What's In and What's Out in Real Estate?

Napoleon wrote, "The laws that govern circumstances are abolished by new circumstances."  New circumstances certainly arrived in abundance to the real estate sector during the past few years.  The change in both the market and the way business is conducted arrived at a dizzying pace, and it will continue. 

If you're waiting for the good old days, they are gone.  It's time to embrace the new and kiss the old way of doing business goodbye.

 As we approach mid-year 2011:

Going green is in; operating in the red is out.  Belt tightening shows off your waistline and turns you into a lean, mean high-producing force to be reckoned with.

Going paperless is in; printing needlessly is out.  I sent an inefficient printer out to pasture last week.  My goal is to reduce my urge to print and master the art of online filing.

Online presence is in; print ads play a diminishing marketing role.  Instead of a fancy personal brochure I now hand out simple "Google Me" invitations at open houses.

Fabulous property photos are in; a single out of focus pic is out.  Quality photos tell a story about the property and an agent's marketing skills.

Returning calls is in; a lengthy message stating what days you will return calls is out.  Good manners never go out of style.

DocuSign is in; chasing after signatures is out.  Not every client is ready to embrace electronic signatures and I always honor my clients' wishes, but it saves time and simplifies the laborious task of shuffling documents to and fro.

And the list goes on...
