According to the Homes.com real estate trends survey, nearly 42% of real estate professionals say that inventory has been the greatest challenge in their local markets. So the question arises, how are you to continue being successful when provided with limited opportunities to do so?
For John D. Curri, CEO/owner of Curri Properties in Melbourne Fla., the answer is simple. His agent’s success can be attributed to their ability to share large amounts of listing photos with clients and prospects on Homes.com. With the help of Homes.com’s innovative marketing tools, Curri and his team have been able to establish themselves as one of Florida’s premier real estate groups.
When Curri partnered with Homes.com in 2009 there were 8,000 homes for sale in his local market of Brevard County, but have witnessed a major decrease and now only estimate to have roughly 2,800 . “Locally the inventory it still limited, the shortage we’re experiencing today is partly because new building has stopped, so we’ve been focused on selling existing homes” says Curri. Despite this hurdle, Homes.com’s 12.5 million monthly visitors and marketing resources have provided the exposure that Curri and his team need to remain on top of their game.
Homes Connect is an all inclusive real estate marketing product providing real estate professionals with the marketing, social prospecting and advertising tools needed to strengthen their business. “It’s one of those uncomplicated products, my agents and clients like using Homes.com because it is very easy to navigate and offers a very user-friendly experience” Curri explains.
“Providing this portal to agents and clients allows a broker who takes the business seriously to rise to the occasion.”Curri believes that as the nation’s housing market remains on the up and up, his team’s partnership with Homes.com will continue to help them pave their way to success. He concludes by saying “From the beginning, I believed that Homes.com had what it took to become the dominant real estate marketing organization. Not only are they focused on offering fresh, new ideas, but their approach to marketing is similar to ours in that it’s not about the value of the property, but rather the exposure and quality of the property.”
