[Podcast] Decoding Real Estate: Deliver Clarity to Clients Amongst Shifting Market Concerns
What's everyone in real estate talking about these days? The shifting market and how it will affect inventory, sales and consumer confidence. This month's Decoding Real Estate is talking about it too, but we've got a much more positive spin than the doom and gloom media narrative. That's because RPR (Realtors Property Resource®) has recently introduced new charts and graphs that can help REALTORS® deliver local market stats to their clients and prospects. Hyperlocal data can ease fears and cut through the confusion. And there's no better expert on the subject than DRE's own host, Reggie Nicolay. Listen in as Genie Willett asks Reggie to explain what the new housing Market Trends charts and graphs contain, including definitions of the type of market areas are in, months supply of inventory, days on market, median prices, and much more. Reggie also offers up a slew of tips on how agents can use, share and promote these crucial stats, and he lists a handful of other impactful ways agents can promote their business (using free RPR tools and data!). Plus, a sneak preview of RPR's next big product release. Decoding Real Estate is hosted by Reggie Nicolay and Genie Willett. Subscribe/Follow Click here for a complete transcript of the episode.

6 Tips for Starting Your Real Estate Podcast
Podcasts have been around for quite a while. They are a fantastic tool when it comes to generating real estate leads, especially if you are able to capture those prospects in the research phase of their buying process. Here are six tips for starting your own real estate podcast: 1. Have a "Gimmick" Just like you should have a unique identifying reason why prospects should use you and not another real estate agent, you should have a reason that people should listen to your real estate podcast. This can be content unique to your area, your personality, a weekly giveaway, etc. Don't just sit there and talk, but have a plan. 2. Start It NOW Don't take too long planning—the only way you will gain any traction is by starting your podcast TODAY. Your first few episodes may be embarassing a year from now, but it's important that you just "do it." Just like waiting months to perfect a website before a launching it is a mistake, not having that online presence will cost you missed opportunities. As time goes on, your podcasts will improve and you will have better workflows to efficiently record new episodes. 3. Have Fun with It Don't worry about copying what has been done before. What works for other real estate agents might not work for you. Don't be afraid try experimenting with concepts you think would work. If they don't work, simply don't use them again in future podcast episodes. It's important that podcasting is fun for you, otherwise it won't be fun for others to listen to. 4. Be Consistent To create a real estate podcast that will generate perpetual residual leads is to have regular weekly episodes. This will train your audience to look forward to your next episode—or have them download all of your archived episodes to listen on their morning commute. 5. Invest in Good Sound Quality Just like purchasing a good quality camera for YouTube videos, the same goes for making an intelligent purchase towards your audio quality. You can certainly record your podcast on your phone, but listeners can tell the difference. This also goes for recording in a properly soundproofed room versus an open room that emphasizes the echoes of your voice. 6. Understand It Takes Time to Grow There isn’t a single product or program on the market that can give you quick results (aside from programs that leverage Google or Facebook advertising). So you'll need to accept that through consistency you can build yourself a sizeable following. Keep at it, and your three listeners can grow into 30, which can grow into even more!

How to Achieve Success through Intent: One Real Estate Entrepreneur's Story
"Relationships are the driver for me in everything that I do," says Molly McKinley. You may recognize her name as a former technology executive in the real estate space. In fact, it was Molly's relationship with real estate professionals during her time as a tech executive that, in part, led her to start a company of her own, Intentionaliteas, an "intentional gifting platform" that helps agents "stay in flow" with current and past clients via automated gift giving. Molly is the first guest in a new interview series, 24/seven with Bondilyn Jolly, that explores "the person behind the professional." In each episode, host and real estate technology entrepreneur Bondilyn Jolly delves into what makes each guest tick—and what inspiration agents and brokers can learn from them. The series is produced by 3sixtyfive, a creative marketing agency that serves real estate professionals. Each episode delivers content via podcast, video, written interview, and photography. So what's Molly's secret to being remarkable at business? "Being thoughtful," she says in this episode. "We as human beings are just hardwired to connect with each other and that's the part that most people are trying to shortcut." But thoughtfulness takes time, and it isn't always easy, so she wondered how could she create thoughtfulness for people in their businesses so it's not just about technology, but "good, old-fashioned emotional intelligence." Hear more about how Intentionaliteas helps real estate agents achieve just that, Molly's spiritual approach to life and work, her dreams, greatest fears, and hopes for the future in this episode of 24/seven.

What Every Agent Should Know About Podcasting
A popular, but seldom discussed marketing option for real estate agents is podcasting. This medium is uniquely well suited for real estate because of the on-the-go nature of the business. Some agents listen to podcasts to up their selling game. Others create podcasts to share their experiences with other agents or to teach potential buyers and sellers what's what. Other agents, however, aren't familiar enough with podcasts to take advantage of them at all. If you count yourself among these, whether you're interested in listening to podcasts or creating your own, we've got what you need to know about what podcasts are and where to find them below.

Why Reusing Listing Photos Could Mean Legal Trouble
That house you sold in 2012 has just come back on the market. You know you still have a picture somewhere--there it is--and the home still looks pretty much the same. You upload the photo and relist the property. No problem, right? Well, actually, you could be stepping into some dangerous legal territory. We spoke with Larry Lohrman, a real estate photographer and blogger in Salem, Oregon. He frequently writes about issues at the crossroads of real estate and photography. One of the most common topics of discussion on his blog is usage rights for photographs commissioned from professional photographers. "I have a friend who's an agent and photographer in Seattle," he says. After a conversation about just this subject, Lohrman's friend went back to his office of more than 80 agents and asked around. "Down to a person, no one" -- not the managing broker, not a single agent -- "understood that when the agents pay a photographer for photos, they aren't getting ownership of the photos. They're only licensing those photos for a specific time and purpose." A number of recent high-profile cases have brought this issue to light, and may be cause for concern if you're not 100% sure of the legal status of your listing images: In 2008, photographer Liz Ordonez-Dawes was awarded more than $12 million when the court agreed that her client's distribution of seven photographs to third parties constituted copyright infringement. In 2013, Palm Beach County photographer Andy Frame sued several websites over misuse of his photos of Olivia Newton John's home in Jupiter, Florida. In 2014, a class action lawsuit was filed against CoreLogic for allegedly tampering with and distributing proprietary photographic works to their MLS clients.
