Spring sales season is closer than ever! Are you ready to have the best spring home sales season yet? If you haven’t started getting ready yet you need to start right now so that you can get the jump on the competition and start out the season strong. Here is a quick look at the things you should be doing right now to get ready for a busy spring selling season:
Update Your Marketing Materials
Do you have enough business cards? Do they have all your current social media addresses and handles? If you’re going to change your Facebook page to a Facebook group to avoid a slump because of Facebook’s new newsfeed policy you should update your marketing materials and get new ones printed. Now is the time to go over all your marketing materials and make sure that your phone number, email and social media addresses are all current. Since you may have to wait a week or two for printing and delivery get those materials updated and ordered now so that they will arrive in plenty of time.
Upgrade Your Equipment
Do you need to upgrade your smartphone? If you want to make sure that you can take amazing looking photos and videos you should upgrade your phone to the latest model of whatever platform you prefer. These days it’s more important than ever to be able to get great photos and to take streaming video that will make buyers want to tour homes. You may even want to invest in a professional quality DLSR camera to get the best possible photos. And you will need a high-quality desktop or laptop to post all your listings. If you need to update your PC or tablet now is the time to do that as well.
Be More Active On Social Media
If you slacked off on social media over the holidays now is the time to dust off those accounts and get posting again! Start engaging with your followers and building those social media relationships now so that you’ll have a great base of followers once those listings start rolling in. Make sure that you’re posting plenty of photos and make sure that your content is always informative and engaging.

Stock Your Vehicle
You will probably be spending a lot of time in your vehicle once the sales season gets rolling so make an inventory list and get that vehicle stocked. Make sure that you have plenty of marketing materials and other information. But you also should keep a backup phone charger in your car, or a battery operated phone charger. And you’ll need a cleaning kit for the homes you’re listing as well as extra water for those days when you don’t have time to stop for a drink. It never hurts to keep some protein bars or snacks in the car too.
