Do You Know What Filters Your Buyer Is Looking Through?

After posting the pictures of Fall Colors at Lake Blue Ridge I started experimenting with one of the pictures. Changing the effects I used and creating totally different looks.


Fall Colors

 

It made me think about houses and how the one house can look different to different people.  We look at a house with “filters” and everyone has a different set of them.  One buyer may look at a house with the “filter” of needing a home large enough for their growing family. While another buyer may look at the same house with the “filter” of loving to cook and wanting a big kitchen.  Yet another may look at a house with the “filter” or wanting something that is turn-key, ready to move in and not change a thing.


Black and White



To each of these individuals this house will look different based on their circumstances, their wants and needs, their filters.

As agents it is our job not only to determine what a buyer’s filters are but then to find the perfect property that, looking through those filters, will look like HOME!

Well done with the photo effects ... and right-on with the message.  We nay "see" the same thing ... but we do all see it differently!

Love the effects!  Great pictures and great analogy.  Different strokes (filters) indeed.

Jack - thank you!  We all see things differently.  Sometimes I think one of the most challenging (yet important) part of our job is to be able to "see" what our buyers see - or at least would like to see!

First of all, love the photo.  We've been so fortunate with the colors this year.  As to filters?  I think the seller is wearing rose colored glasses and the buyers have a microscope!
