Traffic Graph for

The graph above provided by is another example of why choosing a professional agent to list and sell your home is important in this marketplace. The number of buyers searching for homes has dropped off dramatically since the first quarter of 2006. Pricing your home correctly and marketing it online will help sell your home sooner and at a higher price.

Here are a few things a professional Realtor should do to help sell your home quickly:
1. Add up to 20 professionally taken pictures in the MLS
2. Feature your home on
3. Make a virtual tour of the home with it's own website. This tour should also integrate with and the local MLS so everyone will see it.
4. Promote the listing on Trulia,,, etc...
5. A professionally staged home will also increase its value.

Over 80% of home buyers start their home search online. Choosing the right agent makes a world of difference.
