10 Article Topics You Should Be Sharing With Your Sphere

Mar 30, 2020 8:00:45 AM

It’s easy to watch the news these days and feel helpless. We wonder if small businesses will weather this storm. We wonder how we'll survive the kids not being in school. But most of all, we wonder how COVID-19 is going to impact us and our families. 

If you've been talking to clients and members of your sphere, you know that fear and anxiety have spread quickly during this outbreak. It's up to you to help them maintain a positive attitude during these tough times. Fortunately, you can do that quite easily, by sharing good news about their finances, fun household tips, and information that will ease their minds. 

To make things easier for you, we've curated a few articles that buyers, sellers and homeowners who aren't thinking about real estate quite yet — but are in your sphere — will find useful. Don't be afraid to send out your own ideas, as well. But remember, things change rapidly during a pandemic, so make sure any information you share is up to date and safe. Avoid anything political or polarizing — the last thing you want to do is anger potential clients and people in your sphere. 

For Owners Not Quite Ready to Sell 

There will be plenty of homeowners waiting to sell until after the COVID-19 threat subsides. The key here is to stay in touch and give them information that reassures them for the near future.

For Owners Ready to Sell

Though many homeowners will postpone their selling plans, others will be hoping their home will still sell in a timely fashion and will look to you (or other sources) to instill confidence. The key with these sellers is to give them that confidence with some good news. Fortunately, the low amount of current inventory means they will likely get a fair price — especially with a quality agent.

For All Other Sphere Members 

Just because some of your sphere members aren't interested in buying OR selling right now does not mean you can afford to lose touch with them. Real estate is based on referrals, and a thoughtful email could make the difference between listing a home for someone's niece or neighbor and falling off the radar!

As always, please don't hesitate to reach out if you or anyone you know wants to chat about real estate.
