Online shopping is King… even if people intend to shop in person, oftentimes they will check out prices and reviews online before heading to a brick and mortar storefront. It’s no wonder that online shopping and e-commerce has completely changed the way people look for their future homes.
Back in the day, before we had access to all of the technology we now have at our fingertips, the way Realtors listed homes was very different from the way we do it now. We have Amazon and online shopping in general to thank for that. Everyone is very familiar with shopping online – whether it’s for groceries, a mattress, a car, or a home – step one is typically done on our phones.
So what does that mean for the way we list homes and the way we market your home? If we know that online shopping is something that everyone does without thinking these days and we know that the first thing someone is going to do to begin their house hunt is to pick up their phone – we know your listing needs to appeal to these online shoppers.
Your DBRE Agent knows and understands the best way to have an online shopper connect with your home listing. We work with teams of photographers and stagers to make sure your listing has all of the bells and whistles it may need. Each home and each listing will be different and each Agent will put their own touch on it, but we can guarantee that it will be NOTHING like the listings from way back when, or heck… even from five years ago!
We know the process can feel daunting and you may be wondering if your house is ready to list. Instead of scrolling and reading through advice online, connect with us so we can put you in touch with one of our Agents who can walk you through the entire process. If you are wondering what some of our listings look like, go take a peek to see what we have on the market and see all of the great things our teams have put together.
In today’s rapidly paced market, where inventory is low and demand is high – people are checking MLS listings multiple times a day and sometimes making offers on just the listing alone. With drone photography, virtual tours, and huge photo galleries of listings – it can feel like the shopper has already been in the home, which is vastly different than the days of Open Houses and flyers on door steps. We have fully adjusted to this new way of marketing our listings and hope that you will let us use our expertise with your home.
