MRED's Wednesday Tip Sheet
for April 10, 2013
Quick Tips to Help You to a Winning Week!
Hot Tip #1
Does your website deliver what consumers demand?
90% of consumers search online during their home buying process
Does that describe your clients?
Does your website search provide great search capabilities and keep visitors on your site?
How cost effective is your web site?
iHomefinder can provide powerful listing searches and website solutions at terrific prices.
Hot Tip #2
Why it's not good business to send clients to 3rd party websites
You don't control what listings people see
You don't control what contact information they see
You don't know how updated those sites are
You should provide the best and most timely MLS information
iHomefinder offers the tools with which YOU can control the consumer experience.
Hot Tip #3
Exterior Building type - Did you enter all materials?
MRED's Compliance Department has received increased reports of only one type - e.g., brick - being entered
At showings, people are finding Block (cinder or split), Aluminum siding, etc., particularly along the sides of the building
When a buyer sees this, consideration of the property is stopped in its tracks
Don't surprise your peers, or even your seller - provide complete information on all aspects of the property, including the exterior
Hot Tip #4
How many clients across the system
have "favorited" or "rejected" your listings
Find this out very easily!
Access My Listings/Transactions from the icon in the upper right of the screen ()
- Click the Listing Number of the listing in question
- Click Activity tab
Voila! And you can share this data with the seller
