If you’re trying to sell your home, your choice in plants and their position within your space may, believe it or not, push the less plant-minded potential homebuyers out the door. At the same time, if selected and positioned carefully, plants can take your space to the next level! So here is your guide to tasteful greenery or the do’s and don’ts of home horticulture.

Social Media: Using Video

The truth is, video marketing (as in having professional videos done) can be very costly and from an economical stand point, it doesn’t make much sense. Videos can cost anywhere from 300-2000 depending on quality, and that is a large amount to invest in all your listings. However, on that million dollar listing, it may be something to consider. However, you should keep in mind that today’s post is all about making some great videos the DIY free way (meaning free!).

Once again, just as in the previous post on Photo apps, there are many video apps, but I am only going to touch upon my two favourite DIY apps – Instagram and Hyperlapse (both the same company, but different purposes).

Social Media: Using Photo Apps for Real Estate

There are hundreds of apps that you could potentially use for sharing photos on social media, but I personally haven’t used all of them (I’ve used lots though). I am, however, going to share some of my favorites.

Firstly, I want to start off by saying that I highly recommend you take advantage of your smartphone with these apps, because it will give you more authenticity, it will allow people to connect with you on a more personal level, and people are generally more interested in posts that involve pictures or video (especially ones that look good).

Social Media: Scheduling Posts

Post numéro deux. Maybe you are already coming back for more, maybe this is the first post your reading, and maybe after this, you’ll never want to read another post of mine again. But that’s all for you to find out in this post’s topic on scheduling social media posts.

Carrying over from the previous post in the series, social media can be a lot of work. It is, infact, a full-time job for many people, and your first job as realtor is understandably and obviously real estate. Social media is just a part of your marketing tactic. Thankfully, some wonderful people have realized this and have provided us with excellent solutions to setup posts now to be shared in the future.

DIY THIS MONTH

In the upcoming weeks I am going to have a bit of spare time, and I am planning on doing some “renovations” within my home. Usually I tend to take the IKEA route, and I am probably guilty of electing IKEA as my go to option for furniture improvements due to the whole “IKEA EXPERIENCE”, I simply have had enough with the frustration of navigating through their instruction manuals, feeling my head about to explode as I attempt multiple times to put together one of their products. Therefore I have chosen to dabble into a new strategy. DIY (Do It Yourself)

THE WEEKEND MIX- RIB STYLE

You should attend because it’s flat out awesome! For myself personally, it is the event I look forward to the most. I mean the other festivals such as SunFest, Home County, Foodfest, etc, are all good fun, but the atmosphere during Ribfest is quite special. Then again, I could just be biased due to my affection for ribs. Nonetheless, even if you don’t want to devour some of the best ribs around, or if you’re a vegan, and it obviously doesn’t fit your meal plan, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy the weekend in the park. You can sit back, relax, and have a beer or a glass of wine while enjoying a variety of musical performances. There is also the option of consuming non-rib foods that do a better job of matching your meal regime. Lastly, it’s just a great evening activity to do this weekend with family and friends whilst relishing downtown London.

LTC TO TEAM UP WITH GOOGLE MAPS

The London Transit Commission has made a substantial investment into the acquisition of the appropriate software that will enable Google to be integrated into their bus routes, including an enhanced trip planning functionality. Soon we will be able to go to Google Maps, key in our starting point and ending point, and Google will suggest the best bus route, as well as information on bus arrival times. As a daily rider of the transit system, this is something to look forward to as it will facilitate bus navigation around the city.
