Professional Level Real Estate Marketing for Your Home

Professional level marketing can increase a home's sale price between $900 to over $100,000 according to this Wall Street Journal Article.  The infogrpahic below summarizes the WSJ post and proves that hiring a realtor who firmly believes in professional level marketing can put thousands more in a seller's pocket.  This quality doesn't cost any more than hiring an agent who spends 15 minutes using a point and shoot camera, or worse, their iphone.

The Terry Burger real estate team has developed the "marketing monster" reputation in part because Terry's hobbies include video, photography, creative arts, and search engine marketing.  Combine those gifts with his negotiation skills and you have a real estate agent that firmly believes every seller deserves marketing worthy of magazine quality work.

The Terry Burger team has amassed over $10,000 worth of professional grade photograpy and lighting equipment, and they know how to use it.  The first and most important piece of gear is the Canon 5D Mark III DSLR camera, the standard for professional photographers across the globe.   This beast of a camera is mated with a 16-35mm wide angle lens that's sure to capture every nuance of a home's critical space. When a space is properly captured, it peaks a buyer's interest, resulting in more showings, and in the end, potential multiple offers.

Terry says the market cannot speak "true" unless a house is promoted to its fullest potential. That potential not only means the finest photography and video on the market, but also successful integration of print media, social media, website distribution, and a network of agents from multiple brokerages that trust Terry's reputation for the highest quality real estate inventory on the market.
