Online marketing of your home is critical. Today 90% of people start their search for a home on the internet.
www.OwenBigland.com Allows us to feature and showcase your property with large high-resolution photos, full text description and key details. A map to show the exact location and Google street view allows searchers to virtually ‘see’ the property. This provides for the ultimate showcase of your home while providing maximum search engine optimization (Google search) to deliver organic search results which is also supplemented by our Google paid search campaign
We also harness the power of video with my Inside Edge Video Blog. It features Owen’s views, opinions and expertise on a variety of Vancouver Real Estate topics. The video blog is NOT about promoting listings or selling, but rather more of a Real Estate information and educational source for all types of people. It drives a tremendous amount of traffic to the OwenBigland.com site, creating bonus exposure to all my active home page listings. Your home will be seen by thousands of potential buyers 24 hours a day.
We prepare and print high quality, glossy brochures to showcase your property which include photos and floor plans. These are given to potential buyers and real estate agents to leave them with a lasting, memorable impression of your home.
Print advertising is far from dead! It still attracts buyers. I use a combination of direct mail advertising and postal walk advertising (just listed). Both are specifically designed to identify buyers, increase property exposure and traffic. Our marketing materials are professionally designed, customized and of very high quality. I also have access to The Vancouver Sun, Globe & Mail, Real Estate Weekly and many other publications. Exposing your property to hundreds of thousands of potential buyers will help it sell faster and provide maximum exposure.
Your home will be featured in a 1/4 page Real Estate Weekly ad every week until SOLD!
For luxury homes priced at $2 Million or more we expand our reach to potential buyers from across the globe. This is done through full page features in Macdonald Realty’s Luxury Homes Collection magazine which is distributed throughout North America, Europe and Asia. This printed magazine is produced quarterly and includes high quality, glossy photos and descriptive text of your home. We also actively list your property on a variety of global websites as shown below.
I strongly believe in the benefit of personally showing your home to potential buyers and buyer agents. This gives me the opportunity to point out the unique benefits and features that your home may have over the competition. It will also give you the (seller) peace of mind knowing that strangers will not be viewing your home on their own. It’s also another way to get instant feedback from potential buyers.
Through an exclusive arrangement with the Vancouver Sun, your listing will appear in the Weekend Home Section providing massive exposure to approximately 500K people across British Columbia.
All listings are advertised on the multiple listing service and feature our professional photography as well as detailed and well written property descriptions, open house schedules and realtor specific remarks. Owen will also add this to both Realtor.ca and Realtylink.org. Buyers constantly rely on the informational from these websites for their home buying options.
Open houses are a proud part of Owen’s marketing campaign. Homes are still bought through open houses and he will always be sure to host open houses when your listing first hits the market. Opens are also a great way to get instant feedback and allows us to make the proper marketing adjustments if necessary.
Other Realtors will view your home and share the information with hundreds of potential buyers.
When you hire me as your Realtor you get me! Not an assistant, team member or tour guide. I am present for everything that matters. Showings, Open houses accepting offers countering offers, keeping you informed with buyer comments and feedback and weekly reviews.
I will update you with comments and feedback after each showing and open house. I will also review all the activities I have performed to get your house sold and any recommendations I may have for your property.
