Best Tool for Agents Wanting Buyers - What You Pay In Rent

This 'rent calculation' card was why I bought my first home back in 1985.When anyone sees how much they spend on rent, it's depressing and alarming to see how much it adds up to overtime. In my scenario, I was spending $850.00 per month to live in a 2 bdrm Condominium in Martinez, CA. I rented that place from Vince Manzarri for more than 3+ years while working at First American Title in Concord, CA. When I saw how much this totaled over time and how much of his mortgage I had been paying, it really made me upset with "myself" for throwing the better part of my salary into someone else's homeownership.Try it yourself:1. Write down how much you spend/spent on monthly rent?2. How long on average do/did you rent?3. Lookup your monthly rent, then go to the yearly row This should be enough to open the door to "ANY" renter for a conversation about the potential of buying a home vs renting someone else's. Remind your prospects and clients that money spent on rent has no tax benefit, can't be recouped, you're paying off someone else's home and for a few bucks more or less, you can own your own!I created this using Google Drive and a spreadsheet. I didn't factor in equity or interest on money spent, just the raw total of what it costs over time to rent. You would want to make sure you add your branding and contact information to a piece like this, I guarantee renters and first-time buyers will be knocking your door down to buy a home.       "Learn More.

Using Facebook Live for Real Estate Marketing

Facebook "LIVE" has some folks confused and even "LOST" on how to use it for Real Estate and why? Nadine put together a nice piece here on ActiveRain that gives you a place and reason to start. Social media is an incredible resource for Realtors®, and Facebook is one of the best. Not only can you run highly focused, targeted ads, but you can also post videos, GIFs, photographs, and more. Using Facebook Live is another amazing marketing avenue. People love watching live video, and the video stays on Facebook even after you’re finished so people can watch it anytime. Here are a few ways to leverage Facebook Live in your real estate marketing. Virtual Open Houses If you’re tired of putting time and money into open houses that get two visitors, there are other options. Facebook Live can help you reach a much larger audience in a way that is less expensive and safer. You can use Facebook Live to give a tour of a home, highlighting all the best features. Then, you can answer questions live on the video. Not only do you get incredible interaction and reach, but you also have a video that you can use again and again in your marketing of that listing. The live interaction and “behind-the-scenes” feel will make the video especially compelling. A virtual open house doesn’t have to cost a fortune in video equipment and editing. Just use Facebook Live! Live Q&A with Potential Homeowners There are many people interested in buying a home that would love a no-pressure question and answer session. Even individuals who aren’t ready to buy right now could have insightful questions that you could answer and build your expertise. Going live regularly will give you more of an audience, but until that happens, you can simply answer common questions you hear or things clients have asked you recently. Once you’ve done a live video answer questions, what’s next? The videos become incredible marketing assets that you can post on Facebook, share on your website, and more. Q&As help you build your brand, increase the know, like, and trust factors, and position yourself as an expert. Seller Tutorials Educating home buyers is only half of the equation. Sellers need help as well. Share Facebook Lives around a variety of issues sellers face:How to prepare a home for professional photos Staging tips to maximize showings How pricing is set when selling a home What it means for a home to be “buyer focused” (i.e., putting away their collections!)Being an expert on both the buyer and seller side will help you get clients. Listings are the bread and butter of real estate, but buyers are essential as well! Behind the Scenes Videos Most people don’t understand what goes into the work of a Realtor®. Doing Facebook Lives can allow you to give others a “sneak peek” into your world. Show them your work on your print marketing, or your online outreach. When others see what you do, you can demonstrate that you are an expert. You fulfill people’s curiosity, which is a big hook. You also show some true reality, which helps build the know, like, and trust factors. Don’t be shy! People want to know what Realtors® do. You can help people respect your work, which means they won’t fight you on commission. You can also show your personality, humor, and more. Don’t Be Afraid of Facebook Live! Being on video can be intimidating, and being live can feel terrifying. The good news is that you are in control. Facebook Lives can be as long or as short as you’d like. They can be as detailed or general as you want. You create the experience! You might start by doing some Facebook Live videos that are set to share with “only me,” just to get comfortable. Or create a select group of friends to practice with and go live only for them. However you do it, begin experimenting. You’ll discover it’s a lot of fun, and you’ll build your business in a big way!
