NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS FACT: AROUND 90% OF ALL HOME BUYERS START THEIR SEARCH ONLINE
In the digital age, the way people search for homes has dramatically changed. According to the National Association of Realtors, around 90% of all home buyers start their search online. This shift towards online home searching underscores the importance of having a strong online presence when selling your home.
THE IMPORTANCE OF ONLINE VISIBILITY
As a Realtor, I understand the power of the internet in the home buying process. If you’re selling your home, it’s crucial to have it visible online where potential buyers are looking. Our agency has a network of hundreds of websites where we list your property, including OrsonHillRealty.com and SWFloridaHomes4Sale.com. These websites are designed to maximize exposure and reach a wide audience of potential buyers, both locally and nationally.
Some real estate agents spend their marketing budget on advertising in local magazines, hoping that you’ll see their name. However, this approach may not be as effective as it once was. A potential home buyer in California, for example, may never have heard of a local agent in the Denver foothills. That’s why I focus my marketing efforts online, where I can reach a broader audience and connect with buyers who are actively searching for homes.
HOW I MARKET YOUR HOME ONLINE
When you choose to work with me, I’ll explain how I will market your home to potential buyers. I use a variety of online marketing strategies to showcase your property and attract interested buyers. These strategies include:
- Listing your home on popular real estate websites: I list your property on hundreds of websites, including OrsonHillRealty.com and SWFloridaHomes4Sale.com. These websites are frequented by home buyers and provide extensive exposure for your listing.
- Using high-quality photos and virtual tours: High-quality photos and virtual tours are essential for online listings. They allow potential buyers to get a feel for your home before they even step foot inside.
- Leveraging social media: I use social media platforms to promote your listing and reach a larger audience. This includes posting your listing on Facebook, Instagram, and other popular platforms.
- Search engine optimization (SEO): I use SEO strategies to ensure that your listing appears in search results when potential buyers search for homes in your area.
- Targeted online advertising: I use targeted online advertising to reach potential buyers who are likely to be interested in your home based on their online behavior.
- And a bunch more
By leveraging these online marketing strategies, I aim to reach the 90% of home buyers who start their search online. I spend my marketing dollars wisely to ensure that your home gets the visibility it deserves. If you’re considering selling your home, I would love the opportunity to discuss how I can help you reach potential buyers. Let’s get together and talk about how I can market your home effectively in the digital age.
If you are selling your home isn’t it best to have it visible online? Our agency has a network of hundreds of websites we populate your listing through, including this one. All those real estate agents that advertise in local mags are just doing that so you see their name. Their name is not important if the prospective home buyer is in California and has never heard of them before. I spend my marketing dollars much more wisely. I would like to get together with you and let you know how I will market your home to potential home buyers.
