5 Tips to Thrive in Today’s Market
The current market situation is wild, no doubt. But we’ve got a few ideas to help you come out on top. Here are five tips you can implement right now to jump ahead in your real estate business.
1. Beef Up Your Marketing
It might seem a little scary, but now is the time to put your foot on the gas when it comes to marketing your brand and your business. The real estate market is still full of potential business and you don’t want to disappear from view. While you have a little more time, invest it in your branding strategy and get in front of those eyeballs.
2. Create More Conversations
Most experts agree that your sphere of influence is your best source for referrals and repeat business. Reach out to your people. Ask them how things are going and if there are any questions you can answer for them. Those small touches will go a long way.
3. Know Your Market Numbers
Real estate changes constantly. What was true last week may not be true today. Study your market and stay up to date on what’s changing. Your future clients want someone who knows what’s going on to help them navigate through their next transaction.
4. Grow Your Sphere
Network with other real estate professionals. Referrals from other areas outside your own could have huge potential for passive income. Go to conferences, join groups, be an active participant in your community and beyond. Keep a list of agents who specialize in areas you don’t. Refer clients to other agents and you will soon reap the benefits of reciprocity.
5. Give Yourself Some Grace
These are challenging times and you won’t be able to keep your cool 100% of the time. And that’s OK. Make sure to forgive yourself and accept that you’re human. Get your seven to eight hours of sleep each night to give yourself a leg up. Treat yourself with a spa day or an extra hour at the gym, whichever gives you the most enjoyment. And try to take it easy on the cocktails!
We hope you enjoyed the memes and got a good giggle out of them. Feel free to share them in your socials. We love keeping up with some of our favorite funny Realtors, but we can’t be everywhere all the time. Have you come across any Instagram accounts that crack you up? Please share with us! Let’s all spread the laughs.
We’re here to share the love with you. You’ll find tons of resources here at The Close to help you do your business better. Looking for something in particular that you don’t see? Let us know in the comments.
