Ohio’s housing market finished its busiest year since 2005 even though sales slowed at the end due to winter conditions. The number of purchases was up 7.5% from last year according to the Ohio Association of Realtors. The average home price rose 4.8% over the prior year. The two causes of concern going into the new year are supply shortages and the increased house prices. There aren’t enough houses on the market to meet the strong demand, and will only be solved when more houses are put on the market.
One of the realtors in Ohio facing the current real estate market is Tammy Mazzocco. Tammy began her career as a secretary at The Edwards Realty Company. Tammy Mazzocco went on to work at Scotland Yard Condominiums in management for seven years. In 1995 she obtained her real estate license and in 2000 started working as a real estate agent for Re/Max Judy Gang & Associates. Ever since she has been selling homes in Central Ohio including the counties of Deleware, Fairfield, Franklin, and Licking.
In an interview with ideamensch Tammy Mazzocco discussed her career and her thoughts on the issues that exist in real estate. One of the developments she likes the best is the development of lead companies that contact potential clients and then are able to switch the calls of interested people straight to her. Once she’s able to make talk to them she’s more likely to be able to set an in-person appointment, and one she’s talked to them face to face she’s more likely to get a sale. Another way to achieve sales that Tammy Mazzocco reveals is to leave gift baskets or the like as well as information at fire stations and school teacher lounges. You can ask if you can come back once a month fill up the baskets and refill your informational fliers.
