Not sure what this new way of real estate will do for you?
Watch this and then you tell me if it will work.
Technology is ever changing and so is the way people are doing things. Keeping up with the changes is at times overwhelming.
The way real estate is advertised, marketed and viewed has changed dramatically over the last 10 years with the inclusion of the internet, YouTube, virtual tours, real estate apps, Facebook, Instagram and the likes. These are now great tools to be using with the next generation of people being driven by technology. Lives today are driven by time and the necessity to be flexible, technology allows for this.
Gone are the days of circling houses in the newspaper to venture off to inspect on Saturday afternoon, or a handshake sealing the deal. Today’s dealings can be done from a far without even stepping foot on the property and with great success. Information is accessible at any time of the day, in any country, helping people connect and get deals done with speed and efficiency.
Next time you consider selling your house, don’t let technology scare you. Embrace it and use it to your advantage.
It’s easy to write down everything about your property but it’s harder to make it more appealing. Not everyone is William Shakespeare and has a way with words but we can give you a few tips to make the job a little easier.
Headline and Titles
This may the only thing that someone reads about your property so you want them to stop and pay attention. Whether it’s a Seaside Stunner, Renovators Delight or a Brand New Two Story Home, anything that can grab the reader’s attention is perfect. Use the positives of the property you are trying to sell and then see if you can make it eye catching/ funny / double meaning. You could even think outside the box with something unusual like this advert we came across from the US. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?? 14.5 Acres of Wooded Land for HOW MUCH?!
Give them a reason to keep reading. Let them know what they are looking at and what key features make your property stand out amongst the rest. In 1 or 2 sentences tell the reader what they are looking at i.e. Come see this charming double brick home that overlooks the nature reserve at the end of the street.
• List the key features of your property.
• Number of bedrooms (any built-in robes)
• Number of bathrooms
• Size of Property
• Garage / Parking Spaces
• Extras i.e. Pool, tennis court, deck, entertaining area, fireplaces
• Renovations/Upgrades i.e. New kitchen appliances, flooring
• Unique characteristics i.e. Location, views, wine cellar
Describe the features of this home in a way that people can picture themselves living in it. This is where you can use details and descriptions to inspire people to want to see your property in person. You don’t want to over play this area by telling everyone how FABULOUS your house is but you do want to give the readers an idea of what it’s like to live in your home.
Closing Punch Line
By now they will be so wowed by your ad they won’t know what to do with themselves so it’s your duty to remind them to take action and take it now!! So think about adding a closing line inviting them to get in contact with you before they miss out.
Hopefully you have enough information here to get started and write yourself an amazing ad to sell the pants of your property. And remember to engage your reader whether it’s by description, humour or pure wizardry. Good luck and good writing!
First and foremost it’s the money you will save. With South Australian real estate agent commissions sitting at roughly 2%- 3%, most sellers are looking at handing over a large portion of the money they make from the sale of the house (A house sold for $350,000 the commission is $7000 based on 2%). Then on top of that there is the marketing fee, for things such as advertising, signs, promotional brochures. While this may not be too expensive and you may have some money returned to you if you sell quickly, this is on top of the commission agents get as well.
Our clients have saved as much as $6000 on the sale of their property – that money they used to put towards the purchase of an investment property.
Be in Control
Secondly it is the control you will have over the sale. You will always know where you stand during the process, when things are happening and how much you are willing to bargain on your asking price. Everything is done on your terms.
You are the best information source for buyers
Lastly, buyers these days are a lot more astute when it comes to properties they are interested in. With more information readily available, buyers are doing their research and know more about the property they are looking at. As the owner of the property no one knows more about it than you, so what a buyer can’t find in their research, you will be able to supply.
