Over 95% of home buyers searched for houses online in 2016, according to the National Association of Realtors. In fact, for the first year ever, buyers were more likely to find their new home online instead of through their real estate agent! But despite the importance of the internet in today’s real estate market, 90% of buyers chose to use a real estate agent to assist them with navigating negotiations, managing difficult paperwork, and providing them with expert guidance.
While sellers tend to be focused on things like curb appeal and cleanliness (and we agree that these are two important factors!), it’s especially important for today’s homeowners to consider their property’s online presence in order to attract buyers to their home. A lot of real state agents have claimed that “picture appeal is the new curb appeal” and for good reason – after all, if your home’s online photos don’t adequately showcase your home’s best features, how will you receive any showings?
Additionally, when you sell your home through EveryHome, your agent will ensure that your home is marketed on all major real estate websites to give your home maximum exposure. Plus, it’ll be featured on EveryHome.com, where tens of thousands of serious buyers browse each week.
