Selling your home infographic
Like most things in life, there is always more to a situation than meets the eye.
We've taken the mystery out of what goes on behind the scenes when one of our top real estate agents lists and sells your home in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa City & Cedar Valley Corridor. See the infographic we've created below to help you understand our approach...education is key.
Today’s buyers want info at the time they call and if your agent is busy when they ring, it could cost you. We ring multiple agents simultaneously to ensure the best possible chance of converting them into a showing.
MLS (Multiple Listing Service)
The MLS is a co-operation of all brokerages working together to sell one another’s listings. This is what connects you to all of the agents and brokerages in the market. Realtors have the buyers, when you list with us, you not only gain access to all of the agents in the market, you also get to access their buyers through automated home search criteria matching. Remember in most cases buyers don’t pay the showing agent.
This service is mind-blowing! Potential buyers can tour your home and see the layout from their computer, phone or tablet. This helps to increase quality showings and works as your best friend for people relocating to the area.
Leave no stone unturned, we publish your home to 60+ local, national and global websites. The vast majority of buyers start browsing online for homes first. You also receive viewing activity reports.
