Active vs Reactive Marketing. Which is Your Realtor Using?

What's the difference between reactive and active marketing? There's a big difference. 

Reactive marketing is when you sit back and you wait for people to reach out to you. You wait for people to see your sign, see something on a website, and they will call you because of their reacting to something you're putting out there. 
Active marketing, which is what I do is where I'm actually going out trying to create activities to make people call me. Big differences, a big difference in philosophy and marketing the whole nine yards. 

I believe that if you want to be aggressive in this marketplace, you don't just put a sign in the ground and you wait for reactive people to call you about that sign. You put a sign out in the ground and you go out you look for buyers to call you and you call them. That is the difference between reactive and active marketing. 

And if you're curious as to what your last realtor did, give me a call. I'd love to talk you through th ...

4 Tips for Making Your Best Offer on a Home

Are you planning to buy a home this spring? Though things are more balanced than they were at the height of the pandemic, it’s still a sellers’ market. So, when you find the home you want to buy, remember these four tips to make your best offer.
1. Lean on a Real Estate Professional
Rely on an agent who can support your goals. As Bankrate notes:
“. . . select the best real estate agent for your needs. They will be a critical part of your home buying process.”
Agents are local market experts. They know what’s worked for other buyers in your area and what sellers may be looking for in an offer. It may seem simple, but catering to what a seller needs can help your offer stand out.
2. Know Your Budget
Understanding your budget is especially important right now. As Sandy Higgins, Senior Wealth Advisor at Capstone Financial Advisors, puts it:
“Understand your current budget … what are your expenses, how’s your spending, would you ne ...

Wisconsin Real Estate Market Report Up North WI

It's that time of the month, I love market report time. We're dipping up into March where I've had a good chance to go back and see what happened in February.

So again, 190 new listings in the month of February, which is down about 26% and year to date, it's about 28% that were down. We looked at closed units that is down about the same 26% and year to date about 28% down. Again, it makes sense new listings are down close sales are down. Average listing price continues to go up. It was up about 14.59% for the month of February, which was about $260,000 as we average listing price. The average selling price is about $231,000 which is about 6%. So your average selling price as you can see is starting to fall a little bit behind that average listing price which shows us that there's obviously a little bit of negotiation room in there for buyers. ...
