How Does SCREnews.com Help You?By
On a conference call yesterday, I was asked why I maintain this website. Well, the original intent was to generate some appraisal/consulting assignments, which it has done. It has also helped with general networking, as I routinely hear “you are the one that does the news website right?” Last week, I interviewed an impressive soon-to-be college graduate. Why did he decide to contact me? His father is a real estate professional and subscriber to SCREnews (Thanks Randy). Maintaining the website also forces me to stay on top of what is happening all across the Palmetto State. Brokers and lenders also send me their press releases on closed deals – as an appraiser, I can’t get data any more current than that. So, let’s see….the three to five hours a week help in the following areas:
- Business development
- Employee recruitment
- Statewide market knowledge
- Recent sale comparable data
The return on investment far outweighs the time commitment….
I am curious though – how do you use this website? Are you a subscriber to the daily e-mail updates? Do you feel like this website saves you time in researching? Please give me some feedback, either as a comment below this post, or to the e-mail address below. Constructive criticism is welcomed as well.
