Flipping, helping another Homeowner!

I get called quite often to help out Sellers who find themselves in a predicament when their home is not selling. I am thankful each time I can help someone out for it is not a good spot to be in. It is very stressful selling your home and buying another and the timing has to be impeccable, which I am 99.9% able to pull off but I do have my own formula for accomplishing this. Not everyone is successful in this. I am thankful for when I can assist.

I received such a call this week from a past client who referred me out to someone within their Church who was struggling with such a situation. They had already bought another home and were still finding themselves with two homes, for the previous home had not sold yet. So I went to work and did my research and made the recommendations that should have been made in the beginning.

You see before I list a home I provide the Sellers with a list of things that should be done prior to listing. I find that Buyers cannot afford to do many upgrades or needed repairs and therefore will be a hard to sell home. This home's carpet was stained and although it showed well that old carpet was going to be a deal killer to anyone. So we decided to be a step above the other homes in the area we would replace that old carpeting with Hardwood Flooring instead. This choice will help us stand out with other available homes for sale in the neighborhood.

I am anxious to see it through and to go out and rephotograph since the previous realtors photos were not only dark and unretouched, but they also were not shot with a WIDE ANGLE LENSES. If you learn nothing at all from me, please learn this. I paid over a $1000 for my wide angle lenses so I could shoot great quality photos every time for every seller!  This means the difference between you getting what you want for your home and getting much, much less!  Really I can't tell you what a difference  a wide angle lense makes.

Here I give you an example below. Please make sure the realtor you hire has a WIDE ANGLE LENSES or is going to pay for Professional Photos. It means big bucks to you on the sale of your home. See for yourself and you judge!  I look forward to hearing from you when you choose to hire the right realtor for the sale of your home. When hiring a realtor is is best to interview a few. I ask that I be in the top 3 Agents you choose to interview to list your home, thats all.  I hope that meeting me and seeing how many homes I have successfully sold and what I can bring to the table will convince you I am the right person for the job. 
Many Thanks~  Leslie  

Regular Lenses
Although the photos are clear, the room appears small and you only
see a portion of the room. Which a large family may then decide
this home would not work for them.

Wide Angle Lenses
With a  wide angle lenses, it shows how large the room actually is,
it also shows the many features it offers and how light and bright the room is. I think the Investment for any Realtor is surely worth the finished product. I think you would agree!

again... Exterior Shot with regular lenses 

Wide Angle lenses

This would now show a perspective Buyer that the home not only offers a Pool but also a large surrounding area and some beautiful landscaping. The previous photo may have one assume there is no room for entertaining, which may mean they are not going to visit this home. So what you put online is so important. One of the MOST important things you will do as a realtor and a Seller. Make sure you have done your homework.
