 Marketing Your Property for Sale

Marketing your house for sale means
More than just putting it on MLS!


Put Simply: houses that are poorly marketed may not achieve top value.
In other words, without the best exposure, you don't get the best price.
There is more to marketing your house for sale than putting it up on MLS.
You are paying for real estate services and as a seller you deserve the best.
The First Week after Listing your House for Sale is Critical

By the time a typical buyer is ready to make an offer, they will have seen all existing properties for sale in your neeighbourhood.

Most buyers know how much they can afford, where they want to live, what they must have in a home and what they can live without.

Since they have been monitoring your neighbourhood and have a good idea of sale prices and are aware of the increase of housing inventory, they are watching to see the new listings that come up for sale.

That's why the first week after listing your property for sale is the most ctitical: the number of prepared buyers who see your house will be at it's peek.

 

Not only is my website designed to attract and engage today's buyers, it has numerous behind the scenes software elements that will help me sell your house.

With High Quality Photos, Virtual Tours, Neighbourhood information and google mapping, nothing matches the effectiveness of the marketing power of my site

 

Buyers Want:

More Information:
Buyers are trying to make an informed decision about a major purchase, so instead of holding back information about a property, I deliver as much information as possible.
My listings always include Google mapping with satellite imagery, Virtual Tours and many other features to showcase your property.

More Photos:
Many independent studies show that better listings with more photos attract more visitors, they keep looking at your house longer, and they generate more quality buyers.

I understand the power of quality photographs, and include as many photos as possible to attract attention to your listing.
 

My Marketing Plan

Traditional and Internet Marketing

A combination of both Traditional and Internet Marketing is the most effective way to achieve the Best Market Exposure for your listing.

92% of Buyers start their Real Estate Search Online, they want to learn about Neighborhoods and Communities, to view property information and to view lots of photos, Virtual Tours, use interactive maps and then contact a real estate agent.

 

 RE/MAX Yard Sign

A Real Estate For Sale Sign is one of the most traditional property marketing tools.
It lets lets your neighbours and regular visitors to your community know that your house is for sale, and how to get in touch with me.

It also directs potential buyers to my website where your property listing, virtual tour and pictures are accessible round the clock.

I will install on your property my double posted RE/MAX sign with my contact information and a virtual tour rider with my website address so potential buyers may view the virtual tour.

 

The Multiple Listing Service ( MLS ) - Realtor.ca

The Multiple Listing Service exposes your property to professional real estate agents with thousands of potential buyers.

I will create a thorough and accurate Listing with multiple pictures, text and details of your property offered for sale and enter it to our Realtor (Matrix) website.

Your listing on MLS will have a link to my website where buyers can few more pictures and more information on your property.

 Quality Photography

Photography is very important when selling a house, and the greatest of care will be taken when shooting pictures of your property, both the interior and exterior.
These pictures will be used in many marketing applications.

So many times there are beautiful houses on the market with poor photos, and no matter how spectacular your house is, if you have poor quality pictures a buyer might eliminate your house without ever stepping onto the property.

 Marketing Property Binder and Feature Sheets

To keep your listing at the forefront of a potential buyer's mind, the professional presentation of your house needs to continue long after the door has been locked and the buyer has left your house.

When buyers are choosing amongst several houses the feature sheet is a indispensable selling tool.

I will create a Marketing Property Binder that contains a detailed written description of your house and it's features and upgrades that might not have been noticed or may not be visible during the showing to the average buyer, this is especially helpful in noting recent mechanical upgrades and quality finishes.

This binder will be prominently displayed in your kitchen or dining room to be used by buyers and agents showing your property.

 Open House ( If Desired )

Having an Open House is one of the methods of attracting potential buyers to your real estate listing.
Some buyers feel more comfortable feel more comfortable attending a open house first rather than contacting a realtor initially.

If you decide that you would like to have an open house then the date and time will be scheduled at your convenience.
 

 Wren and Open House Ads

A ad will be placed in The Winnipeg Real Estate News (WREN) under the approperiate neighbourhood section. Also if we agree to have an open house another ad will be place in the WREN in the open house section under the approperiate neighbourhood section.

The ads will have also have my contact information and my website address for buyers to view more pictures, the virtual tour, area maps and more detailed information on your property listed for sale.

Syndication and Data Distribution = Massive Exposure for your Property
