The Selling Process
Real Estate marketing has changed dramatically since F.C. Tucker Emge’s story began in 1910. Marketing your home then simply meant sticking a sign in the yard and running a newspaper ad. Today things are quite different. Below are some of the services we will offer you during the selling process.
At FCTuckerEmge.com you can view every home for sale in Southwest Indiana. On this website, you can search for homes by street name, subdivision, county and more; view a map that shows the location of other homes for sale, schools, parks, shopping and much more. You can also take a sneak peak at Sunday’s open houses on www.TuckerOpenHouses.com and learn about buying, selling and financing a home.
Use Your Phone to Find Your Home. Our mobile search tools are GPS enabled which makes finding a home near you even easier. Stop in front of any home for sale, tap “Find Properties Near Me” and Voila - Property Photos, Bedrooms, Baths and Square Footage, all at your fingertips!
TourFactory Virtual Tours
F.C. Tucker Emge REALTORS® is committed to putting your home in front of potential buyers with the most innovative Virtual Tour on the market. Over 84% of Home Buyers and Sellers start their search online then contact a real estate agent. In today’s market, the number of physical showings has declined. 1st, 2nd, even 3rd showings happen online, before potential buyers even consider making an appointment. More pictures = more views. We will make sure that your home is showcased the best way possible to make it stand out above the rest. Through Tour Factory virtual tours, we are syndicating your home to the most popular real estate websites and search engines on the web and deliver detailed results through TourFactory Seller’s Reporting. You will receive a weekly customized report showing how frequently the virtual tour of your home was viewed across all the websites on TourFactory’s syndication. This helps keep you informed of online showings.
Be an informed seller! If you are like most sellers, you want to be informed at every stage when your home is on the market. With ShowingSuite.com, you will get immediate feedback directly from prospective buyers after they have toured your home.
