http://www.batonrougerealestatebuzz.com/ – Baton Rouge Real Estate Agents: Would A Geographical Competency Map Of Your Previous Listings Help You Earn More Listings? If you’re an experienced agent, it certainly would by adding hundreds of red labels on a Google map.
As the map above illustrates, I recently learned how to use Google Maps to Geocode some of the home addresses I’ve been appraising. This process created a “Geographical Competency Map” illustrating my competency to appraise homes in certain local housing markets. In an HVCC era, this helps me to prove that I’m “geographically competent” to appraise homes locally and that I’m not traveling 50 miles out of my normal marketing area or beyond my market competency.
Question: If you as a local real estate agent created such a map to show to your listing prospects, would it help you earn more listings? I think it would!
I learned to create such a map by watching this video below and checking out REBliss.com’s How To Use Google Maps to Show Your Geographic Competency.
