10 Tips and Practices to Ensure a Smooth Running Computer

One of the key features you should look for when choosing a real estate office is the training and support that you will receive. At our office each year we put on a fun, informative class called Success Club. This year we are focused on the tools of our trade. Here is a quick list of “10 Tips and Practices to Ensure a Smooth Running Computer”

10 Tips and Practices to Ensure a Smooth Running Computer

  1. Start everyday with a fresh machine
  2. Always have antivirus and ensure it is up to date.
  3. Do monthly maintenance
    1.      Ccleaner – PC
    2.   IBoostUp – Mac
  4. Don’t get into gaming or crazy surfing….remember this is your business. Crazy surfing will pick up cookies that will slow your machine down.
  5. Keep your desktop free of clutter
  6. Update your software, security, patches
  7. Keep your hard drive below 80% full
    1. Delete stuff you don’t need
    2. shift pictures to the cloud
  8. Back up to a local hard drive
  9. Back up to the cloud
  10. Password protect your computer

Bonus:

Use Paypal instead of sharing your credit card information with many websites.

CNET is a good source for reviews and downloads of hardware and software

Use password management software

Market uptick means lost buying power and lost opportunity for buyers

We are in a market in which the buyer who wants to wait…to save up a little more money…..cannot save enough, fast enough. Two scenarios that I’m covering at our weekly office meeting at John L. Scott in Poulsbo.

Just this month a buyers buying power has gone down by $31,000 just because of the jump in interest rates.

Kitsap County real estate is picking up. Poulsbo, Bainbridge Island and Silverdale are all markets that are seeing a reduction in inventory and multiple offer situations on newly listed homes. Buyers today need to be ready to make an offer when they find a home they like.
