I don't know about you, but I always get energized this time of year. The holidays are behind me, my year-end planning is done, and it's time to hit the ground running in 2017. If you're like me, you've probably identified some things you can start doing TODAY that will help you achieve your 2017 goals.
I've identified three things I believe can have a huge impact for your real estate business in the new year.
You have heard me say this before, but real estate has become a global business. Global is the new local. Consider that over $100 billion was spent on real estate in the U.S. by foreign buyers, according to the NAR 2016 Profile of International Activity in U.S. Residential Real Estate survey. Furthermore, Americans are retiring abroad in record numbers. There is similar real estate migration happening all over the world, and multicultural buyers are prevalent just about everywhere in our country.
All this points to the need to have a strategy and sales platform that allows you to connect to global agents and their buyers. If you are able to plug into the global network of agents, you will have a distinct advantage over your competitors that have not embraced the concept of a global, connected, real estate industry.
