The 3 most frequently asked questions sellers ask us:
The answers to these questions vary from REALTOR® to REALTOR®. Below are just a few of the things we do when you choose to list your home with Boston Green Realty.
Accurate Pricing & MLS
Accurate pricing sells homes! Price your home too high and your home won’t sell. Drop your price and people wonder why your home is not selling and you look desperate. We are committed to making sure your home enters the market with the right price so you get maximum interest in your home from the start. More interest in your home from a larger number of Buyers could lead to multiple offers or selling faster and for more money!
MLS (multiple listing service)
Newly listed homes receive the most amount of hits in the first few days. So it’s important to recognize that from the minute your property hits the MLS marketplace its needs to be at its peak presentation. List it with bad photos or inaccurate information and interest goes down immediately and potentially permanently. Alternatively, entering the listing with completed and accurate data, along with an attractive/creative description and beautiful photos pays its self out quickly by attracting attention. The first time a potential buyer sees your home it will be online. Whether that is through our website, Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia or some other site, it all starts with the MLS. We are committed to MLS Listing Quality. This means we make sure your property is entered into the MLS correctly the FIRST time. Done properly, you will have the possibility of many more Buyers competing for your property giving you more offers and options to pick from!

Professional Photos & Drone Photography*
In today’s tech savvy world, all Buyers start their search online. That means your home’s first impression is through pictures. Low-quality photos or photos that do not compliment your home will turn off any potential buyers and result in less showings. When a Buyer sees your home online, the photos should make them want to come and see your home in person. You want the photos to be professional, high quality / high resolution, clear and crisp and show off your home’s best qualities. We offer photography services to all of our clients, because they know how to showcase your home to attract more Buyers and showings.
Virtual Tours are proven to bring buyers into your home and weed out potential looky-loos. Showings can be stressful and time consuming for your whole family. Using a virtual tour can save you time and money by giving potential Buyers a preview of your home thereby weeding out Buyers who would normally waste your time and efforts. Full motion virtual video tours create maximum interest to increase Buyer curiosity drawing more showings by serious, pre-approved Buyers.
Did you know that networking is the fastest way to get your home in front of thousands of potential Buyers? Social media is important to getting your home maximum exposure. We actively network on all of the major social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, Google, Linkedin, Instagram, Youtube and more. Once your property goes on the market, we announce it via these online platforms and then keep marketing it to update the status and keep it fresh in the public eye.
Single Property Landing Pages
We offer our sellers Single Property Websites for signature properties that are unique and have features beyond what MLS can display. A lot of green and/or sustainably built homes have additional features that need to be highlighted or videos of it being constructed. This would mean that your home gets its own web page, which can be shared with your friends and on Social Media! This page is dedicated to showcasing your home’s best features and includes large high quality photos, school information, maps & directions, additional details and more. We also use this page to help market your home and get it out to the pubic so that potential Buyers are dazzled with their first impression of your house!
