The Power Of Advertising - Past Clients Become Forever Clients
We have a process when servicing our clients, present and past.  For those that relocate to another state, it seems we have a more difficult time staying in touch. This week an out-of- state past client called and asked if we could help once again.
 
Our client brought his preapproval letter and had already found their home from our website.  Within hours we were already under contract!
 
The power of the internet, combined with constant advertising, equal great transactions with previous clients.  Past clients and referrals are our base for our business.

springfield mo real estate: Pricing Your Home To Sell in 2019 - 07/25/19 07:59 PM
Pricing Your Home To Sell in 2019
With our busy market, homes in today's market do not stay active if priced right.
 
Years ago, before the Internet was widely available for every aspect of life, determining the price of your home for your local market relied heavily on the assistance of a real estate agent or broker.
 
Now, with the ease of access to many different online real estate information sources, pricing a home for sale can seem like a very easy task. While it may be easier for a seller in 2019 than in 1990, pricing a home still best involves an agent … (2 comments)

springfield mo real estate: Find You Niche and Focus - 07/23/19 07:58 PM
Find Your Niche and Focus!
 
This real estate business has so many different avenues to follow.  Residential. Commercial.  Multi-family.  Rentals.   No matter what you decide to do, find your niche and focus.
I see so many new agents flounder and leave the business before they even find their niche.  Years ago, I  dabbled in commercial real estate and found that I didn't have the knowledge or focus to understand that part of the real estate industry.  It was exciting to run with a different type of clientel, but I kept finding myself coming back to my roots.....helping buyers and sellers find and sell … (2 comments)

RE/MAX National Housing Report for April 2019
Interesting how the market fluctuates across the United States.  Some states are low on inventory, while in other markets, homes are not selling.
In the Springfield Missouri area, homes under $300,000 are still moving quickly, while homes over $300,000 remain on the market longer.  Luxury homes take longer unless agressively priced.  Check out the National Housing Report for April 2019.

No, I Won't Sell My Data Base!
I guess I wasn't born yesterday, because every morning I look in the mirror and see another wrinkle from working this real estate business for the past 30 years and realize my hair is slowing disappearing and my wrinkles are getting deeper, while my knowledge of real estate continues to grow.
Maybe, just maybe, one of these days, one of these online companies that keep calling me, wanting to have me give them complete access of my database so they can contact all my past clients. will actually work and I'll cave in and be gullable … (1 comments)

springfield mo real estate: Pricing Is Everything In The Springfield Mo Market! - 04/02/16 09:07 AM
Pricing is Everything in the Springfield Mo Market!
Sold in 16 Days
Recently speaking to a group of professionals about the Springfield Missouri real estate market, I explained that  pricing is everything if you want a successful closing.
Even with our inventory still low, only 38% of all homes in the Multiple Listing System have sold in the past year.  Much of that is due to homes being too high and expiring and owners withdrawing their homes from the market.
The last 4 homes that we have placed under contract have sold between 3 - 16 days.  Let the "Kay" Team show you how to … (2 comments)
