At gatherings with friends and family this holiday season, people will seek you out to help answer their questions about today’s real estate market. Your use of visuals at these moments is just as crucial as it is during a scheduled consultation. You must have the necessary charts, data and visuals with you at all times. Whether on an iPad, tablet or smart phone, having this information readily available will dramatically increase your ability to explain away some of the confusion in the market. This will increase your chances of scheduling an appointment for a more in depth conversation about the housing needs and desires of your friends and relatives.
