Is your property exposed to the World of potential Buyers? With 91% of today's home buyers researching home purchasing online first, is your property there to meet them?
My successful marketing approach is to listen to your needs, understand your goals and develop an approach and strategy to help sell your home quickly and for top market value.
Access to the WLS is paramount to selling you home in Whistler. The WLS is without a doubt the single most powerful tool I have to sell your home. Close to 99% of all Whistler homes are marketed through the WLS. Whistler Realtors use the WLS with their buyers and the public access to the public website, www.whistlerlistings.com, from around the World.
The MLS is one of the most powerful tools for listing exposure for outside of the Whistler Market. Although this can duplicate listings with the WLS, I use www.mls.ca to increase exposure of the properties I list for sale to both out-of-town realtors as well as the public.
Together these two factors are paramount when setting a strategy to sell your home. I work with each individual seller to set the price and prepare their home. Our goal is to sell for top market value unlike other listings that will expire with little or no attention.
With 91% of homebuyers going to the internet when first researching buying a home, one of the most important advantages you can have in order to make your home stand out amongst the others is sharp, clear, inviting professional photos of your home marketing online. Without a question professional photography is often the single most important feature that will help your property stand out from the crowd.
Included in my services is photography. I work with some of Whistler's most distinguished photographers to showcase your property in the most appealing way.
With the recent rise in Social Media, we have adopted cutting edge marketing to help sell your home. By tactically using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Linked In and numerous other social networking sites, I enhance your property's exposure to as many potential buyers as possible.
Using new online video marketing technologies, I showcase your property, complex and neighbourhood in a real, yet virtual, way that gives maximum online exposure to a world of buyers that may not always be here in person to view your property.
Once your home is listed, I arrange an open house for other active real estate agents in Whistler. The goal is for me to showcase your home or condo to these other busy agents so that they can call their clients immediately. This tour is usually held on a Tuesday morning between 8:30 and 10:30am.
At your discretion, I host regular public Open Houses on weekends, busy Resort dates and holidays when buyers are in Whistler. This is a great way for potential buyers to get a first hand look at your property. I am always present during your open house.
Private buyer showings are when a buyer's realtor requests to bring his/her clients to your property for a private tour. These showings are given to qualified buyers who are potentially interested in your home. Often serious buyers will request a second or third showing as they make their decision. These showings can frequently be followed by an offer.
