Marketing your home is easier if you target the type of real estate market that exists the day you put your home up for sale. When real estate markets transition from seller's to buyer's markets, agents have to put a lot more time , money and work into selling listings/house/apartment.

“In seller's markets, good marketing can bring higher prices and in buyer's markets it could mean the difference between sold or expired” Explains Eric Mwanzia Founder of Casa Premier a Real estate firm based in Westland’s Kenya.”Good marketing might not sell your house, but it will make the phone ring. Because if buyers don't call, you won't sell.” Says Eric

“An unfortunate aspect of the real estate business is some listing agents wrongly believe that they should only spend money on advertising luxury homes. They don't really believe the smaller transactions are worth an additional expense. Don't hire an agent who thinks this way.” Warns Eric
