Throughout the years techniques used to attract home buyers continuously changed with new trends coming in a old ideas never leaving.
Since real estate internet sites have now surpassed the “for sale sign” as the most effective way for a buyer to find a property listing a lot of effort is put into making the ad look attractive.
The use of photography has evolved from a front view placed in the newspaper, on to virtually tours and now the use of cameras on a drone to showcase a listing.
All of these methods are definite time savers for a buyer
and can easily shorten their “must see” list.
If you are the seller of a property keep in mind that whatever is photographed does not go to a limited audience. Once it hits the internet not only prospective buyers are looking at what you have to sell. Co-workers, relatives, your neighbors, school friends, church friends and on and on will be able to step into your personal space. Take the time to discuss this with your agent and consider areas of your home or property that you would not be comfortable with anyone other than a prospective buyer viewing.
Regardless of how the property is presented the one thing that never changes is the price being in balance with the value. A property that is priced in line with the current market values for the location and condition is the most effective way to have a successful sale in a reasonable amount of time. Over priced properties will be a great challenge to sell for the asking price regardless of how many billboards, magazine ads, virtual tours, websites they are advertised on….
Advertised pricing based on the condition and location= sold!
