jeff fisher realtor: Drones for Real Estate Listings - 09/18/17 09:10 AM

Considering using a drone? 
Marketing a real estate property is one of the most difficult things to do in business today.  The competition is brutal, partly because online listings generate most of the leads. Almost every property buyer today begins their search online.  So, it can be really hard to stand out from the pack.
Using drones for real estate photography will become increasingly common now that it’s easier for real estate agents to operate them, or vendors are abundant offering thier services. No matter what rules are in place, using drones will spark some degree of controversy, but there’s no rebottling that genie. Now that … (1 comments)

jeff fisher realtor: Luxury Market Stats - 08/23/17 09:15 AM
This graphic analyzes the activity for single-family homes in the Scottsdale luxury resale market. 
 
Almost the whole market is humming along with all cylinders firing. However there is little sign that it is going to move up a gear from here… We are at a point where the seller remains in firm control but the seller’s advantage is no longer growing stronger. Whether that brings any significant relief to buyers I very much doubt, because we are entering the period, from early May to early October, when active listing counts tends to fall back, leaving even less supply for them to choose from. … (0 comments)

jeff fisher realtor: How to Maximize Your Home’s Curb Appeal in One Afternoon - 06/29/17 01:20 PM

 
Is your Scottsdale home ready for sale from the inside out?
Most Scottsdale home owners know that interior staging is essential to selling a home quickly and for the most profit, but too many home owners don’t think to expand their staging vision to the outdoors. Your home needs to be appealing to buyers the moment they set foot on the curb – hence, the term “curb appeal”.
Sure, we’re told not to judge a book by its cover, but making that excellent first impression on a buyer is often key to making a sale. Maximizing your home’s curb appeal goes by many … (1 comments)

There are some homes that sellers overprice considerably, and not because they have made a pricing mistake.

But, for some reason many realtors seem to think it is a good idea to write a lengthy Scottsdale property descriptions in exactly that style.
