Marketing Your House Today
Selling a home today is not the same as it was even 5 years ago. It’s way different than it was just 15 years ago when everything was in print and Realtors where the only ones with the information that was published in a book every 2 weeks! Pre internet a local real estate agent with an established market presence was your best option.
Real estate agents controlled access all data in those books I mentioned. There were no real estate search engines like we have so many of today like Realtor.com, Trulia, or Zillow. If you wanted to buy a home you would have to drive around and look for homes for sale, look for homes in your local newspaper, or work with a well established local real estate agent.
