When selling real estate, marketing is extremely important. We can guide you in choosing the proper and most effective method to sell your property.  Whether it is a general listing on the MLS, live or online auction, sealed bid or sometimes a private listing, we can assist you. We target buyers in various ways including major real estate websites, email, social media, newsletters, postcards, posters, flyers, newspapers, radio and word of mouth. East Iowa Real Estate offers quality photography, drone videos, google earth and other methods of getting your property viewed by the buyers. We often will schedule an 'Open House' so buyers can see the property. We will get your property information to ALL potential buyers. 

If you are looking to purchase real estate we have agents that can assist you. Whether it is your first home or you are a seasoned buyer looking to add to your real estate portfolio, East Iowa Real Estate can guide you through the process.  We have agents that know the local market and have experience in residential, farm and commercial real estate. If you are considering a Code 1031 Exchange (or other types of exchanges) on an investment property we can help you through the process.  

East Iowa Real Estate has worked with area lenders, attorneys, title companies, surveyors, inspectors, mitigation companies and others involved with real estate transactions. We can make your transaction go as smoothly as possible.
