Considering the beating many local real estate markets are taking right now, selling a home is more than putting a listing in the MLS; smart realtors are using a variety of synergistic sales strategies to ensure their clients’ homes sell relatively quickly, and for an attractive price.
That said, in a competitive marketplace it pays to utilize the most efficient marketing tools available. The Internet is certainly one of the most important lead generation tools we have, but after you’ve started your own Web site, it can be tough to know where to go from there. How can you get more exposure for your properties? Here are 37 places online where you can list a home–starting with a special category for those of us on a shoestring budget.
