How Buyers REALLY Find Property
The MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICE© and Agent Referrals: Statistics show 75% of buyers found their property through MLS© or a referral from their Agent. (National Assoc. of Realtors) That's why Remax Oceanview Realty concentrates our efforts on MLS© and invests so much in our Agents and our office. Because that's how real estate is REALLY bought and sold! We know it. We embrace it. And that is why we're the top sellers of real estate on the Coast every year.
MLS© provides world-wide exposure of your property. Check out realylink.org, realtor.ca, or remax.ca. All the properties for sale on the Sunshine Coast, available to anyone, any time, anywhere in the world. Why would anyone start thumbing through the local newspaper looking for a home when every real estate listing on the Coast and in the world is available on their computer, lap top or IPhone?
Also, it is important to remember that Agents use MLS© as a principal source for information on real estate. Agents check MLS© many times each day, looking for information on listings so that they may make recommendations to clients. Therefore, by listing MLS© you reach all the Agents, and when you reach all the Agents, you reach all their buyers.
Realtor Referrals: We do this for a living. Every day we make it our business to know the market. When we pick up the phone to tell one of our Buyers that we've found their home we're usually right. When your Realtor is full time, fully trained and a top producer, chances are his or her recommendations will be right on the mark!.
KIOSK At Trail Bay Mall
Remax Oceanview Realty is the only local office with space in Sechelt's busiest mall - Trail Bay Centre. Here we feature picture displays of our listings and other real estate information. This location is one of the highest foot traffic areas on the Sunshine Coast and is especially popular with out-of-town visitors.
The RE/MAX "For Sale" Sign
Still one of the best ways to reach buyers. The Remax Oceanview Realty "For Sale" sign tells buyers and their Realtors that you're serious abourt selling and that you're represented by some of the finest professional Agents in the world. .
Agent's Tour of New Listings
The Agent's Tour allows all Agents on the Sunshine Coast to personally view the new MLS listings. This provides excellent exposure to the sellers of real estate on the Sunshine Coast - Agents. Remax Oceanview Realty cooperates fully with other brokers and supports this Tour.
Remax Oceanview Realty has had a lot of experience with Open Houses. In some situations they're effective, others, not so much. We are prepared to discuss and host Open Houses, mutual schedules allowing, if it appears this would help find a buyer.
This kind of advertising rarely results in showings or sales. It is more often used by Agents to promote themselves than to find buyers for your property. National Assoiation of Realtor statistics show only 3% of buyers found their property through print-ads. That's why when you go into an Agent's office, you will find a computer on their desk - not a stack of newspapers! That's why print ads are only a small part of our Comprehensive Marketing Plan.
You will hear from your Remax Oceanview Realty Agent on a regular basis as we implement the Marketing Plan for your property. We will provide updates on the latest listings, sales and market conditions so that you can make informed decisions regarding pricing and offers. This way, you can be in control of the whole process from start to finish. No surprises, predictable results.
