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!

Welcome to the new Obeo!

Welcome to the new Obeo, where smart agents find smart marketing!  We are very excited to announce that we have re-banded and re-focused.

New Brand BoxObeo started in 1999, as a virtual tour provider called 360House. 360House quickly progressed from being a simple virtual tour provider to offering a diverse suite of online marketing tools, and in 2005 the company was renamed Obeo. Since 2005, Obeo has been the industry innovator of interactive marketing tools that allow the consumer to engage with listing images and floorplans online. Thus, 2010, Obeo released it’s “See You There” brand, to represent these interactive tools. Now, Obeo is releasing a whole new brand, called “Smart Marketing. Delivered.”

According to Mike Haugen, President of Obeo, “The real estate industry is entering into a new era. There are loads of vendors and marketing products, but very few of them are synergistic. Most agents end up dealing with multiple vendors, using multiple dashboards, and spending way too much time and money to market a listing. Obeo is on a mission to change that with a large variety of synergistic product and service offerings. Better yet, Obeo bundles and automates them with a service called EasyEdge, that saves the real estate professional both money and time.”

Grant Bigler, Vice President of Sales for Obeo, went on to explain that Obeo’s synergistic tools include everything from single property websites and floorplans to mobile lead generation and search apps. He explained that, “Data synchronization is truly the key ingredient. It allows Obeo to not only automate the creation of the marketing content, but to keep it updated for the lifetime of the listing”.  That means you’ll no longer need to upload images or log into 4 different dashboards to make a simple price change.  I think you’ll agree, that does sound like smart marketing!

Automation works!  Studies show that 58% of top-performing companies, have adopted marketing automation. Furthermore, 63% of companies that are outgrowing their competitors have adopted automated marketing. That could be because automation gives you the time to do what you do best; Sell real estate.

Mike Haugen, President of Obeo, concluded  “I am excited about the new messaging and our renewed focus on delivering world class marketing tools to the Real Estate Industry. We see a significant opportunity in bringing this highly fragmented industry together. We have a broad and deep national customer base that has been built over the last 15 years by delivering quality and innovative solutions. Obeo will continue to broaden its solution set through both partnerships and acquisitions of new technologies.”

We’re Taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The Ice Bucket Challenge. It’s sweeping the nation!  But for Obeo, it all started will a little #IceBucketChallenge video, from Obeo’s CEO, Glade Jones.  Glade has a very personal connection with ALS.  His mom passed away  in 2002 after a three year battle with ALS.   Glade and his wife Tonya took the challenge, and created the video below, challenging the entire Obeo Leadership team to take the challenge as well!

Glade called me out in that video, and I don’t take a challenge lightly… so, I took the ice bucket challenge as well, called YOU out, and made a donation.  That’s right, I called all Obeo clients out. You too, need to take the ice bucket challenge for ALS.  Then share them on the Obeo Facebook Buisness Page!

Glade also called out Obeo’s South East Regional Vice President, Joe Gaeta.   Joe’s fun video is below.

And this is just the beginning. During the month of September, we have challenged all our employees and photographers to also take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and donate.  Stay tuned to our Facebook Page, where we will be sharing all the fun videos submitted by our team.  Ever wondered what your favorite customer service rep looked like?  You’re going to find out not only what they look like, but what they look like wet!
