4 Ways To Be Among The Best Real Estate Agents In The Country!

What does it take to be considered one of the best real estate agents? REAL Trends and the Wall St. Journal are taking names for 2018’s “The 1000” list. It’s their annual ranking of “the top sales professionals in the United States by transaction sides and sales volume.”

It’s typically an interesting list, but we take issue with them calling those on it the “Best Real Estate Agents in America,” and for several reasons.

Want to be the best without resorting to tricks and gimmicks? – and build a website that works for you.

When a real estate consumer is looking for “the best” agent in his or her market, how many deals the agent does or how much money she makes isn’t at the top of the list of qualities they’re seeking.

The buyer or seller, at least according to recent studies, values “responsiveness” overall. Then, local knowledge is high on the list. In fact, the agent’s productivity, at least according to a Zillow Group study, is fourth on a list of six criteria consumers use to judge the best real estate agents.

We all know that even the most productive agents can give lousy customer service, so naming the top producers as “the best” agents is, at least to us, misleading.

Real Estate Myth Busters – How To Avoid Spreading These 3 “Location” Fairy Tales:

Here’s a real estate myth doled out to agents from a so-called expert at, of all places, RealtorMag:

“If your seller’s home is in a part of the neighborhood that borders a highway, train tracks, or an industrial area, it’ll likely fetch a lower price.”

This is the perfect example of why you should always consult with more than one expert when it comes to helping a client with an investment as large and important as real estate.

Although his wisdom sounds logical, the truth is a bit more complicated than the aforementioned expert seems to understand.

Do your research, be a motivated agent, and you can bust some of the more common myths among real estate consumers about what impacts home values.

Baby boomer real estate leads: 3 strategies you absolutely have to know (and some tips):

Baby boomer real estate leads – as this generation ages, generating leads in this important segment becomes critical to real estate success. “I think the baby boomers are still going to pick up books in the grocery store but everyone else is looking online first, researching second and then picking up the phone.” This from a very young agent in a thread at Active Rain.

Myths like that one about baby boomers abound and it’s useless to try to dispel all of them, especially to younger generations.

Suffice it to say, however, 87 percent of younger boomers – adults between the ages of 54 and 64—are regular internet users while nearly 70 percent of older boomers (65 to 72) use the internet, according to Pew Research.

So, despite the aformentioned agent’s vision of a doddering oldster, browsing the books at the local supermarket, the fact is that a boomer is just as likely to find his or her agent and next home via the Internet as any other generation.

Beware! There are certain things members of this demographic won’t bother telling you about themselves, but they’ll expect you to know. Baby boomer real estate leads aren’t what you might think.

What Buyers Should and Should Not Request to Be Fixed:

When you locate a home you need, it is vital to pick your fights with regards to repairs asked for from a home examination. While it would unquestionably be decent for the merchant to settle each and every home review issue before you put your cash down, there are just such a large number of repairs most venders will focus on – particularly in a dealer’s market.

Real Estate Blogging (7 critical lessons)

Real estate blogging – loved, hated, promoted, ridiculed. Nevertheless, I just read an article about real estate blogging “do’s and don’ts,” that was the absolute epitome of why we have to be careful from whom we take advice.

Blogging best practices include – typically at the top of the list – breaking up long paragraphs so that they are no longer than five sentences in length.

The aforementioned post about what not to do when real estate blogging started out with a paragraph that is TEN sentences long.

But, wait!

Further into the article there is a paragraph that is EIGHTEEN sentences in length

What happens when a reader is met with a huge block of text?

Most won’t bother reading it.

What else can you learn from sucky real estate blogs? Even better, how can you use these tips to become better at real estate blogging? Read on!
