We Create Modern & Professional Real Estate Marketing To Help Sell Your Hiddenbrooke Home
The decision to sell your home is one of the most important financial decisions you will make, yet many give little thought to finding the real estate agent best suited to create quality marketing to attract buyers with the highest and best offer.
TWO IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT SELLING YOUR HOME IN TODAY’S MARKETPLACE:
According to the Nov 2012 National Association of REALTORS Home Buyer and Seller Survey: When buyers were asked where they first learned about the home they purchased, 42 percent said the Internet; 34 percent from a real estate agent; 10 percent a yard sign or open house; 6 percent from a friend, neighbor or relative; 5 percent home builders; 2 percent a print or newspaper ad; 2 percent directly from the seller; 1 percent from a home book or magazine and less than 1 percent from other sources. In that same report 90% of home buyers started their search for a home online!
Quality internet marketing and exposure can lead to more buyers. More buyers can lead to more offers. More offers can lead to higher prices, better deals and faster closings.
Great marketing starts with quality photography. We take 60-70 high quality photos with a wide angle lens and flash attachment. We color balance and correct each photo in Photoshop so your home is presented in all it’s glory. These quality photos are not only used in our MLS but used throughout our marketing and also gets syndicated to many real estate searchable websites like REALTOR.com, Tulia, Zillow and others.

According to REALTOR Magazine, the better the property photos, the higher the sales price. Homes with professional photographs were found, on average, to be viewed 61 percent more online than others in that price range shot with a lower-end camera. The listings that used digital SLR cameras also commanded a 47 percent higher asking price per square foot, according to the Redfin analysis. You can read more about the article here ».
