Using Facebook Ads to Fill Your Pipeline [FREE WEBINAR]
  Research from the National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers has shown that buyers consistently cite honesty, responsiveness, knowledge of the real estate market, and communication skills as being very important qualities a real estate agent should have. Today's real estate consumers want to work with a professional who knows their local area extremely well and can provide relevant market information that will assist in the home buying or selling process. What if you could predict when these specific consumers might be preparing to buy or sell a home, and you could target them online? Using life event triggers frequently tied to a home sale/purchase you can do so with Facebook's ad targeting. According to a study from the Pew Research Center, as opposed to simply reading or viewing content, 65% of Facebook users frequently or sometimes share, post, and comment on Facebook, making it a great place to reach consumers where they are already engaged. With the ability to target ads based on a number of demographics and "life events" such as people who have recently gotten engaged or married, started a new job, or moved, you can more effectively zoom in on people who are more likely to be in the market to buy or sell. It's time to start using this information to target those hot prospects! Join us on Thursday, September 29 as we explore the use of Facebook ads for lead. We'll walk through how you can use specific life events to target potential buyers and sellers and build a network of "future leads" to fill your pipeline and nurture until they're ready to start the real estate process. Here's a quick sneak peek of what the webinar will cover: Click here to register for this free webinar on Thursday, 9/29 and learn how you can start leveraging Facebook ads like a PRO!

Market Leader Expands HouseValues.com by Combining Exclusive Territories, Guaranteed Leads & Award-Winning Marketing and CRM Tools
KIRKLAND, WA -- 12/12/12 -- Market Leader, a leader in online marketing and technology solutions for real estate professionals, has expanded and enhanced its HouseValues.com product in response to improving real estate market conditions and significantly increased demand for seller leads from real estate professionals. The new HouseValues.com provides real estate professionals with exclusive territories, a guaranteed number of seller leads every month, and access to an integrated version of the company's award-winning Market Leader Professional -- a comprehensive CRM and marketing platform -- to help them convert these prospects into clients and grow their overall business. "At Market Leader, we are continually investing to help our customers stand out and be successful, and these enhancements to HouseValues.com are just the latest example of that," said Ian Morris, CEO Market Leader. "We're seeing strong demand from serious prospective sellers for timely and accurate information about their home. Our real estate professional customers are eager to provide their expertise, and in turn get the opportunity to win new clients." HouseValues.com provides local real estate professionals with exclusive access to the prospective sellers they covet, a very different approach from that used by other companies who forward consumer requests to many agents at the same time. This exclusive approach is optimal for agent and consumer alike because it provides consumers with the real information they seek from one local professional while that agent has an exclusive opportunity to use their expertise to earn a new client. "The exclusivity of my territory and of each consumer request is key," said Kevin Klowe, associate broker at RE/MAX Elite in Albuquerque, NM. "I'm not competing with other agents to respond to a consumer request. I'm positioned as the exclusive expert in my area, which is a huge advantage in converting leads into listings and closed business." Both long-time and new HouseValues.com customers are already utilizing the product to rapidly win listings and grow their business as the housing market rebounds in many markets across the country. "We are approaching $20 million dollars in sales for the year, and 90 percent of those deals are from our HouseValues.com exclusive territories," said Stacey Dancey, who works with Surterre Properties in Newport Beach, Calif, and has been a customer of HouseValues.com for more than ten years. In addition to exclusive home seller leads and the new lead guarantee, HouseValues.com customers also get complete access to Market Leader Professional, which includes comprehensive customer relationship management (CRM) tools, thousands of marketing campaigns and templates, exclusive success coaching and much more. All of this is provided to HouseValues.com customers in one integrated solution designed to help them grow and manage their business. "HouseValues.com has opened so many doors for me, and represents at least 50 percent of my income year after year," said Coleen Brennan, a real estate agent with Prudential California Realty in Southern California. Brennan has been the top agent in her office for seven consecutive years, and attributes her winning streak to HouseValues.com. "I have peace of mind about my future business," Brennan said. "I open my email each morning and there's always a new lead, a response from a prospect, or a home seller ready to go. "And it's never just one lead," said Brennan. "When we stay engaged with our customers, those first leads branch off, becoming repeat transactions and referrals on a regular basis. It's my secret weapon." For more information about HouseValues.com exclusive territories, to join a wait list for territories in your market, or to learn more about other Market Leader products, please visit http://www.marketleader.com.

GLVAR reports increasing local home sales, as prices begin to level off heading into winter
LAS VEGAS – After eight straight months of rising local home prices, statistics released today by the Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS® (GLVAR) show existing home sales increasing and home prices beginning to level off. GLVAR President Kolleen Kelley, a longtime local REALTOR®, said she it was only a matter of time before the eight-month run of rising local home prices came to an end. "The biggest thing I noticed in this month's report is that the inventory of homes available for sale went up. We sold fewer homes in October than we listed," Kelley explained. "As inventory goes up, you're not going to see prices go up as much. It's supply and demand." She added that local home prices typically drop along with the temperature. Based on these seasonal trends, she said stable home prices heading into the holidays would be a good indication that the local housing market is continuing to rebound from the downturn of the past few years. GLVAR's statistics continue to paint a picture of a housing market transitioning from foreclosures to short sales – which occur when a lender agrees to sell a home for less than what the borrower owes on the mortgage. The percentage of local existing homes sold as part of a short sale are hovering at record levels and have nearly doubled in the past year, Kelley added. Kelley said many homeowners have been rushing to short-sell their homes by the end of 2012, when the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act is set to expire unless Congress acts to extend it. If Congress does not extend this law by Dec. 31, she said any amount of money a bank writes off in agreeing to sell a home as part of a short sale will become taxable when sellers file their income taxes. GLVAR said the total number of local homes, condominiums and townhomes sold in October was 3,651. That's up from 3,298 in September, but down from 3,881 total sales in October 2011. Compared to September, single-family home sales during October increased by 11.9 percent, while sales of condos and townhomes increased by 5.7 percent. Compared to one year ago, home sales were down 4.3 percent, while condo and townhome sales were down 12.5 percent. As for prices, GLVAR reported the median price of single-family homes sold in October was $140,000, the same as in September and up 15.7 percent from one year ago. October's flat prices marked the end of the longest run of monthly price appreciation since at least 2004. Meanwhile, the median price of local condominiums and townhomes sold in October was $72,000, up 2.5 percent from $70,250 in September and up 22.0 percent from one year ago. The total number of homes listed for sale on GLVAR's Multiple Listing Service bounced back in October, with a total of 16,778 single-family homes listed for sale at the end of the month. That's up from 16,775 homes listed for sale at the end September, but down 21.9 percent from one year ago. GLVAR reported a total of 3,880 condos and townhomes listed for sale on its MLS at the end of October, up 2.0 percent from 3,805 condos and townhomes listed at the end of September, but down 15.0 percent from one year ago. The number of available homes listed for sale without any sort of pending or contingent offer also increased from the previous month. By the end of October, GLVAR reported 4,079 single-family homes listed without any sort of offer. That's up 3.4 percent from 3,943 such homes listed in September, but still down 60.6 percent from one year ago. For condos and townhomes, the 1,341 properties listed without offers in October represented a 10.3 percent increase from 1,216 such properties in September, but a decrease of 38.5 percent from one year ago. In October, GLVAR reported that 54.1 percent of all existing homes sold in Southern Nevada were purchased with cash. That's down from 54.8 percent in September. Meanwhile, 44.7 percent of all existing local homes sold during October were short sales. That's down slightly from a record 44.8 percent in September, but still up dramatically from 25.4 percent one year ago. Continuing a trend of declining foreclosure sales in recent months, bank-owned homes accounted for 11.6 percent of all existing home sales in October, down from 13.6 percent in September. GLVAR reported that the median price of bank-owned single-family homes sold in October was $132,575, up from $130,000 in September. The median price of single-family homes sold as part of a short sale in October was $127,500, the same as in September. These GLVAR statistics include activity through the end of October 2012. GLVAR distributes such statistics each month based on data collected through its MLS, which does not necessarily account for newly constructed homes sold by local builders or for sale by owners. Other highlights include: The monthly value of local real estate transactions tracked through the MLS during October increased by 12.8 percent for homes to nearly $522 million. For condos and townhomes, the total value of all sales in October was nearly $65 million, up 6.7 percent from September. Compared to one year ago, total sales volumes in October were up 11.5 percent for homes and up 13.8 percent for condos and townhomes. In October, 69.6 percent of all homes and 75.1 percent of all condos and townhomes sold within 60 days. That compares to September, when 67.2 percent of all homes and 71.8 percent of all condos and townhomes sold within 60 days. About the GLVAR Celebrating its 65th anniversary, GLVAR was founded in 1947 and provides its nearly 11,000 local members with education, training and political representation.

Prudential Network Realty Supporting Wreaths across America Campaign for Veterans
Prudential Network Realty is launching a local effort to support "Wreaths Across America," a national campaign designed to honor fallen veterans. According to the company, the program collects donations to purchase commemorative wreaths, which will be placed on the headstones of veterans buried at the national cemeteries and other locations across the country. Simultaneous wreath-laying ceremonies will be held at more than 750 locations around the world on Saturday, Dec. 15, including the national cemeteries in Jacksonville and St. Augustine. "It is a great honor to be a part of this national effort to place a holiday wreath on every veteran's head stone," said Prudential Network Realty Broker/Manager Ann King of the company's St. Augustine office, who initiated the company's participation in the campaign. "We are proud to support this deserving program." Prudential Network Realty is accepting donations or sponsorships to support the purchase of additional wreaths. The cost is $15 for each wreath. The deadline to donate or purchase a sponsorship is August 1. Contact Ann King at (904) 471-6906 for more information. "We believe in the American dream, and it is our privilege to be a part of a campaign that acknowledges those who sacrificed so much to protect our freedom," said Christy Budnick, executive vice president of residential real estate, Prudential Network Realty. "We appreciate the opportunity to support this program and its efforts to remember and honor veterans in Northeast Florida and across the country." The wreath-laying program began in 1992 when a wreath company placed wreaths on the headstones at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, D.C. Interest in the program grew and the company founded Wreaths Across America, which is expected to distribute more than 400,000 wreaths nationwide in this year's campaign.

Nevada REALTORS® rally to promote homeownership at NAR’s 2012 Midyear Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo
Elected leaders of the Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS® (GLVAR) and the Nevada Association of REALTORS® (NVAR) were among an estimated 15,000 REALTORS® who trekked to Washington, D.C., last week for a rally at the Washington Monument to promote homeownership while attending the National Association of REALTORS® 2012 Midyear Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo. GLVAR President Kolleen Kelley, from Southern Nevada, and NVAR President Blane Johnson, who lives in Northern Nevada, were among nearly 50 Nevadans who rallied on behalf of homeowners, real estate investors and aspiring homeowners. They also met with members of Nevada's congressional delegation to discuss key issues. Highlighting this year's meetings, the Rally to Protect the American Dream took place on Thursday, May 17. REALTORS® from every state in the country joined invited members of Congress to highlight the important role housing plays in the American economy and to advocate for policies that support homeownership. Speakers included Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md. "REALTORS® have always been advocates for homeownership," Kelley said. "We want to make sure that people who want to own a home and those who can afford to invest in real estate will continue to have the opportunity to do just that." Johnson added that "the REALTOR® rally was a great experience. It was our way of letting Americans know that homeownership impacts families, communities, small businesses and the nation's economy in a meaningful way. It's an important part of the American dream, especially here in Nevada, and it needs to be promoted and preserved." Photos and videos from the rally are available at realtorrally.org. The year's NAR meetings focused on a number of pressing issues that affect the real estate market in Nevada and nationwide, as well as the nation's 75 million homeowners and aspiring homeowners. Sessions focused on the need for affordable financing, secondary mortgage market reform and economic issues related to residential and commercial real estate. While in Washington, Johnson and Kelley met lawmakers on Capitol Hill to address issues such as the need to streamline short sales, preserve tax benefits for homeownership and bolster liquidity in the commercial market. They also joined other NAR members in urging lawmakers to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program, which is currently set to expire on May 31. Throughout the week, REALTORS® participated in sessions with several government officials and industry experts, including representatives from the Federal Housing Administration, Mortgage Bankers Association of America, Federal Housing Finance Agency, Federal Reserve Board, National Economic Council, and the U.S. Treasury. During the meetings, former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, leading Democratic strategist Celinda Lake and National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling participated in a panel discussion about how the 2012 elections could change the real estate industry. Federal Reserve Board Governor Elizabeth Duke spoke during the joint Real Estate Services and Regulatory Issues Forum – Prescriptions for Housing Recovery. Duke discussed how a full housing market recovery could not happen until policymakers move forward with the difficult decisions regarding that future of the mortgage market. A panel of industry experts and representatives including FHFA Acting Director Ed DeMarco, FHA Commissioner and Assistant Secretary for Housing Carol Galante, Moody's Analytics Mark Zandi and Wharton School of Business Professor Susan Watcher discussed housing policy, specifically the mortgage interest deduction, government-sponsored entities and the government's role in promoting homeownership.
