The most important part of marketing your property is trying to view your property as a prospective buyer. It’s easy to overlook flaws and undesirable areas of your own home, because you’ve grown used to it. Make an effort to view your home as a potential buyer, and you’ll start to see ways you can improve your property for a quick and profitable sale. It may help to have a friend or your realty agent do a walk through with you as an extra set of eyes.
Another important aspect of marketing your property is making sure you have a solid online presence. 9 out of 10 prospective buyers start their home search online. The best thing you can do is get your home posted on as many sites as possible. Facebook, Zillow, and Realtor.com are excellent places to get started. Ask your realtor if there is a place you can post your home on their website as well.
Once you have your home online, you’ll have to start thinking about how it gets represented. Again, try to look at your home from a buyer’s perspective. Go around your house and take a series of high quality pictures with good lighting to portray your home. At the very least, you’ll want pictures of the front and back of your house, as well as all bedrooms, bathrooms, and public areas. Take a look at other postings on your chosen websites, and take hints from them.
