Here we go; let’s take a sweep of this week! First up…a Top 10 done for us – as we recap what Matthew Gardner shared with us at kickoff on Tuesday. Top 10 Things to Look Out for in 2021 – right here. Note: excellent social media opportunities to keep this conversation going with your “social” sphere on the HUB.
When will open houses come back? I don’t know. My money is on Phase 3 for each county. In the immediate, sharing a reminder of our Step Inside campaign where we continue to showcase new Seattle inventory with immersive media of any kind. It’s been awhile since I feature this – bringing it back top of mind to share with clients! Step Inside this weekend, right here.
Speaking of inventory, preaching to the choir – it is light. Last checked, 18 days of inventory in King and less in Pierce & Snohomish. With that, a reminder to check out WRE Form 41 – Buyer Optional Clauses Addendum. A great spot/addenda to recap more tools that you may not know you have at your fingertips with your competitive Buyers. Not sure where this lives? NWMLS > Xpress Forms > Additional Forms (tab) > Companies P-Z (tab) > Windermere > WRE Form 41.
…and on the Listing side of things this week – I was reminded of a fantastic question to be sure to engage your Sellers with as you approach strategy with this market: How would you feel if you received an offer on Day 1? This question helps begin to set a path in strategy for offer review. The answer says & shows you a lot!
Are you looking for signs of a light at the end of the tunnel? I am. Piper & I went and chased the sunset last night and we found this…
I don’t know how long this tunnel is, yet I do see some light beginning to appear. Go Slow, Do No Harm – and I have 3 more words for you – vaccines, vaccines, vaccines – let’s go Washington!
