PanoRiders Work For Me

The virtual tour industry becomes more competitive every year. More companies that offer “virtual tours” (even if they are just simple slide shows) open their doors every day. That means more companies are fighting for the same customers. So what can you do to win their business? Sure you can show them the virtual tour, stats reports and social networking built right in. Offer them the online distribution engine and then show them your PanoRider.

Even with online distribution, over 70% of home buyers claim the yard sign in front of the house is still an extremely valuable source of information and the PanoRider is a VERY effective yard sign. Prospective buyers who pass by a sign need a reason to react to and remember the listing.

By adding a PanoRider to the sign, you have instantly given that person an easy, non-confrontational way to access information online. When they are ready to contact the listing agent, the phone number, website and email are right in the tour window.
So be sure to offer your clients your PanoRider every time they place an order. You will be surprised how many agents want these great marketing tools. But it is up to you to tell them about it! If you don’t have a PanoRider, order one right now and keep it in your car. Then you can pull it out at the photo shoot and show the agent in person. You WILL sell many more of them if you do this every time. It’s easy money and you hardly have to do anything other than show them the product and collect the money!

Good Luck Out There!

Miami Real Estate Market Looking Up

Residential real estate professionals need to get back to the basics of business or their customer base will be lost. The industry is dealing with the continuing impact of sub-prime and mortgage liquidity problems in the housing market.

Some real estate agents complain about the conditions of the market, but if their home is priced right, buyers will buy. You need to inform your buyers that our local market is simply phenomenal because prices are down and interest rates are historically low.

It is important to increase your visibility in your community and your marketplace. Knock on doors; reintroduce yourself. Do not forget to place in the contract an agreement with the seller that if the property is not sold in a certain time span, the listing price will be revisited for a possible reduction. Home pricing needs to be aggressive and realistic. In this market it is a good idea to target market your prospecting to homeowners who have to sell for whatever reason, such as deaths, divorces, company relocation and downsizing.

The simple solution to the actual situation in the marketplace is to spend your time increasing the number of your listing inventory. You need to spend 100 percent of your time focused on getting your product in front of the consumer.

Most real estate companies are obtaining good results by using virtual tours and sending the tours and slide shows of properties on discs, using Panoriders and single property websites, thereby creating detailed exposure of the property for their prospects. This gives them more information than sending the standard photos and listing data.

You need to change your approach to fit today’s changing marketplace. Do something different to rebuild your productivity or you may find yourself doing something different tomorrow to make a living.

Right now there are some signs indicating that Miami’s real estate housing market is showing some signs of recovery. If you check you will see fewer foreclosure signs, that home prices are stabilizing and less time is required for listings to sell. Maybe the most important of all is that the media is becoming more positive.

For any of your virtual tour needs in Miami Beach, Miami Dade or Broward counties remember to contact Virtual Florida Tours at (305) 331 8960 or www.virtualfloridaraltours.com.

BakerB Solutions and PanoRiders Produce Results!

We just received a new order for a great virtual tour of a $2 Million property from Kelly Olaffson from McEnearney Associates in McLean, Virginia.

Kelly told me that the seller was so impressed with the PanoRider and virtual tour we did for a recent $750,000 listing Kelly sold in McLean, that he couldn’t wait to see what she would do with his $2M property.

Kelly told me that she attributes landing this new listing in large part to our work and the Web Sign Rider (also known as a PanoRider). That particular marketing tool gave Kelly a leg up on other agents in her area, and the opportunity to show her new client not only what she does with virtual tours and signs, but also all the other marketing and experience she brings to the table.

So if you know of anyone in Rockville, North Potomac, Gaithersburg or Potomac, Maryland or in Northern Virginia including Vienna and McLean, Virginia or anywhere else in the Washington DC Metro area, that is interested in hiring professionals to take photos of a property for a world class virtual tour, or that wants a PanoRider with single property website, please call BakerB Solutions (www.bakerb.com) at 301.424.8282 to get started today.

High End Virtual Tours

We are really proud of our virtual tour company and our success in high end markets. I’d like to give a quick overview of our company history.

September 2005 – Started our little experiment, doing virtual tours, a little website work, and computer work. Had to do all three to make ends meet. Made $2000 gross first month. Quit a $60,000/year job. Wondered how smart I was.

November 2005 – Hired a professional photographer to help do the photo work, so I could sell more, and do just the back end virtual tour assembly.

2006 – Spent the year knocking on doors in Aspen, Crested Butte, Telluride, and other markets, pretty much anywhere within two hours of our home base. Continued to sell to the higher end of the market, since most folks didn’t want to spend over $100. We developed a product that included awesome photos for print, web, and the virtual tour, and sold it for $400 or more. Did $100,000 in our first full year.

2007 – Our relentless pursuit of sales yielded the opportunity to gain contracts with several of the biggest brokerages in Aspen and Crested Butte and we partnered with a website company to extend our capability to do websites specifically for real estate agents. We ended up buying out that website company in September of 2007 on our second anniversary. We have up to four contract photographers. Did $200,000 our second full year.

2008 – We quit doing most of the computer work, kept chasing more website business and photography/virtual tour business, focusing on just those two things for our growth. Began working on developing a real estate video product for the Aspen market this spring, and put together a team of pros to help us do just that, We’ve done five already! Shot over 50 properties in June alone! And we’re on pace to do over $400,000 in total sales this year!

We have leveraged every little technical advantage that RTV has brought to the table over the last three years. They have continued to improve the stitching software, the online tour management system, the supporting materials (marketing, panoriders with single property websites, floorplans, etc.).

RTV’s commitment to continuous improvement of both product offerings and service for those of us on the front lines has been tremendous. They have enabled us to do in excess of 500 virtual tours since we started! Choosing RTV after a great deal of research three years ago was the best decision we made at the beginning of our adventure.

Commit yourself to the highest quality of product and service, and be determined to work through the slow times and never give up! We had our two biggest months ever in May and June, even in the ‘down market’!

Now get out there and be successful!
