Marketing Your Home on the Internet

May 11, 2010






According to a 2009 study of home buyers  conducted by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) 90% of home buyers begin their search for a home on the Internet.   Eight out of 10 home buyers who used the Internet to search for a home purchased through a real estate agent.  An E consumer is an “Educated Consumer”!  Home buyers that have done extensive research on the Internet are in a better position to make a decision and once they begin the physical search usually decide on the home they would like to purchase  much faster than the buyer that has done no research prior to looking at homes.

When marketing your home The HeartHangers has taken that into account and spends a great deal of time in assuring that your home is fully exposed to the potential home buyers performing their preliminary search on the Internet.

Below is an example of the many ways that we provide a dominant online presence for our clients. is the #1 real estate company website used by home buyers to search for property.  Homebuyers can use this website to look at ALL properties on the market.  “Nobody Sells More Real Estate in the World than Re/Max!” and where you can use the “My HomeFinder” to search for properties, save favorites and even perform an ongoing search of homes within your guidelines! is the website of Re/Max First Choice.  Here a home buyer can search and preview ALL of the MLS and learn valuable information about communities and is a good source of local real estate information.
