Before Listing Your Northern Michigan Home With A Real Estate Firm Consider Their Website

By Ken • January 9th, 2011

Are You Thinking Of Listing Your Home?

Before you make a decision that you are locked into for 6 months, take a look at their website. Today’s real estate buyer’s are looking online for their new home, you can count on it. Even if they drive by and see the property for sale, you can bet they are going home to show their husband, wife, kids, friends, and business associates.  They will do so through use of the internet.

When choosing a firm to sell your Northern Michigan Property, you are essentially enlisting them to market your property and in return for that service, they will receive a commission. You want a firm who embraces the cutting edge marketing technology of the internet.

Some things to consider:

  • Does their website even work? I’ve seen countless real estate websites not function correctly.
  • Does their website load quickly?
  • Do they have a reasonable traffic ranking? To view their traffic ranking, go to and enter their domain name to find out their Alexa Traffic Rank. In fact, do this for each firm you are considering. Sites under 2,000,000 are respectable in terms of traffic they receive. As of today, 1.9.2011, my traffic ranking is 979,335 which is far better than most if not all of the agents in my area.

I realize that today’s home buyers are searching online for property. If you want your property sold, list with Ken Carlson Realty.
