If you as a real estate professional, or as a potential client were looking for a market niche, could you recognize it by it's "Face"??

How would it appear, and how do real estate market NICHES work?-
First Step: To prepare for the series of posts on this subject, we've been taking a poll-asking
a) if clients began looking
for properties they desired
with broad criteria in mind, and
b) if they soon began to get a specific leaning toward neighborhoods
and properties that attracted them.
Poll results showed that both questions were answered in the affirmative.
Next Step-Broker selection.
That's good news for us here in Asheville, NC. since our Firm specializes in eco-friendly properties here. We are "green buyers' brokers" and service a well-defined niche market. And this is where our outreach at Localism.com comes in.
We love Localism because it has helped us to establish our "local expert" presence as well as the sustainable market we are targeting. At that point of entry it is easy for clients to find us.
Too, our well-defined niche works in tandem with Active Rain to communicate with our special audience. We consistently attempt to deliver compelling and focused information via posts on our blogs in the real estate web 2.0 environment.
How can you stand out from the crowd?" The answer - follow your passion, and then weave it into a tapestry of possibility....especially in a difficult real estate market, a niche, and even better, interconnecting niches can work for you to create healthy opportunities.
