Noticed, and SOLD! What You Need to Know to Sell Property Quickly, and for Top Dollar in 2018
With Marie Graham. Technology has changed the "how" of buying and selling real estate, at its core, but "what" engages buyers-and "why" is largely the same. And you know this to be true if you've been looking as a buyer yourself! Your listing photos drive interest, and in-person showings. They need to be the best they can be, from Day One. But it can be a lot easier than you might think to make photos that pop on those 2" smart phone screens! This very practical workshop will review buyers' mindset and decision process, then focus on what you yourself can do to get your property to its market-ready best. Participants who submit their own photos one week prior to the workshop can get specific tips and answers, as part of the event. Marie Graham is a Decorator, Home Stager, and Owner of The Refreshed Home. She has been bettering spaces in every ZIP code in Westchester County for a long time, and at this writing, 2017 sales volume of her Staged properties should be just shy of $45M. Register Online
