Why You Should Help Your Real Estate Agent with Social Media

Why You Should Help Your Real Estate Agent With Social Media

Social Media has become a trendy, and very successful means of marketing real estate. So whether you’re selling a home or buying real estate, you should get your head around the concept of social media, as well as the three most successful social media sites that can be used for this purpose: LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.

Once you do this, you can help your real estate agent market your home or try and find a suitable property using social media.

Social Media

The term social media involves the use of various electronic and Internet tools for the purpose of sharing and discussing information. In essence it’s a powerful way to share knowledge with blinding speed, and as a result, all types of markets – including real estate – are getting smarter, and operating faster. 

Social media allows those marketing property, specifically real estate agents, to connect directly with consumers on a one-to-one level. It also enables them to get to many more people, as those sharing their sites and messages pass ideas on to other people. This is where you can play an important role, by sharing their marketing campaign with your friends … who share with their friends … and so on. 

Successful Social Media Sites and Networking Tools

LinkedIn is a social networking site that is mostly used by professionals. It has more than 225-million members from more than 200 countries, with 74-million members in the US alone. Real estate agents find this to be an invaluable networking tool that connects them to other professionals. 

Twitter is an online social networking and micro-blogging service with more than 500-million users generating more than 340-million tweets very day. So if you are selling a home you can tweet to your followers … who you can encourage to tweet to their followers … drawing attention to each new initiative your real estate agent launches. 

Facebook is an online social networking site that enables people to stay in contact with one another. In addition to personal profiles, there are common-interest user groups and business pages. There’s nothing to stop you from starting a FB page for your home for sale, or asking your agent to do this for you. Alternatively, you can help promote your agent’s FB page where your home is listed. 

Benefits of Using Social Media to Market Real Estate

One of the benefits of using social media is that most people are distrustful of advertisements – and this applies as much to those buying a motor vehicle to those buying real estate – but people in general trust recommendations from other consumers. And the various social media allow people to give direct recommendations. So whether you’re selling a home or buying real estate, it really is a way to go!

All three of the social media networks mentioned above are growing beyond belief, though FB has the largest following, followed by Twitter, and then LinkedIn. 

The keys to success when using any social media are:

  • Don’t spam
  • Always add value
  • Connect with people
  • Be personable
  • Create communities
  • Join communities

You also need a strategy for successful marketing of real estate using the social media. So be sure to choose a real estate agent who understands social media and knows how to make it work for you.

Six Top Tips For Clueless Buyers

Top Tips for Clueless Buyers

If you are buying a property, but feel that you are clueless, don’t despair. We have compiled a list of six top tips for clueless buyers.

Buying a home can be a daunting task, particularly for first time home buyers; but rest assured you are not alone. You are also not one of the first people looking to buy a home that starts out feeling totally clueless.

Six Tips to Help Clueless Buyers Buy a Home

  1. Clueless buyers don’t understand the basics about mortgages. When buying a house that needs to be financed, it is essential to understand the way it works. For instance, lenders are not obliged to charge the same fees to all their clients. Fees may be negotiated. You also don’t have to close with the lender who originally pre-approved your mortgage bond.
  2. While on the subject of mortgages, getting pre-approved for a loan is another really good tip for clueless buyers. It shows sellers you are committed to buying and indicates that you can afford their price.
  3. Down payments are another factor that many people buying a house can’t fathom. For instance, a large percentage believes they must have 5% of the purchase price to buy a property. In fact, if the loan is insured by the Federal Housing Administration, even clueless buyers can get away with as little as a 3.5% down payment.
  4. This may be a no-brainer to most, but a large number of people buying a home don’t even know – realistically – how much they can afford. So before you start looking to buy a home, do the math. List all those things you have to pay for, excluding rent and service bills – factor those in at the end. Often whatever first time home buyers are paying on rent equates with what they can afford to pay on a mortgage – but not always.
  5. Prioritize what you need and what you want. Your needs are essentials – like the number of bedrooms you need to accommodate your family. Your wants will include things a swimming pool or games room. Neighborhood, schools and social services might fall in needs or wants.
  6. Here’s another no-brainer: find the right real estate agent to help you buy a home. Once you know what you can afford and where you want to buy, a good agent you can trust will help you go all the way! This person will help you to understand the offer purchase and do whatever he or she can to make she you clinch the deal and buy the home of your dreams.
  • WOULD YOU LOVE TO OWN YOUR OWN HOME?
  • NOT SURE THAT YOU CAN QUALIFY TO OWN YOUR OWN HOME?
  • DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH YOU CAN BUY FOR?

Most Common Mistakes Sellers Make When Selling a Home

Mistakes Sellers Make When They Sell a House

Not all sellers opt to sell a house through an estate agent. Many homeowners try to sell their own houses, sometimes successfully, but not always. Whichever way it goes, there are some typical mistakes sellers make when they try to sell a house.

The Most Common Mistakes Sellers Make When Selling a House

Because sellers are not trained in real estate, they don’t always understand the industry. And because sellers are subjective about the property they are selling, this often affects important decisions in terms of value and price.

But that’s not all. Because sellers are not trained or educated in real estate, they often do opt for assistance from an estate agent. But this same lack of training and education in the industry all too often leads to bad choices. Not all agents are created equal, and some will produce better results than others who try to sell a house. It’s important to work with an experienced estate agent who knows how to determine home values in your area, and ultimately, how to sell a house like yours.

Why Experience Matters When Selling a House

Trained estate agents with experience know that to sell a house, they need to price it right. Most times sellers want more money than their homes are worth, which leads to one of the worst mistakes sellers make: overpricing their property. Leading from this, sellers often choose an estate agent who is willing to market their home at this unrealistically high price. Unfortunately this doesn’t mean the agent will be well equipped to actually sell a house.

It has been said that pricing a house for sale is part science, part art. It does involve comparing the house with others in the same area, and determining what the market is likely to pay. But near-perfect appraisals only come with the experience of selling a house.

So to avoid the mistakes sellers make much too often, engage a qualified estate agent who really does know to sell a house, and who will help you to achieve the best possible price.

How Buyers Search For Homes

Find Out What Your Home is Worth

How to Determine Your Home’s Value

How to Determine Your Home’s Value

So your home is your castle, but that doesn’t mean it is necessarily worth royal prices. While it is probably the biggest single investment you have ever made, it may not even be worth what you originally paid for it. Home values can be very difficult for homeowners to identify, because they often mix the value of a house with the property value.

In the USA, the reality of home values is that the physical structure – the house – which possibly depreciates over time. If your home is going to increase in value, it’s the property value in terms of the land that will grow.

Top Tips to Help you Determine Your Home’s Value

  1. Find out home values for houses that have sold in your neighborhood in the past six months. You can identify asking prices in old real estate advertisements, and the local tax assessor’s office should be able to provide data on assessed home values. But the easiest (and usually most reliable) way to find out if homes listed for sale actually sold, and for how much, is to contact a reputable agent who has easy access to this property value information.
  2. Be sure to compare houses that are similar to your home in terms of size, accommodation, and location. For example, if your home is on a busy street, don’t compare it with a house that is nestled at the end of a quiet dead-end road.
  3. To get an average sales price, total the sales prices of at least five comparable homes and divide by that number. This will give you a reasonably good indication of the value of a house.
  4. If you have spent money remodeling, this will increase the property value, and you can add a percentage of this spend onto the property value.
  5. Be aware that if a potential buyer likes your house but needs a mortgage to buy, the lender may want a professional appraisal.
