Marketing Your Home on the Internet

May 11, 2010

MORE THAN 90% OF

HOME BUYERS

BEGIN THEIR SEARCH

FOR A HOME

ON THE INTERNET!

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.

www.remax.com 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!”


DebbieHutchins.com and BobbyFarris.com where you can use the “My HomeFinder” to search for properties, save favorites and even perform an ongoing search of homes within your guidelines!

RealEstateOfGreaterBirmingham.com 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.

The HeartHangers Blog presents your home to the public in a blogger format that is easy to read and can share more detail about your home.  Buyers and Sellers can also find interesting information here to help them with their real estate needs.

Debs Doodles at ActiveRain is an International blogging platform in a real estate based online community designed to promote the real estate industry.  With strong search engine optimization ActiveRain is an excellent way to promote your home to the public by getting it to the 1st page of many search engines.  Debbie has been honored to have several of her posts featured and ranks #1 in Shelby County and #7 in the state of Alabama.

The “HeartHangers” Re/Max First Choice is our Business Page on Facebook which has more than 400 million active users.  Each listing is posted on Facebook which gives it exposure to the many Homebuyers and Realtors.

Postlets.com is an excelent website where we can enter data about your home and automatically create a web flyer with HTML code that can be used to post it various places on the Internet like Facebook and in Blogs.  Poslets also auto sends the listing to various syndicated sites such as Front Door, Google Base, Hot Pads, Oodle, Trulia, & Zillow.

RealEstateBham at Twitter.com is a micro blogging format where we can post links to listings and other related data that is interesting to the real estate home buyer.  Our HeartHanger blog also posts to Twitter here.

We use Tweetlister.com to post listings on an autofeed that posts a link to the tweet page every day.

Trulia.com is an all-in-one real estate site that’s jam-packed with the most useful and timely information on homes for sale, neighborhoods, markets and trends.

All of our listings are auto fed to FrontDoor.com a place to find real estate listings and great articles and videos on how to buy, sell or finance a home.  You can search listings and watch real estate videos on this site that is sponsored by HGTV.

In Celebration of Mothers Day!

May 10, 2010

MOTHERS DAY!  That special day in May when we make a special effort to honor our Mothers and show appreciation for all that they have done for us.

A day of breakfast in bed, being showered with gifts and flowers and many other mementos that show Mom how much she means to you!  For some it is just a phone call or a beautiful card in the mail, for others it can be a large family gathering and special meal prepared together or an easy dinner out in Moms favorite restaurant.

But however it is celebrated it is a very special day that Mom’s look forward to and cherish as their special day to celebrate one of the greatest milestones of their life…the day that they became a Mother.

And as it is celebrated with great respect and love it is also fun to reflect back on the wonderful years of raising children and the many trials and tribulations that comes with it.

And in that light we bring to you some of the famous MOM-ISMS that have evolved over time!

  • Money does not grow on trees.
  • Don’t make that face or it’ll freeze in that position.
  • If I talked to my mother like you talk to me….
  • Always change your underwear; you never know when you’ll have an accident.
  • If someone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?
  • Close that door! Were you born in a barn?
  • If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
  • Don’t put that in your mouth; you don’t know where it’s been!
  • Be careful what you wish for, it might come true.
  • Don’t eat that, it will stunt your growth.
  • Eat that or you will stunt your growth.
  • What’s meant to be, is meant to be.
  • It doesn’t matter what you accomplish, I’ll always be proud of you.
  • I hope that when you grow up, you have kids “Just Like you”!
  • Because I’m your mother that’s why.
  • If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times.
  • Eat your vegetables, there are children in China starving!
  • “Cheer up, the worst is yet to come.”
  • Someday your face is going to stick like that.
  • Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
  • Yes, I AM the boss of you.
  • Because I said so.
  • Just wait till your father gets home.
  • No dessert till you clean off your plate.
  • I brought you into this world and I can take you OUT !!
  • I’ve got eyes in the back of my head!
  • Get that out of your mouth!
  • Don’t stick that in your nose!
  • Just you wait until you have kids of your own – then you’ll understand.
  • I slave for hours over a hot stove and this is the thanks I get?!
  • Honestly… You’d lose your head if it wasn’t screwed on!
  • Bored! How can you be bored? I was never bored at your age.
  • Who will end up walking, bathing and feeding it…?
  • Eat everything on your plate and you will be in the clean plate club.
  • You are going to pay for your raising!

The HeartHangers wishes each and every Mother a Very Special Day!

May you all enjoy the special treatment you receive and may all of the “givers” find special delights in the joy of giving as you show that special someone how very much she means to you!

And enjoy a laugh or two as you read over the Mom-isms and say….”I remember when you use to say that!”

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

Christmas is a time to Thank the Military!

December 22, 2009

Every Christmas when we are enjoying the holidays and being with family and loved ones my heart always goes out to all the ones that are serving in the military and cannot be with their families.

An average group of Americans gathered to publicly thank their United Stated Military for the freedom they provide. If you want to thank your military, pass this video on to every person you know so it will eventually reach every present and former military person across the globe. We want the military to know we appreciate their service and sacrifice!

A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

THAT ARE SERVING IN THE MILITARY

AND TO YOUR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS

THAT ARE MISSING YOU SO MUCH!

“Home is Where You Hang Your Heart”

and our Christmas prayer for you is that you will be able to

“hang your heart” at HOME very soon!

God Bless and Keep You Safe!
