I had an hour or two available last Sunday afternoon, so I decided to visit a few open houses in a couple of my ZIP code specialty areas (areas where I already have listings currently on the market). My time spent doing this was a win-win-win. Here’s why:
1.) As a REALTOR, gaining local market insight ALWAYS results in better experience for my clients (both buyers and sellers). Don’t you want someone working with you who knows the local market inside and out AND has seen the local inventory in-person?
2.) I met some great Agents from other Brokerages and we shared tips and info with each other. At the end of the day, all of us professionals should have the same goal: successfully help our clients navigate the local market with the least amount of stress possible (and help them keep as much money in their pocket as we can).
3.) I saw some amazing homes which actually look better in-person than online (by the way, it’s sometimes the other way around in the day-to-day of our biz). 🙂 See the slideshow (above) of the 3 homes I visited in N. Fort Worth (two in 76244 and one in 76177). Sizes ranged from about 1,600 sq feet at $149K all the way up to 3,200 sq feet at $175K (TONS of space for the family at just $54 per sq feet – WOW)!
Connecting clients with their next home or helping them sell their current one is so satisfying – I love my job! I’m looking forward to being of help to you or to someone that you know. Have an awesome week!
