How Does it WorkI Want To Learn More

Do you know one of the most effective ways to grow your real estate business, make more money,
and get clients to call you?

Two words, I bet you don’t normally think about – SQUARE FOOTAGE!

Consumers see a billboard about a home being sold at $100.00 per-square-foot and they know exactly what that means. When it comes to real estate, consumers understand very little about the buying, selling, or mortgage processes. But, when it comes to price-per-square-foot, they know exactly what you are talking about and can speak the same language of pricing. It is the most frequently used method to determine real estate prices in the world. Even first-time buyers and sellers understand the formula and know how to use it. While it may not always be very accurate, it is a place to start and is simple to understand. 

There is a degree of science to this and you can learn it all in the exclusive Home Measurement Specialist Certification program. What you’ll learn in this career-changing, one-of-a-kind, 14-hour program, is the “How To” of measuring residential square footage as well as the “Why it Matters” of getting the number right. You’ll never look at price-per-square-foot the same way again.
