MARKETING PLAN

Janus International Realty takes a very proactive approach to the marketing of properties. We treat your REO listings like full retail listings that need to get the most marketing exposure and follow up possible. We do not just input the listing to the MLS with minimal photos and information like most REO Brokers. We tailor a marketing plan for each REO listing with an emphasis on using the latest technologies on the market. Why is this crucial to an REO listing? You get more offers, a higher selling price and a quicker close. We receive more buyers leads to plug into our database which will make it easier to sell your future listings

  • MLX listing, call capture technology, lock-box, virtual tours, website exposure, exposure to investors and pro-active follow up
  • Foreign investors, first time home buyers, former clients
