We Do it at No Cost to You

Where will Ed market my Boise area home?

On the Internet

The National Association of Realtors reports that nearly 80% of consumers go online to start their home search–and that percentage grows every year. With that in mind:

  • Your comprehensive, full-color listing is immediately available to over 3,000 area agents through the Intermountain Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Any of their clients who have requested instant listing notifications will receive an email with your listing (where criteria is met).
  • Ed is constantly working to optimize our website to increase the visibility of your home. Once here, users can find your listing in our Featured Properties section.
  • Prospective buyers can access your property listing on hundreds of online portals, including Realtor.com (and all its affiliates), Homefinder.com (associated with The Idaho Statesman), KellerWilliams.com, Zillow, Trulia, Google Base, and many, many more.

Inside Your Home and Around Your Neighborhood

The first step is to place Ed’s FOR SALE sign in your yard. Because of Keller Williams’ reputation in the marketplace, seeing our sign provides buyers and other agents with peace of mind knowing that your home is priced properly and that the transaction will be handled professionally and with integrity.

The visibility for Ed provided by his innovative marketing, print advertisements, public relations efforts and years of experience makes him synonymous with real estate in the area. This means more buyers for your home, more credibility and a better chance of getting the most money in the shortest amount of time.

Because every property is unique (single family homes, commercial property and short sales), Ed evaluates other online and print possibilities. Your suggestions or questions are welcome. After all, it’s your satisfaction that defines Ed’s success!

Using a Personal Touch

After contacting each agent who shows your home, Ed calls, texts or emails you, and provides you with feedback so you can market your home as best as possible.

Ed networks among Keller Williams Boise agents to increase your chances of an early sell. In fact, 40% of Keller Williams real estate listings are sold by Keller Williams agents!

The Bottom Line
