Our REALTORS® have been working hard over the last several weeks helping our clients stay safe and move forward on their real estate goals. Ann Arbor homes for sale are still being listed, bought, and sold. However, the focus is shifting away from the traditional open house or showing.
Conventional showings are still happening in some areas. Still, many sellers are finding it's hard to attract would-be buyers through face to face events. Buyers have moved online like never before, and motivated sellers should follow their lead.
The solution: A beautiful and compelling online listing. The best online listings consist of three parts that all work together:
A well-written property description that captures and holds a buyer's attention
Eye-catching exterior and interior photos, ideally in several lighting conditions
Property videos or an interactive virtual tour to provide a sense of "being there"
