Any experienced REALTOR® can provide you with point-of-entry service—in other words the services you should expect
from a professional, including confidentiality, helping you set a competitive price, advice on preparing your home to show to its best advantage, researching title and survey, preparing listing documentation, listing on MLS, showing the property, and negotiating with buyers.How will you market my home?
If you’re selling a home in the mid-to-upper price range on Bowen Island, the most important thing to ask your REALTOR® is, “How will you market my home?” This is especially true on Bowen Island because the higher the listing price of the home, the more likely the buyer will come from off-island, be that Metro-Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, or the USA. The 9 second challenge
: The marketing industry suggests we now have just 9 seconds to grab someone’s attention (that’s the attention span of a goldfish…)—9 seconds to ‘interrupt’ them long enough to deliver our message. And because “facts tell but stories sell” we’ll craft a story around your home.Collaboration
: I say ‘we’ because this is a collaborative process involving your history and insights to help identify the ideal customer and my background in graphics, copywriting and storytelling to present the story we want your home to tell. Social media
: The effectiveness, economy, and geographic reach of social media—especially Facebook—is unparalleled. It allows us to specifically target the prospective buyer most likely to be interested in your home based on income, interests, age, location, and other demographic markers. We can market as easily in Toronto or Seattle as in Metro or on Bowen Island. And unlike traditional print advertising, we get immediate feedback which we can then refine to create an ever more targeted approach.
I’m happy to provide a no obligation proposal on selling your home. Tim Rhodes 604-341-948
