Harvest Time

Services for Real Estate Pros with My Assistant

It's harvest time - are you reaping a good crop? Yes, I'm talking about farming and want to focus on ways to farm in your own neighborhood. You are the agent that is most invested in the property values and quick sales of the homes in your neighborhood. Hopefully, no other agent knows your neighborhood better than you. Here are some ideas to get you started.

-Mail Holiday cards.

-Host a neighborhood garage sale.

-Hand out seasonal promotional items - walk your neighborhood to pass them out. (mini pumpkins, boxes of pencils, etc. - all with a card featuring a real estate theme)

-Take walks and talk to people.

-Need an ice breaker? Buy a box of popsicles and hand them out on a hot summer day to the kids playing (with their parents' permission first - this will get you talking to them).

Slow times are the best times to market and to get to know the people in your neighborhood. These times force us to focus on the much needed fertilizer that will grant us a good crop for years to come.

What is your favorite way to farm your own neighborhood? I'd love to hear your ideas.

Good points Renee.  I do most of the things you mention in your post.  The popsicle thing is a new one but it's creative and I like it.
