This article right here is the crux of my listing presentations when it comes to the question “What do you do to sell a home?” When 92% of all homebuyers are using the internet as their first source to find a home, it would behoove us as agents to spend most of our time capturing those buyers’ attention.
For sellers, internet marketing is not just a “put on website and wait” strategy. It’s a very active and rather-skilled process that needs a lot of thought and care. Because buyers can now see thousands of homes online at once, “curb appeal” is now on the computer screen, not the street. You only get just a few seconds to make an impression with your online listing to make it stand out. With the myriad of real estate websites out there, making sure your home is presented uniformly across those platforms can be daunting and time consuming. Just one Trulia listing from start to finish can take 30 minutes. Imagine doing it 350 times, which is the number of websites KW syndicates to through our partnerships!
The internet is very powerful but can also be very intimidating when marketing a home. Be sure to hire the right agent who can navigate it to your advantage.
