Selling a home in todays market means that you should be taking every advantage of all the new marketing channels that are now available.
Real Estate Magazines
In the past, realtors would list their personal listings in the local real estate magazines, and potential buyers would pick up the magazine, and use this as their reference material for searching for their next home. Usually where there was one magazine there were several. That meant that the buyer would pick up all the magazines and look through them all. It also became clear that the most popular magazines were the ones with the color pages and pictures.
These magazines are still available for buyers but recent statistics have shown that 94% of buyers start their search for property online! The internet has become one of the best and easiest places for a prospective home buyer to start their research in to the availability of homes and property in their desired price range and area.
The introduction of search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo made it very simple for buyers to refine their search for real estate in their preferrerd location and now they can search "virtually" from any place in the world as long as they have internet access and some kind of device to view the web pages on.
For someone moving to Nashville from another state, the internet has proven to be a vital piece of the property search process. Just by searching for 'Nashville Real Estate' they are now presented with websites that offer the buyer the ability to do some research on the homes for sale in Nashville.

Getting Your Home Featured

To have your home then featured on our site as a preferred listing gives you the opportunity to have your home seen before all the other homes.
Featured by City and Price
Take a home for sale in Brentwood that is valued at around the $500,000 price point. The buyer would likely be looking at homes just under $500,000 and over $500,000. In the link above you can see that there is a great range of homes available to the buyer. The listings in this site are organised by the most expensive to the least expensive. In this case the most expensive would be $600,000 but if you have a home listed, at say $550,000, you would be featured at the top of the page as a featured listing with TAREG Now your home is being shown first in an appropriate price range which is giving you the first chance at making an impression on that buyer.
Featured by Subdivision
Also, if your home is located in a subdivsion in Brentwood, your home will be featured at the top of the page. For example, if your home is in the Governors Club in Brentwood, then your property would be featured at the top of the page. If your home was the lowest priced, it would still appear as a preffered list and again giving your more exposure than the other homes that are listed in The Governors Club.
