The GAP that is Killing Your Real Estate Business

goals lead generation Jun 05, 2019
 

The GAP is the sudden realization that your pipeline is (or is nearly) dry. You have run out of escrows, listings, and active buyers. Your fuel tank indicator is flashing red and you still have miles to go before all of your bills are covered for the next month or quarter. 

Why do agents have gaps in their income?

Inconsistent lead generation is the number one reason for a gap.

Almost all agents at some point in their career stop doing what made them successful in the first place. They stop making calls, sending letters, connecting on social media, and conducting networking meetings. They stop calling their best clients, delivering gifts, and touring homes daily. They stop attending office meetings, training events, and social mixers. They stop moving forward and soon their momentum slows and then stops altogether.

The difference between good agents and great agents is what they do next. When the gap strikes agents can naturally feel panicky, emotional, angry, or...

listings scripts sellers May 26, 2019
 

Pending home sales surged in March up 3.8% (blowing past economists expectations of only .07%) but there is a catch the median US home value fell for the first time in seven years in April. Why are sales surging but prices are now falling?

To attract a buyer sellers have to price their home's to compete against more and more inventory hitting the market daily. 

Watch this video to explore a game plan for having three key conversations with your sellers to ensure they get their pricing right!

New Study Open Houses Sell for $9,046 More Money!

marketing open houses May 13, 2019

According to a new study conducted by Redfin open houses sell for $9,046 more money and spend seven fewer days on the market than homes not held open. Why? Listing agents who host strategically timed open houses aren't just advertising their listings they are marketing their listings to the critical "backlog of buyers".  

“I usually list properties on a Thursday or Friday, then hold an open house on Saturday or Sunday. I also hold private showings because it’s so important to get as many potential buyers into the home as possible,” said Jessica Johnson, an agent in Miami, Florida “Open houses can help homes sell faster. When homebuyers see other people at an open house, it can motivate them to place an offer more quickly than they otherwise would. I had two listings go under contract last week after just one weekend on the market. In both cases, the buyers first saw the home at the open house.”
