dayton real estate: Does Your Client Remember You? - 06/22/08 05:01 AM
 

What do you do to remind your client that you exist? I email my 500+ contact database a monthly newsletter, I send eCards on holidays, I mail postcards to everyone twice a year, I call my past clients twice a year, and I send a Xmas card. What do you do to make sure your client remembers you and increase referrals?

dayton real estate: Your Summer Home Garden - 06/19/08 06:33 PM
I have a black thumb, not a green thumb. Everything I plant in my home garden usually dies, so I can use all the tips I get! I thought I'd share the garden advice I received in the real estate office today from two fellow Realtors. Apparently, slugs and snails cannot tolerate caffeine. Spraying coffee on your home garden repels these pests. Use the coffee in moderation to avoid harming your plants though!

dayton real estate: The FSBO Garage Sale Effect - 06/19/08 09:17 AM

Statistically, Realtors sell homes for more money in less time than a FSBO (For Sale By Owner). How much more? Well, my agency's average sale price to list price is 98% and we sell homes in an average of 78 days. That's very quick considering we have the least days on the market of ALL the agencies in the Dayton area. It is reported that the average home sold by owner sells for 90% of asking price. If those home owners hired a Realtor and paid a 7% commission then they would still pocket 1 - 3% more money versus selling … (5 comments)

dayton real estate: Rental Market EXPLOSION! - 06/18/08 07:36 AM
I've noticed in the Southwest Ohio area that there are a gazillon renters! I'm shocked because interest rates are so low right now, and it is a GREAT time to buy! What is the rental market like in your area? One of the 11 properties I have listed right now in Kettering, Ohio (a suburb of Dayton) is for sale or lease. I've received 10 times more phone calls, text messages, and emails on that one property than any other listing. I heard the rental market was really good, but I didn't know it was that good!

dayton real estate: How Do You Handle Your Business Finances? - 06/17/08 09:29 AM
We don't have steady salaries as Realtors. In fact, our salaries are SO unsteady that we went from 3,000 Realtors in the Dayton, Ohio area to 2,500 Realtors this year. So how do you manage your business expenses?
Track your expenses. Keep a detailed log of everything you spend for a month or so to see where your money goes. Quickbooks is an excellent tool to help you keep track.
Anticipate your income and work backwards. If you want to make $50,000 this year based on what you think you need to live on, then figure out how many closings you need … (4 comments)

dayton real estate: Social Networking - 06/15/08 06:03 AM
It is reported that 87% of home buyers today find their homes online AND 80% of home buyers are Gen X and Gen Y. What are you doing to capture these buyers and help your sellers get their homes SOLD? I personally have a MySpace, Facebook, and FriendFeed account, as well as over 20 other social networking accounts online. I've met clients through these tools. I also utilize the latest technology, such as text messaging.
How are you using social networking in your business, or did a Realtor sell your home using these tools?

dayton real estate: What Sells a Home? - 06/15/08 05:55 AM
Everyone knows kitchens and baths sell homes, but is it also price? Marketing? Advertising, and what type? Social networking i.e. Active Rain? Utilizing technology such as text messaging? Branding? Open Houses? Listing in the MLS? The truth is, I don't know. But what if you chose a Realtor that DIDN'T do all those things?
What do you think sells a home?

dayton real estate: Furniture Redesign Defined - 06/15/08 05:15 AM

Sometimes the most successful decorating approach for your home is to juggle around what you already own versus buying more furniture and accessories. This strategy is called "redesign".
Who can benefit from furniture redesign?
Those who want a home design change Those who have great furniture pieces but don't know how to use them Those who have problem rooms (bad layout, lack of space, etc.) Just because a room is square-foot challenged doesn't mean it can't be your favorite room! To redesign a small space make good furniture choices, use smart lighting, and have lots of bookcases.

dayton real estate: Why You Should Embrace $3.99 Gasoline - 06/11/08 08:11 AM

If gas were cheap, there would be no incentive to change. No one would focus on conservation. Currently, hybrid vehicles are so hot that the auto industry can't produce enough to satisfy demand. Let's face it, the price of gas will probably continue to climb and the only solution is to quit relying on oil. Oil isn't the only natural resource the nation has focused on lately. There is a movement to go green with household products and green building materials. I am using energy efficient and earth friendly products in my home, who else is embracing the change?

dayton real estate: Best Area Restaurant? - 06/09/08 12:43 PM
I recently posted this topic on Trulia voices (see link below). If you haven't joined Trulia voices yet, then I highly recommend it. Although it focuses on Real Estate FAQ's, there are all sorts of information on the website. I'm a happy contributor and reader!
I'm curious, what is the best restaurant in your area? In Dayton, I'd say Thai 9 - great sushi and thai dishes! For breakfast, Golden Nugget - they have great pancakes!
