The Key to Marketing your Home
Getting the best price for your home isn’t just about your home’s individual features. Another key factor in selling a home quickly and profitably is the quality of marketing and exposure your home receives. Our professional Keller Williams real estate agents at the Blaser Yoakum Team in Southlake, TX, understand exactly how marketing can help get you the best offer on your home.
Internet marketing is more important than ever to the residential real estate market. According to the National Association of Realtors, 98% of buyers start their home search online; therefore it’s crucial that your home for sale listing has a strong web presence. This means much more than just having your home for sale posted in MLS system or appearing on a few different websites.
For example, today’s home buyers are now searching for homes for sale on:
One of the questions you should be asking when interviewing prospective listing agents is, “What is your Internet marketing strategy?” Make sure it’s an aggressive one!
Networking with Family & Friends to Sell Your Home
Another great way you can market your home for sale is through an extended network of friends, family, and neighbors. Just Listed Postcards are a great way to get the news out to your neighborhood. They often displays images of the property, some of its special features, and the address. Often, neighbors know of people looking to move into your area, and they have a vested interest in your home selling quickly because it affects their home’s value as well.
Having a single property website can be another great way to market your home. It’s an easy way to share with your friends and family the fact that you are selling your home.
Networking with other Realtors
Last but not least, never underestimate the power of other Realtors! Almost 90% of buyers use an agent when buying a home. The Multiple Listing Service (MLS), open houses, and word-of-mouth are successful ways to market residential listings. It’s important to find a REALTOR® who is plugged in to the real estate community and able to get the word out to other agents that your home is for sale. The fact is, selling a home in today’s market is hard work, so the more diversified your approach to marketing a home for sale, the better!
