Real Estate Fun

Sometime, we like to see the humour in our daily life.

In our very competitive real estate market, it is imperative not only to reach potential buyers, but that you capture their attention. One of the most innovative ways is by adding drone footage to your property videos. We have two new additions to our collection of video equipment which we believe has helped our listings reach more buyers.

 

Handheld Drones 

Although it is not practical to fly a drone through a house (ask my houseplants after Claude’s first trial), the DJI Osmo is a handheld stabilized camera, with three-axis gimbal, and grip, that shoots 4K video, giving you the capability of “floating”, drone-like video of the interior of your home, without the risk of flying a machine indoors. This fluid stabilized video footage really

What will make a Buyer decide to write an offer on your home versus another? If two properties are very similar in size, location and price, it comes down to Selling a Lifestyle

One of the main reasons a buyer feels it's time to move is the need for a bigger house. Most likely, they are living in a home that has too little storage space, and as a result is cramped and unorganized. This chaos spills over into their daily life. Being unorganized means it takes longer to find coats, school bags, matching socks and sports gear, resulting in a family is always running late. Then the “blame game” begins; the laundry room is too small, there is no room for hockey equipment, shoes and jackets are spilling out from the closet.

It has been many years since Christina graduated from NAIT with a Marketing Diploma, and Social Media didn't even exist back then. Now, Social Media is the most important avenue available for promoting our properties. Unlike Print and Radio Advertising, Social Media such as Facebook, Instagram, Google+ & Twitter offer opportunities for 2-Way Interaction. Instead of just receiving information, a potential buyer can now show interest, ask questions, and share listings with others. Using Social Media, we are able to target specific markets and get your property out to potential buyers, answer questions they may have, and encourage them to book a viewing of your home.

As many parents find out, the craziness of Halloween week can reek havoc with your normal, busy week. Shopping for or making costumes, baking treats for your child’s class, decorating the lawn and carving pumpkins while driving your kids to lessons and practices can be overwhelming!

Several years ago, when our girls were both heavily into dance, youth group, and piano lessons, I sat down with my calendar, desperately trying to figure out when we would carve our pumpkins. There wasn't a free evening anywhere! During one of the girl’s many practices, I wandered into Michaels and found the answer to my prayers! I purchased two artificial pumpkins and showed my daughters when I picked them up. They were apprehensive; pumpkin carving was a big part of our

Anyone who knows me is aware of my Glitter Obsession/Dependancy (I justify my obsession because of my theatre/dance background, as well as having raised very girly daughters). I'm sure my very tolerant friends will not be the least bit surprised at my latest finds. 

When staging a home, a tiny touch of glam is a good thing in a room. While layering textures and colours, something shiny, metallic, or iridescent can both draw the eye and reflect light. I recently encountered two products which can add a bit of bling without being overbearing.

                              

The first product is "Valspar Signature Paint Crystals" (available at Lowes). These fantastic crystals add a subtle sparkle when mixed with paint. The uses are endless- from

Enticing Realtors to come out to an Open House on an acreage is an important marketing tool! By providing a lunch, it allows us time to go over the features of a home with the Realtors so they are able to point out those features out when they show the home to their own buyers.

This is all part of our Maximum Exposure Marketing Plan! Contact us today to find out how we can help you sell your home.

Our clients sometimes wonder why we use Social Media when marketing ourselves and the properties we list. What do those different medias really mean? Here is a cute pictorial we created to help explain what message an audience receives.

We had to include this picture on account of its "Cuteness" level. This is our grandson, and he always has to ride in one of the carts with Nana and Papa on it.

Why do we advertise on Shopping Carts, Bus Benches, etc? It helps us attract buyers! We can do our best to market a home, but we have to find a buyer for it as well. The more qualified buyers we find for one of our listings, the greater our opportunity is to sell your home quickly, and for top dollar!
