Leave 2009 Prepared for 2010

A couple weeks before the holidays - Christmas, Hannakuh, whatever you might celebrate - there is the tendency to slack off a bit.  There's parties to attend, shopping to do, - well, maybe you're even planning for a winter vacation.

Despite the new tax credit, business is likely to be down bit, partly because of the holidays and for two other reasons.  People who wanted to apply for the old homeowner's credit slowed down their shopping when they thought they'd run out of time to get it.  Repeat buyers who qualify under the next credit have hardly made it through the "Ten Steps to Make Your House Sell" yet to get it ready for sale.

That means there is a bit of time before clients are making a lot of demands on your time but that does not mean there is nothing to do.  Here's your "To-Do List" for the rest of December:

  •  Touch base with those clients you worked with earlier in 2009 who didn't buy (or list) and schedule them for some holiday coffee to discuss their next step in view of the home buyer credits. 
  • Write your goals for 2010.  Written goals aid success.  If 2010 does get off to a busy start, you will be ready with a clear focus.
  • Read up on your real estate news.  There are big changes on the way for FHA, short sales, credit law, etc.  Your knowledge can make the difference for your clients.

Make a Commitment: I will leave 2009 prepared for 2010

It is hard to resist the urge to slack off right now, but it is more critical than ever before not to!

I totally agree that the next 3-5 weeks are a great time to build up FB and get all goals underway !

What's always nice about December is that even if you don't have major deals going on, you can also do a few like like write our goals, clean up your database, add your FB friends, figure out what the heck Twitter is, etc. before the new year!

Have a great holiday!
