Why Creating an Online Presence is So Important When Selling a Home
Tapping into the power of the internet when selling a home can help you advertise your home for sale and find a buyer faster than would have otherwise been possible. Here are some tips to get you started on the right path.
Use Social Media
Advertise your home for sale on all your social media accounts and encourage people in your network to pass the news on to other people they may know.
However, don’t expect to just put up a few sentences about your home along with your asking price. Add attractive photos and even short video tours of your home. Videos of the home for sale can be posted on YouTube with relevant keywords; you can then link to them when posting on social media.
List the Home on Online Portals
List your home for sale on all local online portals. Once again, make your listing attractive by including photos and videos of your house. If you are willing to negotiate on the asking price, let people know. Be sure to also include your contact information and open house hours.
Send out e-flyers
Electronic flyers aren’t hard to create. You can even make them in Microsoft PowerPoint or a similar, open source program. The flyer should include your best photos of the home and all pertinent information regarding the sale. Send flyers to real estate agents in your local area as well as friends, family members and co-workers. Encourage people to pass them on to others they may know. If you aren’t sure how to get in touch with local real estate agents, Google “real estate agents (your city)” and then check their websites for an email address. Most agents list this information either on the home page or the “contact us” section.
