Our Virtual Office is Here!
At Royal LePage Team Realty, we are committed to being an innovative, industry leader in the ever evolving Real Estate business. With the every growing technology and tools in the real estate industry now at our (and the public’s) fingertips we know that most buyers and sellers searches start online. We are excited to officially introduce our new Virtual Office Website www.findottawarealestate.ca! As the first major brokerage in Ottawa to offer our preferred clients access to sold data, not only will this website add value for buyers and sellers to research communities and home values, but also a huge potential to be a lead generation tool and help Royal LePage stay top of mind when they are ready to buy or sell.
How to Use www.findottawarealestate.ca with your Clients
The industry has changed significantly in recent years and with the access to listings online, many buyers are beginning the process and narrowing their search online from the comfort of their own home. Access to sold data will simply assist them in this part of their search. As a Royal LePage Team Realty sales representative, you can encourage your clients to use this resource to help them with their own research but remind them that you are always there to assist and discuss what they have found.
While it is still very important to complete a full CMA for any property that you are listing, this website can assist you is showing your sellers exactly how you came to the results. Sellers will be able to see first hand the sold data for their neighbourhood and will be able to compare their own property to others that have recently sold. While there is a lot more that goes into a CMA, this will allow Sellers to feel involved in the process and will allow them access to information that they have never had before.
Whether you are working with Buyers or Sellers, it important to pitch www.findottawarealestate.ca as a value added for working with a Royal LePage Team Realty sales representative.
How It Works:
Anyone with an email address can log on to the website in a few simple steps. We ask a couple of key questions and then they must verify their email before gaining access to the database. The process is simple and you can assure your clients that signing up will not result in a ton of spam and other unwanted marketing; it’s just not who we are!
All users are asked if they are currently working with an agent so you can rest assured that if you send clients to this site, they will not be receiving solicitations from anyone else. Leads that are obtained through this site will be distributed in a fair process. This is a great opportunity for Royal LePage Team Realty to gain leads and we look forward to sharing them with you.
Once a preferred client has registered, they will have access to sold data from the Ottawa Real Estate Board for the last 2 years and full details on each listing including the sold price (and how that compares to asking), how many days it spent on market, and the full listing details. For privacy reasons, conditional sale information, room dimensions, and interior photos are not included. Encourage both your buyers and sellers to browse this information as the knowledge gained will help guide them in their search. This TRANSPARENCY will help clients feel empowered in what can sometimes be a very overwhelming process.
