This morning I’ve been working on marketing plans for two different sellers, so I thought I’d share with you what goes into a plan.
First, no two plans are identical. Price range, location, timing, features of the home – all of this comes into consideration.
It all starts with pricing. I will do a market analysis to determine a recommended price range for your home. I don’t rely on automated values, but look at actual listings and sales, market activity, and market conditions. If we don’t price your home properly, no matter how great the marketing materials, it probably won’t sell. With our current market, you definitely don’t want to overprice your home.
The first thing I look at is if your home meets the criteria for Coldwell Banker Global Luxury. This is based on zip code and condition/features of the home. If your home qualifies, it will be included in Coldwell Banker’s luxury marketing materials.
Are staging and landscaping necessary for your home? We want your home to show at its best. All homes I list will have high definition professional photography, and then depending on many factors, some form of video. That video might be a video tour, a live walk-through video, a 3-D Matterport video, and/or a neighborhood video. Most listings will have drone photos as well.
The photos and video will be used for all the online marketing, including the listing itself and its syndication, social media, and websites. Photos will also be used for print marketing such as home flyers/brochures and mailings to neighbors and targeted buyers.
Most listings will have 3-4 open houses during the first week on market. I also network to my local sphere of real estate brokers.
