How I Market Your Home Online
Professional Results Guaranteed - Dave Overholser - Keller Williams Premier Realty
Let’s cut through the hype you may be seeing as regards Internet marketing of Martinsburg area real estate. Sure, every agent worth its salt has a website. And, my website is better than most in presenting my seller listings to showcase them to their greatest potential. And, I'm really good at all of that SEO, Search Engine Optimization, stuff. That’s the stuff I do on my site to get as high in search engine results as possible to get the most in search engine visitor traffic.
However, hyping up this SEO and site traffic is really ignoring the reality of the Internet and any single website’s visibility; unless you’re Yahoo or Google. There is no single real estate website that’s likely to enjoy more than a single digit percentage of searches performed by buyers looking for local properties. That’s because there are hundreds or thousands of real estate sites and they’re all fighting for searchers, but these searchers are also using a half dozen search engines or other resources to locate real estate in our area.
Why tell you this? I want you to learn about the power of “syndication,” and why I spend significant resources, time and effort in syndicating your listing information to a great many real estate websites much larger and more heavily visited than any local real estate websites. I have systems in place to have your listing on dozens of websites, including Yahoo, Trulia, Zillow, and others, and within days of your listing going live.
So, although I'm getting great search engine exposure, I'm not relying on it to be my only resource to sell your home through online marketing. Each of those sites to which I syndicate your listing will have links back to the original and complete listing at my website. It’s there that I shine in marketing your Martinsburg area real estate property once I’ve attracted visitors from these other sites.
To Get You The Highest Price and Maximum Exposure For Your Home I do this:
- I take a full and expert suite of professional quality images of your home. These images will showcase your property and are critical to Internet marketing. Surveys prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that buyers value high quality images more than any other feature of real estate listings.
- I purchase a Home Warranty for your property which will begin protecting your home from the day its purchased and transfer over to the buyers----> Buyers Love This!
- Optional...I purchase an Appraisal to get your home priced right from the start
- Virtual tours, YouTube videos and Personal Property sites are created for your property. These things along with my blogs will consistently get your home ranked on the first page of Google and other search engines.
- A toll Free Info line as well as Mobile text for info and pictures is setup so your homes info is available 24/7 from both online and offline sources
- Thorough professionally written text descriptions and very thorough MLS® information fields to bring every facet of your property to the prospective buyer.
- Emails with flyers and info are sent out to all realtors in the area.
- Promote to my Social Media contacts...currently over 8,000 people.
- Once a buyer gets to my site from these many conduits, I don’t just let them look and leave. I offer showings and other special information about the market and your property in exchange for their contact information. If I can get into direct contact with them, it’s going to increase my chances of selling your property to them.
- Home Staging is also an option as well as my Certified PreOwned Program!
