Our Market Place

Our Market Place
Did you know 95% of home buyers start shopping for their new home on the internet?
Home Sweet Home Realty takes internet marketing very seriously!
In fact, we continue to invest thousands and thousands of dollars on the internet year after year, ensuring you're getting maximum exposure!

We advertise both on line and in print to ensure your home gets maximum
exposure and a better chance of selling FAST!

How many places can you expect your property to get such exposure?
Think about it....if you have an agent that works for a big firm, that agent is responsible for the advertising, not the brokerage. Typically, the brokerage may only pay for a couple of ads when an agent gets a new listing, the other ad dollars come directly from the agent. If the market is slower than normal and sales are down, the agent may not have the disposable income to run a ton of ads or pay to ad search engines to their repertoire, especially if the brokerage takes a large percentage of each sale to help pay franchise and office fees. I have personally dedicated 60% of EVERY dollar I've earned back into the company. The Result...tons of search engines and fantastic results for my clients!
Not to mention, referrals, referrals, referrals!
I take great pride in the number of places we advertise! We're adding all the time!

One of the most popular search engines! Home Sweet Home Realty has the fancy smancy package where your listing will appear as a featured listing if a consumer is looking in a particular area and price range. In addition, there is a headline, scrolling text, pictures AND a tour! Realtor.com gets over a million hits a week!!! All real estate listings that are on the MLS (multiple listing service) are on Realtor.com, however, if you're not a member, only the boring tax description will appear on the listing and it will be way back in the inventory of listings. Not as HSHR...we like front and center exposure!
