Why Sell With Kevin?
As a Carpenter Realtor®, Kevin offers an exclusive, Home Marketing System that exposes your home to maximum potential buyers possible. It’s a proven system, providing wide exposure for your home, from complete internet presence to “home for sale” mass media and online advertising.
No one else has as comprehensive a program as Carpenter. Not only do we help develop an effective pricing strategy for your home’s sale, but we will advertise and market your home more aggressively than anyone. Your home will be visible and seen by more prospective buyers. If you’re being told that setting a price and putting a sign in your yard is most of the work … and that a broker’s own website will do the rest, you’re only getting a third of the story.
CallCarpenter.com – The Call Carpenter is one of the most-visited sites for local home searches, provides detailed information about your property and your neighborhood. More complete more detailed and more user-friendly, it’s the information buyers are looking for in an easy-to-use format.
Mobile App – We all know that buyers select homes in a neighborhood in which they want to live. The Carpenter mobile has an exclusive feature that makes finding that perfect home easier. As buyers drive through your neighborhood, the HomeSpotter GPS locates the buyer GPS position and displays complete details about homes for sale (and recently sold). Then they can quickly download details on your home or have your home suggested as an option while they look at other nearby homes!
Local and national internet exposure – We all know home buyers use the internet to search for homes. What we don’t know is which website the future buyer of your home is using. Your home receives exposure through dozens of national websites such as trulia.com Realtor.com, frontdoor.com, zillow.com, google, Yahoo!, ReloHomeSearch.com, homes.com and local websites. No one exposes your home to buyers on more real estate search sites than Carpenter. No one. If a home buyer is online, they’ll find your home.
trulia.com and HomeFinder.com – Trulia.com is the second-largest, fastest-growing national real estate search web site. homefinder.com is the real estate website for two hundred major daily newspapers. We enhance every Carpenter listing on both, reaching 20 million+ buyers each month. Carpenter listings are featured homes: more photos, more details, more contact information. This generates more online showings, more calls for information and more activity on your home.
V-Screen Tours – An exclusive agreement with V-Screen, provides every Carpenter listing with a complete virtual tour package. This includes a guided tour through your home featuring motion and music. More exposure via more outlets means more potential buyers for your home.
Your Own Website – Kevin can also create a customized, personal website for your home. Imagine sharing www.1234MainSt.com with your friends and neighbors, and imagine the additional exposure your home receives.
Indianapolis Star Open Houses – Some may have you believe that “newspaper is dead,” that “no one reads newspapers any more.” Well, there are a half-million adults who do read the Indianapolis Star each Sunday, many of whom are buyers looking for the day’s open houses. Carpenter is the only company advertising every open house every Sunday in Indiana’s largest circulation newspaper. We don’t believe you can afford to miss these potential buyers.
