WHY DOES REALTOR.CA SHOW THE SAME LISTING TWICE?

Unlocking Maximum Exposure for Your Listing: Why Realtors Expand Their Reach

Have you ever scrolled through Realtor.ca and stumbled upon two identical listings, wondering why they’re duplicated? Let’s delve into why this isn’t just a glitch or oversight, but actually a crucial indicator of a fantastic Realtor. We’ll explore why it’s a crucial step for Sellers to broaden their reach beyond local real estate boards.

Understanding the Real Estate Board Dynamics

As a Realtor, I’m part of the Lakelands Real Estate Board, serving the picturesque Southern Georgian Bay region. However, here’s the catch: Listings I post on this board are only visible to fellow Realtors who are members of the Lakelands Board. This means that if you’re working with an agent in Toronto, they might miss out on your property listing if it’s exclusively posted on the Lakelands Board.

The Importance of Broadening Reach:

Now, why is this significant? Well, consider this scenario: You’re selling your home in Southern Georgian Bay, but you want to attract buyers from the bustling city of Toronto. To ensure your property garners attention from potential Toronto buyers, your listing needs to be visible on the real estate boards they frequent.

Going Beyond Local Boundaries:

Enter the strategy of joining and listing on multiple real estate boards. By expanding my reach, I can ensure that your property gets maximum exposure, not only locally but also to potential buyers in neighbouring cities and beyond.

The Client’s Perspective vs. the Realtor’s Reality:

It might seem counterintuitive, especially when you, as a client, can view all listings on Realtor.ca regardless of the board they’re posted on. However, for us Realtors, our access is limited to the boards we’re affiliated with. This discrepancy highlights the importance of strategic listing decisions to ensure your property reaches its full potential audience.

Elevating Your Listing Strategy:

So, the next time you spot duplicate listings of the same property, know that your Realtor is employing a proactive listing strategy to maximize exposure. As a seller, this is something you should prioritize—a non-negotiable aspect of your listing process.

In the dynamic world of real estate, reaching the right audience is paramount. By expanding my reach beyond local boundaries, I can unlock new opportunities for your property and ensure it receives the attention it deserves, including from Toronto buyers. When choosing a Realtor, consider their approach to listing strategy and how they plan to maximize exposure for your home. After all, a broader reach means more potential buyers, and ultimately, a better chance of selling your property quickly and at the right price.
