The invention of the interwebs, apps, the digital camera, and mobile technology has greatly changed the way real estate is done these days. Not long ago prospective buyers would see one or two photos of the home, then they would actually go to the home — like get out of their vehicle and walk through the home to see if they liked it.
Now it’s click, click, click … as 90 percent or more of buyers will make a decision to even visit a home based on what they can see on their smartphone or tablet.
Even though technology has enhanced the buying process and made it easier in many ways, nothing beats the old fashioned open house. As much as an app or digital image can offer, nothing compares to walking through a home to experience how the home might actually live.
The Crestwood Crawl
This coming Sunday, Sept. 8, from 1 to 3 p.m., the agents of Williams Trew Real Estate in Fort Worth will be hosting The Crestwood Crawl. Six homes in the fabulous Crestwood neighborhood will be held open for buyers to come and enjoy all of the homes first-hand.
The weather will be in the mid-80s. The Cowboys don’t kick-off until 3:30 p.m. Now is the time to visit one of Fort Worth’s best areas.
