Ep 68: The Importance of Social Media When Selling a Home

Today we open up the mailbag for a couple of listener questions, which got us into a great discussion on the value of social media when it comes to marketing your home. Find out where Colleen stands on this strategy.

On This Episode:

When searching for a real estate agent, the strategy of pushing social media marketing has become a prominent topic of discussion. Some really utilize digital marketing and others don’t spend as much time or money on it.

We had a listener ask us this question because they are trying to decide whether to work with a friend who doesn’t use social media much. This led us into a great discussion why we use Facebook and Instagram quite a bit when trying to sell a client’s home and what value we’ve found out of the social media platforms.

This episode also features a question about companies that offer to buy your home without you having to list it. Is this still an option?

And don’t forget, you can text LISTING to 77222 to find out the potential value of your home.

[3:08]  Mailbag Question #1: I wanted to sell my house fast and easy like I heard about in commercials, where I don’t have to list my house and they’ll just buy it straight from me. None of these businesses are returning my calls. Is this still possible?

[6:40]Mailbag Question #2: My good friend is a realtor but she’s not big into social media. I’ve heard you talk about the importance of advertising a home on social media. Would I be missing out if we used my friend as an agent?

Colleen Quotes:

We get calls all day long from our Facebook ads and we do them at a very high level.
