Every week the El Arroyo Restaurant, a long time watering hole and hangout for Mexican food in downtown Austin, posts funny sayings on their billboard. Here’s the one they posted to ring in 2022—Margaritas anyone?
Given all the challenges we have endured in 2020 and 2021, it’s important to laugh whenever you can and to acknowledge what did go right.
2021 turned out to be one of the best years ever in terms of closed transactions, volume, and low interest rates. Inventory continues to be a challenge. With so many people continuing to work remotely, look for the “great reshuffling” trend to continue and for more inventory to become available.
To start your 2022 off with a bang, be sure to send your clients who closed a property in 2021 a copy of their closing documents as well as any tax information that may help them with filing their property taxes.
Second, it’s also a great time to send out an Annual Report—this is a combination of the closed sales for 2021 in your client’s area (include photos if you can), a copy of the NARRPR.com property reports (no charge for NAR members), and a good-looking color cover page featuring a local area landmark. Put it all together into a digital book and you’ll have your clients’ friends and families asking for a copy for their properties as well.
Have a great week and may your 2022 be filled with good health, happiness, and success!
