Keen real estate agents may have noticed that, among high-quality photos and 3D virtual home tours, floor plans have quickly become a listing essential. This is not without good reason, seeing as 52% of buyers are more likely to enquire about a property with a floor plan inclusion (SmartDraw). Even the National Association of Realtors (NAR), in a 2018 study, found that buyers now considered floor plans essential to the home-buying process. All this considered, it should go without saying: A floor plan is necessary for elevating your listing.
What Exactly is a Floor Plan?
A floor plan is a scaled diagram of a room, space, or building viewed from above. While floor plans display the overhead layout of a space, they may also include furniture, appliances, dimensions, and whatever else may be necessary for the rendering.
Floor plans are an essential part of your listing. They prepare the clients for what to expect from a property and it gives them a valuable visualization of the space, measurements, and other features of the property. If you ever find yourself competing for a listing with other agents, a floor plan included in your presentation will surely help you stand out.
