Selling Your Log Cabin in Gatlinburg, TN
If you are contemplating the sale of your investment log cabin, there are a few things to consider in choosing the right agent for you and your property. Generally speaking, most log cabin owners are what we call absentee-owners. Simply put, they do not live here locally. Having said that, the same holds true for a large majority of the buyers. Many are making contact with Realtors and Real Estate Companies from all over the country. How do you determine which one is best for you?
Log Cabin Specialist
You need one. What is a Log Cabin Specialist? It is an agent that is 1) seasoned in all facets of selling real estate, 2) has great follow-up and communication skills, 3) has established relationships with property management companies, lenders, and inspectors, and 4) has a strong internet presence to market your property GLOBALLY.
The best way for a buyer or seller to find an agent that would be considered a Log Cabin Specialist is to refer to Google. Well over 80% of ALL property searches are done online, for weeks before ever contacting a Realtor. The most effective and successful Realtors will know this fact and position themselves online to take advantage of it. The single most important factor when selling an investment cabin is EXPOSURE. Exposure, Exposure, Exposure. This means that simply having an agent put your log cabin in the MLS is not enough.
Why List With Me?
There are several reasons. In the above paragraph I listed 4 things to look for when choosing a Realtor to list your log cabin. The first 3 points are hard to determine. One way to do so is by looking for reviews. Reviews can be tricky though. There are very few sites that have true, unadulterated reviews. You can also look for testimonials posted online by past clients. The 4th point is very easy to determine. Again, we refer to Google. You want to know that the Realtor you choose can market your cabin in a number of areas to the vast majority of the population. A simple test is to just go to Google and perform some searches. Search as if you were a buyer looking for a log cabin in Gatlinburg. You are looking for a trend. An agent or agent/s that continue to place in the top 3 search results.
