Real Estate activity has stayed strong the last 4 weeks with a fair amount of homes still entering the market. Buyers continue to be active as well. Some different price points and locations are moving quicker than others. The market should continue to stay strong until November when the weather starts to change and the holidays tend to take center stage. There is plenty of good market time left for us to aggressively try to sell your home! With this in mind, I thought it would be a great time to share with you just a few of the things that we are doing to make your home stand out from the competition.
Ø Pay Per Click Marketing on Google – this drives our site to the top of the search engines to make sure that your home gets maximum exposure to buyers worldwide.
Ø 1-800 Hotline / Text System – Through our interactive voice response system that is advertised online, on your sign, and in the newspaper, we are able to generate about 2,100 buyer calls a year! This system allows buyers to get information on your home 24/7 with no obligation to talk with an agent, yet provides us with all the buyers contact info so we can effectively follow up and convert that call into a showing on your home.
Ø Networking with other Realtors – Through RE/MAX and the Stark County Association of Realtors we are in consistent contact with the other top agents in the county. 75% of transactions involve more than one Realtor, which means getting your home in front of the right Realtors is crucial. We know and network with the Realtors that have the buyers!
Ø Newspaper Ads – This still is one of the most effective ways to get buyers to call on your home. We are dedicated to having the most visible and attractive ads in the Repository. We have a contract with the Repository for back cover page twice a month, and we are averaging 30-40 calls a week. These are people calling about your home!
Ø The web is where the most activity is at! We promote your home on Realtor.com, Remax.com, MyStarkCountyHome.com, JoseSellsHomes.com, Trulia.com, Zillow.com, all local brokerage sites and many more!
These are just a few of the things that we are doing to make sure your home gets the most exposure. Through our aggressive marketing, we are sure that any serious buyers out there know about your home. Please feel free to call us with any questions or concerns at (330) 649-5540.
