Selling Your Atlanta Home? Don’t Forget About the Internet!

In today’s internet-obsessed world, you can find pretty much everything you are looking for on the web. Whether you are browsing eBay or scrolling Facebook, there is an infinite amount of information, products, and news. Of course, there is also the ability to sell, and advertise the sale, of your house! Amazing, right? The web is a great resource for advertising your home, and it gives you a broad platform and a huge audience to showcase your property to.

Harnessing the power of the web to promote selling your home can result in a variety of exciting things, from a bidding war to a very short amount of days on the market. Read our tips and how we suggest you approach the web and how you can use it to your advantage.

Use high profile property listing sites. Putting your home on a site like Zillow can put your property in the eyes of thousands of buyers. Buying a home in Atlanta can be a daunting experience, and with the many suburbs of Atlanta, you are likely to find potential buyers who are searching for specific criteria on a home, meaning less time wasted and more focus on serious buyers.

Use social media to get added reach. When you advertise on social media, you are doing a very grassroots form of advertising that actually has the potential to be huge, even viral. When you post something on social media, your following has the ability to take in the information, contact people they know, and also share it on their own social networks. 

Remember, don’t try to come off as a salesperson on your personal network pages, you want to tap into your audiences and simply state that you have a great home available if anyone is looking.

Start a blog. Having a place that focuses solely on your property on the internet is an important step to advertising your home that is for sale. A private blog means you have a URL that you can share with friends, family, on news sites and more.

Have professional photos taken. People are generally very visually motivated when it comes to buying big-ticket items like a car or a house. Have your home staged and get beautiful photos taken, and the images can be enticing to buyers who are ready to purchase a home when the right one becomes available.

Remember, even though the Internet makes it easier to sell homes and market them to a broad audience, nothing is guaranteed. Stay motivated and focused and keep up your efforts to sell your Atlanta home with the help of the Internet.
