Weltanschauung: The guiding principles and philosophy of the ActiveRain Platform

Weltanschauung: The guiding principles and philosophy of the ActiveRain Platform

In a structured society, there is a need for guidelines or laws to maintain order and stability. For countries, they would be charters or as in our country, a Constitution.  For the blog platform we enjoy, the guidelines are contained in a format called the Weltanschauung. Like the amendments to our Constitution, the Weltanschauung has 10 organizational amendments, all of which form the parts of the whole.

Point #2 of these reads as follows:  We believe that real estate professionals will thrive if they demonstrate their local market expertise. With ever greater access to listings, local knowledge is now the key differentiator.

For many, it is understood that real estate is local. By having a strong grasp of the local market conditions, including pricing, inventory, and other factors we are able to provide the best advice to buyers and sellers seeking our real estate expertise. If we demonstrate to the general public that we truly are the local experts, we give ourselves an opportunity to be considered first when issues regarding the buying or selling of real estate are generated.

Blogging on ActiveRain allows us to demonstrate to real estate professionals and the general public that we truly are the local experts. The local market information we share is without limits as we submit posts on our communities and neighborhoods; homes available as well as current market reports and trends.

By offering posts on local attractions we demonstrate our knowledge and involvement in the community as well. Posts on tourist attractions, recreation, shopping, dining, local events all demonstrate to the reading public that we are the source for local information in addition to the source for buying and selling real estate.

Not surprisingly, these local posts are what generate calls and emails. They are the fodder that generate our business if done correctly.  It is a path that requires consistency over time but it does bring results.
