Therefore, when your condo is listed exclusively, it is shown by any licensed agent who brings a qualified customer looking for a property such as yours. If you are a buyer, we have this shared resource, so you only need ONE exceptional broker to look after your real estate interests.

FROM MARKETING YOUR PROPERTY TO POST CLOSING.

5 EFFECTIVE MARKETING STEPS in getting your South Florida property showcased, marketed, exposed, negotiated & sold the very first time. Selling real estate in today’s South Florida market requires a vast knowledge, experience, diligence and the financial ability to advertise and promote your property throughout the entire marketing process. I spend a fortune to be positioned where I am online and in getting your property showcased professionally.

1. PREPARING YOUR PROPERTY FOR SALE

  • Identify profitable (cost effective) home improvement strategies to enhance the property value.
  • Establish a competitive market price with the aim of multiple customer & client queries, showings & offers.
  • I help give an unbiased, realistic view of your property and relay selling options & effective strategies available.
  • Understand your criteria for selling and professionally assess your needs & wants, plans & end goals when selling.
  • Provide comprehensive market date information with pricing bands to then recommend the best pricing strategy.
  • Identify the optimal marketing solution, develop & implement a complete marketing plan for an aggressive promotion.
  • Seller awareness when there is a strong emotional attachment, seller over-improvement or any functional obsolescence that may hinder the sale.
  • I pay for all marketing & advertising costs associated with the sale and begin hiring vendors immediately once the marketing agreement is signed.
  • Your time is valuable so spend it how you choose to - allow me to handle the finite details and show you results while you release this time-consuming goal.

2. SHOWING YOUR PROPERTY & VIDEO OPEN HOUSES

  • Arrange for a professional cleaning service to brighten & shine your property.
  • Network with other top Realtors, clients & customers by phone calls, database emails, and direct mail.
  • Create a Showcase Video to serve as a 24-hour open house for global exposure (Youtube Channel, Vimeo, FB).
  • Present your property to the past, and present prospects interested in your type of property, area or price range.
  • Help you prepare the property for staging and showcasing the property to give the ‘WOW factor’ to prospective buyers.
  • I personally show your property to qualified prospects and the Realtor community representing qualified buyers; no lock boxes!
  • Brokers Opens (Special properties by request) for luxury homes & condos. Realtors show up to get free lunch, and the results are minimal.
  • Open House for your home or condo (by request only) – less than 1% of homes sell by an open house as most Realtors do open houses for buyer leads.

3. DIGITAL MARKETING & TECHNOLOGY

  • Website Address of your property with a (SPS) Single Property Showcase Website.
  • Placing your showcased property on the Southeast Florida Regional Multiple Listing Service (MLS) that markets to over 40,000+ real estate agents in our immediate market area plus Broward and the Palm Beaches along with the public through Realtor.com and shared worldwide and locally through IDX Solutions.
  • Placing & positioning your property on over 20+ of the world’s finest luxury real estate websites; these include Realtor.com®, WorldProperties (TRC direct to 28 other countries), Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Mansion Global, CountryLife, PropGoLuxury, JamesList, The Washington Post, The Telegraph, Hong Kong Tatler, HGTV Front Door, RealtyTrac, Immobel, Trulia, Zillow, Homes.com, LivingChoices and many more.
  • Promote your property here on MiamiDreamRealty.com (Featured Property), a powerful real estate website with global exposure and appearing in literally hundreds of directories. Major search engines include Google, Yahoo!, AOL, Best of Web, MSN and others include their foreign version (.ru, .br, .ca) ensuring maximized presence on the top of all Internet searches.
  • A Showcase Blog Post displaying your properties details and high-quality photographs under the 'Just Listed' category; see Miami Beach Real Estate Blog.
  • Additionally, promote your property through MiamiBeachRealEstateBlog.us (Featured Listings) noting hundreds of daily visitors who look to see luxury property information such as yours. Another Miami website and all of which are members of the Google Directory with a large and ever-increasing presence on the net.
  • Your property on Realtor.com, which is the world’s biggest database of real estate for sale, as well as the official site for the National Association of Realtors®. Your property will consist of professional photographs, VIDEO Tour, and professionally written text, describing all the most relative and appealing features of your property.
  • Social media communities showcasing your property and promoted on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter. I have access to private Social Media brokerage accounts where South Florida properties are shared daily to top producing agents and brokers.
  • Market your property through Integrated Realty Information Systems (IDX) to Brokers and Agents throughout Southeast Florida. I allow and highly suggest Broker Reciprocity through the IDX Solutions. If your agent does not allow reciprocity, it is a disservice to your best interests as other agents may then also advertise & expose your property.
  • Market Your Property through Wall Street Journal Online (Properties above $1M) and other Sotheby's residential market affiliates.
  • Statistics & Preview Results of the number of viewers your property is attracting along with their domestic & International locations. This data is presented monthly or at anytime upon request.
  • Market your property to top Brokers, building specialists, and other agents who have sold similar properties through direct email & local networking events.
  • Distribute your property information to selected Brokers, building & neighborhood agents along with top agencies dealing in luxury waterfront property in Southeast Florida. I have a vast email database of the most successful agents actively selling in our South Florida communities.
  • I reach out via email, text, and phone to other building & area specialists to suggest your property for sale and encouraging them as a cooperating broker.
  • e-Pro Referral program  (ePro NAR tech-savvy Internet solutions) along with the Institute of Luxury Home Marketing (ILHM) referral network.

4. HIGHEST IMPACT MARKETING SOLUTIONS

  • YouTube, Vimeo & FB (1080 HD & 4K) Video published online & through multiple site feeds.

(Video open house tours on all forms of internet advertising where accepted, i.e., Vimeo & FB Videos, Realtor.com, RealBird, MiamiBeachRealEstateBlog.us, and many other websites.)
