The survey also revealed where buyers first learned about the home they purchased. With 34% of the buyers saying real estate agent, 32% the Internet, 15% yard signs, 7% saying from friend, relative, or neighbor, 7% from home builders, 3% from a print or newspaper ad, 2% directly from the seller, and 1% saying a home book or magazine.
No real surprise in the survey as to where buyers are searching for homes. Buyers are on the Internet. And due to the large number of real estate websites, buyers are searching for homes not on one but several real estate websites.
A strong online marketing presence is crucial to exposing your home to potential buyers. Because the days of placing a sign in the yard, taking a few photos, and sticking the listing in the local MLS are gone. They are antiquated methods and NOT effective in selling homes.
If you are interested in having your Spring Texas home’s listing where the buyers are, give me a call at 281.804.8626. I will be happy to share with you my marketing strategy which includes having your home’s listing on a smorgasbord of real estate websites.
Including the real estate sites of Realtor.com, Yahoo.com, MSN.com, AOL.com, Zillow.com, Trulia.com, Homes.com, Move.com, HAR.com, Homescapes.com, Google Base, Frontdoor.com, Roost.com, Activerain.com, Localism.com, Hotpads.com, Vast.com, Geebo.com, OLX.com, Craigslist.com, Oodle.com, Frontdoor.com, Houston.org, Homestore.com, Prudentialproperties.com, Prudential.com, Garygreene.com and other real estate sites.
You probably have not heard of the majority of these websites, but the buyers have. And when you are selling your home you need to be where the buyers are.

An absolute expert!! Our first meeting, she did most of the"listening" and allowed me(the seller) to express my opinions and marketing ideas before giving me hers. She was ready for that first meeting with comps that matched my home, not others that just happen to be nearby. Jill is very meticulous and it shows in her marketing strategies. Available for multiple "open houses", revisiting photo shoots (Three different times she had a photographer return to either take more photos), never settling for mediocrity. Jill is patient, focused, and masterfully communicates. My home sold in about 80 days, NOT ONCE did Jill consider deviating from our price or changing marketing strategies for a quick sale? Thanks JILL read less
