This is a great question Alisa! Social marketing is key!
There are at least eight great social marketing tools that are really essential for real estate agents who want to reach out and communicate with prospects. For our clients, we always set them up â€“ at the very least â€“ with these eight tools: a blog (integrated with the agentâ€™s website); Facebook; Twitter; YouTube; Scribd; Flickr; Digg; and OnlyWire.
In social marketing, the more content (blog text, videos, photos, comments) you push out to the world â€“ the more you engage with other people â€“ the more leads youâ€™ll generate and clients youâ€™ll convert.
The average real estate agent closes 2 deals a month. But the real estate agent who markets herself to stand out from the crowd can far out-do that average â€“ indeed, make a great living as a real estate agent (even in todayâ€™s economy!).

Delaware does not keep an electronic record of homes in Foreclosure but as was stated by Diane, you can purchase a list of homes to be auctioned by the Sheriff (Sheriff sales occur the 2nd Tuesday of the month). Also, the local newspaper usually posts the homes in the classified ads within two weeks of the sale. Here is a site that does give you access to foreclosed homes by city and state without cost to you:
You also can contact a Realtor in the area to get lists of distressed properties (short sales, bank owned, HUD owned, etc.) and work with them to help you purchase such a property. I keep lists updated by city for my clients. I hope this helps. Don't hesitate to contact me with any further questions.......................chris... more
