3 Reasons Why You Should Work with a Tech Savvy REALTOR®
The sales transaction can be a challenge, no matter what the market, with a myriad of details to attend to, documents to sign, and decisions to make.
Working with a tech savvy REALTOR® to sell your Carlsbad home can be a tremendous advantage to you and to your transaction. How?
Using technology allows for a faster response in many cases, and in a format you may prefer.
Texting, emailing, Facebook messaging, Skype and Facetime, in addition to the phone and being face-to-face, offer a broader exchange of information and getting answers to questions more quickly, and at times when you are not actually available to talk in the case of texting and email.
Don’t use email or texting? Not to worry, a tech savvy agent will still get the job done using more traditional communication.
You want and need communication from your agent. A tech savvy agent has more tools to make that happen quickly. But obviously they have to use them. And they need to know what works best for you!
Electronic signatures are widely used and permitted (don’t count on all banks allowing them, or in the case of REOs and short sales).
Being able to sign documents virtually, no matter where you are as long as you have some sort of web access (laptop, iPad, iPhone, Smartphone), and without having to print, sign, then scan/email or fax, saves time and is more efficient.
Plus it saves paper. Multiple parties can sign documents within minutes and be thousands of miles apart. Still like to hold paper or sign in the flesh? It can be done. Sometimes there is no choice.
Electronic signing saves YOU time and hassle. Isn’t that what you want when selling your home? And you’ll be able to download a copy of everything you have signed to save on your laptop, a disk drive, or a CD. And documents can be saved “in the cloud” so you always have access, 24/7/365.
We know an overwhelming majority of buyers are looking for homes online. You NEED to be there, or your house does, for them to find you. Remember – the first Open House is on the Internet, the instant you go live on the MLS.
If your REALTOR is not using the Internet to create a significant presence for your home, you are missing out on a significant potential buyer pool, which includes agents who are looking on behalf of their buyer clients.
Relying on a sign in the yard, an open house or two, and a newspaper ad simply will not cut it in most markets these days. A tech savvy agent KNOWS where to target market your home online, and to use technology to get the word out to everyone who could be a buyer for YOUR home. You know you need maximum exposure, to get in front of as many eyes as possible. A tech savvy REALTOR®
makes that happen.
