The fact of the matter is, today is a changing market and buyers are looking around before they make a decision. Even the most popular real estate website in the world is only getting 8.4% of the real estate traffic. This means that if your real estate agent is only advertising on REALTOR.ca then you could be missing as much as 92% of the buyers out there. The goal of advertising today is “Distribution not Destination”. It used to be acceptable to say that we only advertised on a few websites, but not today. It’s crucial that your real estate agent advertise on as many websites as they can, if they don’t you’re the one that’s losing out!
Here are the websites that I advertise on:
REALTOR.ca, OREB.ca, gregkelford.com, REMAX.ca, Craigslist, Point2Homes, Google Base, househunting.ca, hotpads.ca, The Real Estate Book (online), oodle, Vast, Street Seed, Home Hippo, HomesZ, Rogers Inc., Repeat Property, Home Away, 4Walls4Me.
As well as all of these sites we also create video tours of your home and upload those to YouTube and sydicate from there to REALTOR.ca, siblingsinthecity.com, REMAX.ca, OREB.ca, Facebook and Twitter.
Over 1/3 of all REALTORS® in Canada haven’t even bothered to get a website yet because they don’t see the value in it*! Only 53% of those REALTORS® with a website actually take the time to post their listings on it*. 65% of all the REALTORS® email addresses on REALTOR.ca are wrong*. Make sure you ask.
