The Best Tools to sell my home. Madison Wi

Should I conduct open houses?   How about an ad in the paper to sell my home?Great questions.  

And in this time when selling a home is not as easy as it was, home sellers are looking for answers.

National Realtors Association (NAR) regularly carries out research on home buyer behavior.   One question they ask is where did you first start the home buying process.    (I should draw a distinction from the question as to which source of homes did you look at, the answer to which was 95% used online online)

Not surprisingly, the answer was not so clear cut when it came to figure exactly how the buyer started research on the home buying process.  (see the chart, courtesy of NAR and the KCMBlog.)sell my home madison

The point is that if buyers do not start the process at open house 4%, they will not be looking for homes at open house either.  (4%), Buyers do not use the newspaper these days either. (2%).    69% of the time (the first 3 lines) Buyers start online or by contacting an agent.

Although I know the stats are true it is sometimes difficult to convey to sellers that an open house is not the way to go...but I keep trying!

Hi Guy,  I just received the NAR newsletter (I'm an affilliate member), but what is the KCM blog?  I try to keep up with as much Realtor information as possible as to be a better Stager.  I would love it if you could direct me to the best LOCAL Realtor Blogsites.  I love AR, but I don't feel I can truly be the best at what I do unless I really understand what Realtors are going through, on a more local level.  Hope you don't mind me bothering you, but clearly "There is no other Guy!"  HEE HEE HEE!
