[Podcast] Online Safety: What You Should Never Post on Social Media
Most real estate professionals have heard the advice, "Be authentic!" in regards to posting on social media. And it's true, being your warm, inviting self will draw in far more followers than staid business posts ever could. But is it possible to be too authentic? Where should real estate pros draw the line when talking about their family and personal life, or even their clients and listings — especially in an age of online predators, scammers, and data collectors? In this episode of the Drive with NAR: Safety Series, host Tracey Hawkins talks with two real estate social media stars about the online boundaries they draw to protect their own and their clients' privacy.

First-ever Rental Expert Series Report Looks at the 2023 Rental Market
As part of the new Rental Expert Series, Rental Beast has created the 2023 Market Report, which includes 2024 market predictions, sentiments from property owners, and 2023 rental data. The program is designed to provide real estate professionals with valuable insights, data, educational content, and more to help them succeed in rentals. Report Summary In 2024, home prices are expected to remain flat or slightly decrease, with projections showing a downtick of less than 2%. Home sales are anticipated to slightly increase, supported by new construction, while existing home supply remains sluggish. Mortgage rates are predicted to range from 6% to 7%, and housing affordability challenges are likely to persist. Rents are expected to rise slightly, with some variations in projections, driven by high demand for rentals. The multifamily sector is a key focus, with an influx of new inventory potentially leading to increased concessions to boost occupancy. In the last quarter of 2023, the sentiment among property owners regarding median rent indicates a cautious or stable outlook, with 75% expecting rents to remain the same through June 2024. Despite a competitive housing market, 26% of property managers report a decrease in rental applications. Rental data for 2023 in 12 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) indicates a general downward trend in median rents for various property types throughout the year. Three-bedroom homes are still, on average, the priciest rental type, ending Q4 with a median price of $2,199. However, if you're splitting the rent with roommates, it's more affordable than a one-bedroom, which came in at $1,735 in the final quarter of 2023. Residential Rental Statistics This snapshot of the 2023 residential rental market illustrates key indicators like average rent prices, days on market, and percentage change of available listings to provide insights into current trends and market dynamics: Median Rent and Concessions Quarterly median and yearly average rent changes compared with percentage of listings with concessions: In 2023, rental data shows consistent trends for rental listings with concessions. Colorado Springs led with the highest percentages throughout the year, reaching 48% in Q2. Atlanta also maintained relatively high levels, while Boston consistently recorded lower percentages. Overall, the national average in MSAs analyzed for rental listings with concessions in 2023 stood at 18%.

10 Proven Ways to Optimize Your Real Estate Website for Lead Generation
How Understanding the Lead Lifecycle Can Boost Your Conversion Rate
As we navigate market changes, it's more evident than ever that lead generation, nurturing, and management is not a one-size-fits-all process. Put simply, you can no longer just try to generate leads and expect to stay productive in this market. Instead, you need to be strategic and look at the lead lifecycle holistically. This will help you understand where to drop in your expertise regularly and guide your leads along the path to becoming closed clients. How the Lead Lifecycle Shapes Your Client Outreach and Success The lead lifecycle, also known as the lead funnel, is the journey a lead takes from the very first time they see your name or business, all the way to their seat at the closing table. They don't get from A to Z after they submit the form or give you a call; instead, there are thoughtful points of interaction that take place at each stage to nudge them along and get them to close. Let's look at a real-life example: you land a lead and you're ready to get in touch. You give them a ring and learn they're not going to be market-ready for another 18 months. Therefore, you shouldn't be calling them again any time soon. They're 18 months out from purchase — give them breathing room, but be sure to still supply them with consistent, impactful reminders you're there to help and ready to jump into action when they're ready for you. Then, as that 18-month mark approaches, you can shift your focus to ramping up contact. This will also help bridge the gap to meeting your lead where they are, even a year and a half after your initial conversation. How to Meet Leads Where They Are, Here and Now Like we said, no lead generation and management strategy fits into a neat, cookie-cutter outline. You have to tailor your approach to your leads based on their specific needs, such as their timeline to buy or sell, life events shaping their need for a real estate pro, and other unique, individual scenarios driving their decision-making. So how can you actually make sure you're staying top of mind with your leads, no matter where they are on their journey? Here are a few key ways to seamlessly stay in touch. Set Up a Nurture Campaign One of the best tactics to stay on top of your client database is with nurture campaigns. Typically set up in your CRM platform, nurture campaigns will send emails (and sometimes text messages) to your leads and clients at specific intervals of times, or when they take an action — like submitting a lead or downloading something from your website. Because the CRM automatically sends off the email for you, you don't need to hover over your contact list and try to remember what communications to send to who and when. This frees up your time to work one-on-one with your clients and focus on other areas of your business, like generating more leads. With customized, timely emails sent to leads and clients at impactful times, you can see high rates of engagement along the lead lifecycle. Use Calendar-Blocking Regularly With all that freed up time from your nurture campaign efforts, you can also use dedicated time slots on your calendar for more manual, yet meaningful, interactions with your leads. Block out time on your calendar each week to follow up with leads via phone or meeting. You can categorize them by where they are in their journey, or even prioritize the hot, ready-to-transact leads. By getting direct time with your leads, you can demonstrate your level of attention, care, and dedication to understanding their stage in the lead lifecycle — and how you'll get them to the close. Use a Post Close Companion for Your Converted Clients As you nudge your leads and support them through their lifecycle, they'll make it to the closing table. But you also can't just forget about a client once they've closed the deal and final documents are signed, sealed, and delivered. Even if the transaction is complete, you're still sitting on untapped potential: 82% of all real estate deals come from repeat and referral business. Undoubtedly, it's critical to focus on your closed clients. You truly never know when they'll need your expertise again, and you want to stay top-of-mind for them to send any friends, family members, or colleagues your way for their real estate needs. To do this seamlessly, kvCORE has Post Close Companion, an easy-to-use tool to manage your post-close relationships. It allows you to capture reviews, nurture relationships, and leverage your past clients to build a robust referral pipeline. To view the original article, visit the Inside Real Estate blog.

3 Must-Read Tips for Building a Digital Brand Identity as an Agent
Creating a digital brand identity as a real estate agent has never been a more important component of the business. Both buyers and sellers spend ample time researching potential agents online long before they make any decisions about who will represent them in the home transaction, typically between six months to a year before they actually hire someone. At the same time, it's never been more difficult to craft a distinct brand as an agent, one that prospective buyers and sellers can trust and understand. There are no doubt a lot of agents competing with you in your market, and standing out from the crowd can be a challenge for even the best agents. In a webinar from October 31, 2023, Marilyn Wilson, President of RE Technology, sat down with John Adams, President of Adams, Cameron & Co., and Peter Newton, President of Big Rock Consulting Group, to talk about actionable ways agents can craft their unique brand identity. Watch the video to get the full experience; meanwhile, here are some between-the-lines takeaways from their presentation. 1. Digital reach matters more than physical distance Buying physical advertising on billboards, park benches, or newspapers has been a tried-and-true tactic that many agents have used to establish and spread their brand identity. However, these days, people who buy a new house are moving farther and farther away from their current residence: up to 50 miles, compared to up to 15 miles in previous years. If the billboard ads are working for you, that's great, but remember that there could be potential clients who are miles away from the places you would most likely post a physical ad. Building a digital brand identity will help you to both cement trust locally and generate leads from outside your immediate area. 2. Working with a high-profile brokerage can give you a head start Both buyers and sellers want to work with agents who have an established brand. For newer agents who don't have as much experience, or even for seasoned agents who appreciate the additional leverage, working with a brokerage that aligns with your brand identity and that has done its own work to market and advertise itself can help provide a boost to your own reach. 3. Be ubiquitous and consistent It takes a certain number of impressions before an individual member of your audience will be able to remember who you are and what you do. That's not an indication that your brand needs improvement; rather, it's proof of how inundated everybody is with information all day, every day, and how consistent and persistent messaging can help cut through the noise to reach your target audience. With that in mind, it's smart to diversify your marketing efforts just like you would an investment portfolio. Create content that consistently showcases you as a real estate expert in your niche for different channels. If you make a neighborhood guide video for your website, ask yourself how you can slice it up and reuse it not just on Facebook, but also YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, and other social media platforms that support video sharing. To learn more about how to establish a niche for yourself and the five steps of building a brand, watch the full presentation.

Mastering Real Estate Marketing in 2023: Back to the Basics
When home sales decline in a market, it may feel natural to pull back on spending to conserve your resources. But is that really the right approach? Instead, top agents take the opposite tack: they get even more aggressive on promotion because they know their competitors are cutting back. This leaves an opportunity for top agents to expand their presence. Then, when the housing market turns favorable again, they can come out stronger than ever. Fortunately, you don't have to spend a ton on promotions to be successful. In a recent webinar, we learned how to act strategically to market yourself to sellers and give your listings a virtual advantage.
