The Answers To The Questions Your Clients Ask-THAT YOU CANT ANSWER

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker D'Ann Harper REALTORS® TX License #0566780


Robert Rauf, a Toms River, NJ mortgage broker provided a great source for information that may be of interest to a client regarding a geographic area. Agents are often constrained from providing some information to remain in compliance with state or federal laws. The link Robert provided allows anyone inquiring about an area to insert the zip code to receive information regarding the area sought. 

This information can be used in conjunction with whatever other sources used to provide background information for interested parties. Let Robert know if you like his suggested source of information.

How often do you have clients that ask the questions you know you can't answer?

The demographics of an area, crime rates etc...

Wouldn't it be great if you had a place to send them, rather than just saying: "I cant answer that" or "Take a drive around the neighborhood"

There is a place to send them to give them all the details of an area: Just Click HERE.

Once you have the web page up, enter a zip code and give it a minute or two to load (there is a huge amount of data that takes time) and you can scroll through the information.there are even map feature that will overlay all the data you want, from income to family size to all the questions a client may ask.

Here is an example, the 08753 zip code surrounded in red and each dark area represents a different median income. These maps can be used with any detail a client would desire. If you click on the map below it will bring you to the web page for 08753.

This is a great tool to share with your buyers, and a great one that allows them to find the answers they are looking for- especially for the questions that you should never answer!


Have a great week!

Interesting tool Wayne, we don't see or care that much about the difference in the demographics here, but it could still be fun to play with.
