The New Wave In Real Estate

Traditionally when you are selling a home. You will need to sign a 6 to 8 month listing agreement  with a friend of a friend’s Realtor with 20 years of experience. You are counting in this experience to show. . and after 4 months have passed and an incessantly pressure to drop your price so the “Experience Realtor”  can get his/ her commission before the listing expires, you realize that you’ve made a mistake.

  Face it, you have had your home on the market for 4 months and your real estate agent with 20 years experience has done nothing but use your home as a way to find new buyers to represent, and whines incessantly about how expensive the ads in the newspaper are.

You ask yourself. .why, why, why?

It is amazing to me that the same person that hires a Realtor just because of his “experience” will not think twice and start looking for new home in the Internet in case their house sells.

Hello?. .

Internet!

 Have you considered maybe that the  same person that will be buying your home will do exactly the same?

Start in the internet to search for a new home.

I’m sorry but you and your “experienced” Real Estate Agent are so mired in the toxic phrase “We have always done it this way” and really believe that marketing to sell a home comes in 4 steps

Step #1 Sign the listing

Step #2 Put it in the MLS

Step #3 Put an ad in the local newspaper

Step #4 Do an Open House

And it’s SOLD!!

 

Yet,  you know that when you were looking for your next home, that you never once looked in a newspaper, you looked at the web. You never thought about an  open house . . you simply  found the home that you were looking for online.

Ask your “Experience Realtor” about his internet marketing. Chances are that he may not even have an email address!

Or. .

Their definition of web presence is to have a template by their broker that  gets updated “magically” when they have a new listing.

If you are working with an ol’timer with 20 years of experience and he has never used Postlets.com or did a simple HTML for an ad.. .  run  and stay away from them.

The new wave of Real Estate is here.

GPS, GoogleMaps, Email Blast, Instant Communication and Response, Videos, personalized websites, PPC ads, CSS Feedback, Tablet Presentations.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.

To sell a home these days, you have to think like a buyer and hire a Realtor that has the tools in place. Nowadays,  there is a surge in online companies that are developing the services and tools you will need to help you sell your home the FASTEST AND FOR THE MOST MONEY.

BEWARE of Realtors that want to LIST your house not SELL IT. . There is a difference after all.

A Realtor that wants to list your house will use it to get buyers

A Realtor that wants to sell your home, will market it until it sells.

The first Realtor maybe cheaper. . . . But even if he only charges you ONE DOLLAR

That’s ONE DOLLAR TOO MUCH!

Our website www.ReallyNiceHomes.com is designed completely from scratch and some months has welcomed up to  5000 new visitors.

We don’t just LIST our homes. .

WE SELL THEM!

And. .We are readily available  by calling 240-426-5754
