I’m sure we all agree that innovation is the only way to thrive in today’s global economy. We’re talking basically anything that will add value and improve quality for our customers. Innovation is not just about coming up with new ideas and products—it’s also about changes that lead to growth and differentiation.
Today the process of selling a home has moved beyond the simple “For Sale” sign.  Both buyers and sellers have demanded a more comprehensive approach that is in step with today’s technology. 

And at Real Tour Vision it’s INNOVATION INSANITY, their distributors have the tools, technology, inspiration, and education in the evolution of new products, methods, and enhancements = innovation as a mindset, and we’d like to add to the conversation with examples of our powerful marketing tools. There are many of ’em.

Here how we will differentiate your property online and offline:
1.  First of all, we use a professional photography that will showcase your property in the best light.  Crisp, clear daytime images, elevated shots, and nighttime photography capture the true feeling of your property.

2.  Virtual tours allow potential buyers to privately walk through your home on their own time without any inconvenience to you.  Online virtual tours are rapidly becoming the avenue for home shoppers to view properties and services before actually visiting.  Our virtual tours not only connect buyers to your home or business but with the community surrounding it.  They contain local city and school information as well as maps of the area.

3.  2D and 3D floor plans can be easily coupled with still photos so that prospective buyers can view dimensions and actual images at the same time. 

4.  Panoramic sign riders placed beneath you’re for sale sign highlight key photographs inside while providing an internet address for buyers to visit.

Innovation: not just R&D labs, and not necessarily expensive
A couple more thoughts on innovation:
•    Innovation is not just about people in R&D labs taking the internet pulse. “Real” innovation does not happen haphazardly or sporadically within organizations. “Real” innovation is accomplished consistently and systematically, given the true voice of the customer and a process for delivering solutions.  Most important, innovation involves the taking of the work of an individual (or team) of inventors and taking it to a broader audience.
•    Trying or starting something new doesn’t have to cost you and arm and a leg. Many of the innovations featured in this blog post are FREE; while the others are very cost effective, give as a call and you’ll be amassed!  Keep innovating!  You can be everything in your life—just not all at once.
