Calgary Realtor-Using Social Media to Sell Your House-Episode #119

Calgary REALTOR®-Social Media Marketing to Sell Your House

Have you heard of Social Media Marketing? Do you think it is powerful enough to get your house sold? There are quite a few people that are ahead of the curve that obviously feel this way. Unfortunately from what I have seen lately, most people are doing this by themselves, without the help and guidance of their REALTOR®.

I think this is a mistake on the part of the real estate agent that you the seller have employed to get your home sold. I believe the "Professional" should be taking the lead on this type of marketing. It seems as though most sellers that are using this style of marketing are doing it on their own without the assistance of their Agent.

Selling your House with Social Media

So how would you go about this? Well first I would formulate a plan with your REALTOR®. Oh mean your REALTOR® doesn't have a Facebook profile or a Twitter profile or a YouTube channel? Oooooo....Ok. Well what then?

Option A: You espouse the benefits of having social media profiles to your Agent of choice and wait on them to build their communities(just so you know, I have been on FB since 2007 and active on Twitter since the beginning of 2010). This might not be the best choice...

Option B: Find an Agent that is educated in these new ways of marketing and formulate a plan with them.

I am thinking maybe option B might be the best way to go for most people considering that SMM(Social Media Marketing) is still pretty new to the Calgary marketplace.

There are a few of us out there, you just have to know where to look. If you are plugged in...I shouldn't be that hard to find!
