What is overdone is REALTORS® turning themselves into a commodity that only has one weapon, being cheap. If you do not brand and differentiate then they fail.

Just in the last couple of days:

1. "Worn out" lock and combo boxes.

2. "Saturated" - where you know the condo has been in and out of the market for more than a year, yet the DOM shows, like, days. 

3. "Perceived of no value" - reconfigured condos that started out with more bedrooms--but is still being advertised as having more bedrooms. Or where the Lanai has been enclosed and now, technically, you've added square footage. Come on!

Two things come to my mind ... must see and won't last in marketing. 

But wait ... there's more.  Seriously, I agree with most all of the other comments as well.

Annette,

When I read Maria Sapio 's comment, I found that she has answered your question perfectly.  It is time for fresh ideas and fresh words to be used, and to remember that it is more important to talk to people, than the Google bots.  A

Blitz emails from and to agents about new listings, then that it's going to be open on Sunday, then that it's been staged, then it just goes on and on.  I'm now getting about 300 a day, and they all get zapped without opening.  

And I've tried to unsubscribe.

GURU - EVERYONE is a guru in our business - I detest that word because it's been so over-used!

And, using the term EVALUATION instead of VALUATION.  Don't agents know the difference?!

And every marketing gimick or self-created stat you listed in the Q.  Video hasn't gotten there yet, but the "jump on the latest shiny thing bandwagon" for it has been overdone.

 

P.S.  I'm the #1 agent in the world... according to my momma

P.P.S.  Some agent (I think in Canada) actually uses that one!
