This is a great idea. We know most of the oder development but my team will be visiting some of newer developments next week.
Sure do and I remind myself and others...I am licensed to practice in the entire State too
Sometimes, but there are so many it's hard to visit them all.
I cover 4 counties because we go where the buyer client needs to go. I know most of it, because I have put in the time and effort to learn it.
When we moved to central florida, I spent months driving, visiting , and learning communities...without a GPS. Mike says you can't learn the streets if you depend on a GPS...thats true.
To expand your knowledge, you have to get out of your comfort zone.

I definitely have not sold in every area, so I tend to farm in the areas that I know.
Preview before showings for sure
If I’m going to be in an area I don’t typically work I may drive through or preview just to broaden my awareness of that part of town.
Yes, I always visit developments that I haven't seen before in my area, so I am familiar with them.
quite often as there are new developments popping up constantly... ToyRUs is going to be KB Homes. Mobile park to be converted by Puite homes etc,
Yes. There are plenty I have not shown in or sold in still. The more I kow the better
In comparison to your area Erie is small town, but there are still a few areas I have not been too. Like any area there are areas where you DON'T want to list or show for safety reasons. Thanks for the Q David Barr
We've shown or listed at so many, but in our travels if we've missed a few, I will research it and find out why it wasn't on my radar.
I showed yesterday in a neighborhood that I have not been in for years, kinda nice!
Constantly broadening the horizons!
I cover such a wide territory in two states and we have so many subdivisions, it's impossible to do this.
I find it interesting to drive through neighborhoods are subdivisions I have not driven through before.
Yes, I think it is good practice to keep learning the neighborhoods in my market.
I try to at least drive through them and take a few photos so I am aware of styles and neighborhood amentities. If I have a buyer for the neighborhood I would visit the homes.
I always like to expand my horizons.
I visit all of the above, to show homes that the buyer wants to see, but have not listed or sold in them all. I probably haven't shown houses in all of them either, but I'm working on it as best I can.
Yes, we do, as there are many neighborhoods that I do not know David Barr! Currently we are just previewing new homes on the market in our niche, though once a week at Weekly Staff Meetings we go on Home Tours and they are in areas that I have never showed, listed, nor know my way around. They are not in the town where we live!
Yes .. and I know there are still many I do not know intimately.
I live in a small town. I have my town and the neighboring small towns covered.
Within my service area, yes. I've lived here 13 years, still have not discovered all of San Diego .
I preview lots of homes that I never been in that area before.
If I am in the area and not pushed for time
I do for area familiarization.
Always good to scout out what is out there.
I don't visit unless I have a reason to be there.
For the most partI have shown homes in the seven couty area the MLS encompasses but most is on the East side of Rochester.
I've been all over Albuquerque and Rio Rancho NM for the past 16+ years and still haven't seen it all.
We would if we would be interested in marketing in that particular locale. A
well I am one of those small town girls and have been doing this for 24 years now, so I'm not sure there is a single neighborhood left where I haven't had a listing or made a sale. Can't think of one. There is a condo building I have not sold a unit in, but I have been there and am familiar with it.
