How Has the Cost Of Doing Business Impacted You?

Services for Real Estate Pros with Crescent Moon Realty, Inc. & Land N Sea Auctions.

It seems that no matter where you look the price of essential items that we all use are going up and I know that it is impacting our business bottom lines. At a recent brokers meeting we discussed the reality of what each agent is facing. Here are some of the observations.

•1.    Agents are cutting back on advertising.

•2.    Some agents no longer belong to as many networking groups.

•3.    Less and less are getting designations.

•4.    Some are sharing MLS fee's.

•5.    Agents are not escorting buyers to show properties as quickly as they at one time did.

•6.    More teams are being formed to share expenses.

•7.    Desk rents and splits are changing.

•8.    Agents are being more proactive in getting price reductions in their listing.

My business is unimpacted by the current market. Since over 85% of our listings are sold on the Internet, my costs are as low as they can get.  What is more important, it is effective.

I think it is kind of a double edge sword cutting back when maybe they should go the other way.

Interesting list.  I have observed that the normally very busy agents are now taking phone shifts and doing open houses.

What a great observation ---- I have seen many top producers also cut back on the numbers of buyers agents also.


It seems that it can be a double edge sword some feel it time to run lean, others are putting every thing they can into their profession.


Glad to hear that your selling rate on the Internet is so awesome.
