Real Estate Search Strategies #plainspokenagent for the Buyer start from 30,000 feet, for the Seller they start on the world wide web. Let me explain, when searching for your next real estate purchase whether it is your first home of fifth the where is important. You want to start wide so that you don’t miss the true sweet spot (by various criteria like price, condition and location) and that is a process. Follow the process and get more of what you want for less money and hassle. This is not a sprint, for the most part.
For the Seller you start on the web. You want someone who can communicate your property to the right audience and with the right frequency and creativity to draw them to your listing. The more people who look at your property both on-line and then through the showing the better the outcome plain and simple. The most critical days are the first 30 is common knowledge and the truth is the 30 days before the first 30 are the most important. That is when the story is created, shaped and set to be delivered to the market on the first 30 days. If your agent doesn’t have those steps down, the competition will win and you will suffer.
Search is always a process. Map it out first and then adjust the plan as information is brought in. For the Buyer you get closer and closer to the desired property because you have systematically narrowed the field down. For the Seller all your work is before you hire the professional to help you shape your story, your first step is to look at your competition on-line and see who is doing the best story getting real people in the door. These strategies are true in all kinds of markets. Real Estate Search Strategies #plainspokenagent
