How to Price Your Home
One of the most important aspects of your marketing plan is the pricing strategy. We recommend setting a list price based on comparable sales, current market conditions, and the unique attributes of your home. We’ll meet with you in person to review our pricing recommendations and reach an agreement on the list price.
Sounds simple, right? While we certainly try to make pricing your home as easy as possible, it can be a difficult decision. This article about how to price your home offers a lot of helpful advice.
Marketing Strategy for Selling Your Home
We take a modern and integrated approach to marketing our listings. Your Realtor will work with you to develop a marketing plan specific to your home that includes the following:
Your home will be included in MLS listings, meaning it will appear on all popular home search sites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. It will also appear to other realtors who are working with buyers in the area.
Listing on Our Website
We launched a new website with search engine optimization (SEO) in July 2017. Your home will be listed on our site, which is visited by buyers from throughout Delmarva and beyond. We’ve developed extensive content for home buyers, which helps draw buyers to our site to see our latest listings.
We can feature your home on our popular Facebook page. We feature new listings, price reductions, and homes scheduled for an open house. We encourage you to share the post(s) from our page. Ask your friends and family to share as well. This dramatically increases the number of people who see your listing.
Your listing will be sent out to our email subscribers, which includes hundreds of active buyers.
We host a lot of open houses for our clients. We’ll take care of all the marketing and will be on site to welcome buyers and show them around. You just have to get the house ready for the big day. This article about how to host an awesome open house provides some good tips.
We publish new listings in many local print publications. These include the Dorchester Banner, Star Democrat, Attraction Magazine, Tidewater Times, and Delmarva Farmer, among others.
If possible, we’ll arrange to have a professional photographer take shots of your house. Quality photos make a HUGE difference in your listing. Bright, clutter-free photos will pull buyers through your front door!
