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!

What's the most effective way to find motivated sellers with direct mail? Is it better to send out blind offers or blanket your market with postcard solicitations?

I've tried them both at one time or another, and these are my thoughts on the pros and cons of each approach...

Trust is important!!
You and your family have decided to sell your house. It is now time to choose a real estate professional to help with the process. One of the major attributes this agent must possess is trustworthiness. To what degree do you need to trust them?

Real Estate Tech, what do you need to know.

I came across this site which is a great resource for the latest in real estate tech and news. They have up to date industry news, commercial and residential reviews and more. Looks like a really good source especially if you are just starting out. One of their latest articles is a review of a site and commercial loan calculator. You can read more in the link.
#businesstips   #reviews   #realestate   #tech   #websitereview  
Although there are numerous calculators designed to help people when buying commercial property, none works in the same way as Fit Small Business. With this calculator, existing and potential clients have access to a descriptive guide. This accurate loan estimate helps clients better plan for buying a property.
