  • "The St. Elizabeth Condominiums’ chapel unit is on the market for a cool $1.75M" - Nola.Curbed.com"Despite its beauty, this chapel condo pops in and out of the local real estate market like a tourist on a Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour. Is the property haunted? Well, it’s a former orphanage that was later owned by spooky scribe Anne Rice, so that’s a distinct possibility. Hauntings aside, we’re not sure why St. Elizabeth condo #16 has trouble retaining an owner. It’s the crown jewel of one of New Orleans’ most architecturally and historically significant buildings..."
  • "Las Vegas Housing Prices Reached the Highest Level in the Last 11 Years" - DigitalJournel.com"Real estate experts have marked a significant change in the economy and housing prices in Las Vegas during the last couple of months. 2018 has brought many changes to the Las Vegas real estate market, with prices rising rapidly and the number of available properties dropping just as quickly. However, it is certain that the city of Las Vegas is booming once again after the massive market crash in 2008. According to Nevada Current and the statistics from August 2018, the average price of a single-family home in the area of Southern Nevada equaled to $295,000. This shows how the prices have increased significantly since 2012 when the same properties were available for $118,000. However, even today’s average is still below the all-time high, which was $315,000, back in June 2006."
  • "Home of the Week: Sneak peek of Montford Holiday Tour of Homes" - Citizen-Times.com"When Chicago weather became too much for Pat and Ron Hart, they began a down South search that landed them in Asheville. A retired registered nurse, Pat moved to the area three years ago while Ron, a real estate agent, followed her six months later after retiring and selling their home in Illinois. 'We decided to move south due to a combination of Southern climate, the mountains, the four seasons and because we would be off the hurricane beaten path,” Ron said. “We just felt the dual wrath of hurricanes Michael and Florence.' Instead of purchasing a home right away, the couple took the safe route and rented until they gained their bearings..."
  • "NYC Real Estate Brokers & Landlords Are Salivating Over Amazon Invasion" - Gothamist.com"With New York City still deep in the midst of an affordability crisis—a Furman Center report released earlier this year showed that the city's population continues to outpace housing supply, and median rents have increased by around $300/month since 2000, while renters' salaries have only increased by $145—Amazon is promising to bring 25,000 to 40,000 jobs to Queens with an average salary of $150,000..."

2018 follow-up TXT scripts - Get 'em while they're hot!!

New, free online follow-up text message scripts and templates for agents working the field in 2018. Are you looking for something to say? Then here's your source (at least one of them). =)

 

 

FIRST OFF: TXT messaging is a sensitive marketing channel to leverage. Do not spam folks - especially people you don't know (that's just creepy). However, there is a role for TXT messaging people that you've had light communication with. These leads may be somewhere between "neighbor you've recently met" and "friend of a friend asking their network for tips on the market."

 

That said, here are some great text message followup templates for you to use in your 2018 campaigns. You'll see a lot of reference to a market report, something we can't recommend highly enough. Generate yours at offrs.com if you don't yet know where to customize a home-welcome kit or CMA / marketing report. Be sure to share!

 

"Just wanted to follow up on the area report we talked about. There's a lot to the market right now, but I can help."

 

"Hey there... just following up on the neighborhood report. What’d you think? Are you free tomorrow to discuss?"

 

"So what did you think of the neighborhood report? A lot of interesting stuff in there, right? Are you available tomorrow to talk in person?"

 

"Now that you've had a chance to review it, what did you think of the report?"

 

"Have you had a chance to review the report we talked about? Obviously, there's a lot of factors to navigating the market. Let’s talk."

 

"Hey, have you had a chance to review the market report I sent you? If not, no worries. We can go over it in person if you're free tomorrow."

 

"The neighborhood report I sent you has a lot of details in it. Do you want to get together and discuss what it means for your home value?"

 

"Hey there. I'd like to get together and discuss the area report I gave you (what it means for your home's market value) etc. Wanna grab coffee?"

 

"Wanted to follow up on the neighborhood report I sent out. You free tomorrow to go over it together?"

 

"Hope you're doing great today! What did you think of the neighborhood report...? You available today to discuss?"

 

"Hope the report was helpful! If you're free next week, let's meet up and go into more detail about the market. Wed work for you?"
