Facebook House Progress

Categories: Built By Facebook, Home of the Month, Home Selling | Posted: August 28, 2013

With the votes coming to a close and only a few choices left to make – upstairs carpeting, the Master Bath tile, and doorknobs – the Built by Facebook House is making huge progress in its building process. What started as an empty lot in our KempBridge new homes community in Chesapeake, VA has since become the beginnings of a beautiful and spacious Waverly home.


The new home has been framed, and the interior is insulated and sheetrocked.

We’re still waiting to see most of the choices our Facebook fans have picked, such as the kitchen cabinets and granite countertops, hardwood flooring, fireplace surround, and plumbing hardware, but the exterior color scheme is already starting to take shape. Colors were one of the first votes that kicked off this Built by Facebook campaign, and the Bordeaux Brick and Monterey Sand board and batten siding is already being installed.

Do you see a resemblance?

From the Mobile to Your Open House

Categories: Home Selling, Tips & Secrets | Posted: February 21, 2012

Today, people are on their smart phones and tablets looking for their next home before they ever actually step foot in it. They visit sites like Trulia, Yelp, Facebook and other favorites every day. So you need to have some strategies to help get them off their phones and into your open house. You can have a huge Social Media following and list every home you’re selling online but if your efforts are not getting actual buyers to the house what good is it doing you? Here are a few ways to get them off their phones and into your homes!

1. Invite Away
You are going to want to invite your followers on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and so on. It is very easy to create an event on Facebook for any open house you are setting up. Head to and you’re ready to roll. Is just sending an invite really enough though? Take this idea farther, make it fun and help convert your Likers into visitors. Use your Social Media and post a coupon on your Facebook page instructing people to print it out, bring it with them and they will get a $10 Gift Card to Home Depot. Or tell them to share the post and they will be entered into a drawing that will take place at the open house and they must be present to win. You get the idea. Read the rest of this entry »

How Can I Be…Different?

Categories: Home Selling, Tips & Secrets | Posted: January 30, 2012

Standing out from the the crowd is something you hear a lot about these days with the housing market the way it is. Whether you’re a new home builder or Realtor, there’s certainly a lot of pressure to “Be Different.” But here’s the million dollar question. How? What can you do to stand out over everyone else selling homes in your area? Here are a few helpful tips and ideas that might help you get started on the road to differentiation and more homes sold!

1. Know where you are.
You need to take a step back and look at what the market is doing in your area. Don’t pay attention to what they’re saying on the national news. Narrow down the specific communities you’re selling in and the area you’re around the most. What do buyers and people in your market think is important when it comes to buying a home, or even real estate in general. But most importantly you want to find out what other Realtors are not doing and do it. Find a hole that no one else is filling and be that plug! There are so many Realtors that are online but you won’t remember half of them. Why? No one is going to remember something that looks like everything else. Read the rest of this entry »

3 Mistakes with Social Media and Real Estate

Categories: Home Selling, Tips & Secrets | Posted: January 5, 2012

Social Media is in and on everything these days. You can’t look at a print ad or visit a website without the Twitter bird flying out or seeing the familiar Facebook symbols. But it seems like the big question for people with business or in this case with real-estate to sell is: “How can all these sites help me sell my homes? First off, I think it’s important to say right off the bat, that just using Social Media will not sell your homes. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, Flicker, Google+ and so on, are not the undiscovered Holy Grail for real-estate sales. What they can do, if used correctly, is two-fold. They will give a personal voice to you and your business and get what you’re selling where people are looking. Gone are the days where you can run a newspaper ad and be done.

Buyers are online everyday, everywhere, all the time. Using these Social Media sites with your other forms of marketing and creating a unified plan will help you sell. But what we wanted to talk to you about are
