Great Question! With over 80% of potential Home Buyers using the internet as a source during their home search, it is imperative that you work with a professional Realtor® with a prominent internet/website presence....not just a website that a company/broker provides that looks "like everyone else's in the office". The design of a website many times determines where it shows up on search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing...etc.,the place consumers go to find their information.
The ability for the owner of the website to prgram each page for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) makes a huge difference in the ability to be seen on the first page of the "Search Results, a critical placement for any website.Take a look at a popular "Search Phrase" on any search engine. For example, go to Google (or any other search engine on the interent) and enter the search phrase "Williamson County Real Estate". The "Results Page" shows the most popular and best "optimized" websites. You should always talk with a Realtor® that has a website on Page One of a "Results" page. Those Realtors® are the ones who have the most traffic/visitors to their websites 24 hours a day/7 days a week. This is incredibly powerful marketing in today's market. Marketing and the ability to sell your home is a "numbers" game, and the ability for potential buyers to see your home on the internet at all hours of a day is sometimes as valuable as having a scheduled "showing" on your house by a Realtor®, or as powerful as a Sunday Open House without even having to take the time and trouble to leave your home!
Remember This...Ask any Realtor® you may talk with to sell your home if they have ever SOLD a home directly from an interent showing/visibility. I have! I recevied a FULL PRICE contract for a house I had listed for sale before the buyer even walked in the door for an initial look! It does happen, and your Realtor® needs to understand and know how to handle internet real estate buyers.
