COLLINGSWOOD, N.J., April 5, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — According to a recent study, 78 percent of homebuyers begin their search online (*Note 1). With ever-improving technology, this number is growing rapidly. Barski-Katinsky Real Estate, a tech driven, South Jersey real estate company, focused on creating an outside the box approach to buying and selling real estate, announces the recent launch of its Virtual Open House platform. Barski-Katinsky Real Estate can now help their sellers spotlight market their homes in a detailed fashion which, up until this point, was not offered by any other South Jersey real estate brokers.
Barski-Katinsky Real Estate’s Virtual Open Houses can increase exposure to a seller’s listing by providing potential buyers with a 360 degree, interactive tour of each room. Web visitors can see the homes as if they had visited in person.
“We are eager to integrate this marketing feature with all of our current and future listings to provide our clients with the most cutting edge exposure possible for their homes,” states Ed Barski, Co-Owner of Barski-Katinsky Real Estate.
“In a recent test launch, we found that visitors viewed the home on average 9 minutes, an increase of 900 percent over the average time spent viewing a listing in the past,” added Michele Katinsky, Co-Owner of Barski-Katinsky Real Estate.
This spring and summer buying season is expected to be one of the most active since 2007 (**Note 2).
“With a hot market in the making, sellers will want to have every advantage in their marketing arsenal possible and Barski-Katinsky Real Estate is poised to deliver just that,” concluded Barski.
