Sellers – Make Sure Your Crystal Coast Real Estate Agent is Web-savvy!

Here are a few things to keep in mind when selecting your Crystal Coast real estate agent. Now more than ever, deciding who you select as your Crystal Coast real estate agent could mean the difference in your Crystal Coast property languishing on the market or it selling in a timely manner. Why? It’s all about using the power of the Internet to market your home for its maximum fair market value so it has every opportunity to sell quicker.

Crystal Coast Home Buyers are Smart!Selling Your Crystal Coast Property Using the Power of the Internet

Remember, Internet-empowered Crystal Coast home buyers of today are smarter than ever and lean heavily on the Internet to fact-find and search for homes on many websites. Recent studies indicate almost 80% of buyers use the Internet to search for homes. That means you, as a home seller, must be equally Internet-savvy. Before you hire just any Crystal Coast real estate agent, be sure you conduct a thorough interview process.

Be a Wise Crystal Coast Home Seller

Use the interview process to determine which agent will offer your Crystal Coast beach property or condo maximum exposure on the Worldwide web. If you think homes sell as a result of traditional news paper ads, think again. Sure it might happen once in a blue-moon. Smart home sellers and their web-savvy agents understand it is all about using the power of the Internet to attract more buyers.

Questions to Ask a Crystal Coast Listing Agent

Most agents offer sellers a home marketing plan. Why not go a step further and ask each candidate to provide the details of their “Internet Marketing Strategy” for your Crystal Coast home. Again, marketing to web-savvy buyers is all about being in position to “attract” as many prospects as possible to your Crystal Coast home or condo. The next question you should ask is, “Besides “featuring” my home on your personal website, will you “syndicate” my Crystal Coast home on many web portals? If so, where?” Buyers know to use these high-traffic websites like to search for homes. Web-savvy listing agents should be able to reply that they will feature your home on many (if not all) of the following syndicated websites:

The Deer in the Headlights Moment!

One word of caution. If during this portion of your interview the listing agent reviews this list and has that “deer in the headlights” look, that might be a bad sign. Then again, if you “connect” with this particular agent, it is in your best interest that he or she know about these portals. Then follow up to insure your home is receiving the maximum exposure on the Internet you deserve.

I look forward to your comments.
