Geolocation Smart Sign Technology

Posted by Jenelle Kirton on May 25, 2016 at 1:25 PM Comments comments (0)

We place For Sale signs on front lawns in a scene repeated by thousands of agents across North America every day. But "Special" Ed Haraway, Broker/Owner of EXIT First Realty, has a sign that is different. On Ed's sign, potential buyers see a message prompting them to use the same satellite technology used by a car's GPS system to instantly receive information about the details of the home.

Ed, and each agent in the EXIT system, has access to geolocation Smart Sign™ technology free of charge to market real estate listings for sale across the U.S. and Canada. When an interested buyer sees an EXIT Realty lawn sign and texts EXIT to 85377, the system uses the geolocation positioning of the buyer's mobile phone to determine about which of EXIT's thousands of listings he or she is texting, and then instantly returns information about the listing to the palm of his or her hand.

"Geolocation Smart Sign™ technology turns the lawn sign I've used for 30-plus years into an active marketing tool," says "Special" Ed Haraway. "It's my job to aggressively market every listing and having an edge like this puts property information like price, photos and a direct connection to my cell phone literally into the hands of a potential buyer right when they are in front of the home. My sellers love it too because they see the impact of immediate buyer interaction and see their home being marketed 24/7. Using this system really differentiates me from other REALTORS® when I meet with sellers on a listing appointment because I can show them instantly how effective the system is."

"Consumers are used to using geolocation every day in tools like digital maps," said Tami Bonnell, CEO, EXIT Realty Corp. International. "Buyers want property information when they see the house and they don't necessarily want to talk to an agent right away. With EXIT's Smart Signs™ they can instantly receive property information as easily as sending a text. AT EXIT, all of our technology is accessible on all devices, all screens, all the time. Our technology is future-proof."

Thinking of Selling? Why Now May Be The Time

Thinking of Selling? Why Now May Be The Time

Thinking of Selling? Why Now May Be The Time | Keeping Current Matters

It is common knowledge that a large number of homes sell during the spring-buying season. For that reason, many homeowners hold off on putting their home on the market until then. The question is whether or not that will be a good strategy this year.

The other listings that do come out in the spring will represent increased competition to any seller. Do a greater number of homes actually come to the market in the spring, as compared to the rest of the year? The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently revealed which months most people listed their home in for 2015. Here is a graphic showing the results:

2015 Popular Selling Months | Keeping Current Matters

The three months in the second quarter of the year (represented in red) are consistently the most popular months for sellers to list their homes on the market. Last year, the number of homes available for sale in January was 1,860,000.

That number spiked to 2,280,000 by May!

What does this mean to you?

With the national job situation improving, and mortgage interest rates projected to rise later in the year, buyers are not waiting until the spring. They are out looking for a home right now. If you are looking to sell this year, waiting until the spring to list your home means you will have the greatest competition for a buyer.

Bottom Line

It may make sense to beat the rush of housing inventory that will enter the market in the spring and list your home today.

What to do AFTER the storm has passed

Posted by David Kaufmann on January 23, 2016 at 9:05 PM Comments comments (0)


What to do AFTER the storm has passed:

From the official website of the Department of Homeland Security 01/23/2016

Hello Maryland, now that “Jonas” #Blizzardof2016 has passed, here are a few tips on what to do next.


After Winter Storms And Extreme Cold

  • If your home loses power or heat for more than a few hours or if you do not have adequate supplies to stay warm in your home overnight, you may want to go to a designated public shelter if you can get there safely. TextSHELTER + your ZIP code to 43362 (4FEMA) to find the nearest shelter in your area (e.g., SHELTER20472)
  • Bring any personal items that you would need to spend the night (such as toiletries, medicines). Take precautions when traveling to the shelter. Dress warmly in layers, wear boots, mittens, and a hat.
  • Continue to protect yourself from frostbite and hypothermia by wearing warm, loose-fitting, lightweight clothing in several layers. Stay indoors, if possible.


Learn From Every Storm

Restock your emergency supplies to be ready in case another storm hits.

  • Assess how well your supplies and family plan worked. What could you have done better?
  • Take a few minutes to improve your family plan and supplies before the next winter storm hits.
  • Talk to your neighbors and colleagues about their experiences and share tips with each other.
