When listing a home for sale we always see an initial excitement in the marketplace for that new listing! Here are a few ideas, that as a listing agent, I endorse which might help your listing maintain a high level of excitement as the process moves along to obtain more showings and find our home buyer!
"I need to set up a time to come by with my photographer to get photos!" That is something you won't hear from most agents who either use an assistant with an iPhone or take a few shots themselves! Professional photography will set your listing apart! There’s nothing more important than HI-Resolution photography when it comes to online real estate marketing. One source I use for property marketing includes PlanOmatic due to the professionalism of their photographers along with the quality of their services! Their ability to provide the help to me to market all my listings to the fullest is unmatched!
Including a Floor Plan with Listing Photos - This is a great idea as most people can't envision the flow of a room or floor plan just from listing photos alone! PlanOmatic helps by creating an interactive floor plan of your property. They have a very responsive design and layout to give buyers a better look at your listing. The coolest aspect of Planomatic is that their QuickView feature allows buyers to search within photos for specific rooms from Kitchen, Dining, or Master Bath! Its interactive so it helps you explore every detail of the property, contact me the listing agent, who knows your property better than any buyer's agent would, in an instant, or easily share on social media platforms such as Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook!

Neighborhood/Amenities Photos - Most people need to see that you are selling a "lifestyle," not just a home, yet I rarely see photos of the community within that set of photographs. It's not a Property Description, It's the Story of your Home! - We want more than just the list of features, we want to communicate to home buyers how it feels to live in your home, neighborhood, the outlying community, and what you love about it!
Blog posts - From blogging about the local community, real estate market trends, to reviewing a recent experience at a local restaurant or upcoming community events, a good agent always finds ways to create links back to your property listing. As a matter of fact, I am a Contributor to several national and local online real estate and community information portals such as Inman.com and Patch.com! This is content that gets indexed to Google instantly!
Property Videos - Great way to emphasize your home’s best features to be posted on YouTube, Vimeo, and linked around the web! This would include, Zillow 3D Home, but Matterport is also a leading provider of 3D home tours. More extensive than a Zillow 3D tour taken with an iPhone, Matterport is shot using specialized equipment and taken by a photographer or videographer on site. Take a look at this Matterport 3D presentation on a recent listing!
When taking on the responsibilities of a listing agent it is my job to keep the listing fresh, in the eyes of buyers and the community of real estate professionals in our market, and I bring ideas to the table to help get your home sold! To me communication is key. Also being up on the market by evaluating and keeping an eye on new active listings, under contracts, and sold comparables that will occur after your listing begins. Where is your home marketed online? Today your property is marketed online to thousands of websites! Please find a quick link here!
