In the real estate sector a new term is being used, this is "real estate networking".
Do you know what it is, what it's for and the benefits it can bring to your business? We'll tell you!
Networking is a very useful tool for professional development.
It is a mecca of new opportunities for your real estate business.
It is also perfect for establishing good working relationships that can help you grow as a company and as an individual.
But what is real estate networking?
Networking is a strategy that consists of creating a network of professional contacts who have the same interests or the same profession.
In the real estate world, this network of professional contacts is a concept that will help you to have relationships in different areas.
Promoting in this way the properties that you have at your disposal to buy, sell or rent.
In case you are an independent real estate consultant, this strategy known as real estate networking allows you to find new clients, meet experts and colleagues related to real estate.
So you can explore new markets and meet new companies to help you provide a better quality service to your clients.
In a business, such as real estate, contacts are essential to keep you on your feet.
It is necessary to know professionals in the area and make them know you.
Building this real estate networking can definitely save and make your business skyrocket.
At this point, you may be wondering:
How did you build this real estate networking?
Networking aims to establish strong professional relationships in which both parties feel they benefit.
To achieve this, it takes time and dedication.
You must maintain constant communication with your contacts, give yourself time to build an excellent reputation.
Do all your work responsibly and professionally.
Take advantage of social networking sites, you can take advantage of forums on topics related to your profession where you can build relationships.
Attend events that are associated with the sector and seek to form relationships with people who can benefit you in real estate networking.
For any independent real estate agent it is essential to establish friendly relationships with others, i.e. clients, professionals in your field.
Even those who are not part of your profession but with whom you feel you can grow and benefit from their experience.
Don't ignore anyone. You never know where a good opportunity may come from.
This will help you to make your way in your business and broaden your vision.
Take advantage of the great opportunity to forge a solid real estate network.
When you attend an event, prepare a mini-speech that summarises who you are and what you offer as a professional in your field.
And as a last tip, we recommend you to have a card where you leave your social networks and contact numbers so that people remember you and can contact you if they want to.
Experience from your own experience how important and fundamental this network of contacts can be for your business.
At Sierra gest we understand the importance of real estate networking, that's why we offer the best service to all our clients who want to find the home of their dreams.
How many of us have been victims of some real estate scams.
Even though most of us always keep our eyes open, not all real estate agencies have the professionalism to do things correctly without affecting the interests of their clients.
For many, a sale is a sale, regardless of the real shortcomings that a property may have.
Have you ever seen those movies where the protagonist buys a dream house and upon arrival, the property is far from looking like in the pictures?
The truth is that these situations do happen and even though it is not ideal, it is quite common to fall into real estate scams.
Buying a property is always a very stressful situation for the client, most of them decide to start their search process on the internet, since it allows us to explore different portals and see different options.
However, the search process becomes more tedious when the buyer discovers that about 90% of the properties that are advertised are not as perfect as they appear in photographs.
There are certain phrases that you should definitely run away from as soon as you see them in portals, because they bring with them, unexpressed meanings that can be a real headache when it comes to buying your new home.
In this article we want to give you the most common phrases of real estate deceptions:
How many times have you read this phrase?
Generally speaking, it certainly works, as long as it is real, because as you will see, it is one of the most typical real estate scams.
But, when should you run away from it?
When you see that it is joined or complemented with very low prices, that is to say, if you know the value of the properties in a certain area and they are much higher than that property, do not doubt it, there is something wrong with the house.
This kind of offers that seem dreamed, do not exist and, without a doubt, it is one of the most used tricks to call the attention to a certain property.
It tends to occur especially in areas with greater recognition. It also applies to properties with advertisements such as: "first line" or "near the sea".
Another classic without a doubt is the typical "cozy apartment", "apartment with many possibilities", "property to create your dream home".
All these are synonyms of problems, old, damaged apartment in which you will have to invest time and money to make it look as you wish.
All these phrases are euphemisms for the same thing: small, old, poorly laid out apartment in which you will have to spend more money than you thought.
Another classic is the "Ready to live in" "to see it is to buy it".
This has only one meaning in red letters, RUN! And I mean it, in general within the real estate scams this means, that it not only needs a few touches of paint.
But it may be a property that already has renovations, which may have been done at least a decade ago and needs to be updated.
Another common lie, is the surface of the property, this number in general can be a real estate deception.
Always remember that the total area of a property is different from the living area of the property.
This is something that many real estate agencies tend to hide because in the end no client gets to measure the property before buying it.
So when you are going to buy a property, and pay for it, do not be afraid to ask your real estate agent for the two figures.
At Sierragest we want to offer you the greatest transparency possible and of course, don't be afraid to ask us everything you need to know about the properties you want to buy.
We have a team of highly trained professionals who will help you get the house of your dreams.
The wave of change in modern times has revolutionized several sectors, including real estate. Virtual tours are an example of this.
Technology covers more and more areas of our lives every day.
The Internet brought with it an extraordinary change to the world, and one not only at the communicational level, but in almost every aspect.
One of the first things we always think about when deciding to buy or rent a property is to see it before buying it.
Because we all prefer to make sure of every detail, after all, this will be the place we will call home.
But undoubtedly, despite its importance, seeing the house can often be quite cumbersome and where more time is wasted.
This is due to the fact that appointments must be scheduled, moving, touring the place and applying this to each of the properties in which we are interested, in order to have several options.
It is then when technology begins to do what it does best, make our lives easier. How? It is simple, with a virtual tour.
That's right, have you ever heard of virtual tours, haven't you? If you haven't heard about it, don't worry, we'll enlighten you.
What is a virtual tour?
Basically, a virtual tour is a kind of immersive experience that allows us to see a house or apartment from the inside, but that's not the best part, because as you will see, it also allows us to move around the virtual space as if we were actually in the place.
That way, you can even interact with the property (or at least that is the perception it gives) approaching certain spaces and seeing each of its details more closely.
Crazy, isn't it? Technology seems to be taking over almost every space, making our lives easier and virtual tours are undoubtedly a proof of that.
The recent pandemic caused by Covid19 showed us how fragile we can be in the face of nature and drastically changed the world as we knew it, however, it made us stronger in the face of adversity and helped us understand (once again) that crises create opportunities.
They make us creative, ingenious, turning every problem into an opportunity.
For months, millions of Spaniards (not to mention this global situation) were forced to confine ourselves, to isolate ourselves from each other for the good of all of us as a society.
Bringing life and the hustle and bustle we were used to to an almost complete halt, postponing those moving plans, those house visits and limiting not only our time, but also our contact with others.
That's when this technology played an incredible role in the face of adversity, virtual tours became not only a tool, but an escape of sorts.
Many of us took virtual tours of the Louvre museum and enjoyed this wonderful technology that the modern era offers us.
That little escape that is here to stay and, although virtual tours are not something so recent, the situation we live in has given it a lot of strength.
A technology that the real estate sector decided to make the most of, because it offers us great opportunities, you may be thinking right now, what opportunities? Let me explain.
Let's suppose you decide to move and you are in a different city from the one you are moving to, it is likely that if it is far away, going to see the properties you are interested in would be a real odyssey.
Imagine all the time you would save if you could explore your options just by doing virtual tours.
After the pandemic, virtual real estate has become an amazing source to explore and get to know properties remotely.
That is why in SierraGest we have gone hand in hand with technology, making your life much easier.
We have extensive experience and the best technology to help you choose your home.
