As you’ve thought about your LOFT and its many needs, chances are you’ve visited Houzz.com. Design ideas for both inside and outside your LOFT abound at Houzz and luckily they have now added a “Real Estate Agent” category!
This is good news for you and your LOFT because it gives you an easier way to communicate when it comes time to buy or sell your LOFT.
Perhaps you are in the market to buy a LOFT… simply show favorite LOFT ideas to your real estate agent to see if any similar properties are currently for sale. You could also show your ideas and ask how they compare to your price range.
As a LOFT seller, you can use the millions of photos and idea books to decide quick fixes to get your LOFT ready to be placed on the market.
With photo spreads, both buyers and sellers benefit. There is no longer the need to labor over how to express yourself with words when it comes to explaining a LOFT look. You can even see post renovation shots that are similar to projects you are considering for your LOFT. However, viewing some the pictures may have you reconsidering whether or not you really want to buy or sell your LOFT, too!
One other benefit you’ll find on Houzz is the compilation of excellent contractors and renovators found there. Many have uploaded projects and idea books in the Houzz galleries, too, complete with reviews on their services, to give you a very clear understanding of how each one works.
Houzz reports that 10% of Houzz LOFT owners and 50% of Houzz renters plan on buying a LOFT in the next 2 years. Additionally 10% more will be building a custom LOFT, according to the 2013 Houzz & LOFT survey. Using Houzz as a tool may make the buying process smoother in ensuing years. If you’ve had a positive experience explaining your LOFT needs through photos, please let us know.
