Real Estate Marketing Plans – Customized to Suit Your Goals
Thornton Properties believes in taking a multi-faceted approach to marketing your property. As you will see below, we penetrate all sectors of the buying market through a variety of mediums. Each selling situation is different and we tailor our real estate marketing plans to your specific needs and desires.
MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICE (MLS)
Immediately after you agree to engage a Thornton Properties agent to sell your home, your agent creates a detailed listing profile of your property for sale in the MLS, the largest Realtor® database in Illinois – close to 40,000 registered brokers.
Company signs promote a professional and established selling environment. Buyers like to visit their desired neighborhood and will call to see your property as a result of seeing a 'For Sale' sign. As a matter of fact, 40% of buyers come from site signs.
FEATURED LISTING SHEET
Our agents create and provide professional listing sheets for buyers who visit your property. This helps buyers to remember the details of your property as well as have easy access to Thornton Properties’ contact information in the event they have questions or want to present an offer.
'JUST LISTED' POSTCARDS
Soon after listing your property, your agent sends 'Just Listed' postcards to your neighborhood and building, advertising your property to the local community.
Your agent will hold an open house of your property according to your individual marketing plan. Open house dates and times are subject to your approval prior to scheduling.
Over 90% of homebuyers search online before scheduling a single showing. We recognize this trend and post your property on multiple websites including: ThorntonProperties.net, MLSNI.net, Craigslist.org, HotPads.com, Postlets.com, ChicagoTribune.com and others that are pertinent to your particular property.
PHOTOGRAPHY & VIRTUAL TOURS
Our agents take photos of your property, in many cases with a professional photographer, to showcase on listing sheets and Internet postings. Buyers are more likely to view a listing that has multiple photos. We can also professionally produce a virtual tour of your home if we feel it is a viable option to promote the sale of your property. Again, buyers are more likely to view an Internet listing that has a virtual tour.
Our agents are encouraged to visit each property listed with Thornton Properties in order to spread the word of your property to their network of clients, agents and personal contacts.
Our marketing strategies are designed to move properties and get top dollar in today’s competitive market. If you’re thinking about listing a property, contact Thornton Properties – we’re the real deal when to comes to selling Chicago real estate and South Loop properties.
