I’ve noticed over time how some agents properties sell faster than other agents properties. I've asked them what they do with their marketing that other agents aren’t doing. They mostly say they don’t do anything different.
I've always felt it was my job to help sell their properties. I provide a good photography, I use a good tour service (Tourbuzz.net), who help as much as they can by pushing out the tours to as many places as they can, I get the tours out quick, I place images on social sites with a little remark and so on. I’m interested in your thoughts about this and all the others who read PFRE. I want my clients to think my work sells their properties and not to use anyone else.
It's good marketing to get your customers to believe that the services you provide play a key role in selling their listings. Keep it up!
However, it's important to understand the whole selling process. Here are things that are more important in selling a listing than great photography:
All these things are more important than photography and listing agents vary widely in their ability to do these things. That's why some agents listings sell faster.
So focus on your job, not the listing agent's job. Sure photography is a big help but competent listing agents understand all the things that need to be done and know that the above 4 items are more important than how the property is presented. If you can get your clients to believe it's what you do that gets the property sold great! Just know there are other factors at play too.
