The Real Estate Group Rules

The group has been growing rapidly so I wanted to take the opportunity again to review some of the most important rules of the group. It seems there are a growing number of people that fail to read rules when they join groups on Google Plus.

I am starting to get really irritated that some continue to want to do as they please instead of following rules. From this point forward if I have warned you about breaking the rules you will not get a third chance. I will BAN you from the group! So if you don't want to listen then do so at your own peril.

1. NO REAL ESTATE LISTINGS - This is not, I repeat not a place to post your listings! Nobody cares you just listed a 3 bedroom ranch in India, Idaho or anywhere else! There are plenty of places to post your listings. Don't do it here. This is a place to learn NOT a place to advertise.

2. No link-litter. If you've found or written an interesting article, or found something to re-share that you think the community needs to see, please share it! But we want to know why you think it's share-worthy.

Not all of us have the time or inclination to click through and see if it means anything to us personally. So write something of value that summarizes why you were intrigued.

This means you MUST have a description with your post or it will get removed.

3. No ads or SPAM. This group is not about personal promotion! It's ok to cite your own work as examples, so long as they are relevant to the community.

For example if you own a tool that will help increase a real estate agents business by all means tell the group about it.

This isn't a place to shout LOOK AT MY WEBSITE! I am a bad ass Realtor - I am the BEST SEO DUDE, Look at ME over here.

No LOCAL Posts - Do you think when you post about the real estate market in California that anyone else cares but maybe those in California? Trust me they don't. You won't get any interaction on it so don't post it.

Posts to the group should be relevant to the masses not a small segment of readers.

If you're not sure, ask yourself this question: Will what I'm about to post encourage discussion within the community? If not, it's SPAM!

This is my good friend Oren Klaff, Venture Capitalist and author of Pitch Anything

What does this have to do with you? Everything!!

This is just a sample of what Oren ( and I teach for Realtors) that is not the same old features and benefits presentations most everyone gives now to sellers, and in some cases buyers...

This is a fresh, intriguing, and brand new approach to giving your presentation...potential clients especially Luxury Home Clients are so uninterested and bored with 'old stuff"...they have heard it over and over again before...

Watch this webinar and get some ideas on a way more successful approach to your presentations...and also what not to do...

This may only be up for the next 72 hours or so...

To hire a property manager or not to hire a property manager.  That is the question.  
Many property owners are taking care of their own property. While it's certainly possible, is it always a good idea? Do you really need a property manager?

HERE'S A CLOSING GIFT IDEA:  Will be giving this to my clients today at their closing.  A huge 'S' lit up (their last name starts with 'S') and I thought it would go nicely in their home theater.  Got it at Home Goods ... the pic doesn't do it justice!

Whether you’re purchasing buyer-leads from a portal like Zillow, or generating them yourself, the need to pre-qualify the prospects you’re generating remains the same. Today we're discussing some key scripts & strategies you can use to help identify the valuable, motivated, qualified leads worth investing time in.
So you're getting leads -- but are they worth your valuable time, or just a waste of your time? In yesterday's broadcast, we started a discussion of buyer and seller prequalification, and introduced some key scripts and strategies you can use to help identify the valuable, motivated, qualified leads worth investing time in.

Home Staging  - 
 
Write your #home staging cost off when doing your taxes! IRS Publication 523 has statement explaining that home sellers can write off selling expenses such as (commissions, advertising, which would includes home staging, legal fees and loan charges or points). That said, a staging consultation is not a taxable deduction. You must advertise the fact either through your Real Estate Agent or by publicly announcing that your home has been Professionally staged.

Real Estate businesses are you making these MASSIVE mistakes in your marketing efforts? http://elmocopy.com/warning-copywriting-for-real-estate-busineses-isnt-for-wimps/
Years ago, back when I was stupid about marketing, I tried writing all of my own copy. For some weird reason, I didn't even think that it mattered how I wrote an advertisement for my product, I just threw a description of what I was selling on a page, and left it to die a horrible death.

 Selling real estate is a marathon – not a sprint – and part of pacing yourself is ensuring that the limited time in your day is going towards dollar-productive activities that actually make you money. When it comes to prequalification, we can’t stress enough how important it is to identify & focus on the best prospects first.
We've coached thousands of agents over the last couple of decades, and one of the consistent concerns we hear is "I need more leads!" Does this sound like you?
