5 Tips for a Productive Farming Strategy

1. Do your research before you choose a neighborhood or area to farm!
Don’t pick a specific neighborhood because it’s close to your home or you like the way the houses look, make your choice based on statistical data.  What kind of turnover has taken place in the past 12 months?  Does a specific agent or agency have a huge market-share?  If turnover is low and the neighborhood is dominated already, pick a different area to farm.

2. Consistency is critical!
Mailing to a farm quarterly or every other month isn’t going to get you the result you want.  You must mail to your farm every single month!  Homeowners constantly get mail from real estate agents, but rarely on a consistent basis from one agent.  It’s the agent that is in front of them the most that will get the business.

3. What do you send?
Abandon the envelope and stationery.  You have only a limited amount of time to capture the attention of people, get their attention with a postcard.  Eliminate the chance of someone not opening your mail.  A glossy postcard will at least be looked at and possibly kept if you have good content.

4. What is good content?
Keep your farm abreast of the market conditions at all times.  Average sales price, median sales price, days on market, interest rates, current active inventory and all the information you can provide them to position yourself as the information portal.  Consumers are looking for a competent agent with market knowledge.  Not the agent that sends the best recipe card.

5. Don’t wait for something to happen, make it happen yourself!
As you become established in your farm as the local expert with up to date information you can now leverage yourself to generate even more results.  How do you do this?  Contact every FSBO in the neighborhood.  The FSBO has now become a warm contact for you.  They have been receiving your statistical market information and you have credibility.  Consistently hold open house in your farm area.  A lot of the visitors will be homeowners that have been receiving your valuable market information.

Success Stories

The office is like a team. Everybody is supportive and helpful to one another. There is no competition between agents. Every agent wants their fellow agents to be successful and are more than willing to help them reach that goal.

From the day I started I have received nothing but encouragement and support. Being a "part timer" I thought I would be left to learn on my own. Not true! Everyone from the manager to every agent in the office and especially our coveyancer have been fantastic and most helpful. I could not have picked a better office.

What I like about the office is the ample training, flexible schedule, supportive associates, philanthropic owners, successful agents and especially the five star treatment I receive from the staff!

I joined because a friend has worked here for years and raves about how wonderful the people in the office are. Being new to the business, I could use all the friendly faces I could get and my friend could not have been more right. Any time I had a question and no matter who I asked, a fellow agent, broker or manager, everyone has ALWAYS stopped what they were doing to answer my questions or assist me with whatever I needed. Thank you!
