Spring selling season is just around the corner! What are you doing to get ready? If you haven’t started preparing for spring selling season you need to get started. During the holiday slow time is the best time to make sure that you have everything you need to hit the ground running once those spring listings start and spring homebuyers start contacting you. Here are the things you should be doing right now to get ready for the busy spring selling season:
Work On Your Listing Skills
Do you have a phone with a good camera or a professional quality camera to take great photos, create video tours, and film your listings? If not you need to get shopping. And once you have the right equipment you need to learn how to use it. Take that camera for a test drive and start practicing creating video home tours, video listings, and other multi-media listings. Those multi-media pitches are the things that are going to sell more houses this spring.

Update Your Promotional Materials
When was the last time you ordered business cards? You need to make sure that you have plenty on hand for the busy spring season. And when was the last time you updated your cards? Make sure that they have your current phone number as well as all your social media handles and your website on them. If clients can’t reach you or don’t know where to look for your listings that will end up impacting your sales.
Stock Your Vehicle
Make sure that you have a cleaning kit, extra promotional materials, extra phone chargers and other equipment that you might need already packed up in your vehicle. It’s also a good idea to put some water and some snacks or protein bars in there too. When you’re running back and forth on a busy day of showings and open houses having plenty of water and healthy snacks will save you time and cut down on the chances that you will end up eating unhealthy drive through because you’re pressed for time. Plan ahead and stay organized if you want to make this the best selling season yet.
Update Your Computer
When you work in the real estate industry you have to have the best tech available. It will save you a lot of time and frustration. So if it’s been a few years since you bought yourself a new laptop or computer check the post-holiday sales and upgrade your computer now. That way you’ll have time to get familiar with it and learn how to use all the cool features it has before the season really gets going. Making listings, keeping in touch with clients, and doing other work will be a lot faster and easier if you have an updated computer to work on.
