Emerging technologies and datadriven startups are

empowering consumers and fundamentally changing the way they buy and sell properties. What’s more, discount and nontraditional brokerages are challenging the longstanding reign of the traditional realtor model. To get a clearer picture of the evolving role of the real estate agent—and the mindset of home sellers in 2019—St. Louis-based Clever Real Estate recently surveyed 1,000 Americans who indicated they were planning to sell their homes within the next year. What they found was that the average homeowner remains ill-informed about real estate commissions. The survey found that 45 percent of home sellers didn’t know they were expected to pay the buyer’s agent commission. The findings echo concerns voiced earlier in the year by the Consumer Federation of America, which called for improvement of disclosure laws, and an outright ban of dual agency. Tom O’Shaughnessy, author of the report from Clever Real Estate, said the poll showed 37 percent of home sellers would consider dual agency, and 46 percent were unsure. These types of arrangements are controversial, as dual agents have no clear fiduciary responsibility to either party involved in the sale. O’Shaughnessy said that despite widespread industry disruption, real estate professionals still have a crucial role to play in the home-selling process—and it’s unlikely that demand for their services is going to go away anytime soon. Most home sellers—even those trying to sell for sale by owner (FSBO)—still need a real estate agent. About 50 percent of respondents said they wouldn’t feel comfortable negotiating with buyers, and about 62 percent wouldn’t feel comfortable finding

and completing the necessary paperwork for closing. Clever’s poll found that many home sellers are on the fence about using a real estate agent, said O’Shaughnessy: 32 percent were unsure if they’d end up using an agent, and 14.5 percent said they were planning to try to sell FSBO. Here are some other takeaways from the study: • Sellers are preparing for a housing market slowdown. Some 65 percent of respondents said they’re willing to wait longer for a better price versus 35 percent of respondents who said theirNo. 1 goal was to sell as quickly as possible. • Consumers are almost ready for AI technology in real estate. Approximately 50 percent of respondents said they would be willing to sell their home using an AI platform that finds potential buyers, and 37 percent believe existing AI tech could outperform a human real estate agent. • While many sellers use the internet to find and vet real estate agents, most (50%) said they rely on referrals from friends and family. • According to survey respondents, the most challenging part of selling a home is preparing it for sale (27%), followed by attracting buyers (20%), pricing it correctly (18%), finding a good real estate agent (13.5%), negotiating with buyers (10.7%), and handling all of the paperwork (9.7%) The key takeaway is that many homeowners simply don’t understand all of the costs involved in selling a home. Real estate agents should set realistic expectations at the outset to avoid nasty surprises and difficult conversations further down the line. This is especially true for first time home sellers, who were 53 percent more likely to believe home buyers pay commissions than experienced home sellers. PAGE | 2


Legislative Day Testimonials Mercedes De La Cruz “Homeownership Matters” -CAR motto. As a proud member of the DAOR, as a first time attendee I had the privilege to experience Leg Day alongside many movers and shakers in our industry, at the Capitol. Meeting with our local senators, participating in sessions such as “How to Survive a DRE audit” with Tom Cameron (asst. Commissioner, Audits), retaining information from our local leaders in government and CAR representatives on proposed bills: is a unique experience and well worth the travel. Having had the opportunity to attend the convention: I now better understand the importance of the RAF and why it is in every Realtor’s best interest to invest into it . Small investments from each individual when collectively put together make BIG differences, especially when leaders come together to listen and address various issues/concerns and positions, that can eventually affect home ownership.

Jennifer Avellan

Attending Legislative Day shows you first hand how important contributing to the REALTOR Action Fund (RAF) is. All REALTORS must at a minimum stay informed of the Red Alerts and the legislation that our advocates are fighting against or fighting for. Legislation is the number one threat against homeownership and our profession.

Tyler Wirth

Ruben Sarinana Jr. It was a blessing to be part of “Leg. Day” this year. Being my first time attending it was a great experience to see how our Real Estate Industry can either be influenced in positive manner to protect our industry. It’s very crucial for us as REALTORS to understand the laws that are being suggested and how our legislators take the time to listen to our voice. It was good to see so many REALTORS from all areas of California and come together as one. We have a voice and we must continue to educate each other and work together to fight on supporting legislation before its too late.

"I had such a great experience attending Realtors’ CAR Leg day. We represent pretty much all homeowners for the entire state. I had no idea that us REALTORS are the only organization fighting for homeownership for the entire United States. We had the opportunity to meet with assemblypersons and state senates to discuss real estate bills in the upcoming elections. Being involved means contributing to our Realtor Relief Fund (RRF), even if it’s the minimum set at $20. This allows for representatives to fight for not only REALTORS right but most importantly homeowners AKA our clients. I recommend everyone to participate just so you can experience what exactly goes on in the State Capitol."

The best CRM is the one an agent uses. Building on exTHE LIFE OF A LEAD isting relationships will keep your business thriving. By Warren Dow

After a year in real estate oper-ations, I’ve chosen to return to the

ranks of real estate software. I hope to put my experience to use helping improve technological efficiencies and engagement across the industry. I continue to be drawn to organizations that focus on leveraging technology to enhance ongoing consumer-engagement. Why? Because many brokerages and real estate professionals focus more on lead generation than on lead engagement. The life of a lead can be for the life of your career, but we often focus too much on the shiny penny rather than the power of continually engaing our database—people who already know and like us or have worked with us in the past. IT’S EASIER TO KEEP AN EXISTING RELATIONSHIP NAR’s 2018 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers outlined that 69 percent of sellers would definitely use their agent again, but only 24 percent do. Homebuyers: 74 percent would use the same agent, but, still, far fewer do. Where is the disconnect? A simple question with a simple conclusion: It is far easier and less expensive to keep an existing relationship than to build a new one. THE MOST IMPORTANT TOOL They say the best CRM is the one an agent uses. A CRM is designed to keep your contacts organized, but it’s also designed to help keep your communications, follow-ups, and tasks organized, as well. That’s why a quality CRM is arguably the essential tool in your marketing tool belt. However, all too often we pay to capture leads, engage them with a few manual emails, and then stop following up because we think they don’t want to work with us. Alternatively, we get the opportunity to help them with the biggest purchase of their life and give them a closing gift hoping that they’ll remember us years later during their next sale. Brokerages need to train their agents on how to leverage their technology infrastructure to develop and automate an effective follow-up cadence that generates repeat and referral business. NO REPLACING PERSONAL CONTACT Technology can’t replace a personal-

ized note from you, but it can help automate other valuable ways to stay in front of your customers. Drip marketing campaigns can nurture your leads before they’re ready to buy or sell, sending a series of emails with useful information based on where the lead is in the process. You can use the same drip marketing tools to send out coordinated and timely information post-transaction as well. Do you want to send a follow-up after your buyers have been in their new home one month? Three months? Send monthly market insights? Provide a complimentary comparative marketing analysis (CMA) on the purchase anniversary for customers each year? Absolutely! But as our database grows, all of these manual follow-ups start falling by the wayside. We need to use the technology at our fingertips to make sure we’re repli-cating our recipe for success and continuing to stay front and center with reduced manual intervention. SERVICES TO SAVE TIME Third-party services can be beneficial in saving time and improving engage-ment as long as they’re branded to the brokerage and agent. There are a wide variety of options to share helpful content that reminds your past customers that you’re still here to help them when they’re ready for their next purchase or sale. Groups like MooveGuru send your leads free home-related, money-saving offers during the home buying/selling process and then continue to deliver branded offers related to home-ownership month after month. Service for Life generates and sends monthly or quarterly branded newsletters to your leads and past customers. One solution isn’t going to work for your complete database. I am an advocate of multi-channel marketing and engagement. By combining manual touch points with various automated ones, brokerages can keep their agents front and center with content that is timely and valuable both pre- and post-transaction. The life of a lead is continually evolving, and the content we send them at various points throughout the relationship must be timely and useful. It could be years before we help a past customer with their next purchase, so leveraging technology in the right way.

Working For You

Legislative Day in Sacramento - Continued by Louie Lujan

which forces all residential rental property owners to participate in all government assistance and housing subsidy programs, such a the Section 8 housing program, by entering into a legally binding contract with a government agency. This bill forces all landlords into contracts whose provisions they may not be able to fulfill. The Greater DAOR delegation also expressed concern to legislators that California is experiencing a chronic housing supply shortage which has resulted in skyrocketing prices. California’s currently holds a population of 40 million with only enough housing for 25 million. This equates to an additional 3 million housing units needed by 2030 in order to meet the growing population numbers at a rate of 180,000 units per year--currently the state is only building half that amount. We stressed that Lawmakers can help increase the housing supply through supporting other bills such as: • AB 1568 Housing Accountability: Holds local governments accountable by withholding gas tax revenue if counties do not meet home building benchmarks verified by the California Department of Housing and Community Development. • AB 1074 Accessory Dwelling Units: Increases housing supply by selling bonds to provide loans to homeowners to construct accessory dwelling units (ADUs). • AB 1020 State Housing Agency: Establishes a state Housing Agency with a cabinet-level Secretary of Housing to oversee all housing-related initiatives and activities throughout the State of California. • SB 509 Affordable Housing License Plate Program: Establishes a housing crisis awareness program through the issuance of a specialty license plate by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. The license plate would generate revenues for affordable housing programs throughout the state. For the past 47 years, Legislative Day has remained C.A.R.’s preeminent legislative event, giving California REALTORS® the opportunity to meet and discuss real estate issues directly with their state legislators and staff. Attending Legislative Day is not only a great investment in our industry, it also provides an opportunity to hear from California’s most dynamic political leaders and C.A.R. leadership.
