How Floor Plans Can Help Sell a Home

A Simple Floor Plan Can Demonstrate How Exceptional a Home Truly Is.

In addition to other effective marketing tools used to sell homes that include photos, virtual tours, staging, and virtual open houses, the simple floor plan allows potential buyers to decide if a home will meet their needs quickly and without any uncertainty. Once a buyer can determine comfort and usability of the space,  they can then peruse photos, property layouts, and other media to fill in the details that will help solidify their decision. A floor plan is an excellent marketing tool that can assist a realtor in helping their listing stand out from other competitor property listings, as it helps buyers see the structure of the home in addition to how the rooms communicate with one another.

Industry experts from Moreover, Reddit, Rightmove, and City-Data also share positive pro-floor plan opinions:

Adding a floor plan to a real estate listing can increase click-throughs from buyers by 52%.

A floor plan can save a lot of driving and looking.

A floor plan qualifies a buyer before even seeing the home.

Being sensitive to the buyer’s needs and considerate of their time.

Realtors who add real estate floor plans to their listings’ marketing materials will turn any buyer into a grateful one when it saves their time. Getting valuable insights about a property is mutually beneficial for both agent and buyer. Why wouldn’t any real estate professional want to offer the buyer all the possible information and visual assets before arranging an in-person visit? By consistently providing floor plans, it will become easier for buyers to understand if they like a home’s layout or not.

While a floorpan doesn’t tell the whole story, there is a lot that can be determined from it, and it also goes a long way with helping buyers who may be handicapped or disabled and have a difficult time attending in-person visits.  A floor plan helps to narrow down options in these cases by displaying the home’s accessibility or lack thereof.

In other situations, when buyers have multiple home visits per day, they may forget certain distinctions between two options. This is where a floor plan can impress a specific property into the buyer’s memory. The buyer already visualized himself in that property by utilizing that defined structure to help him envision his future life in that house. Hence, an emotional connection is formed and should be taken into account when selling properties to buyers.

Creating a well defined, quality floor plan is straightforward with the right tools.

NextHome SunRaye Realty employs Matterport 3D technology to create high-quality, web-ready floor plans that include detailed output. The simple visual has more useful impact than virtual tours as it provides the most detailed information from a critical perspective. Whether you are looking to sell your home or purchase a new one, floor plans provide a valuable visual that will assist you remarkably.

Is it Safe to Sell Your House Right Now?

Sell Your House: Weighing a Seller’s Market Against Valid Concerns

Is it Safe to Sell My House Right Now? | MyKCM

In today’s real estate market, the buzz is all about how it’s a great time to sell your house. Buyer demand is high, and there simply aren’t enough homes available to buy to meet that growing need. This means now is the time to make a move so you can close the deal on your ideal terms.

Even in today’s strong sellers’ market, there are homeowners who are choosing not to sell due to ongoing concerns around the health crisis, financial uncertainty, and life in general. According to Zillow, here are the top three reasons homeowners who are thinking of selling sometime in the next three years are not putting their houses on the market right now:

  • 34% – Life is too uncertain right now
  • 31% – Financial uncertainty
  • 25% – COVID-19 health concerns

If you identify with any of these, you’re not alone. Whether it’s the future of your employment situation or simply being uncomfortable having guests in your home for showings, life feels a lot different than it did at this time last year. The good news is, real estate professionals have spent the majority of 2020 figuring out how to sell homes safely, and it’s paying off for those who are choosing to move this year.

Real estate agents are doing two things very well to make selling your house possible:

1. Agents Are Implementing Technology in the Process

While abiding by state and local regulations as a top priority, real estate agents are making sales happen safely and effectively by leveraging key pieces of technology. Agents know exactly what today’s buyers and sellers need and how to put the necessary digital steps in place. For example, agents have capitalized on the technology buyers find most helpful when deciding on a new home:

  • Virtual tours
  • Accurate and detailed listing information
  • Detailed neighborhood information
  • High-quality listing photos
  • Agent-led video chats

They’re listening to their audience and leveraging the tools that help buyers get an initial look at a home without having to step inside. This helps reduce the number of people entering your home, so only those who are very seriously interested need to take the next step: in-person showings.

2. Agents Are Facilitating Safe and Effective In-Person Showings

After leveraging technology, if you have serious buyers who still want to see your house in person, agents are following the guidelines set by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and utilizing safe ways to proceed. Here are a few of them, understanding again that the agent’s top priority is always to follow­ state and local restrictions first:

  • Limiting in-person activity
  • R­­­equiring guests to wash their hands or use an alcohol-based sanitizer
  • Removing shoes or covering them with booties
  • Following CDC guidance on social distancing and wearing face coverings

Getting comfortable with your agent – a true trusted advisor – taking these steps under the modern-era safety standards might be your best plan. This is especially important if you’re in a position where you need to sell your house sooner rather than later.

As Jeff Tucker, Senior Economist for Zillow notes:

“Homeowners who feel life is uncertain right now may think they can still get a strong price if they delay selling until they have more clarity. The catch is that waiting to sell may raise the cost of a trade-up. This fall’s record low mortgage rates, which make a trade-up more affordable on a monthly basis, are not guaranteed to last.”

Bottom Line

In this new era in our lives, things are shifting quickly, and virtual strategies for sellers may be your ideal option. Opening your doors up to new approaches could be game-changing when it comes to selling your house while the market is leaning in your favor. Let’s connect so you have a trusted real estate professional to help you safely and effectively navigate all that’s new when it comes to making your next move.
