Effective marketing techniques to help you sell your house
Having a great marketing plan will help your home stand out from the competition. A well-implemented marketing strategy can result in a faster sale and yield a better deal than expected.
Check out these great marketing techniques to help sell your house:
- Enlist a professional photographer
Nearly 95% of buyers go online to search for homes, with 51% finding the homes they purchased on the internet. Therefore, having your home professionally photographed is crucial if you want to make an impression on buyers – especially if you plan on featuring a virtual tour of your home.
- Stage your home
Staging is an excellent way to showcase your home. It means preparing the house so that it appeals to as many potential buyers as possible. To do so, get rid of clutter and put personal effects, souvenirs, family pictures, and extra furniture in storage. Repaint walls in a neutral shade like cool grays or warm whites. You can also hire professional home stagers who may bring in their own pieces to make your home look more inviting.
- Put up a sign
Putting up a “For Sale” sign on your front yard may seem old-fashioned, but it still works. A sign generates interest. It will be seen by neighbors or those driving by. Make sure phone numbers are large enough so people can take a picture of your sign and contact you or your real estate agent. A phone inquiry is a good opportunity to discuss the price and the features of your home.
- Emphasize the location
When you list your property, pay special attention to the location of your home. Highlight the great things about the community and what you like most about the neighborhood.
- BONUS: Hire a real estate agent
If you want to make the process of marketing and selling your home easier, hire an agent. A real estate agent has plenty of resources to get your home on everyone’s radar. They can put your home on different listing services and create and execute an expert marketing plan that will appeal to the market you’re trying to reach.
