What's New
Using News To Attract New Clients

Inside Tract News FeedBy all accounts, the real estate market across the nation is improving.  Prices and sales are going up despite (or because of) a shortage of listings.  Nevertheless, real estate agents are still struggling.  According to a recent report, which we covered in our RE News Feed, 4 out of 10 California real estate licensees dropped their licenses in the last 5 years.  Those that remain will still have to struggle to make ends meet.  It may not be enough to knock on doors or hand out flyers.  Agents will have to become more creative in developing ways to contact prospective clients.  Websites and social media will play an important part in this new paradigm.

Inside Tract News FeedWe at The Inside Tract offer a number of tools that cleaver agents can employ in their flyers, web sites and social media.  One simple and FREE resource is our daily RE News Feed.  With a quick glance, you can scan the headlines until you find an article that would be just perfect for your website, Facebook, Twitter or blog.

An RSS News Feed requires an RSS News Reader.  Both Firefox and Safari come with RSS News Readers.  There are also many other RSS News Readers you can download and install for free.  Simply search for RSS News Readers.
