We've talked at length about the four factors that are within your control as a home-seller.
As a quick review, they are again, the amount of preparation that goes into preparing the home for sale. How well the home is presented. The promotional plan to expose the home to the public, and the pricing.
And I wanna talk to you a little bit about promotion, which is arguably the one factor in your control which you control most indirectly. In other words, your marketing plan is largely going to be decided upon and executed by your real estate agent, so you want to take care in the agent that you select to ensure that they offer a promotional plan that will get your home the exposure that it needs.
Obviously, the more people that know your home is for sale, the better chance you have of getting showings and getting attractive offers.
A lot of real estate agents feel that just putting a home on the MLS and letting it migrate to industry-standard websites is enough. And certainly, given enough time, almost any house might sell that way, but, as I've said before, time is not on your side as a home-seller. The longer your home is on the market, the less likely you are to get an attractive offer. So your goal should always be to get an offer early on from some of the best prospects that are in the market when you list your house for sale. And that requires a targeted marketing plan that has some dollars behind it.
You know, if your agent is gonna post your house under Facebook page, I mean, well, wow, you know, they're probably not even reaching people who that information is relevant to. We're in a pay-to-play environment these days and some advertising budget is required and many agents are not into spending any money if they can get away with it. You want someone that is going to execute a targeted paper-click advertising campaign that will reach out to prospects who are most likely to be interested in a house like yours in an area like yours at the time that your home is for sale.
