Learning More About Real Estate

After finally saving up enough money to use as a down payment, I decided that it was time to hit the market. I met with a lender, got pre-approved for a loan, and then started visiting different properties. However, I quickly realized that I didn't know as much about real estate as I would have hoped. I wanted to find a great neighborhood and know what to ask the professionals, but I could tell that I needed a little help. To point me in the right direction, I started working with a great real estate agent who was familiar with the area. This blog is all about educating the general public on real estate matters.

3 Tricks For Getting Your Property Listings Noticed

by Nathan Olson

When it comes to selling your property, the listing is the way that you present your home to the world. If you want to make sure your home sells quickly, you need to make sure your listing is designed to grab attention and move your home.  

Trick #1: Take High-Quality Photos 

The first thing you need to do is hire a professional to take pictures of your home. Don't just use your phone camera to take pictures of your home. People will look at the photos and determine if they want to visit your home. The photos you add to your listing greatly impact how quickly your home sells and what price you will get from your home. That is why you should spend the money to have a professional take photos of your home. This is a case where a picture really is worth a thousand words.  

Trick #2: Use SEO Keyword Phrases 

When you create the listing for the properties, you need to make sure you are using search engine optimization (SEO) keyword phrases in the property listing. You will need to do some research, so you know the most relevant keywords for your areas. Generally, you need to use long keyword phrases that are two to five words long and include local information in them, such as the city or neighborhood where your home is located. Use SEO keyword phrases that are relevant in your local market will help to make sure that your listing reaches the right people who are looking for homes in your area. 

Trick #3: Share on Social Media 

Next, you need to make sure that you share the listing on social media. Many people now turn to social media channels, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram when looking for a home. You need to make sure that you are sharing the listing on a regular basis on social media. For a platform like Twitter, you want to post the listing frequently because information on Twitter moves really fast. With a platform such as Instagram or Facebook, you don't need to post multiple times a day. One post per day will be more than adequate. Be sure to use pictures when you post to all of these social media platforms. The pictures and regular postings will help you reach people in your area who are looking for a new home. 

When it comes to getting your property listing noticed, you need to make sure you hire a professional to take high-quality photos. You need to add local SEO keyword phrases to your listing, and you need to make sure you share that listing on a regular basis on social media in order to reach the right audience. You can also use a listing service that offers featured property listings to help your home get noticed by potential buyers.
