Wexford Park Home For Sale, Vidor, Texas

Virtual tours have gone high tech.  Marketing a home online is the most important thing your Realtor can do to reach the maximum number of potential buyers.  Reaching the maximum number of potential buyers is how a home sells quickly and for the best price.  

It takes more than pretty pictures.  If your home only shows still photographs online you are missing a key piece of the puzzle.  What's your opinion do you think the new interactive tours are more likely to get a buyer interested in your home from their computer screen?  

If you are planning to sell your home in 2019 ask your Realtor if they will market your home with a interactive virtual tour.  If  you don't have a Realtor contact me and let me show you the other special marketing techniques that I can use to help you sell your home for top price in the right amount of time. 

Happy 2019!

Sincerely,

Diane

Silsbee, Vidor, and Orange Home Sales Summer 2018

Let's continue with yesterday's post about the ten Southeast Texas residential areas with the highest number of home sales this summer.  Today, Silsbee home sales, Vidor home sales, and Orange home sales are shown on the chart.  

Summer sales compare 3

 

You might notice the average sales price in these three areas is quite a bit lower than the average sales price in Lumberton, Orangefield and Bridge City.  Keep in mind Vidor and Orange had a substantially large number of homes flood during Hurricane Harvey.  The sales of flooded and gutted homes at low prices is bringing down the average sales price.  

Of the 1o55 total homes sales from June 1 - Sept. 15, 2018, the average sales price was $179,294 and the average days on the market was 121.  

Which area or neighborhood of Southeast Texas are you most interested in?  Let me know in the comments and I will share some market data for you.

Sincerely,

Diane
