OTHER HELPFUL INFO

Marketing Tab

Listings are hot now as inventory is very tight.  If you are not getting or going after listings now, you should be.  The old adage “List-to-Last”  applies.  If you are not good at or comfortable with presenting at a listing appointment, watch the 3-part videos below, that should help.



To get the listings you need to market.  Target a community that has a high turn over.  To begin, go to GA MLS and pick communities very close to you. See how many homes have sold in the last 6 – 12 months.  If the community has sold 10 – 20% * of homes within that period, that’s a high turnover and you want to target that community.  Get a LISTING ONLY marketing website,  create or buy a marketing postcard series for home owners, and put your website and phone number on the card, making sure that you are giving the homeowner some sort of knowledge that helps them.  Do not create a “call me to list your home” post card, no one is going to call you from that.  That line needs to be ON the postcard somewhere, but not be the ENTIRE focus of the postcard.  Your goal is to get them to your site, give them information to wet their whistle, and then to find out more they need to enter their information and phone number. You will then have an opportunity to call that individual and hopefully make a connection to come to see their home or answer any questions.

* To find the percentage, go to the tax records in the MLS and find the total number of homes (TNH) in the community. Then divide the total number of homes sold (THS) in the last 6 months by the total number of homes (TNH) in the community. Formula: (THS / TNH X 100) – OR – 49 (THS) divided by 220 (TNH) X 100. Make sure not to flip the first 2 numbers around as that will give you an incorrect percent.

ONLINE MAILING: If you need to mail cards that has a handwritten, personalized feel, without having to write, lick or stamp any cards, check out an awesome website called postable.com.  You can send thank you cards, holiday cards, etc., without having to leave the comfort of your desk.  Find out more information at postable.com. Need postcards? A few great companies are postcardmania.com and expresscopy.com.  Both can handle labeling and mailings so you don’t have to do that.

Listing Agents, here’s an efficient way to notify selling agents that their offer has been received, along with other easy ways to communicate with selling agents to minimize your time on the phone.

  1. Create an email with the word “offer” in the name, something like “offer.agentname@yahoo.com“.
  2. Put this email in your Remarks AND Private Remarks with instructions regarding submitting offers when you are listing it on your MLS. (complete list of sample language here)
  3. Create an auto-response in your “offer” email, so that when an offer is received, the receiving agent will receive a response that says something like “Thank you for submitting your offer. Your offer will be reviewed and you will receive an email/phone call within X hours/days/weeks regarding the status of this offer”. This will set the agent’s expectations, and would mean that whenever an incoming offer hits your email, an outgoing message will AUTOMATICALLY be sent to the receiving agent and they will have no idea that it may or may not be an auto email, unless of course you add a phrase that states “This is an automatic email from our offer system, please do not respond to this email with questions regarding your offer. An agent will contact you about this offer within X hours/days/weeks, etc”.
  4. If at this point it is a multiple offer scenario, you can send a canned response to the agent via email stating that there are multiple offers and please send highest and best….(see complete sample language)
  5. If it is under contract you can also do the same as number 4 (see complete sample language)
