Right now is a peak time in real estate around Northeast Florida. Making your listing stand out from others is important to ensure you get the maximum amount of exposure. Here are a few tips on how to ensure your listing stands out from the others.
Be present for the shoot!
Being present for the shoot helps to ensure that the home is photographed how you envisioned it. The agent and photographer should be working together as a team to create the most compelling images that will present the home in the best possible light.
When at the shoot ask your photographer what can be done to help. Most of the time the first step is to go around the home and open every window blind, turn on all the lights, and be sure all ceiling fans are turned off. Having the agent there to get this moving can help the shoot move more efficiently.
Also the homeowners love to see the agent taking a hands-on approach. This shows them that the agent is invested in making sure their home is presented perfectly! With the agent present it allows the photographer to focus on taking great shots instead of being distracted by the owner or pets.
Add a dusk photo
By using a dusk photo as the cover photo it can quickly draw potential buyers eyes right to your listing over others. The more attention you get from the buyers the more likely you are to get more showings which can turn into more offers. That first impression is key so having a photo that stands out from others is important.
Share on social media
Most buyers in your local area are likely using social media regularly. Be sure to add your listings there. A lot of agents only post photos or links to their listings but there are other things you can do too. A short video slideshow or an exterior drone video can often get a buyer intrigued to want to see more. Video attracts a lot of clients and can be a great way to get additional views of your listing. If you want to take it one more step get an interior and exterior video which shows the whole home to the buyer. That way they can see the flow of the house.
