What do page views mean you? Do you want more traffic through your house?
We all know almost everyone start looking at homes on the internet before they actually decide to buy and many times before they decide to start looking with a real estate agent. As this prospective home buyer is looking on line at homes on websites such as DenverRealEstate.com or Realtor.com or even OBEO.com the websites track how many people have looked at the website and each room. It even tracks where the consumer came from. Did they go directly to that site or were they referred to that site and which site sent them there.
Buyers: You want to make sure you are looking at sites that are updating daily with the local MLS, or you might be looking at homes that are no longer on the market. Best thing to do is contact a full-time Realtor like me to help you. If you do go to my site, you can simply sign up for a daily e-mail with the newest listings in your parameters.
Sellers: You will want to make sure your full-time Realtor has your house posted on as many sites as possible. My recent experience is that once a listing starts seeing 30 showings per day on at least one site, it is getting close to selling. I used to be able to tell that we were getting close to receiving an offer by how many people entered the house, now, the internet is guiding us.
All of my listings are posted to each website above and are also posted to as many as 40 other sites. Driving traffic to your house is one of the most important parts of my job. I use our conventional and dependable resources and in addition, I am posting to Criags List, Twitter, Facebook, Delicious, Digg. The Kentwood Company and I partner with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World which links to an addition 700 other real estate firms and their websites.
Buyers and traffic, doesn’t mean just showing up in the car anymore, it means the buyer must like it online before they show up in the car.
