For Sale By Owner Goes Mobile!
The economy is horrible. Every where I drive I see homes for sale. Big fancy homes and old two bedroom style houses inside the city limits, old Mr. Economy is not prejudice as to who he will affect. When you find yourself in a position to have to sell your home, there are several things to consider. First and foremost what medium will you use to let people know your home is for sale.
If you have enough equity in your home that you can afford to give up 3% to a Real Estate agent, then that’s always a great option. They have great marketing tools to alert buyers that your home is on the market. However, in most cases, people want to save as much money as they possibly can and keep that 3% to put in their pocket. That’s why we are seeing more and more “For Sale by Owner” signs popping up in people’s front yards.
If you do choose to sign a contract with a Real Estate agent, be sure to ask them all the ways they plan to market your home. Most will tell you about their website that is searchable and they will put your home in a local magazine of land and homes for sale. Very few will offer you a mobile marketing solution and if they do the process of getting the buyer to the listing for your home is very cumbersome.
If you find yourself in the For Sale By Owner category and want a great and simple mobile marketing solution, you have come to the right place!
Juva Marketing is now offering mobile web sites for your home. When you sign up for this service we will take all of the information about your home (beds and baths, square footage, acerage etc) as well as photos and create an all inclusive mobile website about your home. The website will also include a location feature that uses google maps to give the buyer directions to your address. It also comes complete with click to call buttons and a contact form for those wishing to contact you via email. This keeps your email private until you respond.
Once the website is complete, we will generate a QR code and email it to you. You can use this in your print advertisements (i.e. local paper or classifieds) as well as tape it to your “For Sale By Owner” sign out front. (be sure it is laminated or use clear packing tape to do so) If you want, we also have yard signs that we can have printed with the QR code on it that can be neatly displayed in your front yard.
If you are interested in this service, contact us and get the ball rolling. Sell your home using brand new technology and save 3%! Then put that money to much better use!
