Is Your Tech Effective? 7 Questions to Ask Yourself All this month in Club Zebra we are talking about technology! No matter your relationship with technology, this is a great time to do an assessment of how technology is, or isn't, working for you. Take a few minutes and ask yourself these questions: 1. Is the technology I use in my business saving me time or costing me time? This is a great question that you should be asking! Most agents have opted-in to technologically-based solutions and also have solutions they are required to use. While these solutions may be designed to be more efficient and environmentally-friendly, they can often take more time because the agent isn't comfortable with the process. Think about things like: Ease of using your database Closing an electronic transa...

Residential properties across the NWMLS (26 counties) sold for 107.8% over asking price in April.  King County is one of two counties where inventory is down from a year ago.  This is especially true for condos where inventory is down 35%.  Thus King County prices are up nearly 20% for single family homes and 12.6% for condos  Median price in King County for a house is now nearly $1 million ($995,000) and condos are $518,000.  Nevertheless, inventory across the NWMLS is up slightly and with an uptick in interest rates, some think the real estate market will start to calm.  But, so far, the real estate market continues to be brisk and prices have continued to increase. Closed Seattle home transactions are down to 836 sales compared to 1,022 the previous April, Nevertheless, the average p...

My Biggest Technology Mistakes This week, I'm talking about the biggest mistakes I've made with technology. I've made tons of mistakes over the years, and I want to share them with you. Mistake #1: Spending Money Before Researching The first mistake on my list is wasting money on technology or software that didn't suite me. If something doesn't mesh with my workflow or learning style, there was a very low chance it would be effective. I didn't invest the time to research to see if they would be compatible with me before purchasing them. It's really easy to do the research. You can start researching on YouTube. Look for reviews and tutorials to get a good idea of how the software or service works in real life. Don't waste money on things that don't fit your needs or your business style....

May 2022 Spokane Real Estate Market stats are out ! Reflecting back on April of 2022, there is much to note about the market shifting . Yes , interest rates are going up a bit , and this will begin to have an effect to slow down the abnormally dramatic increase in home prices we have experienced in the past two years .Here are a few things to note : homes sold last month for an average of 5 % OVER the list price , and in just 4 days … if there was EVER a great time to sell your house in the Spokane area , it’s still NOW ! Buyers must have a very strategic plan ( I am having great success getting our buyers under contract, the ones who will take our clear advice ) . If you have any questions about the real estate market in the Spokane area . I would love to chat ! #bethanninspokane #spo...
