After REBarcamp-Seattle...

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Altos Research

Just a couple of quick follow-ups to this week's REBarcamp-Seattle.  Thank you to Zillow for putting together the event.  With the number of attendees well over 300, there was lots of enthusiasm and sharing to go around.

If you missed it, I hosted two sessions:

  1. "How to REALLY Grab 'em" - We discussed specific strategies for internet and web marketing, reviewing agent and broker websites from across the country that have done a particularly nice job of successfully marketing on the web. 
  2. "Beat the Headlines. Be the Local Market Expert." - This session was all about how to reach your buyers and sellers with local market stats to educate and inform.  Lots of times we hear the headlines to the real estate story, but those headlines don't apply your client.  Additionally, there are numerous market stats that you can use - it's more than just price to communicate effectively.  Some examples include looking at inventory trends, days-on-market by price zone, the price of new listings coming into the market, and more.

If you'd like to see the slides for our presentations, you can check them out here.  This link will redirect you to a custom page on AltosResearch.com to access and download the presentation:

If you're not in the Seattle area, be sure to find a REBarcamp close to you.  Yes, they are worth taking a day from your business even if you have to drive a couple of hours!  We've been huge supporters of the movement, attending as many as possible.  It's a great concept that the real estate industry has needed.

And finally, if you're not familiar with us here at Altos Research, well, you should be!  We help agents answer that question you get every day - "How's the market?"  Our subscriptions and solutions for real estate agents are designed to help you keep your prospects, leads, and clients up-to-date with the latest market data with:

  • Real-time, automated data on your website
  • Automatic lead generation and lead capture tools for your website
  • Personally-branded market reports for your meetings and drip marketing
We're also bloggers - discussing the real estate market on our company blog, appropriately titled - "How's the market?"

(Yes, it's cool stuff!)

RE Bar Camp is a great experience.  Those who haven't been to one should try it!

Hi Tara - Thanks for the note - so glad I was able to provide some useful info.  Lots of pressure with a roomful of people - whew!  I'll have Ricky (our product expert) drop you a line.  He can send you a local market report for your area to check out and show you how our whole subscription package works.  Happy selling!

Hi Maureen - Thanks for the note.  We weren't able to make it to Columbus for the REBarcamp there but I was "watching" on Twitter and heard nothing but positive comments about the event.

(BTW - I used to live in Columbus - Clintonville - on Northridge Ave just a quick walk to the Park of Roses! Great town and wonderful people.)
