Selling a home in today’s market can be challenging. The Bartos Group understands. While the market can be challenging, thousands of properties are sold each month in Southwest Florida. What’s the difference between selling your home or failing to do so?

Staging your property is critical to not only exceptional photography and viewing on the internet where 90+% buyers begin their search. It is also allows the buyer to see themselves in your property. Personal photos, furniture placement, and de-cluttering go a long way to selling your home. Sometimes art just needs to be repositioned in your home. We provide a free consultation by a professional stager to recommend a plan to optimize your home’s appeal.
Any one can take photos of your property. However, professional photos are essential for the highest exposure of your property on the internet. In today’s real estate market, over 90% of buyers begin on the internet. On the internet, first impressions matter. If your property does not sparkle, the buyer may not want to see it. That is why we provide top quality professional photography to our listing clients.
Virtual Tour & Video
Most internet prospects look for listing with a Virtual Tour attached. The Virtual Home Tour is a dynamic way to present your property on the world-wide web. It allows internet buyers to experience a guided tour. It’s like having an Open House 24 hours / 7 days a week. Virtual Tours allow for multiple panoramic views of the property in full motion with text and sound to enhance the experience. It is also interactive. Allowing the viewer to review property information, download a brochure or request more information from the agent.
Internet visitors are very accustomed to video. We record our favorites shows, stream movies and review the latest video posts on Facebook and YouTube. Video is a very new and different way to market as compared to virtual tours which use still photos. National Association of Realtors recently asked sellers what was Important to sell their home. 89% of sellers said that a video would sell their home faster for more money. Only 7% of realtors know how to do it and only 4% actually do create a video. We heard the sellers. The Bartos Group continues to be on the cutting edge taking advantage of our technology background to create videos of your property.
Our goal is to sell YOUR home. With a mega open house, our goal is to get as many eyes on your home as soon as possible.
- Invite all of our social media contacts on facebook, Linkedin, etc. by posting the open house.
- Invite hundreds of your neighbors, if possible, for lunch and a preview.
- Publicize the open house on the internet in Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia, etc. and in the paper.
Open Houses on their own are not productive as many unqualified parties tour your home. However, with The Bartos Group approach, we maximize the exposure of your home.
Of course, we only do an open house if you agree to have one.
According to the National Association of Realtors, 90% of those looking for a home, start their search on the internet. The Bartos Group recognizes this trend and is investing in ways to market your property over this quickly growing media. Your property will be exposed to the real estate buyer pool world-wide via Multiple Interactive Websites including our own web portal www.Marco-Naples-Homes.com, YourSWFLRealEstate.com, MarcoIslandScene.TV and Premiere PlusRealty.com. It will also be syndicated to both national and regional-oriented sites like Realtor.com, Homes.com, Zillow, Craigslist, Trulia, Yahoo as well as 1000’s of sites through Broker Reciprocity, and ListHub . We are a member of an international MLS and Global Real Estate Network called ProxioPro.com. This site has over 600,000 agents worldwide that syndicates your property to WorldProperties.com which is available in over 100 countries and is available in 9 different languages.
Just because a realtor has a website doesn’t mean that your property is being exposed to the buyer pool. Since 37% of buyers find their home on the internet. You want to make sure that your home can be found. We have a large budget to aggressively market to pull buyers into our websites. This broadens your chances of finding the right buyer for you. We achieve this through constant optimization of our website’s search engine criteria (i.e., Google, Yahoo, Bing etc.) and strategically placed web ads.
The Bartos Group has thousands of buyers in our on-line database where we have recorded their buying preferences. We send out an email blast to them once a month after we list your home. We see our virtual tour traffic increase significantly when we email, so we know they are looking at your home. We also use email to reach thousands of agents both locally and remotely to get the word out about your property.
We understand that only 2% of buyers find their homes via print advertising, however, we feel that it is important to advertise in print because many people on vacation will pick up the local paper and/or magazines. Instead of the traditional “Call Us” advertising that most agents do in local newspapers and magazines, we employ technology in our ads to create buyer interaction.
The internet has become a social melting pot that offers people and communities a platform to connect in a cyber world of social interaction. The Bartos Group has harnessed this new technology by creating presences on Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest and Twitter, allowing us to update our friend lists with new listings and updates. We are continually looking for new ways to reach perspective buyers through these social media networks.
By entering your property into a Multiple Listing Service (MLS), we give thousand’s of agents access to your property information. Considering 75% of the property sold are sold by an agent that didn’t list the property, an MLS listing maximizes your market exposure. It is also a major advantage over selling your property on your own. We list your property in the Marco Island and SWFLA Multiple Listing Services, and ProxioPro.com with over 600,000 international agents.
