SUGGESTION ONLY FOR Debe Maxwell, CRS. THIS IS AN ENTRY ONLY FOR:

ActiveRain Challenges & Contest Ideas - What's Yours?

THIS IS NOT AN ACTUAL CONTEST OR CHALLENGE UNLESS AR SAYS SO AND THEY SPECIFY WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AND WHO WILL RUN THE CONTEST, ETC. 

  

What I would like to learn from other members and what I think others may be interested in learning are the following:

  1. What is trending in your area in new construction?
  2. What take-away did you learn from visiting new construction?
  3. What new ideas could enhance a seller's home to list?

Topic Idea & Challenges

Challenge #1:

What's new and trending in new construction in your area? Visit 1 - 3 New Construction sites. 

By using video, showcase what builders are offering home buyers in your area. Ideas may include:

  • Location
  • Price ranges
  • Square Feet
  • New Concepts
  • Adorable Designs
  • Colors
  • Kitchen Cabinets, Counter Tops, Appliances
  • Flooring
  • New Products
  • Energy Savings

Challenge #2:

Provide take-aways you learned from visiting new construction. Then, come up with new ideas sellers can use to enhance the value of their homes if they are going to sell before purchasing new construction or ideas they can use to enhance the value of their home if they are not able to buy new construction at this time. 

 

Topic Summary for Learning Opportunity 

  • Visit one to three new construction sites
  • Use your own video. Video can't be taken by anyone who isn't a member of ActiveRain
  • 1,000 points for every new construction you video and present on ActiveRain
  • 3,000 points extra if this is your first time using your own video
  • If video is not allowed, use 3 - 6 of your own photos
  • 2,000 points for a minimum of 3 new ways home owners can enhance their value

In a nutshell: You may visit up to three new construction sites. Video the sites you visit. It must be your video, not a spouse, or anyone who isn't a member of ActiveRain, or a professional photographer. You get 1,000 points for every new construction site you video.

For example:

1 construction site = 1,000 points

2 construction sites = 2,000 points

3 construction sites - 3,000 points

 

If Video is not allowed, 500 points if you use your own photographs, regardless of quantity.

EXTRAS

3,000 points extra if this is your first time making a video and it is your own video. You only get 3,000 points once, not 3 times for each construction site.

 

1,500 points extra if you get 10 or more people who like your take-aways and they must note that in their comments. 1,500 points maximum.

We have so much new construction in our area. The market is so hot that most sell way before they are finished and we have so few models. Buyes love new homes.

Debbie Reynolds - With low inventory, many are turning to new construction here too. Our problem is they can't build them fast enough and sellers are renting until they are completed. I'm not seeing one stories, just 2 - 3 stories. I'm interested in what is being built in other parts of the country.

We are seeing lots of 2-stories as well, Patricia. There is a shortage of available lots and this is causing prices to rise faster.

Patricia, wow this would really be a challenge, especially for me two things that I am not inclined yet to do:)) one happens to be videos and the other limitation is we have very few new construction because it takes two to three years to get approvals from our nutty building department.... now I am confident Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD  would have an easy time doing this as a challenge, Endre

Debbie Reynolds - the DFW area in TX faces the same issues with shortage of land to build and prices sky rocketing. Those that are building are on average taking 1 1/2 years to build or longer. Larger land sold off by farmers are being gobbled up by developers creating mixed use and more apartments. What was once minimal apartments has mushroomed into multiples. It's crazy!

Endre Barath, Jr. - I have never done video before either. The decision rests with the decisions-makers here on AR and of course your sister Debe Maxwell, CRS. We'll see what they come up with or say. Perhaps, just working on "What's trending in your area and/or isn't," and why not would open up options that would be interesting.

Wow!  I sure like this one Patricia. It's a terrific idea and I'm guessing it would bring some business from buyers - and build relationships with builders too. Both good things.  You sure have it outlined for us in great detail too - hope to see it come to life. Great job.

Hi Patricia

Now THIS is a challenge to share! So much can be learned by participating, not just about new construction but also about videos for those not using them!
