Attn: RedX Users - Question: Can you set up your search to go back through expired listings 3-5 years ago? There are homes that failed to sell then that have not come back on the market...and NOW is the time to consider selling. Love some input from RedX Rock Stars as I am a RedX Newbie in Training.
Question - If you could get rid of Facebook, would you? Let me preface by saying I get business from Facebook. We've closed 7 transactions YTD, not to mention the awesome networking. But, wouldn't it be nice if all the business networking was on LinkedIn so Facebook could be friends, family and clients vs. 80% Realtors and industry contacts? Just tired of missing updates from those I would like to follow as a result of being bombarded with political opinions, cat photos and comments from "friend of a friend" I don't know. Sorry, just annoyed with Facebook this morning and cannot help but think there is a better place for industry networking on line
Hey, Michael, I know I'm sort of bending the rules here - and feel free to delete this if you feel I've crossed the line - but I wanted to let people know about the 3rd Annual REBarCamp St. Louis on October 17th. If your in or around the area, love to see the Raise The Bar Rock Stars. We will have a gathering the night before for out of towners (WordPress has been the initial request, theme is TBD). Check it out http://rebarcampstlouis.eventbrite.com/ If you Tweet about the event hashtag #rebcstl
Anyone out there use a 3rd party company to coordinate showings? It's common in our market. Listen to this First! An agent requested a showing on a listing that expired in October 2008 (yep, 2008!). I received a call from our Showing Company and explained there must be an error as the property is not listed. I sent the agent an email to inquire why she attempted to schedule the showing in the first place. Have not heard back. I checked the MLS, inactive. Google search, nothing came up. Tonight, I received a call from the owner threatening legal action as "there is fraud going on". He could not have been a bigger a$$hole over the phone and hung up on me as I tried to gather his information to follow up. Their condo is #303. Currently, #203 and #302 are Active in the MLS, has to be an error. I do not see how I am responsible for what is the equivalent of a misdial/wrong number. I don't receive angry calls, so I take it a little more seriously than I probably should. Please chime in case I'm missing something.
Brent, not sure how to opt out from a single site. For example, we use Point2Agent for syndicating for 60+ sites in addition to the IDX that tosses your listings out there to thousands of sites (and no control on how they idx feeds are presented on those sites).
If you want to convey information about your buyer, convey it in an email...pass along a note to the listing agent. In a multi-offer scenario, it can be helpful to tip the scales for a buyer (watch out for Fair Housing violations) Don't waste my time & my seller's time. The offer is either a good offer or it's not. This is a financial transaction, just moving money.
That's fine...amount of work, in my mind, is porportionate to the difficulty of the transaction. Smooth transaction, less work. My contention is the amount of work is not about the price. It's about the experience of the client.
A gadget that filters conversations within a 20 mile radius and identifies conversations that have the potential to lead to a listing...or anything else that will help us get out of this low inventory hell!
