Sellers now have the option to report their home as conditionally sold or “C/S”, they may choose to keep the home listed as an “active” listing. This is a clip of me sharing my thoughts on the matter.
For this exceptionally beautiful day for the first week of January, I felt it would be great to create a video from one of my favourite spots along the Bow River. We have a number of homes for sale within the Parkdale triangle and many more a short walk from the same section in this community.
When is the best time to list a house? Well one of the properties in this video that gets a “just listed” sign has just received multiple offers! So it seems today was a good day to list for that property.
There is good reason to take advantage of the low inventory the first couple of months of the year. While many people wait until spring to list their home there are still buyers out shopping around with fewer to choose from. Less competition leads to a more balanced market place and is good for the laws of supply and demand. Give us a call and we will help strategize with you to accomplish your goals of buying or selling.
This home SOLD 6 days after we created this video and had the home staged.
In todays Real Estate market it is essential to stand out as much as possible. We are always very eager to help our clients have the very best presentation of a property. We approach our opinions of home staging specifically to the property and the goals of the client and staging is not always our first choice. In this video we see how a home that shows great can show even better when infused with furnishings.
I feel very strongly that one of the most important things that we do as a Real Estate team is create a platform and use a megaphone to broadcast a message. For our sellers it is trusting that the home that is being listed is given a great representation and that the representation is easy to find. For buyers it is seeking relevant information from active professionals in the industry.
Yesterday I purchased “Apple TV” from the Apple store. It costs about $150 with a proper connection cable. It was extremly simple to install and links to our home wireless internet signal. In my home we do not watch much televison but our lap tops are our key link to the world. I upload movies from iTunes and generally YouTube is the source of my video media browsing experirence. (My staple is watching Ted Talks )
With this one time start up cost of connecting my new Apple TV all these search engines and modern media sources are streamed direct to my TV and are super easy to browse.
What I was extra excited about was to see www.RamageGroup.TV on a big screen. Both on the YouTube Channel and more recently to a Podcast. Both are easy to find and watch on Apple TV. I personally feel that these shifts in consumers media consumptions represents a radical diversion in the way people aquire information and seek entertainment.
There is no doubt in an ocean of content it could be easy to be lost in a sea of distractions. Yet I firmly believe that quality always rises to the top. As long as our focus is on creating quality content we can know that it is being the given the opportunity to be discovered. To todays date our YouTube Channel has had over 6700 views.
Building such a platform and a megaphone does not happen overnight yet with a steady commitment and seeking constant improvement I am glad the we are leaders in our industry, using the tools of technology to the advantage of our clients.
The Ramage Group is now has a Podcast. That is just another part of The Ramage Advantage!
