Tips From the Close: Tips on Getting Real Estate Listings This week I put out a call for tips and ideas. After my real estate agents and I did an internet search looking for ways to increase our listings, we discovered that we were missing many important steps needed to launch a successful listing marketing campaign. In this article we're going to cover the top five things to avoid when developing or expanding your real estate listings. We hope that you'll find these tips and ideas helpful, but if you have any additional tips or suggestions, we'd love to hear them!
Tip Number One - Don't Overlook the Seller. Most real estate agents believe that a realtor's job is to act as a gatekeeper between the buyer and the seller. While that's a valuable role, it doesn't mean that a real estate agent has to ignore the wishes of the buyer. A good way to get leads in your listings is to provide the information that a buyer is looking for. If you're not offering information on a specific home, consider speaking with the owner first so you can share information that may be useful to the buyer.
Tip Number Two - Use Multiple Listing Service (MLS). There are many MLS services available online to help agents get listings into the local newspaper, magazines and websites. Using an MLS service makes it easier for buyers to find properties in your area by selecting homes and neighborhoods based on criteria such as price, location, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, age of the home, and more.
Tip Number Three - Try Social Media Marketing. We've all heard of the power of social media. How can real estate agents leverage the power of social media? Realtors have an opportunity to get leads and build relationships through social media. With the rise of Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites, many people are creating and maintaining Facebook pages, Twitter accounts and blogs.
Tip Number Four - Farm Out the Area. As mentioned above, talk to your Realtor about your farm area or any other neighborhoods in your area. Ask if they could help you get exposure by posting a listing in the farmer's paper, on a website or in the neighborhood coffee shop. This last suggestion is a great tip because some real estate agents don't know much about the area, but a potential buyer might see something that is compelling and decide to make an offer.
All four of the above tricks are sure to make your listings more interesting to your readers. You'll attract new agents who are searching for New York City property. You'll also give first time buyers another great place to look for their perfect home. By following this advice, you'll be on the right track to getting the best out of your real estate listings.
