My close friend and colleague, Joe Niego is, in my opinion, America's best listing agent. In my own career, I would shadow Joe to see how he created listings. Well we’ve been the best of friends ever since those early days and collaborated on many projects. And Joe’s latest product is “Instant Inventory” – a brand new program to address real estate's biggest problem – shortage of inventory.
Joe has built this program using plenty of personal experience. He has sold over 2000 homes on the south side of Chicago. At the peak of his career, he averaged over 40 CMA calls a month. These were not new, commercial clients or investors; they were folks looking for the opportunity to move. And it all happened as a result of a well thought-through strategy.
So here we are today in a new era of real estate. Values came down 35%, there was a 3m shortfall in homes, short sales and foreclosures were everywhere. And today things are very different. As many of you know, there’s an inventory shortage across the nation - and one beginning to rear its head in Canada.
Many of you have weathered the recession, fought to keep your home, dipped into their savings and persevered. Now that you’re working with a handful of buyers – it’s no time to get beat out by investors. Reality is, there's nothing greater than that feeling of working with an excited and loyal buyer. But there’s nothing worse than having no homes for them to buy. We want to shift the paradigm from waiting for sales to happen to getting out there and finding them. The principle is to create your own inventory. And Joe Niego is going to show you how. Check out www.joeniego.com for more details.
It's a good life!
