  • According to research conducted by the National Association of Realtors, more than 80% of buyers begin their search via LinkedIn, Facebook, Branchout, Stik.com, Twitter and more...(More than 80% of consumers looking for real estate begin their search online)
  • Internet marketing allows people from all over the world to view your property, whether a consumer is relocating to your area from abroad or perhaps are temporarily overseas for employment purposes.
  • With a growing internet presence, more and more search engines are available to consumers, more portals and websites are popping up enabling buyers to view details on real estate. It's very difficult to keep up with the many new networking and real estate websites and to know which ones are worth entering your properties information on. Web tracking is key in helping me to discern which sites are optimal and those that are not.This allows me to spend more time focusing on the ones that attract more buyers to your property. Web tracking is key when marketing via the internet.

Prudential Value-Range Marketing

 pvrmlogo
  • Prudential Real Estate encourages the use of Prudential Value-Range Marketing to its Realtors. It is a marketing tool worth notice. Although it is not designed for every transaction or Seller, it can greatly help lessen your properties time on the market bringing you the most equity for your real estate investment. Let's face it, real estate is an investment, a very large investment. As a home owner, I understand the value of equity and what it means for my long term goals. I exercise these principles when accepting the responsibility of marketing your property, whether it is a residential property, condo or townhome, land or commercial property, vacation property or an estate sale.  
  •   Prudential Value-Range Marketing is a valuable marketing tool that allows a Seller to set a range of a dollar amount that they would consider in receiving an offer to purchase their property. This does not mean that these figures are set in stone, it simply means that the Seller is flexible, understands the changing market and is willing to negotiate. It also lets prospective buyers know that anything below that range, although possibly considered, is not generally what a Seller is looking to accept for the purchase of their property. 
  • An example of Value-Range Marketing would appear similar to this:

        "Seller to entertain offers between $347,900 and $423,500"

Sellers are provided "real-time marketing updates" and cutting edge market data and specific data on their property such as how often their property showed up on research results, or how many times their property was viewed in a very structured format. It will tell them how many viewers have saved their property in their portfolio, plus new listings and photos in the seller's immediate neighborhood, price changes of homes in the seller's immediate neighborhoods,status changes (sold, pending, price reductions) of competitive properties in the seller's local area.

Distressed Property Expert

 houseunderwater
  • To consider yourself an expert in the field of Short Sales does not require multiple designations, it requires practice, a skill set learned through hands-on, practical application, careful study in the area and a desire to work harder with longer hours, while maintaining patience and efficiency and most importantly thinking outside the box. When the market took a turn for the worse, Realtors had to get creative in their marketing strategies and quickly adapt to changes in order to serve their clientele with exceptional ability.
  • Putting together a Short Sale package takes skill and an in-depth knowledge of what banks and financial institutions want to see and the processes involved. Understanding portals and having the patience to spend hours on the phone contacting key Short Sale negotiators to work your package.

  • To a Seller facing a possible foreclosure, it can be scary and emotionally draining.Never let anyone tell you that it is okay to just walk away and let them take care of matters. It is in a Sellers best interests to continually maintain contact with the bank or financial institution, keeping them abreast of the progress that you and your Realtor are making in bringing to the table an approved short sale.
  • As we see more and more short sales and foreclosures on the market, it is important to learn as much as you can about a short sale. If you are interested in meeting with me for a confidential consultation to discuss your options, please call, text or email me anytime. For more information on Short Sales, Click here .
