Minnesota Real Estate and Management is thrilled to announce our new partnership with Homes.com! This collaboration marks an exciting step forward in our commitment to providing exceptional service to both sellers and buyers in the real estate market. After carefully studying the new platform and meeting with their representatives, I am convinced this will be a valuable step forward in our seller marketing and quite frankly provides a much better experience for potential buyers.

Over the years, I have refused to buy leads (I have never paid for one!) and support what I see as an uncomfortable experience for buyers and sellers. We always ask ourselves one question: What is the best interest of our clients? Every decision stems from that question. I expect when Home.com gets the momentum, they will force sites like Zillow, Redfin, and Realtor.com to make some needed changes in the best interest of the industry. This is, of course, my personal opinion, but as I have said many times technology will continue to create opportunities and alter the way we market and do business. Everything should be focused on the value we bring to sellers and buyers.

We are genuinely enthusiastic about this marketing partnership for several reasons. Following a thorough evaluation of the platform, its new ownership, and its marketing strategies, we are confident that Homes.com will seamlessly integrate into our selling strategy, enhancing our ability to connect sellers with motivated buyers.

One of the primary reasons for our excitement stems from Homes.com’s reputation for providing a superior and more streamlined experience for potential buyers. They have billions of dollars backing them and I believe they will deliver on their claims.  While the cost of participation is significant for real estate brokerages, we firmly believe that the benefits for our clients will far outweigh any associated expenses. We anticipate significant advantages for our sellers who choose to list with us through this partnership.

Here are just some of the core benefits that Homes.com offers for sellers listing with Minnesota Real Estate and Management:

  1. Expanded Reach: With Homes.com’s extensive online presence and user-friendly interface, our listings will reach a broader audience of potential buyers, increasing visibility and driving interest in our properties.
  2. Targeted Advertising: Through targeted advertising campaigns way beyond the Homes.com’s platform, we can get maximum exposure for our listings.
  3. Seamless Integration: Homes.com’s integration with our existing systems and processes will streamline the listing management process, saving time and resources for our team while ensuring accuracy and consistency across all platforms.

For buyers seeking their dream lake home in the central Minnesota, working with Minnesota Real Estate and Management through Homes.com offers several key advantages:

  1. There are two things I love about this platform when it comes to working with buyers. 1) They are not hounded by umpteen realtors all scrambling because they gave their information and became a purchased lead (what as unprofessional and uncomfortable experience for all involved­) 2) For those buyers who do want to work directly with  a brokerage as a buyer agent- they have great seamless tools for direct communication, asking questions, and setting up showings.
  2. Comprehensive Listings: Homes.com provides a comprehensive database of listings in the central Minnesota area, making it easy for buyers to explore available properties and find the perfect fit for their needs and preferences. Like all websites they are integrated with the MLS.
  3. Advanced Search Filters: With Homes.com’s advanced search filters, buyers can narrow down their options based on specific criteria such as price range, property type, location, and amenities, simplifying the home search process.
  4. Real-Time Updates: Homes.com’s platform offers real-time updates on new listings and price changes, ensuring that buyers have access to the latest information and opportunities as soon as they become available.
  5. Expert Guidance: By partnering with Minnesota Real Estate and Management, buyers gain access to our team of experienced and knowledgeable agents who can provide expert guidance and support throughout the home buying process. Communication can be done right through the app if buyers prefer.

I am genuinely excited about the new partnership between MN Real Estate and Management and Homes.com! It is a step forward in our ongoing commitment to delivering exceptional service and results for our clients. Whether you’re a seller looking to maximize exposure for your property or a buyer searching for your dream lake home, we invite you to experience the benefits of working with us through this exciting new collaboration.
