Create Virtual Walkthroughs

In 2021, more and more real estate professionals are understanding and utilizing the power of video for their business. And when it comes to showing a home, there is no better time to pull out your smartphone, hit record and offer your leads an immersive experience from wherever they may be.

Video walkthroughs offer more insight into how a home is realistically represented and give prospective buyers a better sense of what the space looks like in person.

Pre-recorded video walkthroughs are a great addition to your listings, but don’t forget about the perks of going live across different social media platforms. Host an upcoming live tour where you can walk your sphere through a home and showcase details that may otherwise be overlooked. This also gives your leads an opportunity to ask questions and engage with you, creating a relationship.

Not only will this help promote your listings, but it will help present your efforts in a more personable and relatable way that today’s homebuyers crave.

As more prospects are turning to the internet to begin their home search, it’s more important than ever to offer this experience, make your listings stand out among the competition and win over more clients for your business.

Hire a Professional Photographer

For a successful listing to catch the attention of multiple buyers, photography is a must. With a busy schedule full of open houses, client meetings and team workshops, taking great listing photos can seem like a daunting task. Hiring a professional photographer can help you not only capture perfectly-lit staged images for your listings, but also connect you with a great resource for your business.

    I loved this post, I’ve been trying to come up with some ways to get leads and this helped out a lot. You especially got me with the little part with Adam in there, the guy from that workaholics tv show. Anyway, you did a good job keeping the content fresh, it didn’t get stale or boring.
