HOW WE SELL YOUR ORLANDO HOME
When you decide to sell your home, you want a buyer found quickly and the sale completed for the highest possible price. So putting a sign in your front yard and listing your home in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a start. But it’s not enough. Nine in 10 home buyers today rely on the internet as one of their primary research sources. That’s why Team Donovan invests time and resources into online marketing to ensure YOUR listing is seen by the widest possible audience of prospective buyers – around the world!
More Exposure = More Potential Buyers
More Potential Buyers = More Showings
More Showings = More Competition
More Competition = Higher Sale Price
The Orlando resort area includes Kissimmee, Lake Buena Vista, Celebration, Davenport, Haines City, Clermont, Four Corner, and Windermere. This area near Disney is unique compared to the rest of metropolitan Orlando since it includes vacation homes that are purchased for use as short-term rental properties. Team Donovan has over 50 years of collective experience in the Orlando resort area, working exclusively with sellers and buyers of second homes, investment properties and residences.
Communication with Sellers
Education + Feedback is KEY! Each week, we notify you about the number of showings scheduled for your home, and provide feedback from potential buyers. You can count on us to answer our phones and reply to your emails in a timely manner.
Preparing Your Home to Sell
Making a great first impression is vital when it comes to selling your home. That’s why Team Donovan is committed to ensuring your home stands out from the competition. We will review your home and suggest ways to increase your home’s value. These tips may include cleaning, decluttering, making minor repairs, and/or staging.
Pricing Your Home to Sell
Properly pricing a home is critical to getting it sold quickly and at the best price. Research shows that overpricing your home, and then lowering the price several times the longer it remains on the market usually leads to selling for a much lower price than what you originally should have asked for it. That’s why a Team Donovan agent will prepare a detailed analysis of all past sales, homes under contract and current active listings. We also review details such as taxes and HOA fees. This strategy helps us determine the best possible listing price so you can net what you need.
We leverage the power of the internet, social media, and digital advertising to ensure your home is seen by the largest number of potential qualified buyers. We email information on your home’s real estate listing to the other homeowners in your community. And we email our subscribers, as well as other potential buyers from third-party sites, with your listing details to attract interest in your home. Our internet marketing strategy also includes:
- Social Networking – Facebook & Twitter
- Google Pay Per Click / Adwords
Portals / websites where your home will be seen include:
- My Florida Regional MLS
- Century 21
- Keller Williams
- Partners with International Real Estate Network
When you hire Team Donovan to sell your home, your listing will be exclusively visible to potential buyers from around the world due to our partnership with an International Agents network.
How does this work?
For example, a U.K. based real estate firm features Orlando area homes for sale on its website that come directly from Team Donovan. The firm only displays our listings on its site, which gives you the competitive edge when it comes to attracting potential buyers for your home.
Even though internet marketing is the cornerstone of our home selling marketing plan, traditional marketing techniques still play a key role in our overall marketing strategy. Other avenues Team Donovan uses to promote your property include:
- Professional lawn signs with clear, bold lettering
- Real estate magazines
- Co-broker and promote listings to over 50,000 local agents in Central Florida
- Home shows
- Store fronts
- Featured on the UK television show, “A Place in the Sun”
- Featured by Reuters on Reuters.com & Reuters.co.uk
- Featured Vacation Home Sales Expert in local newspapers (Orlando Sentinel) and international newspapers
