Using Twitter to introduce home buyers to FSBOs
This time of year, most real estate agents are helping sellers prepare their homes for the Spring housing market. But as fee-for-service real estate consultants who specialize in representing buyers, The Real Estate Cafe wants to introduce our clients:
- To sellers BEFORE they list their homes in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), and
- To homeowners who are selling "for sale by owner" (FSBO).
That's why we celebrated the Boston Marathon Monday by updating some buyer profiles from our 1,000 Click Club, a highly-motivated group of buyer clients who have viewed at least 1,000 pages on the MLS. If you're a seller who falls into either category above, we'd be glad to introduce you to our buyers. We assure you that our menu of fees are quite modest by comparison to traditional real estate commissions, and the potential savings are substantial.
For example, one of the buyer / sellers matches we helped earlier this year will save approximately $80,000. We can't guarantee those kinds of savings, but if you're a seller who's struggling to get your home ready for the Spring market, we can offer you three hours of decluttering / organization / home staging for just $99 for three hours (limited offer). We'd also like to invite a limited number of sellers to attend one of our upcoming "for sale by owner" seminars, most likely in Arlington, MA or to schedule an in-home presentation. (One of our dreams is to teach 50 to 100 sellers how to save $1 million as a group. We passed that milestone for buyers during one recent 12 month period, see map of client savings).
We'll publish more buyer profiles, special offers, and seminars for buyers and sellers in the future. You can receive updates by following us on Twitter.com/RealEstateCafe
