We Can All Learn Something New. What Did You Learn Today?

This is my favorite post of the day. One because I think what you learn is you can take your Ipad anywhere and use it as a portable radio to learn anywhere and anytime from AR Webinars. Second because you learn to earn. What a great NEW letter idea from the Sellers  to the Neighbors about the Open House.

We Can All Learn Something New

What Did You Learn Today?


There was a webinar today given by Bob Stewart. Not to worry if you missed it because it is recorded right here  How to Host a Successful Open House According to Real Estate Professionals

This was an excellent session that I listened to in between appointments  in the car.  (Thank goodness for the iPad.)

There were some great ideas and suggestions. This format makes learning easy and fun.

Do yourself a favor and listen, really listen to this session. I will be surprised if you don't come away with a good idea or two.


As a seasoned agent, one of the best things today was this suggestion:

Have the sellers invite the neighbors to the open house. You read that right. The invitation comes from the seller to their neighbors.



When speaking with my sellers tonight, I shared this suggestion.   They were not comfortable... thinking it would "annoy" their long term neighbors. 

That was not the intention and suggested the verbage and  sent them a sample letter to email out to the members of the  neighborhood association.

It read....


‘We have lived on  this street for the past  25  years and have loved our home and this very special neighborhood. We will be moving in a few months and our lovely home is for sale. We would like to invite you to stop by  Sunday 1:30 to 3:30.  Please feel free to pass this along to others  you may want to have as new neighbors and members of the community.  We are looking for someone who would appreciate this home as much as we have.''



 Within minutes, the response from my seller. "Thanks, I like it and will follow up tomorrow"

Cheryl, I knew you would like this "learning on the go" post. Just use the iPad like a porable redio and you can learn anywhere. Thanks for the reblog.
