The big national news the week of the 11th of February, 2008 was the phenomenal growth of the Latino population. The Census Bureau release figures that show the U.S. population grew by 2.8 million between July 1, 2004, and July 1, 2005. The Census Report says Hispanics accounted for 1.3 million of that increase.
The Population Resource Center cites statistics showing the average Hispanic woman will have three children in her lifetime; it's 1.8% for non-Hispanic whites. This means Hispanics will makeup a large percentage of the population in years to come.
Think about this if you are Seller of real estate in an area that has a large Hispanic population it is likely there are a high number of Spanish speaking buyers that could be interested in your home, business or land. In the past the only way these people could communicate was to have interpreters. How will you as a Seller attract Spanish speaking buyers that normally would not call on your home?
In 1997 I created the Nation's first know bi-lingual hotline. The system has now been improved to allow even more features. Full color fliers are placed in an information box in front of a home and a toll-free number can be dialed that offers the following:
- Callers can listen to listing information in English or Spanish
- Callers can have listing information automatically faxed to them
- Callers can leave a message requesting a showing or more information
- Callers can be connected to my cell directly from the toll free number
This toll-free number can be placed on color fliers as mentioned above, signs and any print advertising.
Think about it...if the Latino population continues to grow as anticipated, it makes more sense than ever to have some kind of system to attract those potentional buyers to call on your property.
For more information dial my toll free numer, 1-800-316-6915 and press 1 for English or 2 for Spanish and then zero (0) to be connected to me direclty.
