Locating the Right Property For You

By | How We Serve Buyers | No Comments

Have you ever worked with a real estate agent who showed you where to search for properties then told you to call them when you find what you want to see? That’s what we’d call Level 1 service. We are recommended highly by our past buyer clients because we provide a much higher level of property search services!

Yes, we provide an MLS® search page on our site, but we do more for our buyers. We provide help in knowing how to use the search for optimal results, including explaining some of the information fields and real estate jargon.
From our search page you can request more information on any listings of interest with a quick and simple form.
Once we know the characteristics and neighborhoods that you want for your property, we create a custom search for you that will alert you with emails when new listings that meet your criteria hit the market. It will also alert you to price reductions.
Start now by giving us your property criteria in the form here and we’ll set up your custom search today!

We want our sellers to have every advantage in listing and selling their Mountain View real estate property. This includes early and ongoing access to all properties listed in the Mountain View real estate MLS® through our search page. You’ll be searching listings for all MLS® participating real estate brokerages, and you can watch the market daily if you want to see new listings coming on the market and those posting price reductions. You can do these searches right here on this page.

Better yet, why come back to this site everyday just to search listings? Sure, we love having you here, but part of our job is to help our sellers to efficiently evaluate, market and sell their homes. The first step in this process is our custom search and alert system. Fill in the easy form on this page and we’ll set up a custom search with your property’s characteristics. You will then receive automated email alerts of new matching listings and price reductions. It’s easy, automatic, and you’ll be on top of the market every day without doing a search!

Homes that are currently on the market are changing all of the time. Real estate agents from around the Bay Area are constantly updating and adding new listings and removing listings after a home has sold. The most accurate data is available from your local real estate agent who can check their MLS® database and update you as to the status of any property.

How We Market Your Home Online

By | Sellers | No Comments

Let’s cut through the hype you may be seeing as regards Internet marketing of Mountain View real estate. Sure, every brokerage worth its salt has a website. And, our website is better than most in presenting our seller listings to showcase them to their greatest potential. And, we’re really good at all of that SEO, Search Engine Optimization, stuff. That’s the stuff we do on our site to get as high in search engine results as possible to get the most in search engine visitor traffic.

However, hyping up this SEO and site traffic is really ignoring the reality of the Internet and any single website’s visibility; unless you’re Yahoo or Google. There is no single real estate website that’s likely to enjoy more than a single digit percentage of searches performed by buyers looking for local properties. That’s because there are hundreds or thousands of real estate sites and they’re all fighting for searchers, but these searchers are also using a half dozen search engines or other resources to locate real estate in our area.

Why tell you this? We want you to learn about the power of “syndication,” and why we spend significant resources, time and effort in syndicating your listing information to a great many real estate websites much larger and more heavily visited than any local real estate websites. We have systems in place to have your listing on dozens of websites, including Yahoo, Trulia, Zillow, and others, and within days of your listing going live.

So, although we’re getting great search engine exposure, we’re not relying on it to be our only resource to sell your home through online marketing. Each of those sites to which we syndicate your listing will have links back to the original and complete listing at our website. It’s there that we shine in marketing your Mountain View real estate property once we’ve attracted visitors from these other sites.

  • We take a full and expert suite of professional quality images of your home. These images will showcase your property and are critical to Internet marketing. Surveys prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that buyers value high quality images more than any other feature of real estate listings.
  • Virtual tours when appropriate are created for your property. Some properties are better marketed with still photographs, others with a slide show of stills, and some with a video and voice–over. We’ll work with you to produce the very best marketing approach for your property.
  • Thorough professionally written text descriptions and very thorough MLS® information fields to bring every facet of your property to the prospective buyer.
  • Once a buyer gets to our site from these many conduits, we don’t just let them look and leave. We offer showings and other special information about the market and your property in exchange for their contact information. If we can get into direct contact with them, it’s going to increase our chances of selling your property to them.
