The Bank of Canada announced today that it will not be changing its overnight rate. Therefore the Prime lending rate remains at 3.00%.

The global economy is still experiencing a widespread slowing of activities. Economic growth in the US is progressing at a gradual pace. Europe is in a recession and recent indicators point to a continued contraction. In China, and other emerging economies, growth has slowed somewhat more than expected..

Notwithstanding the slower global momentum, prices for oil and other commodities produced by Canada have, on average, increased in recent months.

 

Economic growth, in Canada, is still expected to pick up and return to full capacity by 2013. Housing activity is expected to decline from historically high levels, while household debt is expected to rise further. Core inflation has been lower than expected and projected to rise gradually over coming quarters.

With rates remaining the same, we are continuing to recommend that clients stay in their variable rate mortgages. The date of the Bank of Canada's next announcement is scheduled for December 4 2012.

Understanding Seller’s Rights Reserved (SRR)


What is SRR? A brokerage may agree to permit a seller client to market their property themselves at the same time as it is listed for sale with the brokerage on the board’s MLS® System.


Typically, remuneration will not be owed to the brokerage if the property is sold due to the seller’s own efforts. If this is the  case, most board rules state that “SRR” must be shown in the commission code field or disclosed in some other manner.


So often I see this NOT used properly.   YES, as a SELLER if you have your own buyer this may be the way to proceed, and still have your REALTOR list the home on the MLS and make all attempts to sell the home as well.


NOTE:  I've always added a time limit on something like this or excluded the potential buyer if they happen to come back into the situation and want to buy the home.

Smile when you're on the phone

All employees who have phone time with your customers must be happy, or they have to be removed. A smile can be "felt and heard" even through e-mail or phone lines. Ask your employees to look in a mirror to see how they look when they are on the phone speaking to customers.

 

Ask your clients what they want

Then give it to them, if it's in your power to do so. Marketing becomes easy when you care enough to ask how you can serve people. Do surveys, hold contests, simply ask and pay very close attention to the responses you receive.

 

If someone wants their money back, return it cheerfully

Then ask if you can do anything else to make it right. One refund done well could produce 10 or more positive referrals. How many times have you been disappointed with a product, but happy with the customer service you received when you sought a return or refund? If you make it easy for unhappy customers to be satisfied, chances are, they'll be back.

 

Take customer loyalty seriously

Give bonuses, offer free shipping and do unexpected "nice" things. When a client says they are in a hurry, offer them upgraded shipping at no cost. Add a personalized card, follow up on purchases, and make your customers feel special. Closeness matters, especially in the digital marketplace.

 

Thank your customers for their business

Make sure they know that you value their business. Don't take it for granted. Train your staff to always thank your customers for doing business with you.

 

Build community with your clients

Make them feel as though they have joined a family that cares enough to give them excellent service. Keep them involved with your business, and your business "top of mind" with e-mail messages, postcards and announcements, all as a way of saying, "we appreciate you."

One of the biggest paybacks of loving your customer is how it affects your team as a whole, your company mission and how it sets you apart in a marketplace where far too many firms focus only on the sale and not on the happiness of the consumer.

 

Love your customers. It makes all the difference in the world.
