Selling a house sure has changed a lot since the last time we did it!
This shouldn’t be a surprise. As you would expect, technology and social media have been brought strongly into the mix. Yesterday a professional photographer come out to take pictures of our happy homestead, and now they’re on the web. You can find the link to the photos, taken on a rainy afternoon, here. Our realtor also instantly prepared glossy brochures with the photos and a description of our house and neighborhood that are resting on our kitchen island, ready to be reviewed by potential buyers, and there is a basket next to the front door with plastic shoe coverings and a little sign asking that visitors use the booties to avoid tracking outdoor debris into the pristine Webner House premises.
Speaking of visitors, there’s no need to worry about that potentially awkward seller-buyer encounter. In fact, there’s an app for that. I downloaded it today, and it is supposed to keep track of when people are going to be visiting. Our realtor also calls, emails, and texts, too, to make sure that everyone is on the same page when it comes to a showing. The only thing I’m lacking is an ankle bracelet to give me a reminder electric shock when it’s time to hit the road and let the visiting couple roam freely through the house.
