Selling Your Home?

Getting the most for your property requires more than just putting a "For Sale" sign out and listing a property on the local multiple listing service. Your sales listing needs to be seen in a variety of places.

Without a Realtor marketing a home selling can be costly and time consuming. Many buyers are also reluctant to buy a "for sale by owner " property. The two main reasons that hinder Bradenton Real Estateone’s ability to sell their home themselves are not having their home listed on the MLS( Multiple Listing Service) and that Realtors will not show for sale by owner homes. By not having your house listed in the MLS your house also will not be listed in most of the house search engines, such as Realtor.com, Trulia.com, etc. These two things really limit the potential buyers that a home seller can get to view their home. The more exposure your home gets the better your chances of you getting your asking price. For sale by owner homes have sold for an average price of 44% less than houses listed by a realtor so far this year in Manatee and Sarasota counties.

Each property needs its own marketing plan. The object is to get more than just the people on your street to know you're seling your home. Now days over 80% of buyers refer to the internet when looking for a home. Internet strategies are a must for getting your property viewed by as many perspective buyers as possible.Starting with the Multiple Listing Service, and syndicating to Realtor.com, Trulia.com, Zillow.com, MSN.com. Propsmart.com, Googlebase, and thousands of Realtors® websites that are capable of displaying your property.

The internet is not the end all for real estate advertising. The local paper, direct mailing, open houses are all used for properties we list. If you would like to talk about the sale of your Bradenton and Sarasota property please contact us at your convienence.
