If you are considering selling your home, you must be aware of the following:
Not all listing agents incorporate the same techniques and the ones that sell more homes, have the experience and know-how to do so. Internet marketing strategies are essential in today's home buying process because 98% of home buyers start their search online. Luckily our website shows 30% more ACTIVE homes than other sites and portals such as Zillow and Trulia.
With so many homes from which to choose, buyers can easily find what they need without resorting to searching newspaper and magazine ads or attending open houses. Buyers start their search from the comfort of their current homes, not in real estate offices. Because of this proper marketing is critical! Since buyers view less properties and really only see ones that match their search criteria, it's important that your home be showcased to meet as many search parameters as possible and that your pictures be exemplary so YOUR home stands out!
Did you know that some home buyers even place offers without physically seeing a home first? The world is changing and your listing agent needs to actively market to potential buyers! Listing your home in Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com portals is not the answer to getting your home sold. The answers lies in having a proactive agent - one who already has prospective buyers looking for a home like yours! Rather than "hoping" your home sells, the right listing agent will pursue buyers to make SURE your home sells!
Adding cost-effective amenities and improving the general cleanliness and condition of the home is what we call “Staging.” The way we live in a Home and sell a House are two different things. When a seller stages their home, one of two things happens:
Our website, StLouisHomeSeekers.com brings you buyers. What's more the buyers who visit our site already know what they want, making it easy to match them to YOUR home. Once we target the right buyers, we schedule buyer previews and communicate with each home seeker.
