Top Five Free NAR Right Tools, Right Now

If you’re like many Realtors, your interaction with the NAR mothership probably consists of you sending them money, and them sending you political alerts. But lately the National Association of Realtors has really stepped up to help strapped real estate agents by offering many useful NAR tools for free.

If you’re like many Realtors, your interaction with the NAR mothership probably consists of you sending them money, and them sending you political alerts. But lately the National Association of Realtors has really stepped up to help strapped real estate agents by offering many useful NAR tools for free.

They call it “Right Tools, Right Now”. I say it’s the right price, at the right time. Here are 5 of my favorites, all at my favorite price of $0.

2008 NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers

2008 Nar Profile

If your pressed for time you can always read the NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers Highlights. Though I really recommend downloading this free pdf and perusing it for 20 minutes. It’s packed with some of the most useful and accurate information regarding buyers and sellers out there.

Seeing as your job consists of working with buyers and sellers every day, it pays to know the enemy (kidding!). If you’re going in to your next listing presentation and just guessing what sellers actually want, you should reschedule and read this book first.

NAR Member Profile

2009 NAR Member Profile

For the curious ones. Ever wanted to know how many other Realtors are bringing in $250k a year like you? Or, perhaps a bit more humbly, how many other Realtors only sold a single house last year? (Hint: it’s a depressingly high number)

Then this is the book for you. Learn all about average Realtor expenses, income, areas of expertise, and more.

Realtor FYI Brochure

It Pays To Work With A Realtor Brochure

You’ve invested a lot of time and money to become a Realtor, but the sad fact is many consumers have no idea about the difference between you and the unwashed masses of licensees.

So, add this brochure to your marketing packages, and help clear up the confusion. You’ll have to pay if you want the actual brochure (with die cut slots for your card!), but you can download it for free and print it yourself.

Homebuyer’s Tax Credit

NAR Homebuyer’s Tax Credit Brochure

There’s not a ton of time left, but jig’s not quite up on the 2009 Homebuyer’s Tax Credit. Download this pdf, and you can email it to clients instead of pretending your a tax advisor and trying to explain it yourself.

Also a great resource to include as a download on your website… I smell a lead generator…

FHA Real Estate Guide

NAR FHA Guide and Toolkit

Unless you’ve been out of the country for the past year, you’ve probably noticed that government seems to be playing a larger and larger role in our economy. The same holds true for our real estate economy, and if you’re not yet familiar with FHA loans, click the purple book and start your journey down the rabbit hole.
