Buffalo Grove / Long Grove agent discusses an important real estate strategy a week!

Royal Melbourne home Buffalo Grove /Long Grove real estate agent Judy Greenberg gives  important tips and strategies on how to sell your home in today's market.  Stay tuned for a strategy a week!

In my opinion, timing and knowledge are the keys of selling your home quickly and for the highest possible price.  My goal is to educate the seller and buyer to take full advantage of the present market.   

Seller-Strategy One- Take pictures of your home in all seasons- especially those that emphasize the beauty of your home. 

Let's say you want to put your home on the market in early spring, one of the times most people ultimately first think about selling their home.  Imagine what the photos of your home would look like at the time of year.  If you live in Chicago's suburbs, your pictures would either include dirty snow or ugly barren trees.  (Sometimes not a pretty site and one that does not make a good first impression.)

According the National Association of Realtors, nearly 80% of homebuyers start their home search on the Internet. This number is increasing on a daily basis.  The potential buyer  narrows his list of homes he would like to see by looking at pictures on the internet.   

My suggestion is that if you are comtiplating  putting your home on the market in early spring - take your pictures now.   Everything is very green ,especially after the week of rain we had a couple of weeks ago.   Fall is a beautiful time of year and it would be a good idea to show the potential buyers what your home looks like in different seasons.   To your left- this backyard  in Long Grove will not photograph as well in the middle of winter as it does in the middle of the fall.

 

In my opinion, it's the photos -- and good photos -- that gets a potential buyer in your home, and you only get one chance to make a first impression.   A good picture is worth a 1000 words, a bad picture on the other hand  may result in the consumer skipping over your home in their internet search and ultimately lose the sale. 

For all of you realtors who are reading this blog... would you take a client to a home which had no pictures on the internet?  What about one that had bad pictures?  What about potential buyers, what do you think?
