Have you ever thought about selling your house online? The online house selling market is super hot now, so you are likely to face some hard competition! We put together our favorite tips to help you stand out and sell your home fast!
Go Where The Buyers Are:
With so many options online on where to sell your house on the internet, it’s hard to make a decision on which site to use. A good idea is probably go and look for houses to buy in your area. The first search results are likely your best option to sell online. Many of the top sites like Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com and Redfin have a great gasp on generating real estate traffic. If you list your house on the MLS though, these sites will probably pick up your listing and show it into their site as well. Whether or not you are advertising with them, you’ll want to make sure your properties are showcased well.
There are services that will syndicate your listing to many top sites, so you only need to enter your information once. However, make sure to check your listing on all sites in which it was syndicated. Automation can sometimes lead to the data being jumbled.
Consider Premium Listings:
A good way to draw attention to your house when selling it online, is to consider Premium Listings. For a fee, you can have your house to be on the top of the search results, increasing its visibility and chance to seen. If you want to give your property instant traction, it can be worth the extra cost to put your listing at the top.
Create a Property Specific Website:
A unique and interesting way to sell your home using the internet would be to create a property specific website. A basic website and domain won’t cost you much to get started. With a little SEO, content, and imagery, you can quickly build a site to rival the big advertisers when it comes to showcasing your house!
Use Amazing Photos:
You don’t have a second chance to make a good first impression! Having great pictures of your house, will surely attract a lot of attention to your listing! A lot of buyers will decide if they want to see your house or not based on the pictures only! That’s a big deal! If you want to sell your house online, you MUST have great pictures. It’s not that hard. A good cleanup on the house, get rid of all the personal belongings and clutter, open all the curtains and turn the lights on. That’s it! If your house is looking good, well organized, clean and bright, that’ll will make it! If you want to go further (which I strongly recommend) you can hire a professional photographer to take photos of your home.
Use an Accurate Description of the Property:
Be as detailed and as accurate about the property as possible. Disclose any defects but also make sure not to overlook the details that may be a selling point for a certain buyer. If you have recently re-done the roof, mention it. If there is a large and bright kitchen, you should mention it.
Watch Your Words:
When people are house hunting, the listings can all begin sounding alike and running together. A lack of adjectives will cause every property to be “beautiful” and “cozy.” Don’t blend in with the crowd! Use colorful language to make your listing stand out from the rest. Don’t just gloss over the ad, using generic words to describe your property.
Use Data To:
Acquiring, understanding and using data will almost guarantee you a quick sale. Using data, you will be able to:
- Run comps of recently sold properties in the area.
- Locate and contact the best agents in town. Online reviews will ensure you find the agent that is best for you!
- Study market trends for real estate in your area. Ask questions such as: when is the best time of year to sell my New Jersey house? What are the current buyer demographics?
