LATEST TRENDS IN
REAL ESTATE MARKETING USING THE INTERNET
According to the

of Home Buyers and Sellers Survey two-thirds of home buyers
expect to use the Internet in their next home purchase! That
number is expected to rise to 80% by 2005.

“Real estate brokers are seriously looking at Internet marketing in a
way they never did before, and their timing is extremely good," said
Blanche Evans, editor of Realty Times, an Internet news service
that follows the residential real estate market. Their customers
are online more than ever.
very few people actually buy their homes online, but according to the
National Association of Realtors, the trade group for brokers and
agents, 41% of consumers last year used the internet to research homes
before making a purchase - equal to the number of percentage of
consumers using newspapers for that purpose. The number of online
shoppers expected to rise significantly when the association releases

is a quick attraction that induces a prospective buyer to seek out the
seller and find out more. For lower priced items, an advertisement
can produce quick sales. This is not the purpose of a real estate
website, nor is it viewed as such by real estate professionals that
are markedly increasing sales through use of marketing themselves and
their listings on the internet.
A website is
simply a tool - owned by you - the agent. You don't own your
advertisements - the advertiser owns them, produces them and
determines when they will begin, end and where they will appear. A
website is something you control and is an ongoing tool used for
communication with potential buyers. If you don't use it as often as
you use your telephone, it won't work.
In my opinion, a
static website that sits unchanged on the internet, waiting for web
visitors to click away - is useless and a waste of money. An
incomplete site or one with errors and slow loads – loses money.

disappointed about your web site? You are not alone. Although so
many realtors already are on the Internet, a vast majority of real
estate web sites don't bring any results.
Because they are designed to impress rather than to generate
contacts. And on the Internet real estate sales is STILL the contact
sport. No people contacting you = no people in your pipeline. And
that means no transactions.
