Want to sell your house online rather than going through an agent and spending thousands in commission fees?
It’s a good way to go. But the competition is high, so you have to know what you’re doing.
Thankfully, we’ve got some stellar tips for you.
Here are 5 ways to use the Internet to sell your home fast.
- Post Your Property on Reputable Websites
And you want to be where the buyers are. So, be sure to post your property on these sites.
Here are a few more to check out:
- Pay for Premium Listings
As we mentioned previously, the online competition is stiff. So, paying for premium listings on real estate sites is worth the extra cost since it puts your listing at the top.
- Use Awesome Photos
The photo of your home can make or break your listing. If your home looks dark or dingy, people will quickly click away to the many other listings available. But if your home looks really inviting… cha ching!
That’s why it’s worth spending the money to have a pro do it. But before you have them come over to shoot, clean and declutter. Get rid of personal belongings or anything that doesn’t need to be there. People need to be able to picture themselves living in your home.
- Write an Enticing Description
The description of your property needs to stand out as much as the pic. Steer clear of generic adjectives such as “inviting” and “beautiful.” Use colorful, enticing language to lure buyers in.
Be detailed. Highlight key selling features such as a spacious kitchen or a new roof. And be accurate.
- Run an Ad on Social Media
Running an ad on Facebook or Instagram is a great way to get more visibility for your listing. Target people in the city the property is in, and in surrounding areas. Be sure to use a good pic and text that gets people pumped about the property.
These tips should help you see success. But if you find that the market is just too competitive, or you just don’t want to go through all the rigamarole, you can call a professional home buyer.
You’ll still avoid having to pay commission fees, and you should be able to close as quick as seven days. Plus, you can sell it as-is… for cash.
