3 Effective & Creative Ways to Market a House for Sale
One of the most important aspects of marketing a house for sale is attracting traffic to your property. The more people who see your listing, the higher chances you have of selling it. If you are an agent looking for creative ways to market a house for sale, this quick guide will be perfect for you! In this article we walk you through some strategies you can implement to attract more prospective buyers. Let’s get started!
1. Create a video tour of the property
Creating a video tour of the property you’re looking to sell is one of the most effective ways to get more eyeballs on the offer. This is because videos are more engaging than pictures and they’re easier to share.
Create a video tour of the property you want people interested in your listing, by walking through it with an iPad or DSLR camera while talking about its features (iPad tours work best for single-family homes). You can also add music and touch up the editing if desired to give it some extra pop!
This will give prospective buyers who might not be able to make time during business hours to see the property in person a chance to see the home without having them come over in person.
2. Offer an open house with refreshments and snacks
With an open house, buyers might be more willing to go look at a house they were on the fence about whether to make an offer on. If you’re able to host an open house, consider offering refreshments and snacks for those who come over! This will make them feel more welcome in the home and increase the chances of establishing a relationship with them as buyers.
Open houses tend to open up opportunity – buyers might be more willing than usual when looking at houses which could lead them into making offers quicker because there’s less pressure involved
3. Advertise on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
While businesses of all shapes and sizes can benefit from a smart social presence, the importance of social media for real estate really can’t be overstated. Don’t just take our word for it, either…
According to a recent study from the National Association of Realtors, social media has become an integral component in finding new clients and closing deals across the industry. Here’s a brief snapshot of their findings:
- 77% of realtors are actively leveraging social media within their marketing plan in one way or another – whether organically or for paid media campaigns
- 47% of real estate have acknowledged that SMM (social media marketing) yields higher quality leads compared to other sources
- + 99% of millennials (and 90% of baby boomers) begin their home search online (as opposed to in-person referrals)
The report also found that about 55% used Facebook for work purposes while LinkedIn was close behind at 54%. Twitter ranked 3rd with 39%, followed by Instagram (36%) and YouTube (27%).
Some of the most popular social media channels for real estate are Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. And while these three networks may be a great place to start when it comes time…
In order to effectively market your property online, there’s no reason not to explore these channels – YouTube for example is helping realtors in 2021 consistently generate leads for their business – all organically. The key is finding what works best with you: which platforms do YOU use? Which ones work better than others in terms of generating traffic/leads on YOUR listings?? What about blogging??? Do blog posts help generate more leads from prospective buyers who have been searching around but haven’t yet made contact…? These questions should all factor into how much effort we put towards each platform going forward.
