Strong marketing techniques can make the difference between waiting to get your house sold, and placing that sold sign on the front lawn. These tips can get your property seen by as many people as possible, which will increase the chance of the right person seeing the property and getting it sold quickly.
Take a Great Photograph of Front View of Property
Quality, good photos can make the difference in getting your property sold. People when looking for a home to buy, tend to browse online first. You want the picture of your home to stand out so that it will make people stop to look when they see it. Having as many photos as possible can make the difference between people passing over your listing, or stopping to look at it. To improve your photo, take this advice:
Crop out sidewalks and streets
Remove vehicles from the driveway or in front of the property
Take up close and angled photos for an interesting composition
Avoid shade on the house
Clear away any vegetation blocking the front door or the path to the front door
Include Other Exterior Photographs of the Property
Buyers are visual. They want to see the property before they even bother to check out the cost, amenities, or other stats. If you are selling a condo, use photos of the building and any other outdoor shared areas. If your property does have a yard, include pictures of the yard, front and back, so buyers have an idea of what they are getting into. Make the photos look nice and clean. Emphasize the size of the location as well.
Show Off Interior of Your Property with Many Photos
The photos do not end here. It is more likely that potential buyers will view a listing that has many photos of the property. If there are no photos, or only a few, people tend to not even look at the listing. Take photos of every room, and try to make them look as nice and accurate as possible. Here are some tips on shooting indoors:
Open up all of the drapes and blinds
Turn off the lights
Focus on interesting details, like the condition of a wood floor or a fireplace
Remove all trash cans and close all the toilets in the bathrooms
Use floral arrangement in the kitchen and dining rooms
Avoid shooting into mirrors to keep your reflection out of the shot
Include a Virtual Tour of Your Property on the Listing
These days, a virtual tour on a listing can make a big difference. It guides the potential buyer around your property right in their own home. Every home should have one, even if it is only two spins. Everyone loves to explore these. So how do you create one?
A good virtual tour will grab a buyer’s attention and lead them from room to room, whether giving a 360-degree view or through a video.
There are options to add sound, music, or a professionally written description as the buyer travels through the tour.
You can include individual photos available for download or to print.
These are just a few of the many tips and tricks you can use to market your property to sell fast. Also, use quality signage and print advertising (show off the property everywhere!). Open houses are also go-to when selling a property, as is hosting broker and agent tours. Using these methods, you will sell your property in no time!
