Optimize Your Online Listing, Step 1: Staging Your Listing with Virtual Tools
Last year, we shared a three-step system for optimizing your online listing. Over the next several weeks, we'll be publishing a series of articles that breaks down each step one by one. Here's Step One: Your real estate marketing materials should grab the attention of prospective buyers. From 3D virtual tours and photos to detailed floor plans and accurate measurements, you can make your listings come to life. The aim is to encourage consumer interaction to help form an emotional attachment to the space. Advancements in technology allow you to present a property through virtual staging to optimize the listing's effectiveness. Not only does staging provide a way to give a vacant property a visual rendering of a lived-in space, but it gives the consumer a way to picture their personal belongings in a residence. Staging, precisely measured floor plans and 3D virtual tours are the initial steps in the new guide for every real estate agent. The first stage Virtual staging for your online real estate listings is a quick and easy way to improve the marketability of a property. If you are new to the technology, your first staging experience will give you plenty of reasons to use these types of real estate marketing materials for every listing. According to NAR, over 82% of buyer's agents report that staging assisted in helping the buyer visualize a property as their future residence. 3D virtual tours paired with staging and floor plans also helped reduce the amount of time the listing spent on the market. As reported in a recent survey from the Real Estate Staging Association, 73% of staged homes sold for over the listed price. That's great news for your seller. And every real estate agent knows that a happy seller means referrals for future business. The play stage Give the homebuyer a reason to stay and play with your online listings. Using digital tools like Floorplanner allows the consumer to play with every room they want to envision as their own. The top four areas that buyers say staging is most important for are the living room, kitchen, master bedroom and dining room. Including floor plans with advanced measurements provides a realistic perspective of the amount of space each room has to offer. Placement of virtual furniture or planning for renovations is substantially easier when the home can be visualized via the staging process. Along with virtual staging, 3D tours continue to rank high with agents as one of the top real estate marketing assets. The accessory stage Think of your virtual staging as adding accessories to your listings. Like other real estate marketing tools, staging is a way to reach out to the consumer to grab their attention and give them valuable information about a property. Homebuyers and sellers alike benefit from staging. While the buyer enjoys gathering pertinent information like advanced measurements from carefully drafted floor plans, the seller recognizes that you are giving them an added service. Engagement begins when the consumer can navigate a 3D virtual tour, see the property's potential as a home, and imagine their furniture within it. Staged homes on average increase the dollar value offered by between five and 20 percent, according to the National Association of Realtors' Profile of Home Staging. That's good news for your seller. NAR reports that the most recent median price of a home is sitting at just under $400,000, which means $20,000 to $80,000 more for the average staged home. The elimination stage The possibility of a home being eliminated from a buyer's top choices can be avoided with the use of additional real estate marketing tools. A successful online residential listing is one that gets plenty of traffic from potential buyers. A great way to increase volume of visits is by providing details in an easy-to-use format. Consumers want to see homes virtually before they commit to visiting them in person. What can you do to avoid your listing being eliminated by buyers? Think about adding virtual staging to accompanying floor plans so the buyer can gain a full understanding of where windows and doors are to accommodate the placement of their household items. Advanced measurements allow for planning and managing space for any changes or renovations that may be in the future. Analyze the results of your staging to show the seller your real estate marketing materials and staging are working. Daily, weekly and monthly analytics keep you in the know and help determine where your leads are coming from. Details about the number of views for every listing can be shared with your seller to validate your marketing efforts. Important data like the duration of each visitor's time spent looking at your online listing give valuable insight into the level of interest in the property. Virtual staging is closely followed by sharing as the next step to successfully marketing a residential property. That's why you need to be actively posting, messaging and staying social with every listing. To view the original article, visit the iGuide blog.

The 3-Step System to Optimize Your Online Listing
Your online real estate listing should attract buyers, be easy to share and provide results to the seller. With competition heating up and sellers scrambling to get their properties sold, you can win listings by implementing a solid marketing plan. What is the first thing every real estate agent advises the seller? Get the property ready for real estate photos, advanced measurements and 3D virtual tours. The next thing is to use great marketing tools, like floor plans and teaser reels, that you can share on social media. Then, show the seller what a great job you are doing by sharing solid analytics. Think of it as a three-step method to stage, share and show every residential listing. Stage The reason you stage a property is to enhance its attractiveness to potential buyers. Every house can benefit from the use of staging, regardless of the age or aesthetic of the structure. Vacant properties often seem void of that personal touch, but when tweaked up with a few online real estate listing photos with the help of tech tools like floorplanner, suddenly the property comes alive. Staging can often require a somewhat delicate conversation with the seller. Asking someone to remove their prized possessions and family portraits from the walls should always be part of the staging process. Real estate photography captures the essence of a home through photos, floor plans and 3D virtual tours, so be sure to have clutter removed before the day of the shoot. The goal is to make sure each room in the home invites further intrigue, thus driving engagement with homebuyers while showing the seller how well their property is being presented. The seller needs to know you are doing everything you can to get their house sold. Share TMI (too much information) is never a bad thing when it comes to marketing your online real estate listing. The more information you can provide to potential buyers, the better. The majority of homebuyers are using online resources to find their new home. According to NAR, 95% of buyers in 2022 use the internet in the search process. What does that mean to you as a real estate agent? Sharing a property's particulars through every possible channel keeps your listings competitive. The details you share should be easily understood, captivating, and comprehensive. For instance, floor plans help viewers get comfortable with the fit and flow of the home, while the use of tag tools provides a better understanding of each specific zone. Where you choose to share your online listing is up to you. Social media shares on Instagram, TikTok and Facebook keep you connected to your targeted audience. Sharing is also a great way to build your brand. Turn those shares into likes as you get recognized as the go-to real estate agent who offers the seller a reason to choose you over and over again. Show Once you have completed the first two steps in the marketing process, you will want to show your seller some results. Companies like iGUIDE offer analytics so you can see the results of your marketing efforts on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Analytics benefit you by providing a comprehensive tally of everyone who views your 3D virtual tours, photos, and listing details. The data available indicates if viewers have accessed your online real estate listing via your website, realtor.com, or other linked sources. You will be able to determine the number of new visitors versus the number of returning visitors to the site. What does this mean for your seller? Analytics show your marketing efforts in a clear format. You can discuss how you plan to keep the seller's listing in front of the targeted market by using pre-populated and pre-designed posts right from the analytics page. When the property sells, you can remove the contents of the online listing from the web access. Show your seller what you are doing for them by sharing timely reports generated from the analytics. A happy seller receives up-to-date information regularly. No one likes to be sitting around waiting to know how the marketing of their property is progressing. Communicating with data-driven analytics keeps everyone in the loop. The three-step system to optimize your online real estate listing is easy with S, S, S. Stage to get the property ready to list, share information relevant to potential buyers, and show results to happy sellers. Whether or not economists declare the market bullish or bearish, iGUIDE has everything you need to keep your real estate marketing on track. To view the original article, visit the iGuide

Real Estate Media Trends You Should Follow in 2023
As a real estate pro, staying ahead of the curve and being up-to-date on the latest industry trends are essential. This not only allows you to serve your clients better but also allows you to stay ahead of the competition. The media landscape is constantly changing, and it can take time to keep up with the latest trends. However, following the industry trends is vital to stay on top of your game. Here are the top six real estate media trends for 2023: Virtual Reality Is More Favored One of the significant technologies changing the real estate landscape today is Virtual Reality (VR). VR allows potential buyers to virtual tour a property and its location without physically visiting the space. It also allows real estate developers to present complex projects in an immersive and realistic view. It is an excellent tool for real estate marketing. Realtors can create virtual tours of properties, making it convenient for potential buyers to view and ask questions about the property. So remember to keep up with VR and its continuous helpful effect on the industry to continue to provide your clients with the best possible service. Drone Footage Is Needed Another hot trend in real estate media is drone footage. Drones offer a unique perspective that allows viewers to see properties in a whole new way. 3D mapping is becoming popular as time goes on. It uses images taken from a drone to create highly accurate 3D models of buildings, landscapes, or objects that are not visible from ground level due to their height. Drones are an effective tool for real estate marketers. Given the demand for exceptional real estate photography and detailed property listings, this trend will be around for a while. Social Media Will Remain a Powerful Tool Social media is a powerful marketing tool in the real estate industry. Real estate professionals use social media to increase awareness, educate potential buyers, and generate leads. It is also a great way to connect with people in your community. Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter can be used to share information about events, news articles, or pictures of your listings. Get on TikTok TikTok is one of the practical marketing tools that can assist agents and brokers in reaching a larger audience and increasing their conversion rate. It enables you to present your listings and services to instantly catch homebuyers' attention. The app has become a popular app for real estate. TikTok's true power stems from its relative simplicity. You can create lead-generating material that indicates your authority on the subject and help position you as the go-to real estate professional in your community with a few clicks using the information you already have. Harnessing the Power of Email Email marketing is becoming a necessity in this day and age. More than an online presence is needed; you also need a sound customer relationship management system. This means that you need to send out newsletters regularly. Real estate pros need to send out more marketing emails to reach your business goals and connect with your target audience. You're busy seeking new homeowners for your properties; automated email marketing campaigns deliver the appropriate message directly to them. Real estate email marketing used correctly, can help you reach more clients and close more deals. Prioritize SEO SEO is a crucial part of marketing strategy for the growth of a real estate business. Building a solid online presence can help differentiate your company from the competition and grow your business. Search engine optimization (SEO) is optimizing a website to rank higher in search engine results pages (SERPs). This process includes on-page factors such as page load speed, content relevance, title tags, and keyword density. There are many things to consider regarding SEO and real estate. The keywords that you use on your website, the content you post, your design, and how often you update your pages all impact how well your website ranks in search engines. The most important thing to remember about SEO is that it's not something you do once and forget about later. It's a process that requires constant attention and care if you want to see results. To Wrap Things Up Real estate media trends are changing rapidly, and agents need to keep up with these changes. With the emergence of new media technology, agents and brokers can reach a wider audience and increase their lead generation. In recent years, online platforms such as social media, blogs, and websites have provided agents with the necessary solutions for marketing their businesses. Following these trends will improve your real estate business, whether you try them yourself or get in touch with experts to help you stay on track. To view the original article, visit the Realtyna
