Exciting day today!
People are celebrating
And who is celebrating?
Well, home buyers are
The average amount of showings per listing just dropped in the month of July to levels back to 2014
And so when you start thinking about the ability to get into a home
It is much easier now as a homebuyer when you look at competition
And so again, I know homebuyers are celebrating and that’s very exciting
But what about home sellers?
Well, guess what?
Home sellers are still excited too!
And the reason being is that home values are still at an all-time high
And appreciation rates still continue to rise in Colorado
And so when you start thinking about that celebration
We know the buyers are
But we want to have a party where sellers are celebrating exactly the same way
And so who do I have with me?
The life of a party, Mr Korey Wacker
And so when you start thinking about any party you have
You want great people around
And guess what? As a home seller
You want a party at the end of it
When it comes to the profits you received
And feel like a celebration was with the right people
And so, Korey share with us a little bit of what people need
When you look at selling a home to make sure that they are celebrating like home buyers as well
Korey: Absolutely J!
And, the reason why I am here is truly to encourage you
To find out what is going to assist you
In driving that foot traffic as best as possible
In this still amazing Colorado market
And I have 3 key tips that I really want you to focus on
When driving your foot traffic
Inviting as many people into your home is the first thing I really want you to focus on
Is going to be social media marketing
The power of social media today is unbelievable
There are over 5 million people that live in the state of Colorado
And out of those 5 million, over 4 million are internet users
That being said
2.5 millions of those actually have Facebook
It’s so amazing how many people can stay connected without even being next to you
So that’s going to be the first and most important part
Is driving that traffic through social media
The second part is over and upward of roughly 90% of showings
At least the first one, are done online
And so the most important part is making sure that your photos and your videos of your specific property
Are going to be top-notch because the first time
A person is going to want to decide if they come to your house or not
Is going to be sitting at home right in front of their own laptop
Or their own smart phone
And so giving them the user accessibility to see your house before they even get there lets them know that they validate their own time in wanting to make the time away from their children or with their children, on an off day, out of work, to your home
And the third one is going to be
Making sure that you touch base with your specific neighborhood
There’s no other person that cares more about who’s living next to them
Than the people who are in your neighborhood
The people who have families want to know if they are bringing kids and who’s going to come
And they also, always want to know J, is
What have you done to your home since you have been there?
So they’re pretty excited to come over to the open house and all the other things
And so making sure that you get out in that neighborhood
Making sure that you sign very well
So everybody is talking about it
Word of mouth is still the best way of connectivity in this amazing world
Justen: You know what? I love it
Because you start thinking about what a party represents
And how do you celebrate
Is the foot traffic and the amount of people at your party
But then the amount of people that want to stay
And as a home seller
The ones that want to stay are the ones that write the offers
And so again Korey, great words of advice
We hope that you guys are celebrating in the real estate market
