Unique Buyers Looking For Unique Homes

This month's challenge is to tell you ...what I'm doing, differently in the business.

Is there anything really new? Probably not.

Maybe the new is going back to basics.

Early on in Real Estate, I used to advertise for homes within five miles of the Baltimore Beltway.

Our Beltway is over 50 miles, circling the center of Baltimore, and covers a whole lot of territory. How many homes do you think are within a few miles of the beltway.

 

The red outline below shows our Baltimore Beltway 695.

Always specializing in listings, maybe there will be a few more buyers than in the past.  I will be proactively finding them homes. 

How will I do that?

Here are just a few ways:

 

#1

 By blogging,  what the buyer needs.

#2

By using my Sunday radio show to seek the homes with their special list of features. 

#3

By having the buyers tag some homes they are interested in but not on the market. I make up a flyer that says...

''Dear Home Owner, 

Our family would like to live in this neighborhood. We like your home and if you are thinking of selling, please contact our real estate agent:

Margaret Rome 410-530-2400 mrome@homerome.com  All calls are confidential.”

 By Advertising

There are other ways to find homes before they hit the market and also be a source for new listings.

But remember Buyers are future listings. They are a terrific referral source and their friends and family may want to buy and sell.

  

There are owners who are reluctant to list their property but if they know you have a qualified buyer...a deal is possible.

Cannot get past that listings are the name of the game.

When an agent sells their last listing...they out of business!

 Some of my clients who are listed with me are also in the position to purchase.  

And after many wonderful years concentrating on listings which will continue but this year I am going to focus on some of the buyers.  There is no reason not to give some equal time to buyers who are looking for unique homes. And yes they may buy one of my listings.

Thinking about buying or selling a home

Nice entry, Margaret. I'm sure it helps that you are well-known in the area too.  We often get these types of letters or postcards,  from agents we've never heard of - got be honest, it gives me pause. I like your format though, the request for various types of properties makes it seem more legitimate.

Margaret,

There is nothing really new in marketing.  Once you have the fundamentals, you have to keep it up with consistency.  A

I've done little differently over the years, except for the last couple years when I have began cutting back in attempt to slip into quiet retirement.

Hi Margaret,
If something is working there isn't any particular need to do something new is there?  That said, you can't go wrong by going back to basics. 

Have a fabulous day!
