Selling your Lake of the Ozarks home today is much different than it was just a few years ago. Before the advent of the Internet, marketing your home was done through various printed media… newspaper ads, flyers, magazines, etc. A buyer could pick up a local newspaper and a couple of real estate magazines that a Broker had paid to advertise in and which offered properties. The ads would be displayed by Broker or Agent, rather than by price or property type. Then the buyer methodically would go through the ads, looking at properties for homes that fit his or her criteria. This was not a very effective way of searching for property, and it was a waste of time. While those types of media still have some use, recent research shows that, nowadays, more than 80% of homebuyers start their new home search on the Internet. Because Lake of the Ozarks is a tourist market, that percentage is even higher. 

When considering selling your Lake of the Ozarks home, condo, golf course home or waterfront home, your priority should be having effective Internet marketing. Therefore, when you choose a brokerage that will market and sell your home, the power and quality of their Internet presence should be at the top of your list of qualifications.
