What Does Gene Do?

So it has been brought to my attention that I should share more of the things I do to help people sell their home and buy their home. Many have read some of the things that I do to help sell a home. Truthfully it is sometimes hard to outline it “simply”. Each home is different and each home requires something special to get the home sold. So there is no simple formula. A specific and individual marketing approach to get the home sold is required!

With that in mind, here are just a few simple things (a partial list) that are incorporated into an individual marketing approach for each home:

  • Prepare CMA to establish fair market value
  • Prepare, comprehensively go over, and sign listing contract
  • Help prepare home for sale by reviewing inside & outside for buyer appeal
  • Help get bids and make necessary arrangements for repairs or improvements if needed to help increase the value! Personally monitor any work done to home
  • Immediately submit your home to the MLS, for all members to access on line and on mobile devices
  • Once properties are listed, an automatic e-mail will be sent to Long Realty clients about property
  • Make sure there are multiple photos available for MLS agents, Long Realty agents and clients, and all other Internet sites
  • Set up access to show property to prospective buyers
  • Mail out full color Just Listed postcards to area, and buyers looking in your price range creating word-of-mouth activity
  • Mail, email and phone potential buyers, and area businesses with property details
  • Hold open houses and advertise them by sending out additional postcards, Internet advertising on Longrealty.com and MLS, and newspaper advertising
  • Create Home Book for display
  • Advertise in Homes and Land Magazine
  • Internet ads in nearly 40 different sites:  (identify and use the most popular sites) Longrealty.com (average of 20,000 visitors per day and 1.1 million hits per day), Tucsonishome.com, Zillow.com, Tucson.com, Cyberhomes.com, FrontDorr.com (HGTV), leadingRE.com, RealEstate.AOL.com, Realestate.Yahoo.com, Realtor.com, reloHomeSearch.com, Tarmls.com, Treb.com, HomeandLand.com, HomeScout.com, NewYorkTimes.com,  + 20 more..
  • Mobile web search
  • Check on a daily basis what showing agent comments are to enhance marketing, identify the positive and the areas that need enhancement to get the home sold for the highest possible price
