We have all heard from numerous channels that video will be the key differentiation tool for top real estate pros over the coming years.
But numbers just released by the KCM blog provide some staggering insight into just how fast this transition is occurring and why embracing video as a key part of your marketing strategy is so important.
Would you like a way to quickly ramp up your real estate business (even if you have zero listings and no budget)?
You can be modeling one of the top team leaders in the country - Joshua Smith - who learned how to use a Mega Open House Strategy during his first year in the business (he sold 43 homes his first year!) to power an incredible rise in the industry. Joshua has since gone on to sell 6000 homes and has become listed as one of the top 30 REALTORS in the country.
I caught up with Joshua during an Elite Retreat for my own company where we hired Joshua to be our keynote presenter. (Please excuse the sound and lighting as we recorded this clip shortly before the session was set to begin.)
Do you need more leads, more listings, more buyers, and more closings?
What if lead generation didn't have to feel like work? What if you could tap into the easiest, most productive lead generation system to produce an endless stream of referrals? Oh, and by the way - no technology skills or social media mastery required!
The answer is networking. Before you dismiss this concept let's dig into the details and the specific technique.
Networking simply means you are connecting with people who have the power to send you referrals. It may be surprising to hear that according to Columbia University every American has 290 connections.

Now let's assume you...

Are you finding that sellers are reluctant to put their home on the market?
You aren't alone! One big reason for buyers and seller to hesitate entering the market is low inventory. When sellers fear they can't find replacement housing it creates a self reinforcing loop of even lower inventory for buyers with fewer and fewer homes coming to market. As real estate professionals we need to be able to answer the question of how we can protect sellers when they place their home on the market.
In this quick video we provide some key insights into the market for 2020 as well as three key way to overcome sellers reluctance. In addition we have three reports from our friends at KCM Blog that provide clear insight into the market for 2020 including mortgage rates, home sales pace, and appreciation rates.
Interest rates are predicted to hover at 7 year lows and provide an incentive for buyers and sellers to enter the market.
