Working in my new blog topic, Home Staging Training Tips, I recently wrote Home Staging Training Tips: Keeping your files organized. Here I mentioned that before filing my properties away after staging that I add an Avery Label with tasks for each property. In this blog I'm going to share with you what goes on my labels. This helps me stay focused and give each property the attention it deserves!
First let me show you roughly what it looks like:
[ ] Signed Contract [ ] Farmed @ staging
[ ] Contact Sheet [ ] Farmed @AC
[ ] Payment [ ] Farmed @ close
[ ] RES [ ] Thank you note
[ ] Photos to agent [ ] Survey Sent
[ ] Posted on AR [ ] added to spreadsheet
[ ] Posted on FB
It's this sticky label that helps things not fall through the cracks... When there is a lot to get done and you are working on multiple projects at a time, sometimes it is helpful to have a way to track each file. This way you don't have to try to remember what you did for each project all at once. When you have a few moments to sit down and work, you know exactly what still needs to get done!
On another sticky label I provide quick contact information on the property as well as when the contract ends and space for things like Days on Market and close date. Again, if we need to pull the file in 3 months for any reason, we have all the info at our fingertips!
I hope this is helpful information for those who are just starting out, or getting busy & wondering how they can get more accomplished in less time!
