These free member benefits will provide you with data for sales presentations, help you obtain listings, and enable to you document customer satisfaction and share client recommendations easily.
The New Year provides you with a new opportunity to step up your game, and Orange County REALTORS®has the tools to help you do it. If you haven’t used the reports from OC FastStats in a listing presentation, then you are missing out. OC FastStats offers local market reports for 188 areas throughout Orange County from Northpark to Villa Park and everything in between. If you are looking for something a little broader, then you can download the Orange County Monthly Market Indicators report, which summarizes market data for the County as a whole. All of these reports are available at www.ocar.org/ocfaststats.
Monthly Housing Summary
In addition to the plethora of data provided by OC FastStats, Orange County REALTORS®staff started publishing the Monthly Housing Summary, which is a quick look at the fifteen cities within our jurisdiction. If you need some quick data for a presentation, the Monthly Housing Summary will do the job! You can download the latest summary online at www.ocar.org/monthly-summary.
Once you’ve gotten the listing, you will need to market it. One of our latest benefits available to members is called Rela. Rela allows you to create single-property websites for up to three listings for free. It also provides marketing ﬂyer templates to help you promote your listings. Once you enter the listing address, Rela will prepopulate the website with information from the MLS to simplify the process. You could even use Rela during a listing presentation to show prospective clients how you might market their property. To learn more about Rela, visit www.ocar.org/rela
After you have successfully marketed your listing and sold it, you can take advantage of another benefit that was added in 2017. RealSatisfied is a customer satisfaction platform designed exclusively for the real estate industry. RealSatisfied provides an interactive customer satisfaction survey that your clients will respond to in full. The simple Agent Dashboard then makes it easy to share your client recommendations with third-party sites like Twitter and Facebook and automatically syndicates approved recommendations to partner platforms such as realtor.com. To sign up for RealSatisfied, visit www.ocar.org/realsatisfied
With the help of these benefits, we hope that you have a breakthrough year!
