A buyer booklet helps you present yourself as a market expert when you meet with a client for the first time. Buyers need guidance.

CMA Mania coaching listings marketing Feb 03, 2022

Why do I call this CMA Mania? Because I am looking to the evolution of the CMA (Comparative Market Analysis.) Frankly, there are too many elaborate CMAs being used by real estate agents today. Elaborate CMAs were necessary up until the early 2000s before Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com existed.

REAL ESTATE IS CHANGING

Photo seduction is trying to entice buyers to get out from behind their computer, to leave work or home, to get out from their car, to want to come to see the house in person. Currently, I find, especially a listing with a lot of functional obsolescence, you need more people to come in the house.

Photo Seduction

Photo Seduction is the ability to get more traffic to the house. The more buyers you get to come to look, the more buyers you get interested in, thus increasing demand. Also, getting...

The number one skill set of a new agent or a buyer's agent is to be a #1 house finder. You can not wait for your buyer to find the house, you need to find the house for the buyer. The “super-agent” does this and makes the most amount of money selling the most amount of houses. The “super-agent” is able to do this because he or she is not waiting for the house to be picked off from the leftover inventory on MLS.
