The Google Factor
In my many years in the Information Technology field, I’ve seen things come and go. Technology changes quickly so time is measured in months instead of years. What’s hot now is old news 12 to 18 months later. Obviously the Internet is one technology that has lived on for a long time because of it’s usefulness to spread information. Google has become the champ of search engines (for more than the usual lifespan of a few months) and so we measure information dissemination as to how Google finds and distributes it.
Now you ask, “Why is this important to selling my home?”
Statistics show that a large percentage of home buyers noted they first saw the home they ultimately purchased on a web site. In Real Estate this is known as the ‘First Showing’. Virtual home tours have become a nice addition to displaying homes on the Internet so The Derrick Team takes this one step further. We are launching a new marketing tool available to our Sellers at no cost. We will build a complete web site dedicated to each of our listings packed with even more information than normally distributed via the MIBOR BLC listing. This will include additional photographs and video clips to give the buyer a complete tour of your home. This web site will be a link on all distributed web site materials from the BLC so there is always an option for a Buyer to visit the site from any of the normal home search services.
In addition to this site we utilize many tools to make your site Google friendly including Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Tools, & Google Alerts. This allows us to effectively fine tune our marketing and make sure we increase your homes’ ‘Internet Presence’ effectively. We also utilize the latest Internet social media tools to market you property which also makes it even more Google friendly.
Now is the time to sell your home with a powerful Internet Presence. Give the Derrick Team a call or text today at 317.563.1110 or use our Contact Form here.
