Changes, whether external or personal, invariably generate real estate sales opportunities.
In our busy, complex world, it really is true that ‘the only constant is change, continuing change, inevitable change…’
From the perspective of real estate marketing, these changes could be external, personal or attitudinal.
Regardless of the nature of individual changes, inevitably all changes generates new real estate sales opportunities.
Changes In External Circumstances
External circumstances include all of those factors that are at play outside of our normal day-to-day lives.
These are economic elements such as downturns, upturns, interest rates, stock market gains or losses, government budgets and so on.
Although few of us totally understand the workings of these and other economic elements, we have all experienced the changes that they have brought about in our lives.
Similarly, there are external market considerations that generate their own range of changes.
Circumstances such neighborhood developments, type and location of individual properties, number of listings are all external factors that stimulate change.
Regardless of the nature of the external factor … and how much we talk about it … we have no control over external factors and the changes that they stimulate.
Changes In Personal Circumstances
Individuals and members of families all experience changes in personal circumstances.
They get new jobs, lose existing jobs, babies are born, older children leave home, some people get sick, and people die.
All of these factors change housing needs and wants.
And like external factors, we have no control over personal circumstances and the changes that they stimulate.
Changes In Attitude
And regardless of highly you are regarded in your area, prospective clients will have different attitudes toward you as a real estate sales person.
There is however good news.
Not only are these attitudes subject to change … by using effective marketing communications, you can help bring about changes in these attitudes.

Ideally, this information will lead them to the conclusion that if and when they are ready to buy or sell their homes, you are their best choice as a real estate professional.
Your Response To Changes
