Are you interested in building a recession proof real estate business? Who isn’t right!
Even though the economy is in a recession, the reality is that the real estate market can join the economy at any time and head into a recession.
The good news is that Realtors® everywhere can build a recession proof real estate business by following these tips.
Tip #1 – Enhance Your Digital Marketing
Digital marketing is essential in today’s world because it’s how buyers and sellers find real estate agents.
If you currently have an online presence, but it’s just your brokers website, you should invest in your own real estate website then commit to blogging and promoting your ‘brand’ online.
As your digital marketing efforts grow, your goal should be to grow a real estate list but that doesn’t mean you should ignore your past clients.
You should make a commitment to follow up with your previous clients at least every 90 days so that your name is always on the top of their mind.
This helps with generating referrals because a previous client may want to refer you to their friend family member that’s thinking of buying or selling a home.
Tip #2 – Diversify Your Real Estate Activities
With 2021 around the corner, some Realtors® are thinking that it’s going to be a year that will affect real estate.
Instead of getting caught in the recession, focus on diversifying your real estate activities now by focusing on things like property tax appeals, create a renter-to-homeowner program, focus on REO’s and consider more options for generating leads including:
- Hosting a client appreciate event
- Sending thank you gifts to your clients offices
- Invest in passive marketing
- Create an eBook
