trulia: The Grinch Who Stole Your Listings (+ How To Get 'Em Back) - 11/30/17 05:35 PM

Howdy ActiveRainers,
Here's a little holiday rhyme (inspired by the late, great Dr. Seuss) to kick off December – and, very likely, a boost in your listings.
(And in case you "don't get it" - the "Grinch" in the following context is in reference to Trulia, Zillow and the like.) 
 
 
 
Every agent across the land enjoyed listing a lot,
But the syndicate Grinch portal lurking online did not.
 
The Grinch misinformed and confused! Every single season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be, perhaps, that he didn’t have the best sight.
It could be his system wasn’t set up just right.
 
But I think that the most likely … (1 comments)

trulia: Your Listings: Strike While Iron & Market Are HOT. - 06/02/17 01:34 PM
 
Tim here, with some good news (re: your listing opportunities) as we head into June.
As we reported last month - Zillow has been under fire and faces a lawsuit based on their misleading Zestimates. Home values and resources for your homebuyers and homesellers should be accurate and reliable. Zillow is, clearly, NOT the answer.
It's time to strike while the proverbial iron - and housing market - are hot.
Zillow is down for the count. And your chance to deliver what your homeowners need in order to sell with you is readily available.

Howdy,
 
2016 has been rough.
So here’s a little holiday rhyme (inspired by the late, great Dr. Seuss)
to perk up your mood – and, very likely, your listings.

Don't be a reject.
Don't let your leads be led astray and end up in the doghouse.

trulia: They Think You're Gullible. Take It Personally. - 05/24/16 03:48 AM
 
The following is another stirring guest blog post by our VP of Sales and Marketing, Tawd Frensley.

"If more than 90% of your business comes from referrals........
Then why on Earth are you worried about Google ranking, Website Traffic, and Internet leads?
Putting 100% of your time and effort into something that is less than 10% of your business makes absolutely no sense. 
The companies that call you to sell you Optimized websites are using long tailed keywords that no one searches (ex. Colorado Springs homes with a swimming pool under $400,000). 

That's the dumbest thing on the planet. Do not let companies with ill … (8 comments)

trulia: Help Clients Avoid Eerie Syndicate Portal Traps. - 10/26/15 09:46 AM
 
 
We have another fact v. fiction issue that should matter a great deal to you.

Myth: Every syndicate site provides consistently accurate data and helps you retain your clients.
Fact: ONLY your AccelerAgent website brands you - ensuring that you keep leads and clients away from other sites and agents, and guaranteeing instant and easy access to important MLS listing details. Our Interactive MLS keeps your clients informed of ALL listing details including every photo, valuable market statistics, and even down to the best schools nearby.

trulia: We've said it TWICE, but we'll say it again... - 09/25/14 03:37 AM
In honor of Throwback Thursday - we've said it TWICE, but we'll say it again...
 
We just read an article titled “Can you run a successful business without Zillow, Trulia or Realtor.com?” We think that any article that shows both sides of a debate is commendable. We have to understand all sides to an issue. So read both sides. Then hear us out:
C’mon guys-OF COURSE you can run a successful business without these syndication portals.
 
There is so much inaccuracy on these sites, so much time waste-age. Real estate is a people business. You are helping people make HUGE life, family, and money … (2 comments)

trulia: Someone wrote an article that ticked us off. Here is our response. - 04/02/14 06:51 AM
The Real Estate Website: Still Relevant.
 
We read a recent article titled, “Your real estate website is irrelevant. Here’s why,” by Will Caldwell. We have to address it.
Hogwash! The real estate website is vital to the real estate agent- if it is used right.  
 
You real estate website is relevant if:
1. Clients can search for active listings
2. Clients can get information on pending and sold listings (for registered users)
3. It contains good neighborhood information including school info and demographics
4. It shows your testimonials and evidence of success
5. Visitors can read your personal insights into what’s going on in real estate today.
