Why You Should Choose an Independent Real Estate Office

“Real estate is local.” How many times have you heard it, or said it?  There is however the Internet and its global reach. The big name brokerages and related franchises are busy creating huge websites at the corporate level and providing a page to their agents.  It takes time to drive visitors to the site, and in turn generate the leads that are then passed down to the local office and then divided up and finally passed to an agent.  This all takes time!!

This strategy might work in the long term. However, the consumer who is online looking for local real estate information will have a lot to say about it. Will their search get lost in the big sites? Will they even find those sites right away first if there is not a lot of local content to reel in their search?  You can always buy traffic with PPC, but the cost is high and the content on the landing page needs to be about the local area on which they searched.1

When you search for real estate in a specific geographic area, you want to be sure that the Realtor that you are contacting knows the area, knows the specific properties, the amenities etc.  You don’t want to be passed from office to office in order to get the requested information.  You want the information quickly and may want to jump on the chance to see a desired property before it is gone!  Contacting an independent local Realtor just makes sense, in essence you are cutting out the middle man.

The Realty Guild is an organization that supports and promotes the independent brokerages.  The Realty Guild was established in 1987 by a small group of independent broker/owners as a forum through which to share ideas. Today the Realty Guild has more than 50 offices with 700 agents covering more than 200 communities in Massachusetts. Through the Realty Guild, members are able to keep their independence yet tap into the power that a larger entity can offer.  The members of the Realty Guild must be Realtors (members of the National Association of Realtors), and must be approved by the membership as a whole.  There is only one member per town, other than in large cities such as Boston.2

Foran Realty is a proud member of the Realty Guild.  Foran Realty Inc. was established in July of 2005 fulfilling the need to bring the “local personal touch” of real estate agencies of the past back to Cape Cod.  Foran Realty, Inc. was established with a primary focus on providing outstanding customer service and a pleasant buying and/or selling experience for our all of our valued clients. They realize that a satisfied customer is what it takes to consummate a sale.  Foran Realty Inc. truly offers the highest level of customer service ever to be experienced on a local level. Their objective is to redefine the real estate buying and selling experience on Cape Cod. 3

Whether you are looking to buy a home or sell your home, contact Foran Realty Inc. today.  They look forward to hearing from you and working to make your real estate dreams come true!

Time to Sell Your Home

When you decide to sell your home, you of course, want the best possible price with the least number of hassles or issues.  The most important result for the majority of sellers is to get that house sold!

In order to accomplish these goals a sWhen you decide to sell your home, you of course, want the best possible price with the least number of hassles or issues.  The most important result for the majority of sellers is to get that house sold!eller must realize the importance of using a real estate agent.  Agents today are changing-technologyaware that technology has changed how a buyer shops for a new home.  According the National Association of Realtors and their most recent “Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers” for the past 3 years, 92% of all buyers have used the internet to search for a home.

The report also revealed that 95% of those buyers shopping online for a home actually purchased their home through a real estate agent/broker or from a builder of builder’s agent.  A minimal 2% actually purchased the home directly from a seller, without knowing them ahead of time.  The buyers are searching online for their new homes, but still rely on the agent to find that specific home that fits their needs, negotiate the terms of the sale, negotiate the price and to help guide them through the process.

There is so much information now available for a buyer to check out, research and read online, that the buyers are keep-calm-and-hire-a-realtorfinding that they need to reach out to a real estate professional in order to sort through it all and connect the relevant dots!  This is obvious as the percentage of overall buyers who used an agent to buy their home has steadily increased from 69% in 2001 to 95% in 2015.

The bottom line is clear.  If you are thinking of selling your home, don’t underestimate the role a real estate agent/broker can play in the process.  They will be there to help you price the home, show the home, market the home and finally guide the seller through the offer, the purchase and sale and finally the closing.  Having an agent/broker by your side has become crucial to the speed and efficiency in which your home can sell.  Call Foran Realty today to see how they can help you sell your home.
