Floor Plan Fantasy – Helping the Buyer’s Dreams Come True

Make your buyer’s fantasies come true. Whether a home is recently constructed or in need of a complete overhaul, the way to a buyer’s dream home reality is through a floor plan.

According to the 2022 statistical report by NAR, 80-92% of home buyers are purchasing previously owned homes. Reasons for purchasing older homes range from better value to wanting a “fixer-upper”. Here’s where the floor plan is important. The basic structure of a home needs to be documented to account for room size, ceiling height, door and window placement and location of mechanical rooms. This allows the buyer to connect with the space and visualize their belongings within it. Floor plans paired with 3D virtual tours are a real estate agent’s marketing miracle and according to Realtrends, “a real estate agent’s superpower.”

Floor plan basics

Fantasy homes come in all shapes and sizes but the only way to assess value is to know the square footage. Standard floor plans show accurately measured space throughout the entire property. Room dimensions are measured from the interior while exterior measurements take into consideration the thickness of the walls. Buyers will be happy to know their full sized pickup truck fits into the garage or know the dining room can accommodate the extended family and fit a dining table with 14 chairs. Consumers can get up close and personal while viewing the 3D virtual tour, pausing to imagine how their items will fit into every room. Why is this important? The longer potential buyers peruse a property, the deeper the connection that leads to a sale.

Going from ordinary to extraordinary

You have likely already tried several apps to measure space. Simple room measurements can be obtained by a few clicks here and there. When you need to impress your seller during a listing presentation, you want to outshine your competition. Show your marketing expertise by using premium professional floor plans that give the seller’s property an advantage with potential buyers.
