When listing a property, we take pride in the services we offer our clients and work hard to make sure we are ahead of the curve on the next “big thing” in real estate. From the MLS system to advertising, marketing your home has changed immensely over the last few decades. You can feel secure in the fact that at Local Home Finder we are always using the most modern and high-end services available to market your home, most often, ahead of the competition.
Complimentary Free Home Evaluation
Our Local expert(s) already know the market in your area so let us do the work for you!! All we need is an address and our team will be able to give you an in-depth look at the value of your property and prepare a full market evaluation with neighbourhood specific data and details. This suggested listing price is a general indication of pricing in your neighbourhood, however, if you have a lot of upgrades or features in your home we would suggest scheduling a walk-through so we can price it more accurately. The precise reading on the projected listing price gives you helpful ideas on how to best showcase your home and create the best-looking property on your street. Most importantly, it will help us to pinpoint what will make your home shine above the competition and get your home SOLD!
Social Media Marketing Strategy
Facebook, Instagram, Google and more! Our team of social media experts is always ahead of the curve to ensure your listing stands out from the rest. We take social media marketing seriously and create custom advertisements for your home for the entirety of the time it is on the market. Each platform is expertly targeted and designed to engage home buyers looking to move to your specific area. Ya, we know it’s kinda creepy, but it works!

Professional Home Staging Consultation
Have you ever passed by a listing because the pictures and decor were a little blah, only to see it re-listed later looking like a luxury home after staging and high-end photography? Did it pique your interest then? We would bet it did! That’s because the home buying process, for most, starts online. What’s that saying?...a picture is worth 1000 words.
Home staging works, period. It can range from filling an empty house or room to rearranging existing furniture, to simple decluttering, to virtual staging (crazy right?)! How much or little you do is ultimately up to you as the seller. Our Professional Stager is available for an in-home or online video consultation to suggest what would be best suited for your home and ensure a polished look to your home during photography and showings.
These consultations are absolutely free, with no commitment, and you can use this valuable information however you wish. Don’t think you want to stage your home? Not a problem, this is just one of the many optional services we offer our clients.
Professional Photography, Videography, & HD Video Tours
Realtors taking their own photos are a thing of the past, or at least it should be! You will never find low res cellphone photos on one of our listings! We want the best for our clients so we hire the best. Our team will take care of booking true professionals to schedule photography and HD video tours of your property at no additional cost. But it doesn't stop there! Photos and video will then be edited so everything looks and is formatted perfectly on MLS and other advertising.
We offer separate guided walkthroughs that are perfect for social media platforms like Facebook and IGTV to pull in those potential buyers. Your agent will guide viewers through your home to highlight features that may not show in the generic video tours. Soft-close drawers, heated floors, that laundry chute that goes all the way to the basement, viewers will be begging to see your home after one of these tours!
We don’t stop there! The guided tour videos are then shortened to one-minute clips showing all of the highlights and are shared with targeted audiences on all our social media platforms for those who may not have time to watch the full-length version.
We know some of our clients take the most pride in their incredibly curated and impeccable gardens. These homeowners have gone above and beyond with the exterior and landscaping of their property - and we want to help them show it off. We can give your home an extra edge on the online market with this beautiful and luxurious photography style. Show off that beautifully lit wraparound porch or showcase the timeless exterior masonry. Please talk to us if you think this photography option would be a good fit for your home.
Aerial Drone Videography & Photography
That’s right, we’ve got DRONES. We offer HD drone photos and videos of every property that we list. This eye-catching material is an excellent way to feature your acreage, location, neighbourhood and all of the amenities it has to offer.
Often buyers visit multiple homes on the same day, so how do you make sure that they remember yours? No more boring black and white “feature sheets” for visiting buyers. Or worse, copies of the MLS listing and a stack of cards displayed on your kitchen table (gasp).
Our marketing department will create a custom magazine-style feature book just for your listing. Complete with room dimensions, utility information, schools, recreational activities, custom QR code and more!! Ask to see one of our beautiful Feature Magazines and we will show you what our design and marketing team can create for you.
