Meredith NH – Frank Roche, President of Roche Realty Group, Inc. with offices in Meredith and Laconia, has reported sales for the 12 months ending December 31, 2018. The firm produced a sales volume of $121,625,552 involving 451 transaction sides. The company averaged $2.3 million in sales volume per week during 2018. The average selling price amounted to $269,680.
Roche commented, “I attribute this solid year in sales to our dedicated real estate professionals and our hardworking administrative and marketing staff. Their commitment to superior service, day in and day out, certainly made things happen.”
The firm is also excited to announce that they have recently invested in Matterport® technology in order to best showcase their listings. With this interactive 3D tour the users can navigate through the rooms of the home in high definition, getting an accurate picture of the home’s layout and feel. The Lakes Region can be a challenging area to market as a large percentage of buyers are from out of state. Often, buyers’ schedules do not permit them to drive to the Lakes Region to view a home they are interested in seeing. Matterport® is a game-changer, providing buyers with a greater sense that the house is the right fit for their needs. Roche said, “It’s similar to the amazing technology behind Google Street View, except people can tour the inside of a home.” You can see an example of one of Roche Realty Group’s Matterport® tours at: tinyurl.com/ycwrez5l
In addition, the firm has been working with a drone photography company, creating aerial videos and high definition photos of properties and their surrounding views. Roche Realty Group shares these videos of various Lakes Region communities, attractions, towns and water bodies through social media (www.facebook.com/RocheRealty).
Roche Realty Group has invested heavily to ensure optimum national and international internet exposure for their clients. The company’s affiliation with Luxury Real Estate and LuxuryHomes.com adds to their global reach. Over the past two years, they have made significant improvements to their website. Frank said, “On www.rocherealty.com, we have upgraded our search capabilities for website visitors with new map-based and gallery view searches, additional property features, improved photo galleries, similar property suggestions, and more. People who register on the site (for free) can save their searches, sign up for listing email alerts, and get notified like the pros when a property that meets their search criteria comes on the market. Our informative blogs provide a wealth of information about the Lakes Region and the real estate market.”
Frank Roche has been selling Lakes Region real estate for 42 years. He said, “I’m proud that Roche Realty Group has continued to maintain a group of very knowledgeable and experienced REALTORS®. I’m particularly proud that our firm has grown consistently on its own, unaffiliated with any national franchises. We are, at our core, a local, family-owned and independent firm. Today, we are one of the largest volume-wise, in the entire state of New Hampshire.”
Since 1997 Roche Realty Group has sold over $2,073,076,815 of New Hampshire properties involving 7,653 transaction sides and has ranked in the Top 10 Real Estate Firms in the entire State of New Hampshire out of 2,354 firms statewide reporting sales during this 21-year period.
