Live Next Door to Warren Buffett for Shares of Berkshire Hathaway

Every first weekend in May, tens of thousands make the pilgrimage to Omaha to listen to legendary investor Warren Buffett and his vice chairman, Charlie Munger, take questions at the annual Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Conference. 

This year shareholders and attendees were surprised to learn they have the opportunity to live next door to one of the word's most prolific investors, the "Oracle of Omaha" himself. 

However, as Time, Inc. has reported, "Getting to call the Berkshire Hathaway CEO your neighbor won't come cheap." The property, located at 225 S. 55th St., Omaha, NE 68132, as the Berkshire Hathaway Home Services yard sign promoted, is available for "10 Class A Shares," no cash offers. Berkshire Class A stock opened today at $217K per share, so this lovely brick home from the 1920's could be yours for just north of $2 Million. But hurry, as Berkshire stock continues to rise steadily and surely.

"Given that many are willing to pay up for Buffett’s time and former possessions—including one man who paid more than $2 million to lunch with the Berkshire CEO and one who splurged for his old Cadillac—it seems reasonable to think that a buyer might pay a premium to become neighbors with Mr. Buffet,"  says Huston the current owner of this home. 

You can learn more about the property, see more photos and tour the home at LiveNextToWarrenBuffet.com. The home ReallyThere would love to 3D scan is Mr. Buffett's beautiful, yet modest 5-bedroom he purchased in 1958 for $31,500 and still calls his primary residence. 

 

The Power of 3D Tours as a Selling Tool

Video tours of real estate listings are a nice perk for house hunters and can be an impressive tool at the ready for agents, but how important is it for agents to understand and use video tours?

This past February at Inman’s Real Estate Connect conference in NYC, John Passerini,VP Interactive Marketing for Sotheby’s International Realty, asserted that video is an absolute necessity for realtors in 2015. “Consumers are ready to consume video, that’s the way they want to experience properties.” Throughout the day, realtors and vendors alike agreed that the use of real estate video tours are no longer optional. The question is, as a realtor or broker, what type of video will you use and how will you use it?  

Unlike a traditional video, 3D visualization platforms like Matterport, which takes a Google Street view-like approach, lets you be in control of what you see and when you see it. Fully interactive 3D models allow viewers to see virtually any aspect of a space from any angle.Video tours have proved themselves to be a powerful marketing tool for real estate, with consumers not only appreciating it but expecting it. If you’re not already incorporating video into your selling strategy there’s no better time to start than now.
