I print them before meeting and make copies for all parties at the meeting. A printed copy is easier to write on, in order to highlight different points. And it's something that can be left behind if the seller wants to keep it.

I tend to print out the comps and have my ipad ready to show them interior photos if needed. My clients tend to appreciate both.

I still prefer paper print out...I like to make notes and circle the relevant numbers. It is more impactful to the seller.
I print it all prior to the appointment. It's much easier to go through on paper and I'm in Florida (need I say more?).

Sometimes it is a mix of paper or laptop. It depends if i know i will have internet, i always like to print comps when heading to an appointment and it is easier than carrying a laptop everywhere. I always pull comps before a listing appointment

Depends upon the client. If they are techies, the laptop. Non-techies, paper.
I no longer do paper ... prefer not to leave any of my intellectual property behind for competitors to see. I will send the CMA electronically prior to the appointment. I either present on laptop of ipad.
Old school with paper. It leaves the info with them so they can look it over. Many times their eyes glaze over when there are too many comps for them to look at.
1. Let them share what they already know.
2. Validate their conclusion. I have yet to have anyone prefer the PPT to what is in the green folder.
3. Use CIS Score to allow them to set the market value of their house relying on their intimate knowledge of their house and current market conditions.
Paper in their hands. Our presentations rely on tactile involvement to maintain the focus and attention of the prospect.
The most useful is by showing them the competition live and in person.
I use electronic means and generally have shown them through an email.
Each presentation is custom for each client since each client responds differently to different situations.
I print them out for them to see.
I do a great CMA report with charts and graphs that shows the competition. Most of the sellers in this area still like paper.
I have the comps in hard copy and we go over them. If needed, I can bring up the photos of the property on a tablet to illustrate condition or features.
Paper that they can keep.
I have online PP presentation that I customize for each, i can also print it as a nice looking book ( via local vendor).
William Piotrowski - you have to find out what they like! A powerpoint presentation to someone who does not like to see a laptop when this important matter is discussed does not bring the results.
Laptop - the pictures are full-screen and show them the true picture of their competition! The thing that works best for me is taking them on a tour of their competitors - they seem to 'get it' quite well by the end of the tour!
I use printed information ans have my laptop available. I like to show how professional I am with marketing material and web presence.
Sellers like a copy handed to them so they can review as I am going through the Market Analysis. They are always impressed with all the work that was put in to give them a professional opinion.
Still paper that they can look at it later.
I bring my tablet and if they need to see it live I show it to them
I seldom print anything, a good spreadsheet emailed to them along with explanation and links is best for me.

Paper print out for in person meetings. We will also send them a digital copy as well.
