Recent sales…it’s what everybody wants to know. It’s what I get asked when I go to dinner. It’s what I get asked when I’m out surfing. It’s what I get asked when I’m sitting on the ski lift. “What did X property sell for?”
Because of this very question that continues to perplex even the most tuned-in San Francisco real estate agent, I started a newsletter about 9 years ago. That newsletter was called sfnewsletter. The whole point was to provide a weekly snapshot of everything in San Francisco that just came on the market, and everything in San Francisco that just sold. The newsletter was sent to tens of thousands of people, and was a screaming success. It’s only natural that it was plagiarized.
Hill & Co. now has a newsletter that is almost a spitting image, and the company where I hang my license (Zephyr Real Estate) has it’s own carbon copy. So I decided I didn’t need to write the content any more, and I’d just let Zephyr do it for me, because it’s really not the content all of the readers want, it’s the data. What listed, what sold…sortable by district, and property type. However, because the Multiple Listing Service has “real time” sold data under strict lock and key, you can’t just access it from anywhere. You gotta be connected to a Realtor.
Therefore, I extend an invitation to all of you to begin receiving these sold updates in your inbox every other week. There are two catches: 1) I need your email. 2) If you receive the data from me, and then choose to buy or sell a home with a different agent that doesn’t provide you valuable information like this, I will send my cousin Guido out to your house, and he will bust your knees. Deal?
If you’d like to be added to the distribution list, just shoot me an email, and state in the subject “Please add me to your real estate newsletter“. Trust in the fact that I will simply add you to the newsletter and not email you to constantly solicit your business, and I certainly will not sell or re-distribute your email to anyone. In return, I will trust that you contact me when you are ready to buy or sell San Francisco real estate. It’s a win-win.
