Thinking about selling your home? Consider choosing an agent that you trust will market your home to the best of their ability and bring you multiple offers. We love helping people accomplish their dreams and building relationships. Agents these days will take your home and throw it up on the MLS, hold an open house or place a Craigslist ad, but in today’s Russian River Real Estate market that isn’t what is selling homes! You need an agent who is online, who is all over Google, who uses social media and video to market your home. You need an agent who is on mobile devices and in front of ALL potential buyers.
Most real estate companies don't double as a Media Company. However, in today's market if your home isn't in the media then it is NOT being seen! Try this exercise with me...Open another window and type in the NAME OF YOUR AGENT and the words REAL ESTATE. Now launch the Google search...what came up? Is your agent active online? Click the MORE TAB, and then click VIDEOS...Did your agent pop up? If not, then how would your home show up if your agent posted it online?
Today's research shows that 60% of people who are online are using a mobile device. The average daily hours that a person spends on their mobile device online is 6 hours! When searching for real estate 52% of Americans say they searched properties online on their phone before contacting an agent. Now that you have these statistics, pick up your phone and search your agents website...is it mobile friendly or is the formatting awkward and out of focus? If you are having trouble navigating your agents website on your phone then how are the 60% of people going to find your home on their mobile devices??? Make sure that your agent's site is mobile friendly so your home doesn't get lost in the mix!
Selling your home begins with learning the value of your Russian River home. Begin by finding a local real estate agent that you trust and having them look through sold homes on the Russian River, homes that are listed for sale, and what the market conditions are for the Russian River Real Estate market and give you an estimate of what your home is worth. You may even want to get an appraisal done for additional information. Then you will need to decide on what price you want to list your home for sale at. Find your home's value.
Staging a home for sale on the Russian River can make a huge difference in home many offers you get and how high the offers are. Staging is especially important if you have already moved out and your home is empty...by adding decor into the home you allow the buyer to envision how their furniture would fit and how they would decorate. Your agent will be able to assist you in making a decision on whether or not you should consider staging.
