Tips for Online Real Estate Marketing

Are you trying to sell your home?  While there are many legal requirements involved in negotiating a sales contract and transferring ownership of real property, many parts of the sales process can be addressed without the services of an attorney.  Follow these recommendations from the real estate professionals for successfully marketing your home for sale.

There are many options for building free websites.  Develop a website from one of the many templates available. Secure the address of the property for the domain name. This will help increase your visibility on search engine results.  Gather all the information possible about your home. The home specifications should include square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms and size of the lot. Provide information on the age of improvements including HVAC system upgrades, roof replacement and any other large systems in the home. Gather the tax information and homeowner’s association information if applicable.  The website should also include information on the schools that are within the home’s designated district.

After thoroughly cleaning and staging your home, take multiple photos for placement on the website. If your photography skills are lacking, enlist the services of a friend.  Upload the photographs to the website. Finally, include the asking price of the home and contact information.

Considering holding an open house to attract potential buyers. List the open house on the website and put signs out in the neighborhood. A bouquet of balloons on the mailbox will alert prospects to the location. Take advantage of the awesome savings offered by Groupon coupons and make a selection of food items from  HelloFresh to serve at the open house. Have printed sheets with the information from your website to give to prospects that tour the home during the open house. Best of luck to you!
