Hey Photographer

04/08/2014

After price, photos are the most effective marketing tool when selling residential real estate. Photos matter! In the internet age, a photo must be worth way more than a thousand words.

Poor photos physically pain me.

I cringe when I see listing photos obviously taken with someone’s smartphone camera. Oof. Actually, I cringe whenever listing photos aren’t professional. What a poor  *ahem*  reflection on the property, on the realtor, on the entire real estate industry.

Professional photos are simply a must in any proper marketing campaign. Amen.

I’ll climb off my pulpit now.

My favorite photographer, Jason Mercio, is pictured here, doing his beautiful thing.

Winging Our Way

01/16/2014

Would you believe, flowers are starting to bloom around here? In January? I saw them today with my own two eyes while walking home from the office. How welcome is that?

So here we go, flying high towards our always robust, ever welcome, spring market. At GBK  this week we celebrated (with pastry and deviled eggs) a record breaking 2013 and reported four more 2014 sales, including this town home in Madison Valley, listed for $479,000 and sold with four offers for well over asking price.GetMedia-1.ashx

I was interested to hear this especially because I may list one like it nearby a little later in the season. My seller has just been waiting for prices to come back up to where they once were. We seem to have arrived at that place.

Meanwhile, I have been working on a sale in a condo building that features this spectacular view from its rooftop deck. It is a pleasure to visit the building often while doing so. GetMedia-2.ashx

2014, looking good. Let’s plan to soar!
