Nothing left to the imagination, everything bared for the world to see, study, admire up close and personal.Take it off, take it all off. Don't tarp, cloak, lead line an iron curtain around your new real estate property listing.
Do you usually bolt from the house listing taken hurriedly on the kitchen table with a slap dash frontal straight on shot with a home door yard full of vehicles?
Mr Buyer Wannabee's first reaction is "do they sell used cars at this property"?
"Wished I could see the home, that it was not so shy, would open up".
Or "Maybe it is an impound area in that front yard shielding the pretty house behind the chrome and all those colors of over parked, towed in vehicles"?
And shooting those photos, video loops straight in to the sun the wrong time of the day to create the solar eclipse effect.
That further pushes the home back in the shadows, where no one can see her best redeeming physical qualities.
Your skimpy few photos tease the buyer not in a good way.He flits, finds someone else that will bare all, show and tell them the naked truth about home listings.
Confusion when a buyer is gingerly stepping out to consider making the largest investment of his or her lifetime means take it off. Don't hold back. Unbutton, unzipper whatever is keeping the house photos from coming in one right after another. Remove all the obstacles, anything covering up how the property shines. Pose that property. Presentation is everything. Put down that toilet seat.
Turn on the lights, strip away the clutter.
Show its prettiest features, have the video touch on the loose ends too for an honest representation of the old girl.
That cleans up well, looks pretty hot when dolled up, decked out.
You are not summons to the property to kinda, sorta list it.
You really want to get to that real estate closing with the buyer and seller right?
To slide house keys seductively, slowly across the long, smooth genuine imitation polished table.
Casually, coyly at the same time pulling back your commission check the other way.
You got to go all the way.
From listing to home showings to real estate closing.Got around all the bases.
The climax of the process, just before everyone pushes their chairs back, stands up, puts on their coats and shakes hands. Wishes everyone luck. And you the broker reminding all in the room when the house warming party is. The party to celebrate the drop dead gorgeous home the buyer's settle in on from all those exciting photos, the carefully edited video loops, boatloads of details, aerial maps, helpful links about financing options.
A private photo shoot designed to beam around the world and bare all, tell all, show everything from the top to the bottom. Sideways, backwards and forwards. Up and down.
We're real estate agents, not secret agents right? Expose, turn on the hot bright lights and start the tease, routine to market the property with passion, intensity and have fun doing it, exposing the place. The neat area it is located in, not just relying on the pretty sticks and bricks obvious features. Maine, big state, natural four season beauty without the make up or spin.
