You asked, and we delivered! Six new brochure templates…

You asked, and we delivered! I am super excited to tell you that on Friday, January 9th we will add 6 new brochure templates to our library!

New Brochure layouts

If you liked the old brochures, fear not because they will still be available. But the new layouts will have some very important features:

  • Printing the new brochure templates will be a breeze! PDF files, will automatically be created and set up with the correct print margins.  That means your brochures will always fit on a single sheet of paper without adjustments. YES!!!!!
  • In compliance with the latest “Visual Marketing” trends, these brochures are all image focused with larger images than our old brochures.
  • As a result, there will be fewer text details.  That means no more blank spots on your brochure!

We are thrilled to deliver this new upgrade to Obeo’s Smart Marketing Suite of tools.

We’ve lowered the price of Virtual Staging and updated the furniture collections

We have some very exciting news! Not only did we completely update our virtual staging furniture collections, but we lowered the price of virtual staging as well. It’s a win win! You really can have your cake and eat it too! VirtualStaging .5x3

Studies prove that staging helps homes sell faster and earn a higher price!  But traditional staging is expensive, time consuming, and possibly costly if the moving of furniture damages walls or floors.  That’s why many agents have chosen to use virtual staging. Virtual staging can cost hundreds of dollars (even thousands) less than traditional staging and agents are able to avoid the hassle and potential dangers of moving furniture around a home.

aaaSierraOnly about 10% of consumers actually have the ability to visualize the potential of a listing. The other 90% need visualization tools like virtual staging, to help them see what a listing might look like furnished.  Show consumers where the couch might go, or that a king size bed will fit nicely in the bedroom. Let them see that the loft would make a perfect game room! These are valuable visualizations that alleviate fears and help potential buyers connect emotionally with a listing.

BouldinWe are proud to show you our gorgeous new furniture collections, simply click here to view.  But there’s even better news! We are thrilled to let you know that the cost of virtual staging has been reduced to $75 per image. This price reduction makes virtual staging an affordable marketing tool for listings of all price ranges!  Best of all, during the month of November, we are offering an additional discount of %15 with promo code SMARTNOV.  There has never been a better time to use virtual staging!
