manipulate the sun.
But you can provide a special type of brightness (the best and only kind that truly matters).
Get buyers and sellers turning to you this winter (and well into 2017)
with these quick, enLIGHTening tips (pun obviously intended).

Thank you,

Director of Marketing
