Hey, everyone. It’s Bob McCranie with Texas Pride Realty, and I don’t know if you can see the joke on my sign, but today’s realtor idea is people who are downsizing.So, we want to talk to people who have too much house. Maybe their kids just went off to college. Maybe there’s been a death in the family, a divorce, something. They have too much house, and they need a smaller home. So, we can find these people through a variety of ways. One would be by finding out who, you know, on our social media, just had a kid go off to college. Watch for those pictures. Maybe you can see on social media something about their change in family.But we want to find people who are downsizing. They will have a house to sell and a house to buy. So, we might even ask people in our sphere, “Hey. Who do you know that had somebody go off to college?” And then meet those people. “Who do you know that, maybe, has gone through a change of life?” And then go meet those people. Use your social media to find people and ask your sphere to help identify them. “Hey. Put me in contact with these folks. I’d love to help them.”Anyway. There’ll be another post tomorrow. Bye-bye.
Hey, everyone. I know it seems a little early, but it’s not. It’s Christmas decor time. So if you decorate for the holidays like I do, I put up five Christmas trees. It’s a crime. I’m sorry. I do. Five Christmas trees. And my decorations go up the day after Thanksgiving, some of them go up early.
Now is the time to go hit the home and garden stores and figure out what holiday decor you want before everybody else that goes and buys it. Get out there now and find it and have it and you’ll have the best yard, it’ll be amazing. What is that, Christmas vacation? Yeah, you want to have that amazing yard. You also want to start talking about where people decorate a lot so that people…that would be another realty idea later, but look surprised when you see it. So go out to Home Depot, go to Lowe’s, go on Amazon, find the decor you want and put it out there. Tell everybody, “Hey everybody. I’m at these stores. Here’s what they have now. Go get it.” I know Halloween isn’t here yet. Go get it now.
Talk to you tomorrow. Bye.
Hey everyone, it’s Bob McCranie with Texas Pride Realty, and your realty idea of the day is homecoming season. Now, I won’t tell you how long it’s been since I was in high school, but here in Texas when it’s homecoming season, all the girls wear these huge mums and you would think they’d be this size. No, they’re like the size of the front of a Buick. So mums are an important culture item down here. What’s an important culture item for homecoming where you’re at? You obviously have the homecoming game, the homecoming dance. What is it about high school and homecoming that you could talk about?
You also might put out a little schedule about where all the homecomings are for each high school, so people know which weekend, which high school is going to have their big parade and their big event. So you can also talk about teen drinking. You can also talk about being a responsible community member, and doing things for the high school. So, anyway, find a way to talk about high schools, education in your area, homecoming and celebrating what these kids are going through. So, anyway, Bob McCranie, Texas Pride Realty, Class of ’85. Take care. Bye-bye.
Hey, everyone, it’s Bob McCranie with Texas Pride Realty. And today’s realty idea is gonna be very somber, 9/11. It’s interesting to me there are some people who were not old enough to remember 9/11 now. And for those of us who lived through it, it’s marked in our brains. So, maybe we talk today very quietly about the memorial. Maybe we talk today about what it meant to us and then we stay pretty much quiet the rest of the day and just listen. And that may be what we put on our social media is just a question. What does 9/11 mean to you? And see what the response is and then don’t really judge any responses, just say, “Thank you for the response,” build that connection. But today would be a day that I’m quiet and I will listen to what other people post on my thread and then tomorrow I will be much more active. So, take care. Have a great day. Keep safe.
Hey everybody. It’s Bob McCranie with Texas Pride Realty, and your realty idea of the day is hot tubs. Now, hot tubs have a lot of different varieties. There are some that are inexpensive, there are some that have jets all over the place, they have lighting, they have music, they have a pop-up TV. Hot tubs are an affordable way to have a water feature, basically, in your back yard without having to dig a pool. So go to the hot tub store, take some pictures, take some video, show the different models and the different price points. Now in Texas, in Dallas we have the Home and Garden Show which about 17 spa companies come to, so it’s easy to get a lot of these pictures. But if you don’t have that, run to one of the stores around you and talk about hot tubs. It’s something that you would not imagine how many people are interested in and also you can talk about hot tub maintenance. Now on mine I know that during the summer I drain it because I don’t keep it running during the…it’s 110 degrees so why do I need a hot tub? But be sure you drain it so it doesn’t become a mosquito haven. Anyway, Bob McCranie, Texas Pride Realty. There’ll be another realty idea of the day posted tomorrow. Bye-bye.
Hey, everybody. Bob McCranie with Texas Pride Realty. And your realty idea of the day is one that we all go through with our buyer or our clients. Showers versus tubs. Are tubs necessary anymore? If you don’t have small children, that’s a really good question. So, some people love to soak in a tub. I don’t have statistics on it, but I would probably say it’s maybe 10% of the population. I’m totally pulling that out of the air. So, maybe we run a poll. Maybe we run a poll on Facebook and any of our social media. Do you want a tub in your next house or a shower? And let’s find out is the tub coming into style, going out of style? Some people love the foot tubs. I don’t like them because I like to shower and when you’re in one of those, the shower curtain moves in because the air pressure from the shower, don’t like it. So, there are a lot of fancy showers out there with all the different nozzles and heads and things like that. So, let’s talk about showers versus tubs and see what our sphere is wanting. And frankly, if they don’t like their bathroom, let’s go sell them a new house. Talk to you later. Bye-bye.
Hey, everyone. It’s Bob McCranie with Texas Pride Realty and your realty idea of the day is party rental stores. Okay. So you’re having a party for a hundred people, what are you gonna do? Well, the party rental stores are great because you can rent tables, you can rent chairs, you can rent dining room stuff. You can rent dishes and silverware, and serving plates, and everything. You don’t have to go buy it, you just rent it.
Every Thanksgiving like I said I think in a previous video, I serve Thanksgiving dinner for 40 people. I rent the glassware and I rent the silverware, and I rent the dishes, and I rent the chairs. So find a party rental store in your area. Maybe go tour their showroom because a lot of party rental places have showrooms you can go look at. Tour the showroom and then take some pictures, and post it out there. And say, “Hey, if you’re having a party for the holidays, here are some ideas and this store is located near you. And by the way, I know the manager.” Put all this on your social media, get it out there. And you’re giving them a pop, and you’re gonna get a pop for it. Take care. Bye-bye.
