Times have changed; you knew it might come to this and hoped you would have retired before it was forced on you! Long-time Realtors are being asked to use our virtual tours as the flagship of their internet marketing…by their clients!
Fortunately, you don’t have to “do it yourself.” Surf MLS for a good chuckle by looking at the quality photos being posted. Would you put those on your own home? I doubt it. You’d call in a professional, because you want your home’s first impression to outshine the competition.
You don’t have to understand the internet. All you need to be able to do is place a listing on MLS and upload photos to it (or have someone do it for you ;). We do everything else.
We encourage Realtors to send our “tips” to clients prior to the shoot so that their home will have the best first impression, and the majority of homeowners “jump right in” to help.
