We all came here – you have a list, and you can’t wait for it to come up as a worthwhile purchase. You know this house will be popular if you put it there to exactly six buyers, but we’re not in the scary market we were in a few months ago.
As we begin to see what looks like the old seasons in many markets, listing marketing such issues.
What can you do to tighten your future listing and alert potential buyers that you have a property they might be interested in? The answer: coming-to-date marketing. Here are a few methods to try it.
Think of this like a movie theater – free rooms are given to yourself to take you back to the theater. Lightning, loud music, beautiful scenery – they give you all sorts of revelations about what you’re going to see without ruining the movie.

People seem to be visual, so there are many tools you can use to help build images that you can use to help first-sell your listings: 3D rendings, 2D Design plans, and 3D Render tour guide.
Be creative in your marketing, and have fun with it.
