In this day and age, in the current reality of buying and selling homes, it doesn’t matter where an agent lives or works. The agent’s home or work address doesn’t play a part in the agent’s ability to sell your home or help you find a new home.
With technology, we can do it all from anywhere, even with a phone. We can check a listing, sign a contract, update a listing, and so much more. We put all of that technology to work to market homes for sellers, find prospective homes for buyers, keep up to date on the real estate world, and provide our clients with the information they need to make informed decisions.
Whether you’re in the city, the Northtowns, the Southtowns, or elsewhere in Western New York, we can help you. If you are a seller, we can market your home so that when buyers go online, they’ll find your listing. That’s the first step toward replacing that For Sale sign with a Sold sign. If you’re a buyer, we’ll put our skills to work to help you find your new home.
If you’re a seller, your goal is to sell your home as quickly as possible and for the most money. If you’re a buyer, you’re looking for the place that will meet your needs and become a home. Either way, it doesn’t matter where your agent lives.
What matters is the relationship you have with your agent. Are you comfortable with your agent? Are you confident that your agent will work hard for you? Are you comfortable with your agent’s marketing plan to sell your home? Will your agent do everything possible to market your home, including on the Internet, in neighborhoods, to fellow REALTORS, and through newsletters, flyers, and articles?
Many people think agents are all the same and that anyone can use the MLS. The reality is much different. When it comes to selling, the difference is strategic marketing. It may make the difference between listing your home and selling your home! It determines if you sell quickly or stay on the market for an extended period of time with no offers or very low offers. Selling quickly doesn’t mean your home was underpriced; it means it was priced correctly.
Who’s the best agent for you? The best for you is the agent who pays attention to details, works hard for you, and makes you feel comfortable with the process of selling a house or buying a home. It doesn’t matter who has the most listings, has sold the most properties, makes the most money, or works at the largest brokerage. The best agent for you is an experienced professional who listens to you, conducts themselves in an ethical manner, and knows the market.
Home buyers use the Internet on a regular basis. They search Realtor.com, Trulia.com, and Zillow.com. They use Google to learn about the home-buying process and search for homes. In their search for information and insight, they also turn to Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, and countless other social networking sites.
If you are selling, it’s essential to ask questions before you put your home on the market. Consider the modern realities of home selling! Did you know that more than 92% of all home buyers start their house hunting on the Internet? More than 75% of buyers first see their home online. As a result, it is important to ask how many unique visitors come to an agent’s site each day. Did you know you can check their numbers? Ask me how!
