Thinking that realtor tours and open houses are a waste of time? Here is a wonderful venue to entice realtors and experts alike to show off a home prepared well for this real estate market!
Together, Rachel and Leigh formed a TEAM prior to listing that they thought would give them the most powerful sales presentation possible for the home.
- They had the home pre-inspected by Gary Sloan of Advantage Inspection
- They contacted Dave Loefflerof Met Life for mortgage lending information
- They had the home appraised by a local appraiser, Sam Burch
- And I had the privilege of staging the home. I worked with a combination of Rachel's furnishing and accessories and my Peachtree Home Staging's accessories and furniture solutions.
- Last, but not, least the home was video's by Tom Knight's Knightyme Video Tours
So, ready for market, right? Well, yes, but, these two clever Realtors had one more thing they wanted to do! I know, you must be thinking, what possibly could be left undone?
Rachel and Leigh planned a wine a cheese party at the home, having all of the "TEAM" invite everyone we knew to come and see the PRESENTATION POWER OF A NEW LISTING THAT:
- Has been inspected
- Has complete lending information available
- Has been appraised
- Has presentation perfection through home staging services
- Has complete on-line video room to room presentation
We had folks crawling through the home steadily for over two straight hours. There was "oh-ing" and "ah-ing" in every room. People were reviewing what an inspection report included, People were checking out the appraisal in detail. Rachel and Leigh were in constant conversation, as was I, on how home staging works. I noticed several people walk out with my brochure!
It was such a great format for networking. Even though the people there were not necessarily there to buy this home, the one commonality among the guests was their mutual interest in our individual services.
Here's the invite the TEAM sent out:
