How much effort is your realtor investing into selling your home? I can't tell you how many times that I walk into an open house and the listing agent representing the seller will hand me a one page black and white MLS sheet with a bunch of statistics on it. How is this going to help you as a seller? I can tell you one thing - it is not going to create an emotional response from prospective buyers.
One thing I learned working as a developer is how to market a home. You have to create that emotional response! You want potential buyers to imagine themselves living in your home and in your community.
As a developer we would often have to pre-sell our homes in advance of having anything to show. We would be selling from a floor plan, using view photos and a scale model of the building.
This is why I include lifestyle photos in my brochure. I include an area map so people know where the home is in relation to other amenities. My photos are all taken at dusk using HDR photography. I put the home first, not my services or myself. Many realtors, if they go to the trouble of producing a brochure, will have a big photo of themselves covering the front of it.
I always include a floor plan, because this helps people understand how the different spaces in the home relate to one another and how they are going to lay out their furniture.
