Photography and your listing…..

In fact it didn't take long for photos to become paramount. Soon enough buyers started to eliminate homes without so much as a drive by. If the photos weren't top of the line, the listing went to the bottom of the pile. As someone who has worked with many a buyer, I can promise you that it can be like pulling teeth to get a buyer to view a home with shoddy pictures -even though I know they would love if they could only SEE it.

Real Estate Issues

The Listing Agent Minefield – Whatever happened to internet transparency?

But....Why are home sellers so confused? Why is the real estate process STILL so opaque? Why are these blogs even necessary?

The Listing Agent Minefield – “Everyone I know lists with ‘Big Box Brokerage’ so they must be the best”

When you go to Starbucks, you expect the same service in New York that you get in California... The same would hold true of a McDonald's or a Cheesecake Factory. There is a consistency within these brands that just doesn't happen in real estate brokerage brands and that can extends even within individual franchises.

The Listing Agent Minefield – Should I choose my agent from Zillow’s list of premier agents?

What exactly is a "premier agent"? I think most buyers and sellers think that there is some nice person or department at Zillow headquarters that carefully culls the lists of agents and offers premier positions to agents that have strong track records in each particular location. I hate to burst your bubble on this, but nothing could be further from the truth.
