There’s no escaping the headlines.
The real estate market in Metro Vancouver and its surrounding areas has become one of the hottest in North America.
Most homes that hit the market don’t last more than three weeks, according to the Greater Vancouver Real Estate Board’s statistics for October 2017.
Of course, those stats slightly differ depending on the type of home as shown in the graphic below.
Single detached homes aren’t necessarily flying off the proverbial shelves.
Though, the bottom line here is that homes, no matter which type, are still in high demand as the once deep well of inventory slowly dries.
Is it really any wonder how local agents are able to stay at the top of their game, fetching their clients a hot, new listing while relying on traditional means of receiving their real estate updates?
Has this happened to you?
Many Metro Vancouver & Surrounding Area agents reading this rely on untimely email notifications to notify them of current opportunities.
This is what we consider as your real estate not working for you in real time.
While most agents have flocked to closed social media groups and group texting apps to get more “real time” information on the latest upcoming open houses, a new listing, a soon-to-be listing, or a referral opportunity, these channels have shown their downfalls.
Closed groups are just that - closed. Not just any REALTOR® can be welcomed into these groups. Group administrators first need to determine an agent’s value to the group. Inclusion becomes subjective.
Group texting apps pose as an alternative to closed social groups. Though, its downside is communication gets lost through endless chains of simultaneous narratives.
In a hot market where homes are snatched up before you can even think twice about scanning through ions of texts between other agents or waiting on your approval for a closed real estate group, opportunities are lost.
Metro Vancouver & Surrounding Area agents need to know when things are happening in real time.
RESAAS’s new Metro Vancouver & Surrounding Area group gives local agents all they need… in real time!
Forget about administrators, exclusions or endless narratives.
If you’re a REALTOR® in the Metro Vancouver & Surrounding Area, then you’re in!
With access to the group, local agents receive a bevy of local listings, get a leg up on upcoming open houses, and can be in the know of the latest referral and buyer need opportunities.
Now that’s your real estate working in real time!
Unlike closed social groups, getting into the group is easy - just log in to your RESAAS Basic or Premium account, head over to the left navigation screen and select “Metro Vancouver”.
Local agents will still have access to the Global Activity group where you can scan through global industry news as well as build connections in other hot markets.
