What Should I Ask a Real Estate Agent about Marketing?

Marketing Your Home

The first question you should ask a real estate agent about marketing is, “Do You Like It?” It may seem like a strange question and the answer will almost always be yes, but it’s all in how the agent answers the question. Real estate agents who love marketing, REALLY love marketing and you will know this for a fact when they answer your question.

You need a real estate agent who LOVES marketing! Why? Because, this type of person enjoys researching the subject and implementing the newest and best marketing techniques for their listings. Marketing is an ever changing thing just as technology is ever changing. Several years ago, standard pictures taken with a point and shoot camera and thrown into a slide show were acceptable – now they are not.

After you have determined if your potential agent LOVES or loves Marketing, then you should ask if the agent is active in popular social media marketing. Social Media Marketing has become a crucial part in providing the maximum exposure for your home and you deserve to have it.

Ask to see an Agent’s marketing proposal – if they have a good one you can expect the same type of attention to your home’s marketing too.
