5 EASY TIPS TO PASS YOUR FLORIDA REAL ESTATE EXAM

Capture

The key to passing your state exam is preparation. Preparation involves working through the key components of every one of the 100 questions on the exam. Let’s go over a few quick testing strategies that will immediately boost your chances of passing.

1. Take your time.
You have three and a half hours to answer the questions, which means there is no need to rush. Just take a deep breath and trust your preparation.

2. Read all the darn questions…2 times.
It’s too easy to skip over key words in the question. Our brain has this nasty habit of filling in the the blanks of sentences when we haven’t even seen every word. For example, did you notice the repeated word “the” in the last sentence? Give yourself a chance of getting the questions right by reading them each 2 times.

3. Read all the darn answers…2 times.
Before choosing an answer – even if you are 100% positive it’s right – read through all the choices. It may be that you have prematurely selected a response that is correct, but there could be another answer that is more correct. If you fail to read through all the answers there’s a chance you may mark the wrong one.

4. Longer is better.
If you come to a question that has you completely stumped, usually the longest choice is the most likely to be correct. This is not a hard rule of thumb, but rather an indicator to go off of when you don’t have any idea what the answer could be.

5. Treat each multiple choice question as 4 true-false questions.
Each multiple choice question will have 4 answers, each of which you should regard as a true-false question. This will help you ensure that you aren’t missing any details when responding to each question.

Hopefully these quick tips help you pass your Florida real estate exam. Remember, you can miss 25 of the 100 questions and still pass the exam. There’s no need to be perfect, just pass.

SEO for New Real Estate Agents

More than ever potential home buyers are starting and continuing their house hunt online.

According to the Real Estate in a Digital Age 2017 Report, more than 75% of home buyers use the internet in their home search (including nearly 100% of Millennials).

As a new agent, if you want to reach these many potential clients online, you need to optimize your website to get the most traffic you can.

Follow these steps to improve your SEO.

SEO for new real estate agents

1. Utilize local keyword phrases

Most home buyers start their research with local keyword phrases like “Fort Myers real estate.”

Although over time you may expand your business to include multiple regions, when you build your website at the start of your career, you’ll want to focus on a single area.

Once you’ve established yourself as a market expert in the first area, you can then expand to target other surrounding areas.

To optimize your website, blog, and articles you should choose search phrases like the following:

  • Fort Myers real estate
  • Fort myers realtor
  • Fort Myers real estate agent
  • Fort Myers homes for sale

The more targeted and specific your website can be, the better.

As a new agent your goal is to capture local internet traffic, not traffic from all over the state or region.

At the start, avoid key phrases such as “Florida real state agent,” since you’ll be too small to compete for that kind of keyword.

Make your website a resource for potential home buyers with relevant blogs, articles, images, and videos that all provide value and are keyword optimized.

2. Write blog posts about premium homes

Although you may list dozens or even hundreds of listings at a time, you will certainly have a select few properties that you really want to sell.

Writing a blog post about one of those properties could do wonders for securing more prospects.

For this kind of blog post, the optimized keyword would be the property’s address. Be sure to include the address in the following places:

  • The meta descriptions
  • The file names of the photos
  • The alt tags on the photos (which you can usually edit once you have uploaded the photo into your blog/website)
  • URL
  • Title

Create about 200-350 words of unique writing that describes the home features using the best practices for home listings along with the standard description.

Note: for other blog posts not targeted for a specific property, there is no perfect number of words. However, longer content tends to be more helpful for users, and will therefore be rewarded more in Google’s search rankings.

You will also want to get as many backlinks from trusted websites as you can.

3. Off page SEO

You can establish authority in Google’s algorithm by submitting your website and business info to directories such as the Better Business Bureau, Yellowbook.com, Local.com, YP.com, and more.

Also, be sure to claim your business on Google (don’t forget about Yahoo and Bing, which both receive more traffic than most people realize).

By claiming your business, Google will see you as a trusted website, meaning they’ll put your site in front of more potential clients.

Get on the following sites:

  • Trulia
  • Zillow
  • Redfin.
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Pinterest (with images of your listings)
  • Youtube (with video tours of listings, which can be huge for gaining traffic)
  • Instagram (with quality images of homes)

Your website doesn’t have to be perfect: the main point is getting started. Creating quality content consistently is the best and most efficient way to be found.

Perhaps you don’t have any skills with video creation but you enjoy writing—then write incredible content. Maybe you have excellent photos—utilize them. Anything you can do to create valuable content will help you sell homes.
