I’m Andrew Neese and am proud to be one of Abingdon, Virginia’s top realtors. My clients say I’m one of the most innovative real estate agents in Virginia and they’re glad they found me when they wanted to sell their home quickly. Many homeowners say it’s the use of technology in every listing that made me their top choice among realtors.
I love using interactive listings, smart phone tours, video and hi-tech buyer targeting to sell homes and complete real estate deals. My success is largely due to my emphasis on tools like streaming open houses, social media and interactive videos. It’s exciting to be a realtor in a time when technology is changing the real estate industry as a whole. With more people relying on internet searches and social media to find ideal homes, it’s now more vital than ever for real estate agents to list and market their properties online. Technology helps me to sell more homes, which means higher levels of success for clients like you.
STREAMING OPEN HO– USES
I’ve had great success marketing homes in Abingdon using live streaming open house technology – it’s one of the most effective methods of increasing interest in a new listing. It works by enabling visitors to do a virtual tour of your home through the online listing. They can look around inside and outside, control movement from room to room, even see informational notes I’ve included to highlight special details when they’re touring a room.
Two weeks before I put a client’s home on the market, I put a ‘coming soon’ message online. Zillow and Trulia push out that notice to everyone looking for homes in the area, which increases advance interest in the listing. The message alerts potential buyers to the upcoming live stream open house on my YouTube channel, making it extremely convenient for everyone to see the home’s features the day it hits the market.
The day of the interactive online open house, visitors can use their smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktop computers to see a 360 degree, 8k walkthrough of the property. That technology means the viewer controls the view, not me! They move to areas they want to see at their own pace, and can look up, down, right and left with the movement of a finger or mouse. It’s also an easy way for a prospective buyer to find out more details such as the age of the home, its amenities, its features and its price.
In my experience, this interactive way to launch a home onto the market increases attention and interest every time. Homeowners want their realtor to remain competitive with technology so they can better market a house to savvy buyers who are increasingly reliant on hi-tech tools to make decisions. Realtors like me save time and money with live streaming open houses rather than wasting both on ineffective old-school methods such as flyers, postcards and brochures.
High Definition 360 tours of every property not only give buyers the option to walk through a home at their convenience, but also allow them to ask questions with the live chat option. It’s another piece of technology used as part of my real estate service where I’m able to video chat on the spot. The interactive tours live online next to an e-listing profile for every home. Both allow users to easily see all the information about a home, even take a 360-degree street-view tour down the block to see if they like the neighborhood!
In order to be the best real estate agent for my clients, I incorporate social media into every home listing. The benefits to every seller are endless – more exposure and space for additional information. For potential clients, social media allows me to list more about what I can do for you – my licenses, credentials, websites and my current property listings. Social media platforms allow me to reach more people with the right information at the right time to introduce them to their next perfect home.
IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU
My goal in using every piece of technology is the same – to serve you more effectively as a realtor. The service I provide along your real estate journey is the measure of my success. The use of innovative technology, combined with a personable attitude and a willingness to help clients on both sides of a sale, has allowed me to build a tremendous referral network and a reputation as one of the most trusted real estate agents in Virginia. I serve my clients and my community here in Abingdon with pride.
