listing: Are You Making an Impact in Your Listing With Words? - 09/21/07 12:30 PM
As a marketer (yes, we are, or should be), it is important to understand the impact of words in your listings so you may create the desired impression, convey essential information accurately, and encourage the reader to take action and come see the house.
The impact you create from words can be either positive or negative, and might NOT be what you intend. So a careful review of what is written, and an objective focus on the impact that may be created, will let you know if the desired effect is likely to be achieved.
Appealing to the emotions of the … (34 comments)

listing: Getting to Know You, Getting to Know All About You (Part 2 - Pre-Listing Package) - 06/25/07 02:00 AM
Now that you have gotten to know the prospective seller a bit, another important piece of this process before the actual meeting, and one in which you have the opportunity to showcase yourself and provide a competitive advantage, is to provide the prospect with a pre-listing package.
A pre-listing package gives you a chance to share information (so they get to know YOU), provide an overview of services, tease them with how you market, or whatever else you feel may address questions (and potential objections) the seller may have in advance. Drop it off at the house, or overnight it, depending on … (34 comments)

listing: Looking for a Good Listing Agent? - 12/31/06 04:22 AM
If you are a serious seller and are setting out to hire a good listing agent, I would encourage you to consider the following. Hiring the right person will help you avoid the things I discussed in my earlier posts (Part 1, Part 2), and probably avoid a long drawn-out sale...or worse, having your home rejected by the market.
Some suggestions:
•·        A good listing agent is not the agent who promises a particular price or the highest list price (don't forget - the market determines the sales price, not you or the agent)
•·        Look for evidence of a strong marketing plan, … (2 comments)
