Marketing your home in Seattle to reach the best buyers requires a comprehensive strategy. There is so much to be done before this stage in the home selling process, including:
- Do necessary repairs in your home
- Consider and complete key renovations to maximize the sale potential
- Move out and get it staged OR prepare to get it and keep it market-ready during the listing
After all that, it is a shame to think that some listing agents don’t do the most they can to ensure that there are lots of eyes get on the listing, lots of buyers at open houses, and—finally—lots of competitive offers for your home. (It’s one of the reasons why some home sellers end up asking, “Why isn’t my home selling in Seattle of all places?”) Don’t let your treasure get lost among a rush of new listings. Work with an agent who can market the heck out of your home.
We have a longer article that goes in-depth on the essentials of Online Real Estate Marketing. For a deeper dive, check it out, but here we’re going to do a quick run-through of some of the essential points when it comes to marketing your home in Seattle.
The Diva Difference is Best Seen in Our Real Estate Marketing
When Team Diva launches a new listing, every last detail about your home is on the MLS to help anxious buyers get in the door. In addition to the MLS, we have a customized, search-engine-optimized listing page on our site. This is cross-linked with a custom blog post, explaining why your listing is so special. It features 40+ professional photos, plus a custom video tour of the home and its best features.
It isn’t just the home, but the neighborhood that matters to buyers, so we also have Seattle Neighborhood pages to get buyers dialed into what makes your neighborhood appealing even before they visit.
