With today’s electronic and digital availability you can make a social media page, a blog of your house, unlimited space for uploading and sharing photos, and use home publishing programs for creating cards, fliers, and brochures.
House Selling Strategies – North Charleston House Buyers: Selling a house isn’t exactly like it used to be. While it is more difficult than in the past due to the larger number of homes available for low prices, there are far more creative and simple ways in which to do the marketing of the house to potential buyers.
Home desktop publishing programs for the average computer user allow for the creation of some wonderful and catchy brochures. These, or fliers and post cards, can be easily made with templates on which you simply fill in your specific information. Add a few great photo shots to the flier and you have a very good marketing tool. If someone picks up a brochure about your house, that piece of information can travel through several hands before landing in the sights of an interested buyer.
There are many new ways to advertise your house for sale.
An open house is not necessarily a brand new concept, but the way in which you market it and invite people is definitely a new process. Use your social media contacts and create a separate social media page just for your house for sale. On this page you can add almost unlimited numbers of photos. With today’s digital cameras there will be plenty of opportunity for good quality and specific pictures.
One couple sold their house by doing a virtual tour using a digital camera. They pulled up in the drive and began shooting photos in order all around the outside of the property. The viewers could see what the view looked like as well, and got a good idea of what the neighborhood flavor was. Then they took it inside and did the same room by room. These photos were placed on a social network page set up for the house.
Another modern tool that you can use is the blog. Along with the social media pages, the blog can also contain photos, anecdotes about the family of wild rabbits that took up residence in the garden, and the block party thrown last summer by thoughtful and friendly neighbors. The blog can also give specific information about the house that would otherwise be overlooked in a brief spec sheet on a typical listing.
Make use of the availability of readymade signs that can now be purchased for a low cost. A banner stretched across the garage on the street advertising your house for sale and the price will certainly draw attention.
