In real estate, a popular refrain is "Location, Location, Location". When it comes to marketing, the refrain should be "Exposure, Exposure, Exposure".
What can you do after you have placed a For Sale sign, an MLS listing, and scheduled the property for an ad campaign in the local newspaper? In most areas, you can also list the property in a Real Estate magazine; an expensive form of advertising. Now, you have done everything you and your competition normally do.
Real estate is competitive; you want to stand out from the crowd. What else can you do?
List more! Not more properties (although that is a great way to increase your earnings). I am talking about listing the property in an Online Multiple Listing Service. There are several sites offering free or low-rate listing services. Some sites offer classified ads that feature the property on its own mini-website. The listing services and the single property websites also submit the property to all the major search engines and various sites for further exposure at no extra cost.
No time to manage another listing service, upload photos and/or virtual tours? Consider using your friendly Virtual Assistant. A Virtual Assistant can input the initial data and manage the listing for you.
