So, you've decided to be a Realtor. Starting a real estate business can be a nerve-wracking and rewarding experience. Many tasks need to get done before your new business can get off the ground. From setting up your office to planning an open house, you'll need several different supplies, including signage to promote your real estate business and listings.
Home Office. Every agent needs an office. Unless you work for a firm, that office will more than likely be at home. Grab a desk, computer, and printer for your essential everyday tasks, a calendar to organize open houses and individual showings, and a tape measure so you can make sure those blueprint details are just right. Don't forget to add a plant or painting to make your office space fit your personality and taste!
Marketing. After you've set up your office, you need to market your business around town. Add a business window decal or car magnet to your vehicle for mobile advertising and brochures and business cards for those more personal networking needs.
Outdoor Signs. Don't just stop there! Once you've got a house to sell, you'll need material to let everyone know it is for sale! There is a variety of real estate outdoor signs that can help: sign posts, riders, banners...the list goes on. Don't forget to design your real estate sign with these tips and tricks!
Open House. You've got the office and marketing down, but now you need to prepare for an open house! Nothing grabs attention like a big "OPEN HOUSE" banner (balloons are also nice). Greet your guests with a welcome sign and friendly hand shake. Make sure to include a folder or flyer so potential buyers can take essential information home with them to review.
