Some Things I Hope We Talk About At REBCRDU

Wishing For...The Real Estate BarCamps around the country have been going on for several years, in fact the third REBarCamp will be in Raleigh on October 21st.  We have a habit of asking folks what they want to talk about prior to Camp - to kind of get the "juices going" and to be sure everybody has a voice.

At the recent REBarCamp in Pheonix, they judged the top 5 topics to be :

  1. 101 Begininer Sessions (5 Sites you need to be on, Facebook Marketing Pages v Profiles)
  2. Mobile Applications iOS and Android
  3. Producing Great Video on a Budget 
  4. Outsourcing - How to get an assistant for $3 an hour
  5. Old School meets New School (Door knocking, dialing for dollars, online farming and leveraging technology)

I would expect some of these same topics to be interesting at our camp - although I'm suspecting there will be less of the "beginner" stuff, and more of the Hyper Local Blog Content, and Time Management questions.

I'm also hoping we can talk about some of the things that we are all facing in the Industry right now - like, Outsourcing Short Sales... do you give it to an agent in your office, hire an attorney, or pay a third party?

Lenders AND Real Estate Agents deal each week with families who are losing (or lost) everything.  What resources are available for these families, and what kind of Grief Counseling do we in the Community need to establish?

I hope there's a conversation about the NEXT Generation of Homebuyers... with everything that's happened, how do we position Real Estate as the Investment vehicle we all grew up with it being?

I'm looking forward to our REBarCamp!  I think it will be a great day of MANY conversations!  What are some of the topics you would want to cover at Camp?

So looking forward to it! Looking forward to seeing returning folks and 'where they are now' and new ones too! I'll be curious to see how much interest/discussion there is on Google + and other emerging platforms.

Eleanor, I'm with Heather - it will be fun to compare from our 1st REBCRDU what/where folks are today.  From the response we have on the VBlogger group - I'm banking that there will be a lot of chatter around videos -

Will be interesting for sure!

Sounds like a great exchange of ideas.
