1st Week on the MLS


What Happens When Your Home Hits the Market

Congratulations on taking the exciting step of listing your home on the market! Here we will guide you through the important first week and beyond. 

  1. MLS Stats and Online Marketing Campaigns: We strive to maximize visibility through the MLS and strategic online marketing campaigns, ensuring that our property is seen by potential buyers looking for exactly a home like yours. To keep you informed of our progress, we provide weekly reports on the performance of our online marketing campaigns. These reports allow you to stay updated on the reach and impact of our targeted advertising.
  1. Number of Showings: In the first week, we aim to generate as many showings as possible. During this time, everyone looking for a home for a while sees the new listing and comes to check it out. Those are typically the most motivated buyers. After the initial flurry of activity, only new buyers who enter the market will come to tour the home. If we do not receive showing requests right after the home comes on the market, we proactively assess our marketing strategies and pricing to address any potential issues promptly.
  1. Inviting Prospective Buyers:  We aim to reach as many potential buyers as possible to allow them to tour the home in a variety of ways. They range from open houses and private viewings to virtual tours and broker-only showcases. We tailor our strategy to the unique features of each property to attract different types of buyers.
  1. Timely Communication and Feedback: Communication is vital at every stage of the selling process. We will respond promptly to intersted customers and provide feedback after each showing. Knowing and understanding what buyers think and want is vital for making informed decisions and amending strategies. We believe in the importance of communication and will provide regular updates and weekly reports on the performance of the listing.
