Updated: Apr 2, 2019
With City Beat releasing their much anticipated “Best of Cincinnati 2019” issue, we decided to put together a little list of our own for the best Cincinnati real estate resources. As home stagers here in Cincinnati we are lucky enough to partner with businesses across the home selling spectrum!
Whether you're in the home buying process or listing your home for sale these businesses are the best in Cincinnati to serve your real estate needs!
BEST CINCINNATI REAL ESTATE AGENTS
We’ve worked with so many AMAZING realtors that it would be difficult to pick just one or two to highlight. So instead, we’re going to share our best advice on how to select the best realtor for your home buying or home selling needs.
Most often people come across realtors through referrals, which is great! But you need to make sure the realtor fits your needs as a homebuyer or home seller. So, the very first thing you should do is research realtors in your area before you land on one agent. Look up their past and current listings to see if they have represented the type of home you are selling or looking to buy. Second, ask specific questions. Are they familiar with your area of interest? Have they won any awards? Are they accredited? Lastly, schedule a time to meet the realtor in person. If you’ve done your homework and found they are a good match on paper it’s always great to meet them in person to match sure your personalities groove. Buying or selling a house can be stressful and partnering with someone who you feel comfortable with eases the process.
BEST CINCINNATI REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHY
When selling your home you need to WOW potential buyers. Staging a home for sale is only one step to selling success. The other? hiring a fantastic photographer like The First Showing! First impressions are extremely important and most first ‘showings’ happen online. Making a good, or bad, impression really impacts the selling potential of a home.
We’ve known Chris and worked with him for years. He always knows the perfect angle for each room and works with the lighting to capture the home's essence true to color - none of that overedited or too wide angled stuff you see. He has a true talent for real estate photography!
Check out these amazing photos Chris took of a recent home staging job we did in O'Bryonville. The home received multiple offers on the very first day and went pending!
