This question is posed to the real estate agents out there (or anyone with more experience selling houses than I have):
How effective are real estate websites in the overall marketing strategy? I ask because I’m not thrilled with the job my agent’s been doing, but don’t want to blame her for a slow market.
The majority of her marketing has been on online sources- her personal website, her office’s website, realtor.com, zillow.com, etc. She’s done no advertising in the area paper or held a single open house in the month and a half the house has been on the market.
I have little to no experience with real estate, and so I don’t want to be uncharitable in my dealing with her.
Is online real estate marketing really this effective that it takes the place of things like open houses and print ads?
