There was an interesting article published by RETechnology about the importance of floor plans for listings. See the article here. In this article, they reference a Rightmove study out of the UK that indicated 20% of browsers would not even look at a property that did not have a floor plan, and the users ranked floor plans as more important than the listing photos and property info! Wow. Now, floor plans have been more prevalent in Europe, but the National Association of Realtors also does their own study each year of buyers and sellers, and guess what, floor plans were in the top 3 in terms of very helpful info, right behind photos and detailed property info. See the NAR Study here.
As a FloorPlanOnline customer, you probably know this great info and present it as part of your listing presentation. If not, take this as an opportunity to differentiate at the listing appointment to Wow your seller with how you will market their home. After all, a seller was once a buyer, so what you present as to how you will attract buyers to the listing will just solidify your expertise regarding the right marketing strategy for the listing. The seller will see the difference and likely select you!
