Homebuyers will create an immediate, lasting emotional connection to your property because they can experience it as if they were really there. Generate momentum like you wouldn’t believe before the first open house with a space-age tool that will captivate buyers.

Expert Staging Advice

We will consult with you to determine what, if anything needs improvement in your home to make it show the best while on the market. Market research shows that staged homes sell in as little as 30 days and for up to 3-6% more than homes not staged. (Staging is optional but recommended in some cases.)

Home Staging: before and after example.

Virtual Home Staging

Virtual Staging is most commonly used for vacant houses. We will have our professional photographer take pictures of each room in the house. We then take these beautiful pictures and re-create them to include stylish home furniture pieces, eye-catching area rugs, and other art and decorative items. This "Make Over" helps home buyers imagine the potential of the vacant property as their future home. If you have looked at homes before then you know how hard it can be to imagine yourself in any given home. This is where virtual home staging can really be a major benefit.

Professional Photography

With 90% of home buyers starting their home search on the internet, It has become more important than ever to ensure your home is professionally photographed. We utilize the latest technology and techniques to ensure your home looks amazing to all potential home buyers.

Geo-Targeting / Geo-Marketing

Utilizing Facebook, Google, and Bing... We target market local and out-of-town buyers for your home by determining the geo-location of a website visitor. In addition, we deliver relevant content to the visitor based on his or her location, such as state, city, zip code, organization, IP address, ISP or other criteria. This cutting edge method of marketing allows us to expose your home to a targeted group of potential home buyers.

Real Estate Signs with Call Capture and Texting Features

No home marketing strategy would be complete without the traditional “For Sale” sign. Of course, we don’t stop there…on top of the real estate sign is a 1-800 number which provides detailed information about your home 24 hours a day. When a buyer calls the number, the caller hears a professionally recorded message. When the call takes place, our office captures the caller’s name and phone number. This call capture feature gives our sales team the opportunity to follow up and set an appointment.

Since many homebuyers prefer the convenience of Texting, our team has designed a system that offers instant access to the professional photos of your home and other detailed information.

Print Advertising in the Local Real Estate Magazine

Print advertising is still being utilized by many people looking for new homes. To take advantage of this we have secured the front inside 2 pages of the local real estate magazine. This guarantees that your home is seen before anyone else. This magazine has a wide distribution covering all of Shasta, and Tehama counties, In addition, the magazine is national and any buyer can access a copy for free anywhere in the country.

Open Houses

Open houses are a great tool for locating a buyer for your home. We employ a guerrilla-style open house strategy which includes massive social marketing prior to the open house, a robust networking strategy to ensure agents know about the open house, internet marketing of the open house and of course LOTS of real estate signs.
