Never Stop Learning about your Local Real Estate Market; Yes the Internet helps offer lots of information to Web Visitors about Real Estate, and all kinds of Statistics are available online – but the Experienced Knowledge of a working Real Estate Professional is Gold. Being in the trenches of your local market enables Good Real Estate Agents to become an invaluable resource to their Sellers and Buyers, but that knowledge sometimes becomes stale because it has not been nurtured on a Global Basis. Make an appointment with yourself for about an hour weekly and lookup The Real Estate Reports in your MLS. You should familiarize yourself with all the listings that are happening in your Farm Areas; it you do it regularly it will only be 10 to 20 New Listings; Get to know who listed the properties and keep an eye on how they are farming in your area. Lookup up and tackle Expired Listings as they come online; and even if you do not work Expired listings try to formulate a reason why the property did not sell. Look up your Global Statistics for the whole area you work in and see where turnover has increased; from time to time certain areas start seeing faster sales and that could help you decide on an additional or better farming area. Lookup up your statistics for Days on Market as well the Median Home Prices in your area; these numbers will help you with your listing presentation – and you will not have to guess. Make an appointment with yourself to Nurture your local Real Estate Knowledge – it is a great investment in your career.
