2012 was a great year for the Orange County Real Estate market and 2013 is looking like it’s going to be even better. The trend is that there will be more homeowners selling their homes, including owners of high end, luxury homes. Owners of homes worth at least $1 million or more face challenges that owners of homes that are priced at the lower end of the price scale don’t face.
In this post we’re going to cover the most common challenges with selling a luxury home and how luxury homeowners can overcome these challenges.
Find An Experienced Luxury Home Realtor
The first step to effectively selling a luxury home is to hire an experienced Realtor who sells multiple luxury or higher end homes each year.
This is important because, a Realtor with luxury home sales experience will have more connections and experience in dealing with higher end clients compared to the Real Estate Professional who has
only been selling homes on the lower end of the market throughout their career.
Does The Luxury Home Realtor Have Marketing Skills?
Once the right Orange County Realtor, who has experience selling luxury homes has been found, the next step is to make sure that they have adequate online and offline marketing experience. Marketing is the crucial step in generating in the luxury home and selling it quickly.
To verify that a luxury home realtor has the right level of marketing experience an easy way to verify their marketing skills is to type in their in any search engine like Google, Bing or Yahoo and
once results are found these questions should be asked:
- Are the properties they are selling visible on page one of the search engine, especially when you search using keywords like “luxury home” or “Orange County Luxury Home”?
- Does their website have testimonials from happy clients? Are their clients individuals who are well known like celebrities, athletes or actors?
- When you contact the Realtor via email or phone do they call you back personally? Are the accessible and ready to answer your questions?
