Marketing Your Home the Katronis Way
Your home is different than your neighbour’s home and it’s different from the home two blocks away. That’s why we offer our home sellers customized marketing plans. We provide our clients’ homes with maximum exposure so they can sell quickly and for top dollar. From signage to social media, we use many marketing channels beyond the Multiple Listing Service (MLS®).
We’ve seen first-hand how a poor image online can make or break a sale. For this reason alone, we insist on showcasing our seller’s homes with pictures taken by the industry’s best real estate photographer. Depending on the type and size of your home, we offer a range of photo packages that include accurate square footage measurements, floor plans, as well as 360 Virtual Tours, 3D Walk-Thru Tours, and Drone Footage.
Our dedicated marketing department is on top of the latest digital trends. They monitor your listing on the MLS®, www.Realtor.ca, www.katronisrealestate.com, and hundreds of other websites. Additionally, your listing will be featured in our electronic e-Newsletter which is sent monthly to a database of over 8,000 prospects. We also use strategically targeted Facebook ads and have a strong following on social media.
Exclusive Buyers Network
With over 35 years of experience helping individuals sell and buy their homes, we can assure you that people are always looking to upgrade, change, or downsize their homes. Over the years, we’ve developed an exclusive database containing over 8,500 potential buyers to draw upon when we're selling your home.
An open house is an optional service we offer, on your terms. Not everyone likes them, but an open house can be an important part of marketing your home. Instead of having 10 showings at different times throughout a week, we arrange for buyers to visit your home during a two-hour period, so you only have to prepare your house once!
We understand that price is important to you. Your listing price directly affects how many buyers will consider your property. Once we know your objectives for selling, and what you want to achieve, we will present you with a customized strategy to obtain the highest possible price in the current market.
We drive traffic to the featured listings on our website through advertising on the radio station Praise (106.5 FM), which has a listening base of 200,000+ listeners in Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. Never underestimating the value of good advertising on established channels, we also promote our website on the Praise Facebook page, which has 90,000+ followers.
To be a successful real estate company for over three decades, you have to play by the rules and market good listings. The Katronis Real Estate Team has a well-earned reputation for working hard, doing our due diligence, and dealing fairly. This is particularly important in real estate, where competing offers and other factors can turn a deal sideways. We pride ourselves on maintaining good relations with other real estate agents.
Bi-weekly Realtor Tours
During exclusive bi-weekly tours for Realtors®, our team members never miss an opportunity to pitch our home listings to other Realtors®, as every Realtor® knows a potential home buyer looking for their next house, town home, or condo.
A big part of our job as your Realtor® is to spread the word that your home is for sale. We use all available marketing channels to showcase your listing, including quality printed materials. In the targeted geographical area of Cloverdale and the entire Fraser Valley, we circulate your home in our monthly Katronis Newsletter, our open house flyers, and ads in the Cloverdale Reporter.
For showings and open houses, our graphic designer creates tasteful booklets for potential home buyers to take home with them. These booklets incorporate our professional photography, floor plans and accurate square footage measurements.
Quintessentially, the yard-for-sale sign is a key component when selling your home. A Katronis Real Estate “for sale” sign will be professionally installed in front of your home to withstand the weather. In addition, we strategically place pointer signs in your neighbourhood to alert potential home buyers that your home is on the market.
Whether you’re waiting for a bus or driving, bus shelters and bus benches are eye catching. We consistently advertise this way to build upon our established brand name and communicate to potential home buyers in Cloverdale, South Surrey, and Langley. Street advertising keeps our name top of mind for home buyers.
