4 Tips for Hosting a Great Open House Event

Big Block Realty wants all our agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success.

Learning how to successfully market your listings is vital for real estate professionals.

Building a successful career with a 100% commission real estate business is all about learning everything you can to get your clients the results they need.

Hosting an open house is real estate 101, but it never hurts to hear some new ideas on old fashioned sales techniques. See if these might work for your next open house event.

Open House 3

1.) Make It Classy-

Give your open house a little bump by hosting an art show. Find some local talent in need of a venue and let them cover the walls in their work.

Contact your nearest university and offer the venue to student artists. Hire some local musicians to play some elegant jazz for a few hours.

Offer some wine and cheese. People love a little free entertainment, and it may draw in some folks who wouldn’t normally attend an open house.

2.) Hire A Caterer-

Trying to sell a really high end piece of property? Go all in and hire a great caterer.

The food will keep prospects around a bit longer, and good eats are a fantastic way to start the conversation with visitors.

3.) Invite The Whole Neighborhood-

Get the neighbors involved.

They may have friends in the market for a new home.

Everyone wants their friends to move into their neighborhood.

The neighbors can be great lead generators. Invite them to stop by with their house hunting friends.

They’ll encourage them to buy. Take advantage of the power of friendship!

4.) Yard Signs-

While your internet promotions are invaluable, don’t underestimate the value of good old fashioned yard signs. Put them at every intersection and along the sides of the roads.

Put out a lot of them.

You really can’t overdo this low-tech marketing tool.

3 Tips for Crafting Great Listing Presentations

At Big Block Realty, we want to train our agents to be top performers for their clients and for themselves. Outstanding service is our top priority.

Big Block Realty wants all our agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success.

Building a reputation for a 100% commission real estate business is about more than just making sales. It’s about earning our client’s trust.

So a homeowner has contacted you and expressed interest in possibly listing their home with you. That’s great, right? Music to your ears? Now it’s time to start thinking about a listing presentation.

Listing presentations are a crucial part of winning the listing. You have to convince the homeowner you’re capable of getting the job done. It’s about building a relationship and earning trust.

And you can’t do that with a canned listing presentation. You need to reach the homeowner and show them you can meet their individual needs. Here a few tips for crafting a great listing presentation.

1.) Personalize It-

Like we already said, your listing presentation needs to be customer specific. Learn about the homeowners by talking and listening to them and address their needs in your presentation.

Show them how you’ve sold similar homes in the past. Let them see you’ve been successful selling a home like theirs.

Speak about houses that have recently sold nearby to let them know you’ve done your homework about the local market.

2.) Make It Professional-

Don’t make a boring PowerPoint and call it done. You can do better than that. And with about a zillion real estate agents out there, you really have to do better than that.

There’s all kinds of great software available for you to make a listing presentation with some pop to it. If you don’t know how to do this stuff, or are intimidated by the idea, you need to get over it.

Figure it out, or find someone who can teach you how to get the job done with some modern style. You want to show your potential client you have some style and confidence.

3.) Highlight Your Skills-

Have you got a good record for selling homes quickly? Do you have a considerable network of fellow agents to help find buyers? What is it about you that makes you stand out?

Be sure to let your potential clients know what they’re getting if they decide to list with you. If you’re really good at your job, let them know it.

At Big Block Realty, we want each and every one of agents to have the helpful tools that will increase their success.

3 Tips for Effective Online Lead Generation

Big Block Realty wants all our agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success.

Learning how to successfully generate and manage leads is vital for real estate professionals.

Building a successful career with a 100% commission real estate business is all about learning everything you can to help new clients and build relationships.

We all know how important leads are. Without them you’re dead in the water.

Lead Generation on Black-Golden Watch Face.

Today we have all kinds of great ways for generating leads.

Internet marketing and social media have opened up a whole new world for agents looking for potential clients.

But there are some common mistakes in online lead generation many agents make. Here some tips for generating leads online.

1.) Understand Your Social Media-

So you’ve set up a Facebook account and decided to Tweet. That’s great. Real estate agents all over the country are doing the same.

But if you aren’t posting with any kind of consistency and you don’t bother to learn what’s working and what’s not, it’s all for naught.

If your content is awesome but you only bother posting every six weeks, it’s pointless. Set up a posting schedule and stick to it.

Use analytics to see what’s working and where.

Figure out where your followers are engaging with you the most and go to work there.

Dedicate your time to reaching out there and limit or reduce the time you’re spending on other avenues.

2.) Segment Your Emails-

Depending on where your leads are in the sales process, they don’t need to receive the same email.

People who just bought a house don’t need to hear about your new listings.

Sending people the wrong email tells them you’re not really interested in the details and will get your email trashed.

Don’t waste their time.

3.) Love All Your Leads-

Never discount a lead. You never know what’s going to happen in the future.

Stay in their mind with effective nurturing communication.

Don’t become a bother, but try to stay fresh enough that they think of you first if their circumstances change or they need to recommend an agent to a friend or family member.

Big Block Realty wants its agents to learn to use the helpful tools that will increase their success.

Consider Big Block Realty if you would like an opportunity for a career with a 100% commission real estate brokerage!

Real estate allows you to use your networking skills like no other career out there.

Top California Brokerage Tips – How to Manage Client Expectations for Real Estate Success

ID-10048101Real estate is a business of working with people.

There are often unknowns when approaching a real estate deal, but these can be much less stressful for home buyers and sellers when a real estate professional is committed to managing their expectations.

As a real estate professional, it is your job to prepare your clients for certain challenges that may arise.

Building a reputation for a 100% commission real estate business begins with how you behave toward your clients as well as in your personal life. Dedicate the time and resources needed for build the image you want to project.

As a leading flat fee broker in California, we strive to provide our agents with helpful tools that will increase their success. Consider Big Block Realty if you would like to begin an exciting career with a 100% commission real estate brokerage!

Planning, communication and flexibility are some things you can incorporate into your business practices to better manage your client expectations and leave happier more satisfied clients in your wake.

Another way to think about managing expectations is preparing your client for possible outcomes. This can apply to both positive and negative situations.

1. Don’t Scare Your Clients

As a real estate professional, you have an idea of all sorts of worst case scenarios for real estate deals. But sharing this information with your clients will only incite fear and panic.

Instead, prepare your clients for the most likely outcomes. You can tell them that there are certain unpredictable elements, but that by working with you they can feel confident you will handle whatever comes up.

It is important to make clients aware of a few possible (but unlikely) negative scenarios. That way when the negative things don’t happen, they will be relieved and encouraged.

2. Teach Clients What They Can Expect

Clients can get emotional in the home buying or selling process. Buying a home is probably the most important purchase a person will make in his or her lifetime. It’s natural to expect they will enter the process with emotions running high.

However, while the process is complex, you must be able to walk your clients through it from start to finish. Change can be challenging, but when you let your clients know what to expect, they can deal with and minimize their anxiety in the midst of change.

Buyers who move too quickly can sometimes feel pressure to buy a certain home or property and then feel buyer’s remorse. This can lead to buyers backing out of deals.

To ensure that deals are a success from start to finish, real estate professionals should teach clients what to expect and let them know some feelings of uncertainty are normal and can be expected.

3. Have Compassion for Clients 

The world of buying and selling houses can seem very complex from a layman’s perspective. As real estate professionals, it is important that we have compassion and empathy for clients as they approach this process.

We aren’t just helping them find a house or piece of property, we are helping them find a home for their family. It’s crucial to pay attention to the whole person and take into account all mitigating circumstances that might be affecting the process.

By putting ourselves into their shoes, we can begin to imagine what customers are feeling and when we have empathy for what they are experiencing, we are more effective at being real estate practitioners.  

Here at Big Block Realty, agents keep their entire commissions while enjoying the perks of working with an industry leader. As

As California’s leading 100% commission real estate brokerage, we allow you to leverage your potential in a way that no other industry or field can. If you’d like to learn more about a career with Big Block Realty, we’d love to hear from you!

Open House Success Tips from Top Flat Fee Brokerage California

When you associate with a leading 100% commission real estate brokerage like Big Block Realty, you get the tools and training you need to be successful. One part of the life of a California Realtor is promoting your real estate listings. A great way for a California real estate broker to promote listings is by holding an open house.

OpenHouse-logoHere are a few simple open house tips from a top flat fee brokerage.

Tidy Up-  When selling a piece of California real estate, you want to appeal to home buyers. A neat and tidy house will always show better to potential buyers. Remove anything from the home that might be offensive or vulgar. Simple and clean go a long way when it comes to selling California real estate listings. Just make sure your listed property is ready for visitors and your open house will be a success!

Send the Sellers Out- When browsing California real estate properties, potential buyers want to be free to look with a critical eye. Sellers should not be present because they are too emotionally connected with the home. You want visitors to feel free of ANY pressure during their visit, and that includes the sellers.

No Pets- With pets come odors so it’s best to remove them prior to holding an open house. There are options such as doggie daycare or even asking a friend to let pets come for a visit during home showings.

Minimize Family Photos- Similar to cleaning a home of pet-related items, it’s also good to advise sellers to minimize their family photos. Build a nice, neutral, blank slate for your open house attendees by taking some of the homeowners’ personal touches out of the picture.

These are just a few tips for making your next open house a success.

Here at Big Block Realty, we are California’s leading 100% commission real estate brokerage. As part of our team, you will keep your entire commission while still enjoying all the perks of working with a virtual broker industry leader such as Big Block.

A career in real estate allows you to leverage your potential in a way that no other industry or field can.
