A Word About Privacy
The SMARTePLAN® advantage begins right away for those who do not want their homes photographed, but realize they need to favorably compete in a crowded marketplace in order to obtain top value for their property. With a SMARTePLAN, your possessions do not have to be portrayed in order to market your home. This is unique to SMARTePLANS —- as the Photo Galleries on MLS, Virtual Tours and Video all DEPEND on showing your home’s contents….. a SMARTePLAN may or may not include photos, at your election.
Unlike a Photo Gallery, Virtual Tour, or Video, a SMARTePLAN does not represent your possessions or portray them. Some people ask themselves… “Do I REALLY want photos of my stereo system and wide screen plasma TV sitting in the Family Room posted on the internet, along with the address to my home? Do I want to dismantle and move them before someone comes in to take photos, or do a video tour … and then move them all back again. Or should we just move out first and put the house on the market when it is empty, after we move?”
Tough questions … because they all involve, planning, timing, logistics and perhaps a monetary factor, too. We can’t answer those questions, only you can. But we can give you CHOICES!
And SMARTePLANs offers each home seller a choice of how they wish to have their property portrayed that is just not possible for Agents marketing solely with Photo Galleries, Virtual Tours or Video.
You don’t have to spend any time at all getting your home “photo-ready” for us …. we measure around existing furnishings, and usually the process takes about 2 – 3 hours (depending on the size of the home, of course).
