Marketing homes is one of my favorite aspects of real estate! Gone are the days of putting an ad in the paper, hosting a couple open houses, and bam – it’s sold! So, what’s the strategy, and where are the buyers? They are online! In fact 45% of home buyers find the house they buy on the internet. But, “online” is so vague, and having your home marketed on the internet is just one piece of the overall puzzle in my strategy of marketing your home. Here’s some other ways your home will be marketed with me:
Home staging is a valuable service that helps you prepare your home to make the best first impression possible. I offer a complementary consultation with a trusted home stager for all clients listing their home with me.
Why would bad photos of a property ever be acceptable? Many agents take their own photos, and sometimes it can show. In fact, there is a website devoted to showcasing bad real estate photography! If you’d like some laughs, check out this site. I hire a professional photographer for my listings to ensure that your home is presented well to potential buyers. This is one of the perks of working with me!
YouTube has been a tool I’ve used for years to help market homes. I personally record a video tour of your home, which is promoted on multiple social media outlets and the LivingInDuluth.com blog and with a YouTube sign in the front yard, which increases views as well.
social media & other WEBSITES
When it comes to the internet, being part of Remax.com and Results.net has big advantages, and that’s just one aspect of internet marketing. When you list your home with me, your listing is automatically distributed to dozens of home search websites, including top sites like Zillow and Realtor.com. In addition to this, I use social media websites to harness the power of the web in your favor. I post listings on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Google MyBusiness, and YouTube, as well as here on my own website and blog.
