Listing Your Property   Leave a comment

If you plan on listing your Milford CT real estate, you want the most exposure possible. There’s a lot of competition out there, and there are also many factors that may affect your listing, such as your location and price, so you’ll need all the exposure you can get to increase you chances of selling your property at the price you deserve.

Here are a few ways you can get this optimal marketing exposure:

1) Yard Signs

If you want to keep up with the competition of other Milford CT homes for sale, you need to put up a yard sign for your listing. I’ve dealt with some sellers who refused to put up a yard sign. Did any of them sell their property? No.

Of course, it’s up to YOU the seller as it’s YOUR listing, but if you are serious about selling your home, definitely consider a yard sign, especially if your property is located on a high traffic road.

2) Craigslist

While this internet classifieds site is more inclined towards rental listings, this is still an excellent avenue for advertising your listing. Craigslist has a large amount of traffic, so if you take advantage of this traffic source, you can get a lot of exposure to your listing.

3) Real Estate Authority Sites

Big name real estate authority sites such as Trulia, ActiveRain, and Zillow attract large amounts of local target traffic towards their listing pages. As a Prudential CT Realtor, I can have your home listed on such sites. Most of them have in-depth metrics systems so I can track when people actually check out your listings. With the power of the internet, this is such a strong tool in your marketing arsenal.

4) My Website

Many Realtors in the area still don’t have websites. Even if they do, they don’t receive the amount of exposure that mine does, as it’s optimized for Google and other various search engines. Through my website, you will receive lots of traffic to your Milford CT homes for sale listed, especially with our site designed for generating leads.

5) The Local MLS

This is a great resource that you’ll only get if you sign a listing agreement with a licensed real estate agent. With your home in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), you’ll have your listing exposed to all the agents in the area. So when they’re browsing for properties to show their buyers, yours has a high chance for showings and offers.
