Homes Online vs. In Person

File_000(3)

Online: “It’s HUGE!”

  • Photographers can use a wide angle lens to make everything look as large as possible.

In Person: “Is this a room or a closet?”

  • Buyers are often surprised at how much smaller a home appears in person

Online: “It looks like a new home!”

  • HDR image processing can make a home appear brand new.

In Person: “What’s that smell?”

  • Strong pet odors, mold and sewer/septic issues are surprises that you can’t experience online.

Online: “It looks so peaceful!”

  • Home staging creates a peaceful environment, but those items can distract you from other details.

In Person: “Did I just hear gun shots?”

  • It’s smart to hang out in the neighborhood for a few hours to know the real area experience.

Online: “I have a good feeling!”

  • Online listings will rarely show flaws in a property. It’s ALL positive information.

In Person: “Is that a minivan community in the neighbors yard?”

  • Yes, it has happened. Enough said.
