Surpassing the Industry Standard,
Marketing your Home
Marketing is one of the most important aspects when selling your home! Any realtor can put your home onto MLS.ca or Realtor.ca, then sit back and wait for it to sell...or hope it will sell. Here are just some of the things that the Frank Mihal Team does to effectively market and sell your home.
...is what we do!
1 - Online Presence
Over 90% of people use the internet and the web to start their real estate search or to locate a real estate agent. A great web presence is extremely important to effectively market your home to this massive group of buyers. Exposure to the most amount of people is the key!
2 - Offline Presence
Speaks for itself! Moving billboards outperform any static type of advertising (ie: bus benches)
3 - Professional Pictures / Virtual Tours with QR Codes for Mobile use
Have you ever looked on the MLS only to see 1 picture of the front of the property, or worse, no picture at all?...it can be very frustrating. A home with limited or no pictures may be forgotten as buyers often assume it is because the home does not show well. More than ever, home searches are done online and people want to see what the property looks and feels like before ever setting foot inside. The Frank Mihal Team works with a group of professional photographers that take quality wide angle pictures & a virtual tour of your home. This guarantees that prospective buyers coming through your home are already very interested as they already have a feel for your home and are now just taking the process one step further. This eliminates people walking through your front door and realizing it's not for them, thus wasting everybody's time and efforts. The amazing 360° horizontal & vertical virtual tour, gives buyers the ability to see your home as if they were there themselves...wall to wall and floor to ceiling! We also feature Google Street View & QR Codes incorporated into every listing making it even easier for prospective buyers to get a feel for your home & neighbourhood right from their smart phone!
4 - Personal Showings / No Lockbox's
The Frank Mihal Team believes strongly in the benefit of personally showing your home to potential buyers & buyers agents. This gives us the opportunity to point out the unique benefits & features that your home may have over the competition. To put it simply...why your home is better than any of the other listings in the neighborhood!
It also give you (the seller) piece of mind as strangers will not be viewing your home on their own, not to mention it's a great way to get instant feedback from potential purchasers. It is also a great time to answer any questions the buyers may have and overcome any potential hurdles or deal breakers right on the spot. We are hired to sell your home, and we feel a lockbox or you opening the door for buyers simply does not accomplish this to its fullest potential.
5 - Print Media
Just Listed flyers sent to your local community. Many times people who live in your local neighborhood know people who are looking to move into the area. Flyers are a great way of letting them know that your listing (the best on the block) is available to purchase!
Just listed flyers to not only in my personal office, but to other local offices in each and every Realtor's mailslot. Just in case they miss it online, they will definitely see it when they check their mail. Any one of them could be working with a buyer looking for a home like yours.
6 - Signage
Directional arrows throughout the neighborhood, allows potential buyers to actually find your home! Buyers always tend to drive around the neighborhood to "scope" it out before actually viewing any homes. Be the one they find and get excited about.
QR codes are used on the Listing sign, so any potential buyers looking at your house can simply scan the for sale sign with their Smart Phone and VOILLA... the full virtual tour of your home pops up right in the palm of their hand instantly!
Give this one a try!
7 - Feedback
The #1 complaint Realtors get is lack of communication. Sellers feel frustrated if there home is not selling and they havent heard from their Realtor in 3 months. We step it up. After Every showing we either email or text (whichever is best for you) any feedback from the showing and how we felt it went. This not only keeps you informed at all times, but also keeps the lines of communication open, so we can manage our progress and adjust things if necessary to get your home sold!
8 - www.MLS.ca, www.Realtor.ca, Mlxchange
Of course your home is listing both on MLS.ca & Realtor.ca which is were the public is searching for homes. It will also be featured on Mlxchange, which is the main system Realtors use when searching for properties. This system provides all the members in the Real Estate board (over 3000 of them) with detailed information & stunning photographs of your home. There is a good chance that one of them has a buyer for your home, which makes this a wonderful tool.
9 - Social Media
Social Media has changed the face of real estate and is something that is definitely here to stay. If used properly, it gives people the power to expose things to thousands of people instantly. We effectively utilize the 2 largest social media platforms... Twitter & Facebook. Using these online tools are a great way to spread the word to potential buyers as well as other realtors for new listings, open houses, price reductions etc... to get maximum exposure for your home!
