There are certain steps your agent should take in order to take advantage of the crucial two-week period when your home first enters the market.
The first two weeks that your home is listed are crucial to it selling for top dollar, and there are certain marketing steps your agent should take in order to take advantage of during this time frame.
First, they should gather all your home’s criteria and input it into the MLS so that all agents, regardless of their brokerage, are aware of it. For this step, our team uses a pre-marketing plan that targets the buyers in our database so they’re aware of our sellers’ listings as well.
Next, they should double-check that all the information that’s being marketed about your home and the surrounding neighborhood is as accurate as possible.
After that, another step our team takes is providing a professional photographer to take photos of your home so you love how it shows online.
Finally, your agent should make sure your home has a prominent presence online. They should monitor how much views your listing gets and check if any marketing tweaks need to be made.
After these steps are taken, every buyer who’s looking for your type of home in your price range should be aware of it. A high level of exposure should correlate to a high number of showings. If your home’s not getting a high number of showings, it’s either because it’s not showing well compared to the other available homes, it’s priced incorrectly, or your agent isn’t giving it enough exposure.
Our team is very confident in the level of exposure we’re able to provide our listings, so if you’re thinking of selling your home or you have any more questions about our marketing process, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’d be glad to help you.
