I am primarily a buyers agent but I do take a lot of listings. Having an agent that is also a buyers agent not just a listing agent can really help you understand the in's and out's in the mindset of a home buyer. Real estate agents that solely do one or the other may not understand the implications and the strategies of the other type of agent. You see, there is a buyers agent and a seller's agent. Each of these two parties have their own real estate agent and they split the commission once the sale is complete. Using a real estate agent that is also proficient in the buying and the selling side of the real estate agent can put you light-years ahead of the game. We understand both sides and can help you negotiate for the best terms and the best price.
However, I often get homeowners that ask is there anything they could be doing to help sell their listing?
The answer is always a resounding, yes! Although I am your listing agent and it is my job and duty to advertise your listing to potential buyers, buyers agents and on the local Emma Lass, which homeowners cannot do without a license, there are some things that homeowners can do in order to push their listing even further.
My connection of online marketing combined with SEO, content marketing and social media marketing means that your listing will get in front of more buyers than ever before. However, I am not friends with your friends on your social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You never know where your buyer might come from so exposing your listing to as many people as possible is really the key to getting the right buyer through the door.
While I never recommend homeowners having to spend money to advertise their listing it certainly cannot hurt to advertise your listing on your social media accounts and let your friends, family and acquaintances know that your house is on the market. It is my job to advertise your listing using paved sources when necessary but any and all advertising and marketing of your listing can certainly help put the property in front of the right buyer.
