If you're selling a home, hiring a real estate agent who acts as a comprehensive marketer is essential – and perhaps it is easy to understand why.

For home sellers, an ineffective marketer may struggle to promote your residence to the right groups of homebuyers. This may cause you to miss out on opportunities to highlight your house to potential property buyers, resulting in a prolonged home selling cycle.

Ultimately, there are many signs that a real estate agent understands what it takes to market your residence effectively, including:

1. A real estate agent is ready to host home showings and open houses.

Home showings and open houses enable property buyers to get an up-close look at your residence. That way, property buyers can envision what life would be like if they purchase your house.

Typically, a real estate agent will want to host as many home showings and open houses as possible This housing market professional will be available to set up home showings at property buyers' convenience. Meanwhile, he or she also will promote open houses via social media and other channels to stir up plenty of interest from potential property buyers.

2. A real estate agent knows how to showcase your residence online.

A real estate agent may insist on hiring a professional photographer to take pictures of your home's interior or exterior. This ensures you can provide homebuyers with crisp, clear images via myriad online channels to show the true beauty of your house.

Moreover, a real estate agent may use Facebook, Twitter and other social networks to promote your residence. Social media enables this housing market professional to reach thousands of potential property buyers and may help you generate significant interest in your home quickly.

3. A real estate agent allocates the necessary time and resources to track his or her marketing efforts.

What good is a marketing campaign if a marketer is unable to define its success? A real estate agent who is a great marketer understands the importance of metrics and will measure his or her marketing successes and failures.

A real estate agent should be able to keep you informed at each stage of the home selling cycle. He or she can provide updates about whether homebuyers are interested in checking out your home and any feedback from homebuyers as well.

In addition, a real estate agent is unafraid to adjust the way that he or she promotes your home. With the right metrics in place, this housing market professional will be able to find out whether homebuyers are interested in your property and modify his or her marketing efforts accordingly.

When it comes to selling your home, working with a real estate agent who knows the importance of effective marketing can make a world of difference. With a successful marketer at your disposal, you can boost your chances of speeding up the home selling process and getting the best price for your house.

What’s the optimal commute time for most people to get to and from work? According to many surveys and research studies, this amount of time is around 30 minutes at the most. The closer you live to your job, the happier you’ll be (that is of course if you do like your job!) If you live further from work, you may think that the bigger house is worth it because of your paycheck. If your commute is miserable, however, you may want to rethink your journey. 


You’ll choose where you live based on a variety of factors including the neighborhood dynamics, the school system and the safety of the area. You may be willing to sacrifice one of these factors to gain another. 


Metropolitan Or The Suburbs? 


Generally speaking, the center of jobs tends to be in metropolitan areas. Yet, better schools and neighborhoods are often seen outside of the city. This makes for longer commute times. Depending upon which city you’re talking about, commute times can vary widely. New York and Los Angeles may beat smaller cities like Cleveland or Kansas City in the average number of minutes that people commute to work.


Don’t Worry, Be Happy 


Your happiness factor is very important when it comes to your living situation and your commute time. Whatever is most important to you should go on the top of your property search list. If you don’t mind spending an hour in the car each way to get to and from work, then you can live a bit farther away without much issue. You’ll also need to add in factors like public transportation, if that’s important to you.   


If you do prefer to take public transportation to get where you need to go, you may need to weigh a few factors. You’ll need to look in areas where trains and buses are more accessible. Living closer to public transportation can often come at a bit of a higher price tag. However, you’ll be able to save some money on the cost of keeping a vehicle. All of these factors need to be kept in mind when you’re beginning your house search and making your wishlist.   


Remember that the area of the country that you choose to live in has an effect on your commute. While some cities have more traffic than others, jobs my be more plentiful in a wider area, making it easier and more affordable to live closer to work. New York City has a much different dynamic than Tulsa, let’s say. 


Working From Home


In the most ideal of situations, maybe your commute is only to your home office! In this case, you’ll only need to be mindful of how far it is to get to the places you need to visit most often. You’ll also want to find a home that has a good space for you to have your office in. 


We all need to work in order to pay for the beautiful homes that we own. Why not make it much easier to get to and from work, and be mindful of commute times in your home search? With today’s technology, it’s a whole lot easier to get this information, so do your research! Happy house hunting!
