In any market, buyers will have objections when you show them homes. One of
your most important skills as a salesperson is to know how to overcome
objections. The reason is that not all objections are the same . Some are
deal breakers, but most aren’t.
Let me give you an example, have you ever heard this one? “I love the
kitchen, but it doesn’t have granite countertops.” Or have you heard this,
“I’ve never liked vinyl siding on a home”. Or how about this one, “Love the
house but hate the paint color”.
How you handle objections show your strengths and experience as an agent,
and the best way to handle those objections is to use HomeSnazzer.
When you get to the homes, that’s when the objections will start and if you
use HomeSnazzer to overcome objections immediately you’ll reduce buyers’
frustration, and show them what they want to see without risk.
That kitchen without granite countertops is an objection, open HomeSnazzer
and show your client granite, marble, Corian, even cement countertops. Then
HomeSnazzer tells you how much the upgrade costs!
Your client prefers something other than vinyl siding? Show them rock,
stone, brick, stucco or paint the house with one click of the mouse.
How about the paint color objection? HomeSnazzer paints walls a new paint
color with one-click. Ask them what color they like, instantly show that
new color on the walls.
Your job is to keep buyers emotionally involved in the benefits of that
home. Once they own it emotionally, they will find plenty of reasons to
rationalize buying it.

HomeSnazzer is the only online application where real estate agents can show shoppers looking at listings how changes will overcome objections and develop the full potential of a home.
With HomeSnazzer you can:
Exterior—The agent can change the outside appearance of a house. If the paint color is distasteful—with a click of a mouse an agent can overcome the objection by showing different colors or an entirely different exterior such as vinyl siding or brick. HomeSnazzer gives the agent the ability to see what the house could potentially look like with an easy click of the mouse.
Interior—Completely change the house to see how changes will improve it. For Example, the house has carpet but want see how hard wood floors will look. Now, with HomeSnazzer, the agent or shopper is able to see how it will look with hardwood floors and it all happens with the click of a mouse.
If that is not enough to persuade the buyer, you are able to change color of cabinets and walls. If they would like white walls rather than purple, you are able to, again with a quick click of the mouse, change the interior of the home to display how it will look like after the clients have made changes.
Add window treatments, place furniture, add plants, trees and flowers with a simple click. Prefer stone accents on the exterior? With a simple click you can change out, sidings, stucco, stone, brick and over 500 different paint colors from national paint manufacturers.
All this can be done without expenditures to have the work done. Maybe they do not like white walls after they have seen them, HomeSnazzer allows many, many choices of products from paint colors or pavers in the driveway, maybe a new roof or siding is needed, all this can be visualized easily.
You are really able to get clients to start picturing themselves in the house. You can give a home more of a welcoming feel by adding landscaping plants and other accessories like entry doors, patio doors and windows among other things.
With HomeSnazzer you are able to tailor the home to the buyer. You can really help them start to picture themselves living in the home before they move in.
