Many sellers list with agents who offer little advertising. As an agent (and as a homeowner), I often wonder why sellers list with an agent that does not have the capability and know-how to advertise properly, or an agent who simply does not pay for the advertising that is absolutely critical to selling a home. In today's real estate world, anyone can throw a sign up in your front yard. So why list your property with an agent whose marketing plan is outdated and inadequate? Many of my clients have re-listed their property with me after starting out with other agents. Each of them had been enticed by a lower commission rate, not realizing that the decrease in commission also decreases the advertising for the property. This begs the age-old question: If a tree falls in the woods with no one around to hear it, does it make a sound? If a property is listed without adequate advertising, will anyone know its there?
When selling your home, your agent has the responsibility of allowing as many potential buyers to see it as possible. You need to be sure that you choose an agent who will advertise your property effectively. This is not the same as the advertising done by an agent to market themselves. A blend of current and traditional marketing techniques should be utilized by your agent. Your property should be marketed on websites that rank highly on the major search engines such as Google and Yahoo. Print advertisements should run in all the local real estate magazines that consistently have high circulation. Your property should be included in email distribution to other real estate agents as well as your agent's buyer contacts. Weekly or monthly mailers should be sent to prospective buyers. The more ways that your property is advertised, the larger your pool of potential buyers becomes.
