Remember the real estate commercial where the prospective buyer couldn't get his Realtor to understand he didn't want a ranch-style home? Every home the poor Realtor drove up to was a ranch. Each house looked the same as the one next door.
The commercial inferred the Realtor wasn't listening, so the buyer should choose "XYZ Realty", because they would listen and respond to the buyers needs.
But perhaps the Realtor WAS listening. Maybe there were limited choices on the MLS input program under "Architectural Style". If you've been in the business a number of years, does this look familiar?
Architectural Style (Circle ONLY One)
Nine out of ten listings were submitted as "Ranch"!
We've become a little more sophisticated since then, but sometimes it's difficult to get it right when selecting the architechural style of your new listing.
The Jackson MS MLS has added a chart to aid in the selection of the proper housing style, and I thought you might like to review it. The chart is courtesy of our Realtor Magazine. View Residential Styles here.
