Selling Your Home!

Every Home in the Alexandria MN Lakes Area is different and as a result the marketing plan for your home needs to be customized. Here are a few of the strategies that are working well in the Alexandria MN Lakes Area for residential and lake homes. It is all about attracting as many potential home buyers as possible. 

1. For Sale signs will be placed in the front yard as signs are still one of the best ways to attract qualified buyers. Edina Realty red and white yard signs have been displayed in the Alexandria area for years and home buyers that find and call as a result of a Edina Realty yard sign have already seen your property and know it's in a neighborhood they are interested in.

2. Marketing to the internet is becoming the most popular way to find real estate for sale as internet home buyers want to search for properties in the convenience of their own home. Home buyers that search for homes on the internet will buy a home they saw on the internet 86% of the time. Internet home buyers also want a search engine that is fast and complete. That is why more internet home buyers look to Edina Realty Agents web sites then ever before.

3. Open houses are a key to selling homes. The key is to leverage as many potential home buyers as possible to walk through the home in the shortest amount of time. Those potential home buyers may not buy the home, but they may know someone that is looking for that exact home. Open houses will be advertised in the local newspaper to help draw those potential buyers in, but I also use the power of the internet to promote open houses. 

4. Properties are listed in the Northstar or the Twin Cities MLS along with the Alexandria MLS system. Not only can potential buyers pull information on property listings as a result, but maybe even more importantly other Realtors will be exposed to the property and thus can communicate that information to their potential buyers. Internet Exposure through the MLS is the best way to leverage more Minnesota Realtors.
