You Don't Expect Me To Believe That Picture's For Real!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Bluegrass Homes & Farms Realty, Agent Know How

Late last week I posted an ad on Craigslist that had one of our listings in it. I had posted this property before, but this time I thought including this picture would entice more leads to call:

10815 Symington Circle

One of our callers said, "You don't expect me to believe that picture's for real, do you?"

Brenda handled it very well. She said it is indeed for real, she took the picture herself, and would be glad to show it to him. The caller admitted that he was only looking to pay cash for a modular home. Never one to be daunted, she said she would be glad to help and did he know of anyone who was thinking of buying or selling a home?

It does look like a mini-resort, and maybe when spring gets closer we'll find an interested buyer who believes that the picture is real! =)

Enjoy your day, -Lynda

I thought this was going to be one of those "some jacked my pictures" blog. Glad to hear it was real :)

It sort of does look like Clip art or something like that. But every so often I myself take a good one also. Even a broken clock is right twice a day ;-)

That picture could entice me to move to Louisville, KY.  Excellent job on the photo and obviously the quality of the camera being used.

I'm thinking I should take photography classes! I would like to venture into video, too. I'm sure my brother-in-law could teach me a lot as he used to do that for a living.

Lynda, I believe a picture is worth a thousand words and a good one sells houses.

Pat: I agree 100%.

Adrian: Brenda is an extremely good agent. I learn a lot by watching and listening to her. That's why I am working on increasing internet leads, because once she gets a lead, she runs with it.

Timothy: Thanks, you keep up the posting too.

Yes, Brandon, I am starting to learn what does work and what doesn't. You can't give them too much information at the start or they won't have a reason to call or go to your website. Thanks.
