PROVEN HOME SELLING SYSTEM
21 POINT ACTION PLAN
This is 2020, not the 1990s. Marketing your home should never be about just putting a sign on your lawn and perhaps adding your home to MLS and trying a few open houses.
Back in the 1990s real estate was very different, the internet wasn't a key factor in selling a home. We carried thick books around full of different listings. In the 1990s it was standard practice to put a sign on your lawn, hold "Open Houses" and put a home on the MLS. It is still quite common to see agents and some companies still marketing homes for sellers using the tactics of the 1990s. Quite frankly times have changed, marketing methods have changed and buyers know where to look. Without a lot of luck that rarely works in today’s real estate market.
Today you need maximum exposure. Buyers are smart, computer savvy and look everywhere for a home that meets their needs. Do you know that 95% (some studies say it is as high as 97%) of home buyers and 47% of first time buyers spend their time searching online? 76% drive by a home that they found online to check it out, plus 51% bought the home they found online!
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
This means that your agents must have a strong online presence PLUS they have to be hard working agents to succeed. We have a very strong internet presence and can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram and many more sites marketing to potential buyers, to other agents and other companies.
We were one of the first in this area to aggressively use video marketing, long before it became a trend. To date we have placed over 800 real estate videos on YouTube. We use a lot of different social media tools to promote and aggressively market your home- Facebook, Google plus, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and more! Our listings can be found on over 300 different web sites.
Plus we use traditional marketing methods as well such as lawn signs, hold "Open Houses" when necessary etc.
Gone are the days when an agent could put you on MLS and maybe put an ad in a paper for you or put you on a free site. Some "discount companies" still do that. Today, you have to have a strong internet presence or you are missing out on a lot of potential buyers.
For those of you trying to sell on your own, keep in mind that just putting a home on MLS or one company's site, rarely sells your home unless you get lucky. If you don't have an agent that is aggressively marketing your home using a variety of marketing tools, you have not only limited your chance of success but also your chances of getting top dollar for your home.
When we work for you, our objectives are the following:
1. To get as many "qualified buyers" as possible into your home until it is sold.
2. We guarantee that we will communicate with you on a regular basis. You will know what is happening in your market place. Studies show that the number one complaint that sellers have about real estate agents is that once they are listed, they never hear from them. That won't happen with the Beardsley Team.
3. To assist you in negotiating the highest dollar value possible for the sale of your home.
We are proactive agents, not passive ones who wait for the phone to ring. We think that you want more than a sign and just being listed on MLS. We use the latest marketing methods as well as traditional ones and we believe that in today’s tough market we have to aggressively market your home for you. Putting out a sign, holding an Open House and just putting a home on MLS simply isn't good enough anymore.
Our 21 POINT ACTION PLAN works in this tough market.
