by Louis Cammarosano

Based on responses from over 500 real estate agents and brokers nationwide, referrals ranked as the number one marketing preference among real estate professionals for acquiring new clients, with an overall score of 8.95 (out of 10) for effectiveness. Referrals also ranked number one in the 2011 and 2010 surveys.

Leads from brokers (scored a 5.6) and Events (5.26) ranked second and third, respectively, as most effective marketing strategies, which remained unchanged from 2011.
Online lead generation services (5.19) ranked fourth, jumping four positions from the 2011 survey. Email Campaigns (4.92) and Featured Listings (4.91) swapped positions from the 2011 survey and came in fifth and sixth, respectively.

Postcards and Mailers (4.9) were bumped down from sixth in the 2011 survey to seventh. However, it scored half a point higher in 2012. Craigslist (4.3) and Youtube (4.1) ranked eighth and ninth, respectively. Youtube scored 0.6 points higher than in 2011, helping it jump three spots.

In the 2011 survey, Social Media sites like Facebook and Twitter were grouped into one category. In 2012, each site stood on its own. Overall in 2011, Social Media scored a 3.8. In 2012, Facebook (4.0) ranked 10th, Google+ (3.7) ranked 12th, LinkedIn (3.61) ranked 14th and Twitter (3.43) ranked 19th. The average of these scores is 3.69.

Blogging (3.91) ranked 11th in 2012. This represents a 0.62 increase and a jump of two spots from 2011.

“Despite the hype of social media as an effective marketing outlet, real estate professionals once again voted referrals as the most effective and most preferred form of marketing,” said Louis Cammarosano, General Manager of HomeGain. “Also coming in ahead of social media were in person events, like open houses, mailing of post cards and online lead generation services.”

Real Estate 360 Live With Louis Cammarosano 9/24/12

On Monday September 24, 2012, Louis Cammarosano, General Manager of HomeGain, was a guest on the Real Estate 360 Live radio show on The Big Talker 1580 WHFS AM, hosted by Ryan Sloper.

Listen to the show.

Part 1 (14:28)

Ryan and Louis discuss the potential impacts of QE3.

Louis notes that QE3 was masked as a program to create jobs. Louis notes that if they wanted to create jobs for $40 billion a month that they will spend on QE3, they could create 10 million $50K a year make work jobs.

Louis calls the type of economy that the Fed wants to create is one where wealth is created by people moving and out of homes-the musical chairs economy.

Louis notes that QE3 is designed to encourage people to borrow money to buy houses or to discourage savings so people put money into the stock market.

Louis notes that low interest rates help governments to keep their borrowing rates low and also in the hope that low interest rates will help them inflate their way out of their debts.

Louis notes that the housing market should be reflective of the strength of the economy not the driver of the economy.

Louis notes that there does not seem to be a focus on substantive issues in the Presidential campaign.

Louis notes that a Fed President is already talking about adding US Treasuries to their purchases. Louis predicts that if the stock market crashed, the Fed might even buy stocks.

Ryan uses the analogy that the Fed is the Wizard of Oz. Louis makes the analogy of feed the squirrels in the park, as it gives the squirrels a false signal that they can reproduce and that there will be enough food for all.
