Marketing Plan: Gino will use a combination of the following marketing strategies to sell your home. His objective is to show your home to as many qualified potential purchasers as possible resulting in obtaining the fair market value for your home (highest price possible) in the shortest amount of time possible.
An Open House: Your home will be opened up to be viewed during one or more than one afternoons. There are two types of open houses: a realtors open house is for realtors with clients looking for a home like yours and a public open house which is open to the general public. Gino will take care of all of the details and will act on your behalf when showing your home. An open house is a method which realtors use to show the home to as many potential purchasers as possible.
Advertising: Gino may place an ad in the Hamilton Spectator and/or in local papers and magazines (Resale Homes). Lawn signs, direct mail and direct marketing techniques are all used to direct potential purchasers to your home.
MLS (Multiple Listing Service): This is a network that is only available to realtors. The details of your property are available for other realtors to match your property with a potential buyer. This has proven to be one of the most successful ways to promote homes.
The Internet: The Internet is quickly becoming one of the most important methods of promoting real estate. This site is well-placed in search engines for various Hamilton area real estate search phrases, and your property may be advertised on its own within web sites as well as within www.realtor.ca (a web site to search for Canadian homes).
Setting a Price for Your Home: One of the most important primary functions of a realtor is to set a fair price for your home.
Many factors have to be taken into consideration when setting a price for your home. Your realtor will consider the following
Analyzing your home
Comparing your home to other similar houses for sale or recently sold in the neighbourhood
Financial data (such as interest rates) that will indicate how the market will react to your home for sale
Sales and market statistics these statistics are only available to realtors
Understanding the personal objectives of the homeowner by taking into account the urgency and the requirements of the vendor
The quality and improvements needed to the home may also affect the asking price (see home inspections)
