Advanced Home Marketing

    It seems like every time I sit down with a new seller and go over all of the things I do to market a home – the response is the same.

    “Whoa.”

    A comprehensive marketing plan is key to selling properties in today’s market.  Not only are we in a challenging market, but buyers have more information at their fingertips than ever before. Google alone has a vast majority of data, not to mention comparative sites such as Google or Trulia which provide historical information and graphical neighborhood information at the touch of a finger.

    The truth of the matter is -over 82% of new home buyers start their search online (according to the NAR).  A staggering statistic indeed.  What does that really mean?

    Like anything (me included) when I want something the first thing I do is pull up my internet browser and Google it, maybe it’s “Spokane Homes For Sale,” or “Spokane Short Sales.” nevertheless hundreds of agent sites appear.   Perhaps a paid advertisement for Trulia or Realtor.com appear.  A buyer selects a site and begins their search.

    VERY FEW buyers I’ve worked with start the old fashioned way – hopping in the car and driving around, or calling up the neighborhood Realtor and setting up a time to view some listings.  Most buyers are active buyers.

    How do you market your home to the information savvy buyer?  Easy enough to say – with loads of information, pictures & data.  The information consumer thrives on information and with so much information at everyone’s fingertips – they almost cannot get enough.

    Listings need to be present in internet, print and visual (virtual tour etc.) and link centrally to a repository of listing data and resources to collect more data.

    My listings are syndicated to over 60 websites and have exposure internationally.  I have worked with a buyer from Hong Kong who found me online.  I also have agressive print and face to face advertising mechanisms giving a well rounded and effective marketing campaign for your home.
