Advertising Your Home.
Since 90 percent of buyers search for a home online, your agent will begin marketing and advertising your listing on multiple websites and across other mediums to bring the greatest exposure to your home. TalktoTucker.com receives over 3.3 million visits annually. Your agent will also place your listing to MIBOR.com and REALTOR.com and perhaps other sites your agent deems beneficial.
Appointment Scheduling For Showings.
F.C. Tucker agents use Centralized Showing Service (CSS) to set up appointments to show your property. CSS makes it easier and more efficient to show your home and receive valuable feedback. With one phone number, any agent can request a time to show your property. CSS is available 33% longer than traditional real estate office hours making setting showing times easier. Thus making it easy for potential buyers to see your home.
Open Houses and Showings.
Once you are on the market, don’t let all that good preparation go to waste. Make sure to keep your home clean and ready for potential buyers.
Your agent will likely recommend open houses. An open house can be a great sales tool, but it also exposes you to numerous unfamiliar people for the first time. Stay safe by practicing these guidelines for open houses as well as scheduled showings.
- Remove, or lock up, prescription drugs and jewelry.
- Make sure computers in the home are locked and password protected.
- Be sure bills, passports, etc. are secured.
- Make sure small devices like iPods and iPads are locked up or removed from the home.
