20-hr CPE: Stage. Shoot. Sell! Visual Techniques for Effective Real Estate Marketing

First impression is the key to selling a property.

Therefore, what are the three things you must do in order to create a good and lasting impression?

First, hire a home stager to do the design and styling of your property space.
Second, hire a professional photographer to take pictures of your property.
Third, price your home competitively.

What if you can do step 1 and 2 without spending extra on professional help, and still manage to put VALUE on your property?

If you are the agent or broker, or an appraiser handling working on a property, how do you enhance your subject/listing so that it will give a positive first impression to probably clients?

We've got the perfect module for you!

UPDATED: PRBRES Approves Salespersons' Accreditation

Good news for real estate salespersons! 

The Professional Regulatory Board of Real Estate Service (PRBRES) has FINALLY begun releasing names of salespersons approved for accreditation!

The following resolutions were released via the PRC website:
  • Resolution 1-2012 signed on January 13, 2012, approving 82 salespersons
  • Resolution 5-2013 signed on February 12, 2013, approving 57 salespersons
  • Resolution 6-2013 signed on February 12, 2013, approving 136 salespersons
  • Resolution 11-2013 signed on February 28, 2013, approving 170 salespersons
  • Resolution 12-2013 signed on March 15, 2013, approving 173 salespersons
  • Resolution 13-2013 signed on March 15, 2013, approving 201 salespersons
  • Resolution 17-2013 signed on April 3, 2013, approving 106 salespersons
  • Resolution 20-2013 signed on May 7, 2013 approving 112 salespersons
That's a total of 1,037 salespersons to date!
This is definitely a GOOD NEWS especially to those who applied and successfully beat the December 31, 2011 deadline. It has been almost two years of waiting, you can imagine how frustrated and almost hopeless our fellow real estate practitioners because it seemed to them like nothing would happen in their applications anymore. Given that more and more developers are taking RESA Law seriously, not having a license from PRC could mean losing career opportunities and possible earnings.

What is even nicer is that, apart from the names of the approved salespersons, their corresponding real estate brokers (with license numbers) are also reflected on the list! This is a sign of integrity from the Board, making sure that the accredited salespersons are represented by licensed and legitimate real estate brokers. 

With this recent development, everyone from the real estate industry can only hope that the Board will continuously release further resolutions for the hundreds or thousands more that applied since 2011. Likewise, we expect that the turn of events will contribute into more enthusiastic real estate agents.

That said, we encourage all real estate salespersons (and brokers who are handling agents) to attend our upcoming CPE seminars! Or, if you are from a realty firm, developer, or any marketing group, we can provide an EXCLUSIVE 12-hour CPE run for you!

20-hr CPE: Basic Real Estate Photography this JUNE!

They say pictures are worth a thousand words. For real estate, they are worth much,much more.

A study by the National Association of Realtors said that 80% of real estate sales and transactions began online, and that 83% of the buyers cited photographs as the top useful tool in their search and eventually, decision-making.

Good photos tell you that a property has VALUE, and highlighting value rather than the price to pay makes buying more convincing rather than traumatizing.

What are the benefits of taking good real estate photographs? According to Vivian Toy of New York Times:
  1.  The first and sometimes the only impression a buyer gets of a home is online photos.
  2. Good photos generate initial interest in buyers.
  3. When you look at the difference between professional photos and the ones taken by the brokers, it's not hard to see that you get what you pay for.
While most real estate companies hire professional photographers to do the job, any ordinary person can actually produce well-executed marketing photo, at an extremely lower cost! All you need is your point-and-shoot camera!
