In the age of the Internet, most buyers now start their home search by browsing through listings online. In fact, 89 percent of buyers rely on tech in this stage of the process, according to the National Association of Realtors.
Home buyers are not the only one benefitting from online tools. Sellers like you do, too! Here are a couple of ways such technology can help you market and sell your home.
You can show your home to more buyers
Thanks to real estate listing websites, you now have the chance to show the rest of your home to a wider audience. You’re not only attracting local buyers, but prospective buyers from other states (and perhaps even countries) as well.
Which is why it’s highly recommended to include high-quality photos in your listing. Having a set of professionally taken photographs will show off the property in the best possible way. All this without buyers actually setting foot on the home!
Aside from high-quality photos, you can show more of your home by including a virtual tool of your property. It’s an interactive way to show the rest of the home, especially for buyers located out of state or abroad. This is an extra investment that requires the services of a professional, but it can also lead to more inquiries and even offers.
You can tell buyers more about your property’s location
Back in the day, buyers actually need to go to the property to learn more about its location. Thanks to technology, however, they can do that almost anywhere. How? By adding a map plug-in to your listing.
A map plug-in, such as Google Maps, allows buyers to get to know the area around your property. What are the good restaurants? Are there any schools nearby? What about attractions, shops, parks? All of these questions can be answered with just a simple plug-in.
Best of all, plug-ins don’t require the expertise of a professional. It’s because most listing websites like Realtor, Zillow, and Trulia already include such tech, making it easier for sellers like you to increase your reach.
You can now share your listing on social media
Thanks to technology, you can amp up your marketing efforts by sharing your listing on social media. Social networking sites, such as Twitter and Facebook, are great platforms to share your listing. In fact, 93% of traffic on listing websites come from Facebook!
When done right, a marketing campaign on social media can generate a large amount of leads. This, in turn, increases your chances of receiving offers from interested home buyers.
