Let’s cut through the hype you may be seeing as regards Internet Marketing. Sure, every real estate agency worth its salt has a website. And, our website is better than most in presenting our seller listings to showcase them to their greatest potential. And, we’re really good at all of that SEO, Search Engine Optimization, stuff. That’s the stuff we do on our site to get as high in search engine results as possible to get the most in search engine visitor traffic. We're aiming to have your home seen by all buyers, and hopefully before they sign up with a Buyer's Agent so you can get them to buy your home FSBO with NO Commission.
However, hyping up this SEO and site traffic is really ignoring the reality of the Internet and any single website’s visibility. There is no single real estate website that’s likely to enjoy more than a single digit percentage of searches performed by buyers looking for local properties. That’s because there are hundreds or thousands of real estate sites and they’re all fighting for searchers, and these searchers are using a half dozen search engines or other resources to locate real estate in our area.
Why tell you this? We want you to learn about the power of “syndication,” and why we spend lots of money, time and effort in syndicating your listing information to a great many real estate websites much larger and more heavily visited than any local real estate websites. We have systems in place to have your listing on hundreds of websites, including CutTheCommission.com, Realtor.com, Yahoo, Trulia, Zillow, Homes.com, CTByOwner.com, FSBOConnection.com, and other major agencies (BHHSNE, Raveis, Coldwell Banker, etc.) within days of your listing going live. We want all buyers to find your property no matter what site they are visiting. And it works!
Here is just a small sample of the sites you'll be on...
