Marketing with your Blog

by Bill Lanz

A real estate agent blog is an indispensable inbound marketing tool to help you connect with your potential consumer online. People are increasingly turning to blogs to learn about products and services.

An agent blog is a terrific way for you to demonstrate your real estate expertise, inform readers about your market while giving them an opportunity to be part of the conversation. Consumers definitely want to read articles about your real estate market but it's also helpful to write articles about your community, your business, and even your outside interests. When you connect with your readers this way they will better understand why they should do business with you.

Showing Feedback with RPS Gold

by Bill Lanz

RPS Gold includes a complete home showing feedback system. When agents show your listings, they simply follow a link to provide their feedback online. They are asked to answer a short set of questions and then can add their comments.

Your sellers can easily see the feedback provided by each agent. This makes your job much easier as the listing agent, because the unfiltered comments are there for the sellers to see, and they recognize this feedback as coming from the market, rather than just from you. In today's market where pricing is often an issue, the sellers may ask you for a price reduction when they see the market feedback!

 

Should I Buy a Home Now?

by Real Pro Systems

I'm often asked if this is a good time to buy a home. Some clients are concerned that home prices may fall further than they have already. They are assuming that the best course of action is to wait for the bottom in the market and then buy. The problem with this approach is that you don't know where the bottom is until you see it in the rear view mirror, meaning until you've missed it!

Home prices are one factor in determining your cost of ownership, but so are interest rates and financing availability. Even though interest rates have gone up in the last six months, they are still near historic lows. Since your monthly mortgage payment is a combination of paying down your principal and paying the interest owed, if home prices come down a little further but interest rates go up, it could cost you even more to service a mortgage on an identical home!

While a home is a major investment, it is also the center of your personal life. It's important to live in a home that reflects your taste and values, yet is within your financial "comfort zone." To that end, it may be more important to lock in today's relatively low interest rates and low home prices, rather than to hope for a further break in prices in the future.

Please give me a call if I can be of any assistance in determining how much home you can afford in today's market.
