How I Market Your Home
First and foremost, we'll meet and establish your goals. Then I'll share my marketing strategy to get your home sold for the best price in the shortest amount of time with you. I'll explain the 3 primary factors that influence whether or not your house will sell quickly. And, we'll discuss how I will market your home using methods other than the internet. YES, there's more to marketing than just showing a home on the MLS.
That being said, let’s cut through the hype you may be seeing about internet marketing of Northern Colorado real estate. Sure, every agent worth its salt has a website. And, my website is better than most in presenting my Seller listings to showcase them to their greatest potential. And, I'm really good at all of that SEO, Search Engine Optimization, stuff. That’s the stuff I do on my site to get as high in search engine results as possible to get the most in search engine visitor traffic.
However, hyping up this SEO and site traffic is really ignoring the reality of the internet and any single website’s visibility; unless you’re Yahoo or Google. There is no single real estate website that’s likely to enjoy more than a single digit percentage of searches performed by Buyers looking for local properties. That’s because there are hundreds, or thousands, of real estate sites and they’re all fighting for searchers, but these searchers are also using a half dozen search engines, or other resources, to locate real estate in our area.
Why tell you this? I want you to learn about the power of “syndication,” and why I spend significant resources, time, and effort in syndicating your listing information to a great many real estate websites much larger and more heavily visited than any local real estate websites. I have systems in place to have your listing on dozens of websites, including Yahoo, Trulia, Zillow, and others, and within days of your listing going live.
So, although I'm getting great search engine exposure, I'm not relying on it to be my only resource to sell your homuse through online marketing. Each of those sites to which I syndicate your listing will have links back to the original and complete listing at my website. It’s there that I shine in marketing your property once I’ve attracted visitors from these other sites.
- I begin by having a full suite of professional HD images taken of your house. These images will showcase your property and are critical to internet marketing. Surveys prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Buyers value high quality images more than any other feature of real estate listings.
- Virtual tours when appropriate are created for your property. Some properties are better marketed with still photographs, others with a slide show of stills. I’ll work with you to produce the very best marketing approach for your property.
- I provide descriptively written text and thorough information fields to bring every facet of your property to the prospective Buyer.
- Once a Buyer gets to my site from these many conduits, I don’t just let them look and leave. I offer showings and other special information about the market and your property in exchange for their contact information. If I can get into direct contact with them, it’s going to increase my chances of selling your property to them.
I get a great deal of our listing business from referrals by our satisfied Sellers, so don’t hesitate, let me get started in helping you today!
