On Roatan or Utila when you consider Selling your property there are several things to think about.
With the innovation of the modern real estate company, Like the RE/Max franchises here on Roatan Bay or when you list your property for sale it does not necessarily mean that the company you list with, themselves will sell your property.
What you need is a company that will MARKET your property.
Where does the company you are considering rank on web site searches for real estate on search engines like Google and Yahoo? That is where most clients start the purchase process. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. People looking for property seldom get past the top few companies in any search engine.
“No One Sells More Real Estate than RE/MAX”. RE/Max offers an International web site representing 110 counties ! Add to that Regional Web site for both the Caribbean & Central America and THREE company web sites that depending on your search criteria can ALL end up ion the first page of a Google search! We work closely with “International Living” Magazine and advertise in the Classifieds section. Add that to the ONLY MLS in the Caribbean and Central America and we market electronically with the best!
Do they communicate? Do you send email responses in hours not days? When they show your property do they communicate with you about that showing? Give input?
Will your property be promoted in print? Do they publish and distribute printed materials?
Do they send out Newsletters to people? Communications is an important consideration. (Our subscriber list is almost 12,000!)
Do they send them at regular intervals? (We have done them monthly for 15 years!).
Do they send out hot deals to their client base?
Will it be on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service)?
What is the difference between a REALTOR® and a real estate agent?
Do they produce results?
All of these should be considerations.
Bottom line ? Choose wisely. Make sure they have a ton of experience and knowledge. The longer they are on the island the more history regarding property sales they have. Always a plus.
