A 4K VIDEO TOUR THAT IS SEO OPTIMIZED ON YOUTUBE
SEO means search engine optimization. Check out the rankings we were able to get on one of our recent videos (the green number indicates the video's ranking on YouTube when searching that term). Since YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world, it is important to be sure your videos are properly optimized in order to show up in search results.
OUR BEAUTIFUL, USER-FRIENDLY WEBSITE
The biggest reason we're able to attract so much attention is that we can control the presentation of your listing on our website.
The MLS, listing portals, and most broker sites have a standard formatting layout. This prevents you from customizing the presentation to the way you want it to display.
On MrWestside.com, we're free to showcase your home in the best way possible, so that's exactly what we do!
FACEBOOK & INSTAGRAM MARKETING
We understand people don't go to Facebook to buy a home. But we know for a fact that lots of Facebook visitors are potential homebuyers. After all, Facebook is the most popular social media site worldwide!
More than once, we've heard stories like: "We weren't looking to buy a home, but we saw your listing on Facebook and realized we had to have it".
EMAIL TO LOCAL REALTORS ANNOUNCING THE NEW LISTING
A new listing blast goes out to 8000+ local agents. In addition, for scheduled weekend open houses, there is a blast that goes out to 10,000+ local agents!
ADWERX CAMPAIGN ANNOUNCING THE LISTING TO OUR DATABASE OF 20,000 POTENTIAL WESTSIDE BUYERS
We expose your listing to our massive database by running online campaigns to get the listing in front of these contacts who already know us. This campaign produces a minimum of 4500 impressions per week. Your listing will be featured online where people spend their time - sites like CNN, YouTube, and hundreds more. These ads appear on about 97% of the web.
WE PULL A LIST OF BUYERS CURRENTLY LOOKING AT SIMILAR HOMES
With just a few clicks, we are able to pull up a list of buyers actively searching on our website for a home like yours and email the new listing announcement to them. Ask me to show you a list of buyers currently searching our website for a home similar to yours!
THE MARKETING LISTED ABOVE CONTAINS THE MARKETING STRATEGIES THAT WE FEEL HAVE THE BIGGEST IMPACT ON GETTING YOU THE BEST PRICE FOR YOUR HOME
But there is lots of additional marketing that we do for our listings - see below:
- Inputting the listing into the MLS (multiple listing system).
- Installing a for sale sign with lights in front of the home.
- Adding a scan QR code for more info sign rider below the for sale sign (so anyone driving by can quickly & easily get info about the home and also view the photos & video).
- Reverse prospecting is done thru the MLS, which involves emailing other Realtors with clients who have a saved MLS search looking for a home like yours.
- RE/MAX is the largest real estate company in the world. It is in the most countries & also has the most offices, which helps your home get great international exposure.
- RE/MAX Estate Properties is the local franchise we work under and it’s the 4th largest RE/MAX brokerage in the USA and has numerous offices from the Westside to the South Bay & Palos Verdes Peninsula. When the new listing launches, there is a special inner-office announcement that goes to all 700+ agents announcing the new listing.
- Coming soon/off-market listings can no longer be advertised for more than a total of 24 hours due to new MLS rules that started in 2020, but a coming soon listing/off-market is allowed to be promoted within the same brokerage as soon as a listing contract is signed. Since RE/MAX Estate Properties has so many agents, this can sometimes produce a great buyer for the home before it officially hits the market!
- There will be a custom home webpage for the home on our website that will feature: the written description of the home, photos of the home, a video walk-thru, a 3D tour, a floor plan, a neighborhood report, & a map showing the home’s location. Example: www.MrWestside.com/BeverlyGlen
- We will do additional Social Media Marketing for the home on LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, & TikTok.
- The listing will be posted on the RE/MAX Estate Properties Facebook Page & also on 2 Local Realtor Facebook Groups.
- It will be posted on Facebook Marketplace, NextDoor, Craigslist, & Reddit.
- Our listing launch is a rapid launch. We are able to get the photos & video processed very quickly, so the listing will hit the market shortly after the listing contract is signed.
- Open Houses (both Sunday as well as on Tuesday for brokers) with 8 open house signs plus flags posted for the open houses.
- Luxury marketing - listings priced over $2 million qualify to be listed on the RE/MAX Collection, a luxury homes website, which helps expose the home to more high-end buyers. Elite Global Advertising: We will showcase your listing in Wall Street Journal, Robb Report, DuPont Registry, Unique Homes, Mansion Global, plus over 100 international ads, and more.
- Additional customization of our marketing plan is available upon request.
Our spectacular marketing helps your home get maximum exposure very quickly which helps create a lot of traffic (both online & home viewings) and excitement. This, combined with beautiful visuals showcasing the home, helps us get you the highest possible price for your home. We often see buyers race to submit very strong offers before the first open house because when buyers find your home & fall in love with it, they realize that the home is already showing up everywhere online, and they want to snatch it up before someone else can.
