Are you looking for a Calgary Real Estate Agent to sell your home?

Many Calgary Real Estate Agents are “Weekend Warriors” who are “Just passing through”and aren’t committed to doing what it takes to…

Get Your Home Sold Quickly For Top Dollar…

So what sells houses? Real Estate Agents? The location? The Price? Marketing?

What sells houses? Most Calgary Real Estate Agents will tell you that it’s an ethical Real Estate Agent with high morals and principles… them! But the fact is, with CREB® and other local governing bodies, rest assured that the vast majority of the over 5,000 real estate agents in Calgary are operating ethically, and the ones that aren’t will most likely get caught. It’s not who they are that sells houses, it’s what they do!

Is it location? Nothing you can do about location. It is where it is.

Condition? Absolutely. How well you have maintained your home and what value has been maintained by that is certainly a factor.

Price? Absolutely. It has to be priced right. If it’s priced too high it won’t sell. But being priced right is NOT enough to sell a house!

It has to be marketed properly and many Calgary Real Estate Agents do not properly advertise or market a home and nobody teaches them how to do it!

Most Calgary Real Estate Agents Market Your Home By Listing it on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS®), Posting it on Facebook, Highlighting it on Their Website, Putting a Sign on Your Lawn and Hoping That it Sells Before the Listing Runs Out

The question is, which one sells more houses? How many houses are sold because the buyer found it on the MLS®? How about on Facebook? How about on a real estate agent’s website? Or were they driving through the neighbourhood they wanted to live in and saw the sign on the lawn, called the listing realtor and bought the house? Unfortunately, no one keeps track of those crucial statistics, so I have compiled a list of every possible way of advertising and marketing houses for sale, and then started implementing them…

Introducing the Craig Tough Home Marketing Advantage

There are 66 Marketing Initiatives That Will Sell Your Home,
Here Are Some of the Most Popular…

Multiple Listing Service (MLS®)

The Calgary MLS® is an online database with software that shows all of the houses that are available for sale in Calgary. You can find houses by neighbourhood, price, square footage, type, etc. and it lists all of the qualities, along with pictures and possibly videos of the houses that are for sale.

The Sign on the Lawn and Listing Agent

Many houses are sold because people look at which neighbourhood they want to live in and then drive around that neighbourhood to see what’s available. They then call the listing agent rather than hiring a buyers agent, because they think the listing agent might lower their commission since they’ll be getting both the listing (or selling) commission and the buying commission.

Real Estate Office Walk-in and Buyers Agents

Many houses are sold because buyers see real estate offices, walk in, and sign a Buyers Agent Agreement whereby they agree to work with one agent who will help them find their dream home.

Facebook

Does Facebook work to sell houses? Absolutely! Many people spend a lot of time on Facebook and if you advertise where people spend a lot of time, you’ll find buyers, and sellers.

Google

Most people use Google to search for things and houses are no exception. Craig Tough pays a local search expert to get his website ranking as high as possible.

Open Houses

An open house is when a real estate agent takes about 4 hours on a Saturday or a Sunday to put Open House signs up around your neighbourhood and show people in the neighbourhood your home. While a lot of people think that an open house works well to sell your house, it typically acquires buyers for the house sitting agent, who then, more often than not, buy a different home. Craig Tough does them as often as he can, in an effort to build his list of buyers.

Trade Shows

Trade shows are a good place to sell houses. The Calgary Real Estate Board’s trade show is also a good place: http://www.crebforecast.com
