I doubt i’ll surprise anyone when I tell you that we’re a nation that’s becoming increasingly dependent on instant information.
- Send a tweet with a question – expect an answer within 30 seconds.
- Sign into a website – more often than not, there’s a “Chat With Me” option for instant help.
- Look up a new house for sale and see no photos – we immediately ask “what’s wrong with it?”
So it doesn’t surprise me at all that when a prospective buyer is looking at the photos of your house online (presumably your agent has taken them and put them online), that they want to imagine the home before they go see it. It’s much easier for a buyer to imagine what the house looks like, when they have the images to put together with a floorplan and/or virtual tour.
Being able to supply things like the floorplan is another way of getting the right buyers into your home, to make a potential sale.
So when you’re buying a recently newly built home, where the floorplan hasn’t been modified much from the paper version – keep that! Give it to your agent! All the information we can get will help us, help you.
