Doing It Our Own Way
I know it sounds old school and not very techy, but at Green Light Real Estate, we actually spend time going to, in, and through houses that are on the market. In person. Not virtually. Not with facetime. I know, it's hard to believe!
To make that easier, we always participate in the Montpelier caravan and the Barre caravan. That's our opportunity to get a bunch of local Realtors into our sellers' homes, and for us to preview other homes on the market.
But yesterday's Barre caravan was cancelled. We had three homes scheduled. So not only were we a little bummed, our sellers were going to be too. Made us sad.
We prefer to be happy! So we had our own Green Light Real Estate caravan. We lined up several of our Barre (ok, and one Orange) homes that we have for sale, and made our own caravan. Five of us (Kate, Kylie, Lindsay, Hannah, and Ray) toured the homes, became familiar, talked aabout potential marketing strategies, presentation strategies, and what might come up during inspections. Basically, we just gave each of these four home sellers five personal and professional opinions on how to make the sale go better.
And yes, it did take a bit of time on a Tuesday morning. And yes, we had all seen some of the houses already. It's just that now we've seen them all, and when we talk with people looking to buy a home in Barre, we're that much more informed.
Side benefit? We got to bounce ideas off each other for a couple hours, which is great for bringing the team closer together. That kind of camaraderie also helps our buyers and sellers.
Double side benefit? It was a beautiful day for a drive!
