It's been a busy and interesting summer in Real Estate so far. April, May, & June were quiet in comparison to other years, but July and August so far have been the opposite. The community of Brandon seems to be over the apprehension of the recession, and looks to be charging ahead full steam.
I have started a few new ideas this year, one being twitter. You can be the first to know about new listings by following me at; www.twitter.com/brandon_realtor
Another one is textmelistings, I have placed riders on my sign posts, each one has a text number and code where a prospective buyer can get instant information on the property in a text message.
Something I have been doing on my higher-end listings, is creating video slideshows of the homes. The one I have currently running is my listing near Wawanesa, you can watch this on youtube.
