Hi TIGAR Family,
SPRING is COMING! The month of March is a time when the combination of warmer weather, flowers blossoming, grass turning greener, and fresh beginnings (day light savings) are on the horizon. People begin to think about spring and associate it with starting something new. Whether they are looking for a new job, spring cleaning, moving homes, spring training, or starting to make a change.
As we spring into buying season, start speaking to your clients on how you, as a trusted advisor, can help provide advice on topics of interest. I’ve added some ideas for you below.
In order to help answer your clients’ questions about home value and real estate valuation related questions, consider joining NAR’s “Ask an Appraiser” zoom panel workshop on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 and ask away! Click here to register. This is a panel of seasoned appraisers with experience across residential and commercial areas. They will be there to answer your questions and help you understand the process of getting an appraisal and give you other valuable residential and commercial information.
Below are social media video and post ideas for the month of March:
– Daylight Savings Time – Post a video of yourself reminding people of Daylight Savings.
– International Women’s Month – leave voice messages via messenger to all women on your Facebook appreciating them.
– Spring Sports Safety Tips – Find articles and share safety tips on preventing injuries.
– Spring Cleaning Hacks – Post a video with the topic “Thinking About Selling?” and provide 5 spring cleaning hacks that can help everyone.
One last thing, thanks to the TIGAR Housing Affordability Committee, they have secured a grant for 2021 from the California Association of REALTORS® Housing Affordability Fund! This year we will have a total of $25,000 to put towards reimbursing your first-time buyers for the cost of their home inspection, up to $400 per applicant. Beginning March 1, 2021, this month, reimbursement grants are available on a first come, first serve basis until we run out of funds. To apply for the grant, click here .
Wishing you a wonderful and prosperous spring,
Mayra Marrufo, eXp Realty, Your Trusted REALTOR® and friend.
