5 Things You Should Know (News Roundup - 6/5)

Services for Real Estate Pros with PropertyMinder, Inc.


1. Antitrust Cops Turn Attention to Real Estate Data Zillow Needs

"Critics say the project has the potential to impede competition in the market by placing a large share of valuable real estate data in the hands of one entity controlled by NAR and large brokerages. Access to such data has been critical to the success of internet startups such as real estate listing company Zillow Group Inc."

         What you should do: 
         - Stay tuned for developments. Is this the beginning of the end for Zillow?
         - Speaking of Zillow - did you know Seller's Corner keeps your clients away from sites like that?

2. The Richest Self-Made Woman In Real Estate Shares Her Best Advice

       What you should do: 
       - Get to know Dottie Herman. You may have more in common than you think.
       - Oh, and make sure you're fully equipped with the best money-making marketing suite out there.

3. Voters head to the ballot box in California. Learn more about the statewide propositions/measures and meet the candidates for Governor

       What you should do:
       - Um... VOTE!


4. Some sellers using home-tech devices to spy on buyers during showings.

       What you should do: 
       - Maybe check-in with your clients. Make sure you're on the same page. Trust is essential.

5. Find that competitive advantage with this home buyer's guide to motivated sellers.

        What you should do:
        - Share every resource you can that will empower both you and your home buyers
        - Remember that your clients deserve the best - that's why we purchased a server that houses
          the largest property photos (upgrade from the compressed images on the MLS).

While it's great to have outside websites ...Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, etc. etc. disseminating information, it is not as accurate as the MLS where agents monitor and update their own listings. After 40 years, I believe business is still local and personal. It is based on trust and reputation.

I absolutely agree with you, Barbara Tattersall! Couldn't have said it better myself.  Do you have any kind of system/notification setting(s) in place that let your local contacts know what's happening in and around their neighborhood (like what's active, pending and sold)? Great way to stay in touch, and provide info they need to make important decisions (and turn to you when they're ready to act). - Tim
