Being young and innovative, I have new ideas. I believe in the power of internet advertising. It has been proven time and time again that to get maximum exposure for a listing, use of the internet is critical. Statistics show that over 80% of buyers utilize the internet for their property search. I take full advantage of this fabulous tool. In fact I do more internet advertising then any other Realtor I know of!
Your property will dominate the internet…yes I said dominate. We want everyone possible to know that your property is for sale. I advertise on over 75 websites!
Here is a list of some of the websites you will find your property advertised if you list with me:
- MLS (of course)
- I will purchase your homes address as a domain name (e.g. www.490stanley.com)
- Century 21 Kelowna website
- Century 21 North America website
- Century 21 Canada website
- Century 21 International website
- My website www.florko.ca (voted #1 Century 21 site in Kelowna for traffic)
- U-Tube Video of your property
- QR Code (see below)
- Facebook marketplace
- Open House Kelowna.com
- Point to Agent.com (Uses ‘echo syndication’ to syndicate your listing to over 45 websites including: The real estate channel, Google Base Beta, Oodle, LiveDeal.ca, Vast, Condo.com, Niche properties Network, 3DVista, etc.)
- Point to Homes.com
- Other Realtors Websites (my listings look so good I have found other agents use them to fill up space on their websites when they do not have enough listings!)
- I have also purchased the phrase "homes for sale in Kelowna" from Google. This means that whenever anyone searches this term or most combinations of the words my website will appear on the first page of the Google search. This will increase traffic to my website and in so doing will increase exposure to your property.
- Google Adwords
- Facebook Adwords
- Blogging on Blogspot.com, Facebook, my space, my website helps to drive internet traffic to the places where your home is listed.
- Other social networking sights you may find your listing on: Twitter, My Facebook pages, Identi.ca, Plurk, FriendFeed, Buzz, Picasa Albums, Flickr, Viddler, Vimeo, Blip.tv, Tumblr, Blogger, Xanga, Wordpress, Scribd, HouZoo, The Housing Block, Zoocasa, Home Gain, Foreclosure.com, Google Maps, AOL real estate, UltraForeclosures, RealEstateActive, PCS, CLRsearch.com, Investor Loft, Campushomesonline.com, Home Trader, Luxury Regestry.com, VivaReal, Cyberhomes, The Housing Pages, Backpage.com, Frontdoor, Zillow.com, Clickable city Directories, RealTown, Tovit, Yahoo real estate, Kazork.com, Househunting.ca, Street seed, Property Shark, HomeFinder, Vast, Hotpads.com, Repeat Property, and many many more!
I will also update many of these sites WEEKLY to keep your home on or near the first page.
I also constantly monitor my internet activity and have the capability to see EXACTLY where the internet action is coming from. This knowledge allows me to manipulate my marketing to capitalize on what is working and tweak the things that are not performing as desired.
Your property will also be advertised in the following ways:
- I will arrange (covering the expenses) for high quality professional photographs which will highlight my vigorous advertising campaign.
- I will have all your advertising materials designed by a professional graphic designer. (at my expense)
- I will have your home listed prominently on my website at www.florko.ca which is the 8th most active real estate websites within the whole of Century 21 Canada (out of over 7500 sites). It was also voted the #1 most active real estate website in Kelowna within Century 21.
- I will purchase the domain name for your homes address and have signage created to allow prospective purchasers to link directly to info on your home by simply imputing your homes address into the computer.
- I have created a ‘QR Code’ and have attached it to my signage and other marketing materials. This code allows anyone with a smart phone or mobile device to scan the QR Code and be instantly directed to your homes info page online...Instantly and on the spot! (see the example below and try it for yourself by downloading the Ap)
- I have paid to make certain that I am on the first page of Google when ever anyone searches for “Kelowna real estate” "homes for sale in Kelowna" or a number of other terms. This will give your listing even more exposure.
- You can expect regular updates on listing activity even if there have been no showing...this way you know I am still on the job and have not vanished from sight.
- I also use the latest technology available to make sure I am easy to reach and on top of things when it comes to working with the buyers who may be interested in buying your home. Ipad, Iphone, home and office MAC’s are just some of the tools I use to stay cutting edge.
- I will create and upload a video showing off the features of your home onto the internet within Utube. This video will then be linked within Facebook, my website, your properties website, and many other places online.
- I will hold open houses which will allow prospective purchasers the opportunity to view your home in a stress free manner. I will be available at each open house both to answer questions and to emphasize all the positive aspects of your home.
- I will list your home on the Realtors' tour. This will give other Realtors the opportunity to view your home first hand so they can better describe what your home has to offer to their clients who are in the market for a home like yours.
- I will have high quality brochures professionally created and on display at your property allowing viewing buyers a takeaway reminder of the features they liked about your home.
- The respected & recognized Century 21 gold sign, prominently placed on your property will alert passersby that your home is for sale and where to find further information.
- I will attach a display to the gold posted sign containing info on your home. This will allow passersby to get some info on the place and hopefully entice them into making a call to set up a viewing appointment.
- I will include your home in my virtual office tour allowing my colleagues the chance to see pictures and details. This is a real asset as it allows me to answer their questions and to really sell your home to other realtors and access their field of qualified buyers.
- I will send an inter-office realtor flyer to all local real estate offices. This will enable Realtors in the Kelowna and surrounding areas to discover first hand that your property has come on the market and what it has to offer.
- I will send info regarding your listing to my whole sphere of influence (prospective buyers, investors, past clients, etc.) letting them know why they may want to look into buying your property. According to the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board over 85% of home sales take place due directly to the contacts and relationships a Realtor has built over the length of their career.
- I will execute strategic advertising by sending media, advertising your home, to real estate offices across Canada.
- I will keep detailed records of who saw your home and when. This will allow me to contact anyone who has taken interest in your property when we smell an offer coming and in many cases this contact can instigate a multiple offer situation. We know what multiple offers mean right? MORE MONEY FOR YOU!
- I will cover the cost of all printed materials and make certain that everyone possible knows whenever we have a major change to the listing. E.g. price adjustment, renovation, upgrade, etc.
- I will provide a complementary moving truck to assist you in moving out of your old house and into your new home. The truck will also be offered to any buyer who purchases through Century 21. This may be one more incentive for them to buy your home.
- By listing with me, a Century 21 agent, you will also have the opportunity to earn Airmiles. Airmiles will also be offered to any buyer who purchases through Century 21. This is one more incentive for them to buy your home. No other real estate company in Canada can offer you this.
These are some (but by no means all) of the things I can do to assist you in selling your home. It is very important to make your home stand out from the crowd. I will do my best to make that happen. Every property has its individual characteristics and strengths. I will capitalize on these and use them to the fullest potential. Nobody will spend more time working to sell your home then I will...I am so confident in that I don't mind saying it!
Give me the opportunity to show you how I can make the sale of your home as easy and stress free as possible. I will provide you with a specific sales analysis, outlining what we can do to make your home sell quickly and at the best possible price. Call me today...It's a risk and obligation free way to get some info that may help make a sold sticker appear on your yard sign.
