As the number of agents contributing to Agent Insight continues to grow, our collection of words and photos is becoming richer every day. Your descriptions of the communities, their special features and the reasons to live there are so appealing.
Prospective buyers can’t help but want to take a look at specific neighborhoods after hearing what you have to say about schools, libraries, stores, parks, sports, churches and all the other things that make a place home.
The two photos featured here show a lot of character, one of beauty and one of whimsy. Both will have appeal to people looking for home in these areas. These photos are fabulous as are so many that you have all sent in; each picture is worth a thousand words, right? Keep putting yourselves in the buyers’ shoes, asking yourself, “What would make someone want to live here?”
Make your stories as personal as possible – that’s what speaks to people. Introduce them to your community through your eyes. Here’s a fine example of an insight that is chatty, personal and full of information important to your clients.A Perfect Place to Raise a Family When I imagine a small town community, Allentown is the first place I think about. If you are looking for a town where everyone knows your name and people look out for you and your children, then this is the place to move. It’s hard to find towns that still close down Main Street to celebrate holidays and local events, such as Memorial Day, Fall Harvest Festival, Homecoming and Halloween. There are plenty of places to shop in downtown or grab a bite to eat. My favorite part about the town is being able to sit at the local ice cream shop and see people you know pass by. Not only is it a great place to bring your family, but it’s a perfect place to bring your horses. The town is surrounded by tons of horse farms and the Horse Park of New Jersey is right around the corner. Allentown and Cream Ridge are great places to live.
