Maine Real Estate For Sale !


(Mic Feedback Squawk) Audience Local Question | Creek, Brook, Stream?

In your local real estate market, describing the property listing is like an artist with a blank white canvas.

On the easel and ready to "paint". So the buyer of the real estate that is eyeballing the home, or whatever property blog letter photolisting type can know how they all different. To play the game like Sesame Street when eating your cheerios and watching Bert and Ernie go at it and the other colorful characters that helped the education curve. One of these things is not like the others, just does not belong.

So in your market knowing every real estate landscape for listings is so so different, what is the difference, distinction when there is a small thread of water out back.

Bordering the backyard of the home, or on the farm, out in the wood sections of the property listing? It's not a river but smaller. What is the difference, when do you apply the label of creek or brook or stream? So the guy and gal on the other end of the tin can and string can know what you are talking about. Can make the connection on his end to say "ah it." To know what you are talking about clearly, easily, distinctively. Without a doubt or confusion.

Obviously a video that shows the water, where you can hear it means the real estate agent does not have to describe it or be so much of a tour guide that has to spell it out. The sound, the sight of the water and size of the flow can be relayed with just a stop, watch and learn approach.

Maine Waterfront, Exciting Stuff To Have Your Real Estate Property Listing Border.

When its waterfront property listing description time, not making the real estate blown up into something it is not is to be avoided. But so is leaving something out. To undersell a feature like waterfront.

Painting the picture is so important Andy.  Great video, makes you feel like you're there, nothing else to explain.

Andy  I could watch that video all day!  Thanks for sharing it.  We have so many seasonal creeks and they are listed as year-round!  Wrong.  Snow melt and rain they look pretty good...maybe 3-4 months of the year.

Roger ... New reporting should be the same way... show the newsmaker, hear and see the inflections, tone, in his own words at the event. Rather than the talking head trying to paraphrase and take a half a sound bite and missing the flavor, essence of what the person is saying. We interview properties, like people, show how they are different, unique and the MLS scrape has a sea of sameness. Lots of what is really neat is lost. Video not a slide show captures, adds life, makes the connection. You take the property, the area events to the buyer far away. Overcoming the obstacle he has to take an expensive trip. No he doesn't with video delivered hot as fresh pizza to his door.

John ... In our area the word creek is never used. So what is one? A stream can be a brook or bigger and almost a river. Rivers like lakes and ponds come in different sizes. So when I say property borders a brook, it year round or intermittent if the spring rains are running long and hard with winter snow run off. But will not look for wide, full of water and be so "verbal" later in the season. We set the expectations, the video removes us and puts the property listing to do all the talking. We are matchmakers who find a property that fits, works. Which means using all the media technology allows. Not the old fashioned couple pictures and a sign speared in the lawn for only local traffic to consider.

Creek and stream are a size difference around here and we really don't have streams, either creeks or rivers. The biggest issue is year round and/or spring fed.

Than ... There you have it. The local jargon to make the point where the truth will set you free. Farms, farmettes, ranch, ranchettes not terms sky right co op commercial brokers bat around, use either. Buzz words and what do they mean to an outside buyer with a different vocabulary. Or when the words are just plain foreign, Klingon, Romulan. Greek, Sanskrit to the buyers.

Andrew, I think the better the story, the more interest, traffic and ultimately buyers. Tell good stories is a mantra, I know you understand. I see it in your work. Great post

L times two ... Seeing the individual in the audience and not talking at them, over their head but one on one. That is the connection you can make with hard work, creativity and using all the media streams in a tag team marketing harmony. Thanks for stopping in!

Painting the correct picture is the key. So many times thd listing Agent doesn't bother to tell the whole story...

Larry and Sheila .... So true. Many places are left out in the dark and under described, without the media attention that could make them shine. Get sold quicker and appeal to a larger audience.

Andy, I am not so sure anymore!  Just came tonight from the FEMA meetings on flood insurance changes if you are by or near any body of water and there are some huge increases happening.  Elevation certificates are a must going forward....I don't know how Maine is impacted but in my county 3890 homes are impacted by the increases.

Darwin .... Thank you !

Ginnny .... FEMA maps are so inaccurate in our local lake territory and petitioning to make them reflect real world to save lake camp and home owners the exception $800 survey charge is underway. But Uncle Sam is cash strapped and not so big a priority Ginny.
