Monthly Market Update May 2017
This is Christina Swain with your monthly Market update! Inventory has remained low, and the buyer’s are out in full force. Summer is creeping up on us and the kids will be out of school which means the buyer’s are ready to purchase! Low inventory has created a higher demand in the market. Add to that a drastic increase in sales and reduction in marketing period and it is arguable the best time to sell a house.
So why not capitalize on that demand and drive it up higher to net more? How about netting $10K more? It is easy, hire expert realtors, like us and we invest in the marketing of your home with Professional Pictures.
Pictures are your number 1 marketing tool! Buyers search by pictures online when looking at homes. 92% of home buyers are online searching so your pictures need to be professional. Rooms need to look as large and bright as possible!
Let’s review how buyer’s search for homes. Buyer’s start their search by going online and entering in criteria. Their results pop up and they go through each home by looking at the photos. You only have about 5-10 seconds to capture a buyer’s attention online. So your pictures are critical at this point. It is at this point when a buyer drawn in by your pictures will read the description and further details on your home.
Buyers buy with emotion, and we want your pictures to elicit that emotional response online so we draw the most buyers through the door. More buyers looking at your home means you are able to net the most.
To summarize, you need AWESOME pictures to get a good number of appointments. Buyers are less likely to be interested in your home if your pictures don’t do your home justice.
You May Not ready to sell now, so It’s important that you plan ahead for exterior photos. Now that it’s spring, your home probably looks really good right now.
