A digital revolution
Over the past couple of decades, the digital revolution has profoundly changed all businesses. Whether in commercial processes, payments, customer service, or advertising, business people today need to use the web wisely to survive.
Before digital, Real Estate was a person-to-person business. It still is to a great extent. Realtors need to build trust with home buyers before closing any transaction. Few houses change hands sight unseen or without a physical visit.
However, the digital revolution has found its way into Real Estate. Statistics show that a whopping 93% of all home buyers search for their new home online. Gone are the days of looking at newspapers ads or driving around the neighborhood.
Building online trust
So now, the challenge for realtors is to build the same amount of trust online that they did in person before. Unfortunately, with the web being full of distractors and scams, this is not as easy as it seems. And also, your competition has the same access to the web that you have.
That is why each of your listings, especially the premium ones, needs a single-property website. A single-property website is dedicated 100% to highlighting one property. As a result, potential buyers that visit those websites do not get attracted to competing offers. That attraction frequently happens in Multiple Listing Services (MLS).
