Discount or Limited Service brokers can do an adequate job selling real estate.
Promotional costs such as photographs; brochures; magazine and TV ads; MLS
insertion fees; printing; direct mail; personally distributed newsletters; professional
support staff; enhanced web services and fees; electronic marketing; signs; and
more are paid for by a full-service, full-fee agent.
Will the discount broker offer a complete marketing campaign?
Does the discount broker have a staff to personally attend to your specific needs?
Does he/she have a proven track record of success, or is he/she using the discounted commission to win your business?
Does he/she have the expertise to guide you through problems that will develop during the closing process?
Will he/she make themselves available to you when you are in need?
Will the discount broker be motivated during difficult times to go the extra mile for you, or will they move on to another
deal that doesnt take so much of their time?
Your home is an asset to a discount broker and makes their phone ring. If your home sells, they lose business. Why
would they want to sell your home for a discounted fee when they can make more selling other properties?
Remember that you only pay a brokerage fee if and when your property sells successfully. The supply of buyers through your
home will be restricted if marketing is limited.
The KPDD team sells a lot of real estate. Perhaps they are too busy to pay attention
to my listing.
Just as superior restaurants are busy at dinner time and superior doctors have long
patient lists, our success in marketing homes provides us with many more homes to
sell. Like good restaurants and doctors, we have set up a top-flight team to assist
with the routine details to free up agents to devote the time and attention required to
sell your property successfully. We built our business one satisfied customer at a
time. For you to be another satisfied customer who spreads the word about how well you were served is our goal.
You should select the REALTOR who says they can get you the highest price.
This is the oldest scam in real estate: Tell the seller what they want to hear, act excited, and compliment the home to get the
listing. Then ask for a price reduction in a few daysor even a few weeks. Dont buy into that. Insist on a written, well-
researched market analysis. Select your REALTOR based on character, trust, credentials and track record, and then use market
data to decide on price.
KPDD Home Marketing Plan
SO WHAT EXACTLY IS 24-7 MARKETING?
This means that we market your home 24 hours a day, seven days a week. What the consumer wants today is information
quickly, easily, honestly, and without the traditional hassles. Successful marketing hinges on this exact concept and this is
exactly what our 24-7 marketing plan offers.
WHY USE 24-7 MARKETING?
The traditional REALTOR guards information as secret and privileged. Ever tried to find out the information you want on an
advertised home? Frustrating, isnt it?
Our approach is different. Our 24-7 marketing plan is designed to offer the consumer all of the information they need easily and
at their convenience without all the hassles.
AND HOW EXACTLY IS ALL THIS ACHIEVED?
We pledge to you, as our client, to give you enough good information so that you can position your home correctly, against the
competition, in the marketplace. Even in good real estate markets, the competition is tough. Our job is to get you where you
need to be on time. We out-market all of the homes competing for your buyer and we are very good at it. Our proactive
marketing campaign includes, but is not limited to, the following:
