Free 44-Page Stats Loaded Pitch Deck Added to WGAN Sample Forms Library

Hi All,

Gilroy, CA-based Coldwell Banker Realty agent - and real estate photographer - Dave Avilla (@Dataventurer) has created a 44-Slide PowerPoint presentation for real estate photographers to communicate with real estate agents how buyer/seller/market conditions have changed in the last 12 months due to COVID and why real estate agents should adopt virtual tours.

On WGAN-TV Live at 5 [5 pm EDT | GMT -4] on Thursday, April 22, 2021, Dave walked us though his real estate agent pitch deck:

✓ Adoption of Virtual Tours for Real Estate Marketing

Examples of statistics in the statistics-packed presentation deck include, listings with 3D tours:

-- sell 20 percent faster
-- sell for 9 percent higher sales price
-- 55% of buys would buy a property sight unseen
-- 82% would switch to an agent offerings 3D tours

During the show, we talked about how WGAN Forum Members can get this Dave's deck (.pptx and .pdf) at no charge.

Spoiler Alert: The 44-page PowerPoints is in the WGAN-Sample Forms Library.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
KoaWare is excited to officially announce bldr, the most easy to use agent & broker website building platform specifically built for real estate. bldr focuses on instant customization through it’s directly editable, drag + drop platform; as opposed to rigid template based designs, and the constant back and forth between account managers, bldr provides a library of individual sections to custom create a great looking agent/broker website.

The KoaWare team worked incredibly hard to create a fast, intuitive, and powerfully simple platform. We conducted an in-depth beta phase where we collected feedback, encountered issues, found opportunities, and channeled all of those learnings into building a bigger-better-faster-stronger platform.

bldr allows agents and brokerages to take control of their brand and make changes in real time, as new business opportunities develop. It allows users to focus on creating original content and building their own personalized, digital branding.

People visiting agent and broker websites are there to do their research. They want to find out who you are, what you do, and see your successes. Tell your story, share your message, and prove your worth to incoming leads.
