Yesterday afternoon Marshall Saunders, Co-Owner of RE/MAX Results hosted a Technology in Real Estate Seminar. The seminar was geared towards real estate agents but there were some interesting statistics that could I think could possibly be helpful to my clients. If you are thinking of selling your home these statistics are important as well as you want to get the most exposure possible for your home. (more…)
And the top real estate website is, according to the just released 2011 statistics, REMAX.com! It was the number one site for consumers searching for real estate! As most of us know, more and more people are turning to the internet for all their shopping needs and this does also include real estate. Statistically about 88% of home buyers search for their home online, and about 40% of home buyers actually find the home that they buy online. What this says to me is that for a seller, getting internet exposure is really the key to getting your home sold! Other major players that are not themselves real estate companies are Realtor.com, Zillow.com and Trulia.com which make up about 20% of the sites consumers are searching. When I list a home, that home is not only on the sites I have mentioned but on another 40+ sites. My goal is to have your home out there for the public to see and to present it so that they also want to set up a showing and possibly write an offer. Many larger real estate companies are dropping off of some of the major real estate websites which will limit internet exposure for their listings, this is definitely not what you want if you are a seller! If you are considering selling your home, give me a call! I would be more than happy to go over my internet marketing plan with you!
