WOW Summer is here (I think...the Sunshine is up there some where). The market continues to flow. We are seeing average / consistant numbers of sales and more listing have come into the market (I still think we are playing catch-up from the 2010 Olympics). The press seems to be having a "hey day" trying to step on our Profession quoting National Sales stats, as well as, the Competition Bureau and CREA. All I can say is keep quoting your local market place, ignore the press, and be ready to answer what is happening in your backyard. On another note I'd rather buy and hold Real Estate than shares in a News Paper or Television company.
Our website stats continue to improve. We believe it is due to our continued support from our Team, CENTURY 21 Canada, Adam Killam and wheretolive.com. They continue to embracement our web marketing strategy. The CENTURY 21 .CA platform has registered well over 20,000 domains for the CENTURY 21 Canada System. That means whenever you get a listing we the Broker will buy for you the Domain address of that property, as well as put $35.00 towards an ADWORDS campaign at no charge to you. Have 10 listings per year... get 10 FREE WEDSITES and an ADWORDS campaigns. Have 50 listings per year...you do the math!
We also buy domains for your name and an ADWORDS Campaign as well.CENTURY21.ca is getting over 800,000 hits per month, that pretty incredible, since the platform has only been active for 3 years.And remember these stats (below) are just from the company site www.century21intown.ca, it is nice to see the company attracting buyers and sellers to our Realtor's on top of their own personal efforts...Isn't that one of the things a Real Estate Brokerage should be doing?
