Pre Marketing Vs Pocket Listing

Selling your home as a Pocket Listing with an agent means, Not having the property in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). Your home will NOT be exposed to the maximum# of buyers and agents with buyers. This could cause the sales price to be lower than “market value” . The market place dictates the value, without hitting the market place, how are you sure you got the best price for your home ?
Keep in mind that Real Estate is a “COOPERATIVE INDUSTRY” Once in the MLS your home is exposed to 15,000 + agents & hits as well as many other public sites. Agents with buyers as well the buyers are monitoring these sites.
Pre Marketing a home prior to going into the MLS is a much better idea than the pocket listing.
Why allow us to “pre” market you home prior to going into MLS?
1 to 2 weeks works best.

  1.  Professional virtual tour is used in Pre-Marketing. Pictures sell homes Great Pictures sell homes for more $ $ and faster.
  2.  Pre-marketing to public and to agents Increases our chances of: lower marketing time, potential of multiple offers +++ builds a frenzy
  3.  Higher sale to list price (sold).
  4.  More money to you at the close (will show you when we meet)

IF you are considering selling allow me to show you how to take advantage of the pre-marketing program.
