Blogging For Real Estate Listings is a Good Thing Nowadays!

Blogging For Real Estate Listings is a Good Thing Nowadays!

Do you get calls from total strangers that you have never spoken to before?

Do you have folks that you don't know stop you in the street to tell you that they enjoy reading your online material?  

Do you have folks ask you to help them sell their house when you have never met them? Google search on iPhone


I have!

I have had many calls over the past several weeks for helping sellers out with the selling of their homes.   I can give direct credit for 4-5 of these to my internet presence, and 2 more to my direct mail campaign in my neighborhood.    The calls are not just coming from one town - many towns!   Stamford, Westport, Wilton, Ridgefield, Trumbull, etc.....

The calls resulting from my internet presence are very interesting and fun, because the callers usually speak like they know me.   Perhaps they have read enough to feel like they do know me.    I am not a writer, but do like to ramble about what is top of my mind.  Perhaps this is easier to read also.   I am who I am.   Honest, reliable, trustworthy, hard working and wanting only the best for everyone.

My internet presence is on mobile devices as well as on computers.    Did you know that over 50% of the searches today are done on hand held devices?

Try blogging if you haven't yet - it's fun!   Especially when you can see the results on Page 1 on Google and in calls from prospective clients!

Dagny, that is great, but then it's not as if you weren't already a well know agent in those areas. Hard to forget the name as well.

I have found the most valuable blog article for getting listings is market reports.  I got a call recently from the owner of a multimillion dollar property (actually common in my mark), who claimed that my market report covering the last four years was the best he had ever seen. He will be selling in a couple of years and is committed to using me to handle the transaction.

Dagny - I just had a conversation covering what you have said here in trying to get another agent to increase his online presence and the benefits of doing so.  I will refer him to this post. Good job!

Had a call today and will be meeting a seller this week to talk about listing their home and have a signed listing agreement for another property to put on the market sometime next month.  Yep they found me on the internet.
