Tom Ferry Discusses How To Conquer Your Phone Phobia and Create a Natural Prospecting Experience

Every time you fail to pick up the phone when you’re supposed to, the gap between you and your goals widens. There is no simple answer or “quick fix” to this dilemma. But there are ways to make prospecting easier.

And that’s what this episode of the #TomFerryShow is all about.

Landline Phones Are a Dying Breed

Source: Statista

As smartphones have become a constant companion for most people in the United States, landline phones are rapidly losing their relevance. In 2004, more than 90 percent of households in the U.S. had an operational landline phone – now it’s (significantly) less than 50 percent. That’s according to data provided by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, which has been tracking phone ownership in the U.S. as a by-product of its biannual National Health Interview Survey since 2004.

If the trend continues at the current pace, and there’s little reason to believe it won’t, landline phones could soon become an endangered species, much like the VCR and other technological relics before it.

Redfin Identifies 25 Neighborhoods that “Have It All”: Affordable Homes, Highly Rated Schools, An Easy Commute And Plenty of Inventory

Chicago’s Dunning and Ashburn Top the List, Followed By Squirrel Hill in Pittsburgh

Seattle, WA – Jan. 8, 2018 (PRNewswire) (NASDAQ: RDFN) — Just 25 neighborhoods have a mix of affordable homes, highly rated schools, access to public transit and plenty of inventory, according to an analysis of 80 major U.S. markets conducted by Redfin, (www.redfin.com), the next-generation real estate brokerage.

More than half of the neighborhoods on Redfin’s list of neighborhoods that “have it all” are in the Chicago area, the rare major metro area that has remained relatively affordable and has largely bucked the severe inventory shortage trend seen across much of the country over the past few years. Neighborhoods in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston and Miami also made the list. These are places to watch in 2018, when we expect last year’s trend in migration from expensive, high-tax coastal markets like San Francisco, Silicon Valley and New York toward smaller, more affordable cities, to intensify.

Chart

Redfin identified the neighborhoods using the following criteria:

  • Affordability: Zip codes were selected that had a median home sale price below the national median of $291,700.
  • Home Selling Speed: Several months of falling inventory and strong demand mean the most desirable homes go off the market within days of being listed. Selected zip codes had a median days on market of at least 46.
  • Highly Rated Schools: Neighborhoods with a GreatSchools rating of 5, which is considered average, or higher were chosen.
  • Transit: Neighborhoods with a Transit Score® of at least 50, indicating many nearby public transportation options, were included.
  • Low Crime Rates: Using crime data from BestPlaces, our ranking favored places with lower reported violent crime.

The new tax bill, which caps state and local tax (SALT) deductions at $10,000, compounds affordability concerns, particularly in the high-tax state of Illinois, home to 14 of the 25 highlighted neighborhoods. Redfin agent Alex Haried in Chicago, says taxes should always be considered when analyzing affordability.

“Our general rule of thumb in Chicago is to set aside about 2 percent of the sale price for local taxes each year,” he said. “These are the same taxes that help the city maintain a world-class transit system and help our schools rank highly, so it’s a necessary evil and a big reason why so many Chicago zip codes made the cut.”

Another theme for areas that ranked highly was access to job centers, which is the case for Squirrel Hill in Pittsburgh.

“Relocators have really taken kindly to Squirrel Hill not only because of the affordability, but also the commute,” said Redfin Pittsburgh agent Jennifer Sowers. “Google, Uber and Carnegie Mellon University are large employers in the area and a short commute away via public transit.”
