This topic is one that I take deadly serious and that is how a home is marketed! I am a 100% dedicated online real estate agent and believe in the power of online marketing. That being said, there is so much at stake for Sellers and they need to be assured that their interests are being well represented and respected. This OMREB article does touch on making sure that the REALTOR® you choose has a strong marketing plan in place. Enjoy reading this and thanks for stopping by!
A Real Estate Listing: More Than Just an Ad in the Paper!
"Are you thinking of selling your home? If so, you will need professional help to ensure your home gets maximum exposure and is well-marketed. You will want to enlist the services of a real estate professional to make sure you achieve your goals.
The listing is the beginning of a selling process that includes a well-thought-out and detailed marketing plan, accessibility to a wide range of potential buyers and commitments to professional service. It also means you will receive friendly, helpful advice throughout the sale of your home.
Technically speaking, a listing is an authority granted by you to a real estate broker to act as your agent in offering your property for sale or lease - according to the terms and conditions set out in the listing contract.
When you list your home with a real estate broker, you are entering into a binding agreement with that firm, so it is important to choose a company and a real estate salesperson that you are satisfied with. To find the right firm and individual, try interviewing three REALTORS® and ask them about the services they will offer when they list your home."
