On January 29th ARTI Academics hosted the Real Estate Economic Forecast. Moderated by Dr. Amanda Wickra, Ed.D., Director of Education at ARTI Academics, and featuring keynote speakers Neil Walter, CFA, and Jon Walter, MBA. The event was live broadcasted over Facebook and Zoom. This free public event, sponsored by ERA Brokers, NAI Excel, and NAI Vegas drew an attendance of approximately 500 people.
Neil Walter and Jon Walter provided insight on key trends that are moving commercial and residential markets in Southern Nevada, Southern Utah, and the Wasatch Front. Analysis of the decisions that move real estate prices suggest that in most cases, real estate prices will continue to increase in the near term. Population growth, lower interest rates, housing shortage, increasing construction costs, and additional economic stimulus are significant drivers of current market conditions. Looking to the future, they recommend watching changes in government policies in response to the pandemic, the migration from urban to rural, and new construction.
ERA Brokers, NAI Excel, and NAI Vegas published their annual research reports. The 2021 Residential Review and 2021 Commercial Real Estate Outlook, are publicly available at www.erabrokers.com, www.naiexcel.com, and www.naivegas.com.

Learn what skills are needed to be successful in the real estate industry.
As real estate agents, we must continuously enhance and develop our skill sets. ARTI Academics often gets the question, “what skills do I need to be a successful real estate agent?” There are various sets of skills that will position you to be a successful real estate agent, such as communication, collaboration, time management, marketing, advanced knowledge of market conditions, and adaptability (and a great sense of humor).
Being able to convey important information to clients, real estate agents, and other individuals in a real estate transaction is critical. As the agent, your relied upon to be level-headed and informed about the sale that you’re working on. The difference between a deal getting done or not getting done may be correlated with how the agent listens to the client and then communicates information between the parties. Individuals who use poor grammar, misguided phrases, and are unresponsive should be cautioned about getting into the real estate business.
Real estate is a team business. You will be working together with various parties, including title officers, lenders, home inspectors, 3rd party intermediaries, attorneys, and more to ensure that the deal goes smoothly. A team mindset is crucial to ensuring the real estate transaction makes it past the closing line.
Utilizing good time management is critical to your success. You will be managing multiple tasks at once and there are many items that can take up your time but do not keep you productive. Utilizing time blocking, coming into the office, and building relationships will help you best find what is most important to running and growing your business.
You don’t have to have good marketing skills to be an excellent real estate agent, but if you aren’t a marketing expert then you better work with a real estate brokerage that has a marketing team behind them and can deliver for your clients’ needs. If you are an expert marketer, you may be best suited to start a marketing agency instead of a real estate career.
Helping buyers and sellers with pricing recommendations is something you are depended upon to do. This includes understanding and analyzing market data and trends as well as helping clients make decisions that are in their best interest.
Real estate is an ever-evolving industry. It is important that you are open to new ways of doing business and changing your skillset to meet the needs of buyers and sellers.
At ARTI Academics, our team designs classes based on the skills you will need to succeed in the real estate market. We collaborate with industry professionals to learn from their experiences. Additionally, the instructors will provide forward-thinking and diverse insights to help you launch a successful real estate career. Please visit ARTI academics and develop your skill sets by enrolling in our classes or certificates.
