Home Buying at Your Fingertips

Proper Price 1

Home Buying at Your Fingertips

The days of asking realtors face-to-face for numbers and resources are over. Well, not completely but it has become less common in the world of real estate. This is because most fields are moving online and home buying is one of them. Some people say it’s from the huge growth of young buyers– they bring along their technology and online tools and everything turns digital. Yet, there has been no downside to this yet and it’s actually improved the home buying industry for them and others. The plus side of determining your factors online can serve as one of the combined methods you use to find the perfect price. Some online tools out there include:

Real Estate Websites
Since most of searching is done online, many buyers look at websites like Zillow, Trulia, Redfin, Realtor.com or other portals to find and determine prices. These websites are easy to use because users are able to customize their searches that best fit their home buying needs.

Most of the time they also include online pricing tools. The majority of these websites have free online pricing tools and calculators to use. The results vary, but they are good at giving estimates of how you want to price your home.

Professional Photos
When selling your home, an important thing to remember is letting interested buyers see the home through photos. With buyers searching online using smartphones, tablets, and computers, they want to be able to zoom and see the images in high resolution. The days of simply taking three to four photos of the sides of the house and couple rooms (with low quality too) are long gone. Consider putting money into professional shots of the home. This will make the home look it’s best and sell for the best price too.

In addition, if you want to use the latest technology to sell your home, Drone photography is another option to consider. Drone cameras can get angles of the home that professionals can’t.

3D Videos/Tours
Another method of online tools are 3D Videos and virtual reality tours of the home. With this, buyers are able to interact with the images and immerse themselves into the home, virtually. This can and will entice the buyers to think about buying your home for its full worth.

Online Maps
The number one thing future homeowners do when looking for homes is Googling the address. Therefore, making sure online portals like Google Earth and Maps has your home in their database can help determine how well your home will sell for. This is because buyers are looking at the community the home’s in and other conveniences around the area.

Social Media and Apps
Lastly, buyers and sellers are also using social media and apps to determine the best prices for homes. Facebook is a good social media site to use and highly recommended. Also, real estate businesses that have apps are useful. Everyone has smartphones, so being able to scroll through houses is something everyone wants.

By using these online tools to determine your home’s price, your home can sell for its full value.

Stress is one of the largest concerns when selling a home. Staging, managing finances and documents, and simultaneously juggling the rest of your life can be completely draining. However, one thing is certain about selling your home: it’s a lot easier when you have a solid real estate agent to handle it. Remember, No-One Works Harder to Sell your Home more than Joe!
