Areas of Expertise
In 1995, just 2% of home buyers used the Internet to look for a home. Last year, 77% of home shoppers went house-hunting online, and nearly one-fourth of buyers first found the property they bought on the Internet, according to the National Association of Realtors. Traffic on real estate websites jumped 8% in the past year - double the growth rate of Internet traffic overall, according to comScore Media Metrix.
According to the National Association of Realtors, approximately 80% of all U.S. homes are sold through Realtors using the MLS and homes listed on the MLS average net proceeds of 7% higher than homes sold for sale by owner.
Your property will be listed on www.realtor.com, www.lauralei.net and other real estate websites. These internet listings will give you national exposure to out-of-state homebuyers. Since many of your potential buyers will be from outside your local area, this exposure can be a vital component in selling your home quickly and for the best price. The independent websites, realtor.com and homes.com, will obtain your listing directly from the MLS. Keep in mind that they pick up whatever they wish from your MLS listing to publish on their websites. Thus, we have no control over these independent websites and we cannot change or edit their content.
Laura is the best!
"I had my house on the market with another company for two months and only had one prospect. I decided to list the house with Laura, and the very same day we began getting bites, she even showed the house and sent out postcards, emails and took pictures the first day! The house sold within a week! She is very organized and gets the job done right! I would recommend her and use her again!" Margie Breeding
