Working with a realtor who knows your region well is imperative. If you are on the verge of putting your home on the market, you can benefit from professional help immediately.
For one thing, prospective buyers may be new to the area or unfamiliar with Oregon. When they google “homes for sale Salem Oregon” or some version of that, you want your listing to grab their attention. The pool of out-of-town buyers relies on local agents to recommend neighborhoods, schools, restaurants, medical facilities, parks, and more.
An excellent agent like Rebecca can match buyer inquiries with your house. Moreover, she can add your property to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and market it within her professional network. Buyers from any marketing channel will ask questions about the nuances of your house. Rebecca, who has lived in the Willamette Valley since she was a child, can speak about it with authority and conviction.

Thorough knowledge of the local market

You may follow real estate trends regularly, but realtors like Rebecca thoroughly understand the national and local markets. Rebecca combines local insight with data to keep apprised of market behaviors like foreclosures, metrics like average median prices, and more. The point is to provide sellers like you with advice. Setting your asking price and timing your sale are two of the most critical factors in your sale. Market insights are invaluable for fielding offers in proportion to your home’s value.

Marketing savvy

Nearly half of all buyers jumpstart their search for a home online, a place notoriously overrun with extraneous information and advertisements. Using powerful marketing materials is the key to standing out from the crowd. Stunning photographs, captivating videos, 3D walking tours, and compelling copy attract buyers’ attention and propel them into action.
Rebecca and her team will work diligently on your behalf to create marketing materials that positively sing. She and her group also know precisely when and where to promote real estate to guarantee a broad swath of viable buyers sees your home.

Trustworthy responsiveness

As one of Oregon’s leading realtors, Rebecca knows firsthand how vital it is to stay on top of communication. Whether it’s following up with leads or responding to a question you have about your pre-listing inspection, Rebecca prioritizes responding to people in a timely, professional fashion.

The realtor you hire is, in essence, the “face” of your home. Nothing can unsettle a buyer and urge them to keep looking for a residence or investment than a listing agent who comes across as standoffish, cold, or disinterested.
