Selling Your Home in Bozeman

If you want Buyers to fall in love with your home, you first need to show them why you loved it. The following is how we go about making sure that happens.


Make your home stand out

Today’s technology makes it easier than ever for consumers to view any listing on the market. As agents, we can enter a home into the MLS, click a button, and watch it automatically appear on Zillow, Trulia, etc.

Unfortunately, that can also make it harder for Buyers to distinguish one listing from another. After a certain point, they all tend to look the same.

We wanted our listings to stand out from the crowd, so we decided to keep pushing.

The following is a very basic run-down of how we do it.


Media

If there is one thing we know for sure, it’s that Buyers want to see rich media… and lots of it.

Every listing we take receives professional photography; that’s been a standard of ours for years. We can also provide an amazing 3D Tour and when the listing needs some additional story telling, we’ll shoot video for it as well.

We’ve partnered with the right professionals to make sure our listings have every advantage we can provide over the competition.


Property Stories

Your home is special, so the way it’s presented should reflect that.

You don’t just have a “3BD 2.5BA w/fnshd bsmnt”.

Your porch is where you “sit and watch the rain on a warm summer night”.

Your kitchen has “Frank Lloyd Wright inspired, Kitchen Craft cabinetry”.

When guests step into your home, they “enter a room with vaulted ceilings, wrought iron balusters, an open loft, and that beautiful barn door”.

If Buyers hear your home’s story, they’ll fall in love with it too.

We’ll tell them that story.


Titles

I know it sounds insignificant and a little strange… but we’ve found that Buyers love the titles we give our listings.

They don’t want to tell their friends that they’re buying 123 Main Street.

They get to tell them all about “The Unicorn Ranch”, “The Wow Factory”, “Olde Town Pinnacle”, or “The Pinterest House”.

The house they’re buying is special.


Our Website

The biggest reason we’re able to tell your Property Story is because we can control the presentation of it on our website.

The MLS, listing portals, and most broker sites all pretty much follow the same standard formatting. We’re not given the freedom to change too much on sites we don’t control.


Facebook Marketing

Now that we’ve created your amazing Property Story, how do we get Buyers to our website to see it? We employ a few different strategies, but chief among them is Facebook Marketing.

Over a period of just one year, our Facebook ads were seen over 2,000,000 times. Yes, we said Two Million.

We understand people don’t go to Facebook to buy a home. But we know the people who are buying homes are on Facebook.

More than once, we’ve heard stories like: “We weren’t looking to buy a home, but we saw your listing on Facebook and realized we had to have it”.

Come join the fun and give us a Like.


Results

But what you really want to know is: Does it make a difference?

You betcha.

We know that the best way to make sure your home sells for its full value is to make it look great and show it to a lot of people.

Our Property Stories gave our Sellers that advantage.

That’s why more than half of those listings sold within the first week.

And why more than half of them sold at, or above, list price.

Not to mention that we set a few neighborhood sales records along the way.

My wife and I used Jody Savage for the sale of our home in Gallatin Gateway, MT. Jody was exceptional in all phases of our sale. We had multiple offers over asking price and sold our home in two days! Jody uses up to date modern marketing, was extremely professional and knowledgeable regarding our market and addressing our needs. She was great to work with and very responsive to any questions we had. Jody is the best in the business and we highly recommend her services!

G & B

Jody Savage is knowledgeable, trustworthy and tireless. I purchased a property this spring (2017) near Bozeman; Jody represented me as well as the seller in the transaction. Jody led me through the entire process because this was the first property I had ever purchased. HOA complications and other details made the purchase more difficult. Jody undertook a boat-load of legwork to make the transaction go smoothly. I hope to work with Jody again.

J.D.

Jody was awesome to work with. We were new to the area and she was helpful and knowledgeable about not only the housing market, but schools, and lenders. She worked with my work schedule for showings. Jody also stayed late to write an offer to meet our schedule. I would recommend Jody to anyone needing a realtor.

M.L.

Jody is amazing. She knows the market and was able to advise us on all our many concerns. We so appreciated how responsive she was; within minutes of submitting an online request for realtor contact on a house, she had called us. All our communications with her were like that; we never had to wait long to hear back from her. She was patient and always willing to sit down and meet with us. When we found the house we wanted, she worked tirelessly to secure it for us, and she was extremely patient with us. She was easy to communicate with, understand, and a pleasure to work with – I highly recommend Jody!

J.T.

Jody is FANTASTIC!! We were first time home buyers and she was with us ever step of the way! She never made us feel silly for being new to the process. She definitely knows the area, always kept us up to date on new listings and was just a delight to work with. I would have absolutely zero hesitation recommending her to anyone. Thanks for all the hard-work Jody! We love our house!

K.G.

We chose to talk to Jody about representing us in selling our home for one primary reason… her website. I researched realtor websites in Bozeman and reached the conclusion that I liked hers the best – clean, simple to use, great photography, and the virtual tours really appealed to me.   When we met with her, it was obvious that she offered so much more than just a great website.  She was very knowledgeable of our specific area and homes that have sold and those currently on the market.  She had realistic ideas on pricing and great recommendations on staging our house. And everything was done so quickly… our house was on the market within 36 hours complete with photography and the virtual tour.

Shortly after it was listed, another realtor was showing the home next door.  He came over to ask a quick question, saw Jody’s sign out front, and said “I see you hired the selling machine”.  Well, I took that as confirmation that we had made the right choice… I have nothing but positives to report about how she handled negotiations and the advice that she gave us along the way.  She responds immediately (I like early risers).  I love her energy.  We were pleased with the outcome.  We highly recommend her.
