St. Louis Home Selling Process
Eighty nine percent of buyers start their real estate search online* so the plan to sell your home must include proper internet exposure. Our approach is to utilize Web sites beyond sothebysrealty.com and deilmannsothebysrealty.com in an effort to target buyers on the web. Property distribution channels were conceived after conducting research to identify lifestyle, activity and points of interest Web sites where prospective buyers gather real estate information and visit frequently during their home search.
In addition to the websites directly identified by Sotheby’s national marketing team, Dielmann Sotheby’s employs www.listhub.net to distribute our listings to more than 25 varied sites where consumers search real estate listings. Dielmann Sotheby’s understands that visibility is of utmost importance. Listhub provides our listings the highest internet presence possible.
Dielmann Sotheby’s provides each of its listing with a print adverting presence designed for optimal presentation to the desired target market. Showcasing our properties in the St. Louis Business Journal, Ladue News, Webster-Kirkwood times and West End Word provides a reach into the distinct communities of our region.
With 60% of home buyers reporting that they found the home they purchased online or through a realtor, the importance of agent outreach and web communication is paramount. Dielmann Sotheby’s agents contact other realtors by announcing homes for sale, price reductions & agent open houses in an attractive eblast.
