Why Your Realtor® Won't Be Using An Ad to Sell Your Home Or Condo

The embedded video is compelling in describing why print media advertising is in decline while social media is rocketing skyward.  I continue to do some print advertising in my market but the emplasis is on social media.  View the video to find out why.

Thank you Marlene for locating this video.  Aloha & best wishes.

We all decide to sell our homes for different reasons.  No matter what the reason, most everyone I meet here in Orange County, California wants me to help them sell their homes and condos in the shortest period of time, for the most money with the least amount of hassle

For years, print advertising was a great way to advertise properties that are for sale.  If you've met with a Realtor® lately to discuss selling your home, you may have been surprised when they told you they wouldn't be advertising your home in the newspaper or in a glossy magazine.  Watch this compelling video to see why...then ask your Realtor® how they will be using social media and other types of internet marketing to get your home S O L D...

If you or someone you know is thinking about buying or selling a home in Orange County California it would be my pleasure to work alongside to help. Helping you achieve your goals and dreams is what I get to do...it's my profession and my joy...I'm here to help!

We agree we have stopped ads in the local paper about 5 years ago and with little change in our activity.

Richard..Great reblog!

Hi Richard...Thanks for Re-Blogging this post, I missed it. I'm not sure why you got slapped for a re-blog, you may want to call Brad.

I don't do any print advertising at all any more, at Rain Camp in Seattle we found out that people are spending 32 hours a week online...that's more than TV.

Cheers

Yes, it's a good one.  I wasn't aware I had been penalized and don't know what that's about, thanks for the heads-up.  That may be my last re-blog.

Hi Richard ....I emailed them and suggested they review this, but call Brad, that's his job. Here the Post I did on Social Media...One I saw at Rain Camp in Seattle.

I don't do many re-blogs, however if I see something I know everyone would like to read I do and to my groups.

Re-Blog if you think it's something to share with us all...heck I would have missed this if you hadn't re-blogged.

How's the Weather... wish I was there:O))

Have a Great day in the Sun .

Thanks Fred.  One of the advantages of re-blogging is that I know where to find it in the future when I need it.

Aloha

Richard, thanks for re-blogging this.  I'll have to share this video when I get those clients that insist on newspaper advertising.

Hi Richard:

Personally, I still do some paper advertising here.

I do get some activity from it.

Thanks for stopping by Judi.  You are fortunate to live in a state where "slowdown" is an unknown word.  I visit periodically and am amazed at the continued new construction there.

Aloha!

Richard - I use the internet exclusively but my Broker pays for print ads. The advantage of course, for on-line ads is you usually don't have to pay and they reach a lot of people.
