Every now and then in life, something unexpected just comes along, and you just have to sit back and go “Wow!”
So it seems this week for many millions around the world. I’ll touch on what at first impression appears to be nothing to do with real estate later on.
First Impressions aren’t always right….it doesn’t take much to see what was going through Simon, Peirs and Amanda’s heads when this competitor came out on stage.
The fact that its had another 1.2 million views (now up to 12.9m overall) in the last 8 hours is testament to that. Plus another 6,000 comments have been added in the last 8 hrs too.
Piers – WIthout a doubt that is the biggest surprise I have had in over 3 years
Amanda – biggest wake-up call ever
Simon – always knew we were going to hear something extraordinary
Parallels are already being drawn with a past winner, Paul Potts.
So whats the Real Estate relevance, well when Susan Boyle came on stage the majority had already made up there minds about her based on her appearance / first impression.
Many times when “driving – by” a property to check it out, you too may pre-judge that property on its first impression. Keep this Youtube video in mind next time you are tempted to pre-judge a property just by its kerb appeal.
And for sellers, now here is a perfect example of what perceptions may race through a buyers head when they have “first impression” of your property, viewing its so called “kerb appeal.”
In fact the same analogy can be drawn in relation to photographs of your property.
The Wall St Journal have just termed it the “Susan Boyle Bubble.”
Even a web site has just popped up. This is one person we haven’t heard the last of.
And just in case you are wondering about where Twitter is in all this, according to Tweetstats, the term Susan Boyle has been top for many hours now.
And finally just to see how viral marketing works there is the Demi Moore – Ashton Kutcher link.
