Real Estate Sales: Why promote an Architect?

Tips and Advice

Everyone understands the value of an architect when developing, renovating or building a new home, but are you missing out on the value of promoting architects in real estate sales? Through a solid connection with a great architect, a real estate agent can provide helpful information to his clients and help them make the final decision to purchase a home.

How Architects Can Help Real Estate Agents

One of the biggest advantages of promoting architects in real estate sales involves explaining the possibilities of increased property value to potential buyers. Most neighbourhoods and suburbs meet the needs of a demographic by following some set of design and architectural features. As new homes are built and old homes are renovated within a suburb, new architectural designs start to take over. The homes that don’t meet the new criteria can be tough to sell, but by promoting an architect, you can overcome this problem.

Imagine that your client has a three-bedroom home in a certain neighbourhood. Almost all of the homes in the suburb have four bedrooms, but since that is what all the buyers want, the prices have gone up. Your client doesn’t have the budget to add another bedroom.  With the help of an architect, you could talk to potential buyers about how profitable it could be to purchase a three bedroom home and add a fourth bedroom in this situation. The same idea goes towards swimming pool additions, modern kitchens, bathrooms and more.

By promoting a good architect, you not only increase your competence with your clients, but you also add value for them by offering a solution and finding a way to sell their home to buyers who may otherwise not be interested. The best real estate agents go above and beyond to make clients happy and increase sales. If you would like to speak to an architect in Brisbane, contact Dion Seminara.
