The vast majority do exactly this according to a study from Career Builder which reveals that 70% of employers view a potential employees social media pages before making a hiring decision. Even during employment 43% continue to check on current employees social media feeds.

The Silver Tsunami - 20 Million Potential Listings Coming

 

Currently, 33.9 percent of owner-occupied U.S. homes are owned by residents aged 60 or older, and 55.2 percent by residents aged 50 or older. As these households age and begin vacating housing, that could represent upwards of 20 million homes hitting the market through the mid-2030s.

According to a recent report by Zillow Research "the massive Baby Boomer generation has already begun aging into retirement, and will begin passing away in large numbers in coming decades – releasing a flood of currently owner-occupied homes that could hit the market."

We can be of service to Baby Boomers who may be looking at retirement options, senior living options, moving in with adult children, or right-sizing to travel more and spend time with grandchildren. In the event of a passing we can also assist with helping loved ones, estates, or trusts dispose of real estate. 

The numbers are staggering....

Interview w Howard Chung: The Three Chairs + Your Stop Doing List

 

What chair you are sitting in can change your career...

The chair isn't your favorite living room lazy-boy, it's a figurative chair. As thought leader and real estate industry innovator Howard Chung explains all of us are sitting in one of three chairs at any given moment: 

1) The Operator Chair - Daily business activities...

2) The Executive Chair - Long term planning and strategy...

3) The Life Chair - Personal time, rest and relaxation... 

During the interview we also discuss the power of to-do lists. Savvy agents embrace the concept that in addition (and maybe more important)  to a start doing list for 2020 is a stop doing list. These are the items that can negatively impact your business, your health, and your relationships that need to be removed from your business and your life.

Are You Over Scheduled and Underpaid?

Are you over scheduled and underpaid? 

During a recent podcast on Inspired Forward my friend with host Dan Trinidad we discussed some of the biggest mistakes we’re committing that makes it hard for us to have fulfilling personal lives and the best business we can have? As well as how we can build wealth so that we don’t have to stay in production longer than necessary? 

Three Things We Learned From This Episode

  • We won’t always find alphas to hire, but we can train and coach
    Alphas are quite rare. Most people aren’t, so when we hire them, we have to help them, coach them, educate them to reach their full potential.

  • Build your business around your life
    This is business planning season, and as we think about how 2020 is going to look, we have to start with our lives, families and personal goals. After that, we can add our business goals into the picture, and create a system that allows for more balance in our lives.

What do you charge? Easy Scripts for Commission Conversations

 

What do you charge? 

You will hear this question hundreds of times during your real estate career. How you respond can determine if you actually take the listing, your earnings per hour, and how much you value your time as a real estate professional. 

When you fumble or fold by offering a discounted commission you not only do a disservice to yourself, you do a disservice to the industry, and your colleagues. Why? Because it signals to potential clients that fees aren't based on actual costs of doing business but on an arbitrary number that is negotiable. 

Professionals set their fees based on the value of the time, the cost and structure of their business operations, and their expenses associated with each client. As a real estate professional you should be doing the same. Check out these easy scripts for making those conversations easier:

What do you charge?

It’s a success fee. I don’t charge anything unless I bring you an offer and we bring it all the...
