It’s all about the internet.
We are the consummate experts when it comes to using the internet to market your home. Here is a summary of what we may include:
1. Listing on important sites
It is crucial that your home is listed on Realtor.com, Zillow.com, Trulia.com, as well as the local Champaign County Association of Realtors site. We do this and work to keep your listing updated as it needs to be.
2. Your home is featured on our home site
SharonHarkness.com is a lovely site that is a magnet for ready buyers in the Champaign Urbana real estate market. This site is filled with links and we have designed it to give the maximum visual experience to visitors as they click through the pages on your home.
3. Interactive floor plan and YouTube
Your home will be photographed and videoed by a professional. Then an interactive floor plan with pictures is created and a youtube video is posted which gives the buyer an excellent view of your home. Here is an example of one of those videos for one of our homes now listed at 1407 Waverly in Champaign .
4. QR codes
We will secure QR codes for you home listing, your dedicated site (see below), the youtube video mentioned above, or whatever URL seems best for people who would drive by. These QRs can be used on the sign in your yard, promotional materials, etc.
5. Dedicated websites
It is possible for us to construct a site just for you home. This site will typically have five pages and will give a map, neighborhood info, contact, photos and video, etc. We keep it simple so that it will come up quickly on a QR code scanner for a mobile phone.
Here is an example for a home we have for sale at 1809 Byrnebruk, Champaign.
6. Yes we tweet
We regularly tweet your home including key words, links to your site and videos, as well as current changes in your listing that might attract interest. Follow us on twitter – @welcometocu .
7. This site
WelcomeToCU.com is a popular blog style site we use to serve the community and act as a gathering point for buyers and sellers in the Champaign Urbana real estate market. Your home will get discussed here, linked here, and featured on blogs here. All a part of the selling process.
