ADVERTISING YOUR PROPERTIES ON THE INTERNET

"I want my properties listed on the Internet - how do I do it?"



A search for sites that will advertise your listings and services will reveal hundreds of different places. To help save you time when first considering your own Internet Presence I have summarized information on several vendors who's services seem well accepted by a large number of other realtors.

By design this list is kept small, so you can quickly get a feel for the type of services, the price ranges, and the presentation formats that are available. Use this list as a starting point and then search out other services that you may find attractive.

Before you make your final selection I would encourage you to communicate with current advertisers and the vendors to get all your questions answered.
To increase the impact of your Presence on the Internet, you might want to consider what Becky Swann of IRED (International Real Estate Directory) has to say:



"True agents don't sell houses, they sell information. I want to make sure the information is palatable enough that we don't drive the buyers and sellers off the Internet before they find us.

In fact, to sell real estate via the Internet it is probably more important to sell a community than to try to sell inventory. Educate consumers about your market, what is available, what they can expect in lifestyle and value. Use the Web to demonstrate the value of YOUR service. This is your storefront. Don't waste your valuable showroom and window space."

I would also remind you that all the tenants of good advertising design and copy writing apply to Internet Ads. In the final analysis you are trying to motivate the reader to call you! Many of the sites I visit just contain facts - bedrooms, square feet, price, etc. - with no mention of the special features that might make a particular property attractive to the reader and motivate them to call you.

The following sites, in no particular order, offer space for listings, home pages, and other services that may be of interest to the Realtor. (Please .. note my "fine print" message!)

--> NOTE: This information is presented only as my personal summary of various offers as I understood them, things may have changed, or I may have incorrectly interpreted what I thought I read, or may have made an entry error. I neither encourage or discourage use of any vendor listed, nor can I vouch for their service, business practices, etc. It is your responsibility to contact any vendor you wish to deal with yourself to completely understand their complete terms & conditions, rate schedules, payment plans, etc. I can not be held responsible for errors, changes in vendor pricing, my misinterpretation of vendor offerings, or your bad experiences. I will be happy to accept thanks for good experiences!
