  • "Santa Monica Neighborhood Among Most Expensive In LA" - Patch.com"Real estate in California is expensive, but in Los Angeles County it can seem exorbitant – like that record-breaking $1 billion property that hit the market in Beverly Hills. Yup, that's billion with a 'B.' But what about average home prices countywide? PropertyShark, a website that provides in-depth real estate data, analyzed neighborhoods in Los Angeles and found the median home prices in Quarter 3 of 2018. Surprisingly, they found that L.A. area's top 20 most expensive neighborhoods are overall twice as pricey as NYC's 20 most expensive..."
  • "C.A.R. releases its 2019 California Housing Market Forecast" - PRNewsWire.com"A combination of high home prices and eroding affordability is expected to cut into housing demand and contribute to a weaker housing market in 2019, and 2018 home sales will register lower for the first time in four years, according to a housing and economic forecast released today by the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®' (C.A.R.).

  • "Who is taking a stand on affordable housing in Pittsburgh?" - NextPittsburgh.com"Since the turn of the century, Pittsburgh has emerged as a story of reinvention and rebirth in the face of a changing economy. While the gains from our emergence as a hub of research and technology are real and hard-won, they don’t tell the whole story. Since the year 2000, housing — perhaps the most basic human right — has become significantly less affordable in Pittsburgh. According to a study commissioned by the city’s Affordable Housing Task Force, the average cost of a rental home has increased by $116 monthly, far exceeding the rate of inflation, while the median income of renters has remained stagnant at around $26,000 per year..."

offrs Review: Team up and delegate (don’t be selfish)

offrs Review: Team up and delegate (don’t be selfish)

Real estate pros from all walks of life know that agent teams are efficient both financially and time-wise. But what's stopping you from forming one... let's review. Vive lequipe!

As seen on AgentsOnline.net...

 

Okay, so we all know that teams are where it’s at… safety in numbers after all. But the work to find and set up a team often throws us for a loop. You’ve crafted your business to run as smoothly as it does and the prospect of accidentally up-ending it now is likely more daunting than the promise of true efficiency that any team can offer… we get it. But here’s a simple thought that may help you re-evaluate this view… stop being selfish. Yup, there’s another side to this equation. While you were focused on your operations, your business and your needs, another half out there (with a hole the shape of you) has been staring off into the horizon, unable to do what they love because you won’t give them the joy of doing so (CPAs love their job… and so do your peers).

Here’s another kicker… they’re good... they’re really good. So your concern about mixing processes or training them to get “up to speed?” Yeah, they’ve likely got enough experience to write a book on the subject themselves. Okay, so we might be bolstering it a bit, but the tip for you to ponder here is… you just don’t know how exponentially your business could grow if you were to bring on someone that specializes in those undertakings you loathe until you explore the option directly. Go on… be bold. Talk with someone you trust and see if serendipity arises. Buck up, team up and delegate. Onward!

Curious how to cultivate the first or newest member of your team? Here's an article we wrote on the matter. And if you're looking for real estate listing leads, then you're going to want to check out all that offrs has to offer!
