I have always thought that selling a home is a bit like fishing. You have all your fishing equipment that is designed to make short work of those fish. You stop on the way to your favorite fishing hole and buy a container of big fat worms, then set up and drop a line. Here is where some fishing people differ. Some will drop that line in the water and then fall asleep, waiting for that tug on the line to wake them. Others will cast their line out into the perfect spot, and then jiggle the line a bit to catch the fish’s attention. They will reposition their hook into better areas as they go along. This is what I call active fishing.
This holds true with home selling as well. Individual agents come to the party with various lures in their tackle box. Some have that same tired looking lure that they have been using for years. It has been used so much that the shine is gone and the fish basically just ignore it. Others have the newest lure on the market. They picked it up yesterday and haven’t even really figured out how to use it yet. They toss it in the water just to see what happens. Tomorrow, they will get the next new one and try it out.
Then there is the professional fisherman. They have the lures that they know work. They are up to date on all the new ones, but only use the ones they have learned to use well. They know just how to cast the lure right into the correct areas of the pond and stay awake to work the line. As soon as they know a fish is interested, they work the line to bring that fish home.
If you are looking to sell your home, you need an agent that understands how to snag a buyer. Give me a call. I think you will fall for me hook, line, and sinker.
Den Boer Homes just sent out the second in a series of monthly mailers. Like the first one (Simpler Times) and all the rest to come, we featured the same photographer. These mail pieces are supposed to offer the recipients a cute picture that they might wish to hang on to, put up on their refrigerator, and enjoy. It will also hopefully remind them to call den Boer Homes when they need a Real Estate agent! Read the rest of this entry »
I was brainstorming with my marketing company the other day and I said I wanted to do a mailer with great eye-catching pictures and cute sayings that would get the attention of people in my farm area. We talked awhile, and the above mailer sprang to life. It became a softer message, one that would be a bit more soothing to look at, perhaps even elicit a chuckle or two from my audience. With as stressful as life has become these days, I felt that we needed to step back to a simpler time and place. Read the rest of this entry »

Spring has sprung! Along with all the pollen is the air, so are hopes and dreams. People are emerging from their Winter lifestyles and coming out into the sun to look for a new home and, there aren’t that many to be found! What? We are in a very low inventory state when it comes to homes available for sale. The homes that are on the market and priced well are receiving multiple offers in as few as hours after the listing becomes available! I remember this happened last year this time as well. As soon as the Spring feeding frenzy was over, things balanced out a bit.
If you are in the market to sell a home, now is definitely a good time to do it. Looking to buy? Be prepared to make an offer as soon as you see a home you like. If you have to sleep on it, you may never sleep in it!
For anyone who knows me, they will tell you that I don’t particularly like change. I like to stay the course. It’s part of my marketing strategery! However, sometimes change is necessary for improvement.
den Boer Homes has left Keller Williams and joined up with Atlanta Communities. Why? Well, there is much less Rah Rah and much more professional surroundings, in my opinion. We tend to gravitate to where we feel most at home, and Atlanta Communities is it. This brokerage does not look to hire on new agents. They are comprised mostly of dedicated and seasoned Real Estate professionals. I like that.
So, while change can be difficult, this one was easy. I learned years ago when playing tennis to pl;ay people much better than myself. In this way I was challenged to get better. Surrounding myself with a high caliber of agents will keep me focused in providing the very best service to my clients possible. Thanks to Atlanta Communities for allowing me to share in this professional atmosphere.
Looking to buy or sell a home? Call me to set up a consultation. The market is out of balance at the moment, perhaps to your benefit!
