Piggybacking on Maureens answer. Your home shows up several thousand times in a simple Google search. This compares to less than 30 for some homes I've seen.
I would agree, follow your contract and speak with Andy to see what social networking sites the home's already advertised on, perhaps you have some that are not being used. It is possible for the wrong information to be placed online that makes your home harder to sell. It's hard to take it back once it's on the internet.
Even though you are represented by an agent, the blog attached to the link below may be of some interest to you. While it is directed to FSBOs, there are some ideas that you possibly could implement to augment your agent's marketing plan. Please always keep your agent abreast of anything you do on your own. BTW feel free to add some input in the comments section on what and how you use the social networking sites that you use. Good luck.
Absolutely!!! It would be best to coordinate with your Realtor what your doing. You should discuss this with him. Andy is a very good Realtor, he will advise you regarding what you should and should not say to prospective Buyers.
Great question, and initiative on your part! To preface, hopefully you hired someone that shares your vision for what should be done to market your home. In the event that is not the case, here is my recommendation... you certainly should be able to! BUT, make sure to read your exclusive right to sell contract and adhere to that verbiage. For instance, the broker is likely protected and owed a commission if anyone is procurred as a result of the broker, OR YOUR EFFORTS. You may be prevented from putting certain signage up, etc., but likely not prevented from giving the house exposure. Importantly, speak with your agent and reach an agreement.
There is no substitute for exposure today, that is for sure! Best wishes.
