6% of buyers find home they purchase via open houses/yard signs combined DanSmigrod 3 10 daysWingman (1302): It is interesting and I would never thought it could happen that way. So instead of looking for available houses online they just drive around looking for signs "For Sale". There is no point to do it in my area and I believe anywhere across Australia. If there is a sign "For Sale" that property is almost certain has been listed on realestate.com.au and domain.com.au It will be found there and that where most people will be ...
7 emerging real estate trends in the new normal (affected Matterport Pros) DanSmigrod 2 16 daysdave3d (28): I've spoken to some folks from the New York area who said there was a lot of movement out of the city going on. I imagine this might have some demographic tie as some groups (millennials?) won't give up city living when their morbidity rates aren't significant. A lot of other inner city factors at work right now too. I'd think there may be a financial impact felt unevenly across income groups with lower income folks hit hardest (fewer first...

GlennTremain 1 1 monthGlennTremain (2061): Inman reported last year that 39% of buyers that used matterport placed an offer without physically stepping into the property.

Inman: "Here's a simple approach to making listing videos" DanSmigrod 2 2 monthsGlennTremain (2061): this should make WGAN professionals cringe. Mic quality up and down, lighting too and it feels like real estate version of pong versus the call of duty experience a WGAN member can give their clients. This must have been made pre COVID because he talks about not showing the whole house because they can see it when they visit....WT? Jus sayin

Besides photos, consider video, aerial and 3D In today’s market, many buyers are making decisions from afar.

Inman: Interest in 3D tours explodes on Zillow, especially for rentals DanSmigrod 5 2 monthsHome3D (2250): Dan's post from Inman is where this is going. It's also the only reason virtual tours have grown so slowly over the past 5 years - the PUBLIC (meaning buyers) was not expecting or demanding them. Now the cat is out of the bag as buyers realize what they could have had all along. And it's buyers who run this business, even though listing agents would like to feel they do. Remember, the "asking price" that a seller and agent agree on...

The listing and closing processes are being refined Sometimes it takes an emergency event to trigger change. I’ve been shooting 3D tours and videos for my listings for years now.

Inman: Redfin launches self-guided tours for vacant properties DanSmigrod 4 2 monthsGETMYVR (388): I hate to say it Dan. I really do. The more I see how websites and virtual tours ALONE sell the sizzle of real estate without an agent, the more I know the only reason people visit a listing in person or do a drive-by is to validate what they already saw online. The reason most listings do not sell is the price. Once price is right, anyone can sell it, such as an agent agostic website & virtual tour, sans the Realtor(R). Thus I can...

Inman: Compass is launching virtual agent services to keep agents in biz DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsHome3D (2250): Compass has sold itself from the beginning as "the technology real estate brokerage" so this is in keeping with their branding. Time will tell whether this is PR or they're really engaged. The real estate industry is entirely freelancers. Agents make money when escrow closes on a sale, and for the most part agents don't like spending their own money, their commissions, on marketing. If Compass is going to commit corporate funds...
Inman: Is real estate 'essential'? That's open to debate DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsphotosintheround (43): Clearly a gray area when it comes to Matterport, photography, etc. Here in Colorado, Real Estate "transactions" are considered essential. The order specifically mentions some essential services under the LEGAL banner. I am assuming that mean closing agents, title companies, etc. You could argue that photography, etc. is a service provided to an essential business. It's certainly not clear....and I doubt you would get fined or...

Are Redfin on-demand video home tours for homebuyers" different than MP 3D? DanSmigrod 2 4 monthsizoneguy (439): Because using Matterport instead of a Realtor walking around with her phone would take planning and incur a cost. Just marketing hype to capitalize on a "crisis".

Shooting Real Estate Video? This Might Inspire a Creative Passion Project DanSmigrod 4 7 monthsbryanhscott (756): @DanSmigrod I’m with @lilnitsch. On the scale of creative marketing, this is a bit over the top, but the proof is in the performance. Apparently, that agent attracted lots of business on the back of this video. Though it doesn’t say, I suspect the property was sold quickly and for more than the seller expected - a great outcome for all!

Will National Association of Realtors (NAR) Ban Pocket Listings? DanSmigrod 5 9 monthsbryanhscott (756): @Home3D You nailed it! Your characterization is the longer story behind these offending listings and is exactly why pertinent R.E. commission rules exist in most states. Pocket listings and double-dealing agents are a direct violation of the primary duty of any agent, which is "fiduciary," and therefore can't serve the best interests of the seller, or the public at large. The fact that either exist anywhere in the U.S. is not a...
