Interview with Shannon Corr of Shannon Corr Photography - (3:55)

A short discussion of the importance of great photography is important to the sale of a home.  Shannon tells about how he got his start as a professional start taking photos documenting his experience as a drummer in a band in San Francisco.  He then went to school and became an credentialed professional photographer.
Beyond being a master of the technical aspects of photography (lighting, composition, etc), Shannon brings an artistic perspective to his work that makes your home photos look more like a magazine than just an MLS listing.  He recently expanded his services to include drone photography and video work.
While Shannon is an exceptional real estate photographer, he is not limited to just properties - he has a wide range of services including weddings, lifestyle, and portraits.
You can learn more about his work and contact Shannon Corr on his website or on Facebook.

The Local Flavor - Take me out to the ballgame! - (16:12)

Shelley and Ed headed out to enjoy a long standing Florida tradition - Spring Training baseball!

We went out on a Friday to see the Orioles play the Pirates at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota and then the Pirates take on the Phillies at LECOM Park in Bradenton.  The best part? The home team won both days!  These parks are fantastic and the food is great at both so get out and enjoy a game before the regular season starts!

The Price is Right!  (How to price a home for sale. - (20:13)

Shelley talks about how to avoid the #1 mistake made in listing a home - pricing the home incorrectly.  If you price it too high then looks like other homes are more of a value and will sell before yours. She also explains why the "price it high at first and discount later" will backfire and may prevent your home being sold at all.
How can listing analytics provided by Century 21 can help you price your home properly and adjust it after listing?  Listen to this segment and contact Shelley directly for more details.
