7050 Limerick Video Tour

When I list a property for sale, one of the marketing techniques I use is video.  Not just one video but one quick tour video and one full feature video to show off the property.  The quick video is used to market a property on social media.  The long tour can be used in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).  It can also be emailed or text to any interested buyers. 

Here's an example of a quick tour of this new listing in Dowlen West. 

Let me know what you think.  If you are thinking about selling a home in Dowlen West, let's connect.  I'd love to share the other unique marketing strategies I use to help reach the most buyers and bring in the best offers.

Southeast Texas Home Price Appreciation

How is the Real Estate Market in Beaumont

I'm asked this question a lot.  My answer changes based on the market but right now home prices are appreciating in Beaumont and Lumberton in all price ranges except the luxury market.  There is an inventory shortage of homes under $300,000.  

Low Inventory Equals Price Appreciation

This video shows some economic projections on how much the housing market will appreciate into 2021.
