How Educational Marketing Unlocks More Buyers And Sellers For Your Business

        

What is educational marketing?

Educational marketing is one of the most powerful techniques you can use to build trust and unlock more buyers and sellers for your business.

But how do you do it?

Well, you got to understand that a lot of expert marketers use what's called "The Curiosity Gap." That's where you pose a question or you put a statement out there and then it makes people curious about knowing the answer.

Now we fall into this curiosity gap all the time — from headlines to news soundbites that are trying to get you to watch the news at six o'clock, book covers, wine labels, and all kinds of things create curiosity in us. But when we look at our knowledge quest as human beings, we're always driven by not knowing and the power of wanting to know what we don't know, right?

So here's an example of this:

One of my good friends, Scott Lewis, a superstar realtor that I work with put this post out. And it was simply about the...

Unlocking Opportunities with your Social Media CRM

       

You are sitting on one of the best CRMs on earth — but you probably know that.

Facebook is absolutely your best CRM on earth. And then Instagram comes second and LinkedIn is third.

All of these social media platforms give us an insight into what's happening in people's lives.

Now how do you use that information? A lot of us just get up, drink our coffee every morning and scroll through social media meaninglessly. But you don't actually look at it as a CRM.

I want you to look at your social media differently. Look at it like it's a CRM Strategy Feed.

That means, I want you to look for "life changes" — meaning new jobs, new babies, retirements, and college graduations. Or people that are sick or going on vacation. There are many different scenarios where people have life changes — even divorces and engagements.

There's so many different life changes that people go through and today it's all public. Every single thing is public.

Now, when...

Fewer Listings or Velocity of The Market?

       

You learn something new every day in real estate. Even after 31 years in this business, I'm still learning.

I learned something fascinating this morning based on a study from Zillow:

In the last half of 2020, the number of listings taken week by week were about even with 2019.

There's a sense that there's a lot less listings in the market as a result of of us not taking as many listings, but it's just not true.

In the last half of 2020, we've taken as many listings as a nation as we did in 2019. But it doesn't feel like that.

So why doesn't it feel like that?

It's like if you own a grocery store and had a delivery guy come every Friday to fill your shelves with the same order. But what has changed is the number of buyers walking into your grocery store and how many products they're buying each time they come in.

If more buyers are coming into your store and buying more products from your shelves, it's going to seem like there's not as much on the shelves...

Quick Tip: The Four Sales Script

       

The market is changing, we are starting to see double-digit appreciation returning to the marketplace. Unfortunately this can cause some sellers to get ahead of the market and demand prices that are unreasonable. In short some sellers are getting greedy.

As a real estate professional one of our most important jobs is to be be an educator. Try using the "Four Sales" - Script to help educate your sellers:

"We have to sell this home to four different people. We have to sell it to the real estate community, to motivate them to show the home. Then we have to sell it to the buyer. Then we have to sell it to the appraiser and finally we have to sell it to the underwriter for the bank. All of these people will measure your home-based other homes they have seen in the marketplace. Even if one of them agrees to pay over market – it’s unlikely the other three will also agree."

The Power of Demand Based Pricing

 

Have we hit a hard ceiling on pricing in the country?

According to a recent study the number of homes receiving over full price has fallen dramatically. In addition the appreciation rate has slowed to 3-4% in many areas of the country. Here are some numbers that provide some insight:

  • The share of U.S. homes that sold for more than their list price in 2019 fell to 19.9%, the lowest annually since 2016.
  • Homes that sold above list last year typically brought in $5,100 more than the asking price, down from $5,500 the year before.

Even with record low inventory and strong demand buyers are now resisting higher prices. Why? One reason is income, over the past twenty years incomes have been relatively stable with very little growth. 

So how can we help sellers navigate the changing market landscape? One way is to explain demand based pricing. Watch the video to learn how identifying and explaining buyer demand to a seller can help them position their home to attract more showings...

Overcoming Seller Reluctance + 2020 Market Predictions

 

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. 

Mortgage Rates: 

Interest rates are predicted to hover at 7 year lows and provide an incentive for buyers and sellers to enter the market.
