North And Northwest of Chicago Real Estate

Online Home Exposure

Major real estate websites have millions of visitors, but when we narrow down by the state, city and or zip code the numbers shrink. What about when a Realtor is involved directly.

When we are searching for a home,  we narrow down the criteria.  By the type of a home, bedrooms, high-rise, ranch and so on, right?

I was always wondering which of the websites, or who is virtually showing a home for sale the most. Here is the answer for one of my listings.

This pie bellow is showing a click through a page. Not a page view when you can see more than 10 listings on a single page.  When a home buyer is looking at the property provided on a single page with all information about that home. 

My little finding is showing that nothing can be compared without the help of a Realtor. The pie is showing that 813 potential buyers have seen this particular listing that was sent to a home buyer that was looking that type of property. Hopefully in this example Realtor did listen to the client and emailed homes for sale with the criteria that the buyer requested.

Of course maximum exposure is the best, but a Realtor's touch is making the difference.




Few Stats from National Association of REALTORS®, 2009

Selling a home is a full-time job. And most of today's buyers are online (nearly 9 of 10 recent buyers used the Internet in their home search), and unrepresented sellers have no access to major online marketing avenues such as and other sites with large pools of listings to which buyers are attracted.

Just 13% of recent sellers sold their home without professional representation. Only 7% of these sales were on the open market (cases where unrepresented sellers were selling to family, friends and neighbors account for 6 percent of all recent home sale activity).
