Tech Tip of the Week

Consider video that sells a lifestyle rather than just featuring a walk-through of your listings. Logan Links, Marin County REALTOR® states, " today’s buyers, falling in love with a property is less about square footage and fixtures—HGTV has taught us all that we can do things like update a kitchen. Now, it’s  all about how the home and neighborhood will make them feel;  what daily life could be like in this new place."
Thanks for your support!
