Critical First Two Weeks of Marketing Your Home For Sale MLS is KEY!!

When it comes to sell your home , the first two weeks are critical. Its your agent duty to rapidly enter your home in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). This is one of the perks of teaming up with a Real Estate Agent.

Your home will be entered into the MLS showing system with your showing instructions, so that other agents can bring their buyers to see your home. While your listing is being prepared for marketing, your agent will contact his or her buyers and inform colleagues of the new listing.

Your agent will either take photos, or schedule a videographer to help market your home with photos and video. This enables buyers to walk through your home and property virtually, so they can choose or eliminate your home when deciding which home to buy. I strongly suggest you contact Mrs Carla Quintero for a consult regarding  home staging and organization services. She is in the Memphis area and will be happy to answer your emails .

Also he or she may create virtual or printed “feature” sheets that showcase your home’s features to advantage, so buyers can remember it was your home they liked best when it’s time to do side-by-side comparisons. Also, your agent will schedule your home on the MLS tour for other agents to see, and ask for feedback. The agents who see your home in person are important, as they will be able to report your home’s features and condition to their buyers. Homes in top move-in-ready condition sell faster and for more money.

 

Anyone who is interested in homes in your price range and area will know your home is available for sale within the first two weeks of marketing.

If you don’t get many showings or offers, chances are good that your home may be facing stiff competition from other homes on the market. They are in a better location, or superior condition or they’re priced more aggressively.

If you don’t have showings within two weeks of listing your home, consult your agent. Perhaps you can do a little more to spruce up your home’s curb appeal, or perhaps stage the interior to better advantage.

Give your home a little more time before you adjust the price. You may be in a buyer’s marketwith many homes for sale. If so, buyers need more time to sort through the homes on the market.

You don’t want to take chances when marketing your home. Your best chance of selling your home is when it’s new to the market and exciting to buyers. Don’t lose your advantage by overpricing or underpreparing your home for market.
