Smarter Home Selling OnlineThe internet is part of everything we do these days, whether it’s reading reviews about the latest restaurant that has opened or reading up on world news or even buying a house. That’s right, shopping for a home is a long way from what it used to be. Now, people are reading home descriptions online, researching the neighborhood it’s in, viewing pictures even taking virtual tours, all from the comforts of their homes. The internet reaches every demographic, from the tech-savvy person to the baby boomer who’s looking to sell their home and downsize. People are also using social media websites like Facebook to try to score more views of their homes in hopes of selling faster. However, even if everyone’s online, not many of them are using the internet tools in a smart way. Many for example are not building relationships with potential homebuyers, instead sellers are just posting listings.
To use the online home selling tools in a smarter way, a person would have to start by posting information where people more likely to appreciate their home would hang out online. It’s kind of like carving out a target market for your home. By using social media sites like Twitter, a seller can target specific subject and attention grabbing tweets about their home. This can be one liners about the architecture or the big yard or the ocean view.
Facebook is another site that’s very popular but instead of just advertising within your friends’ group, try using Facebook ads. You can selective in where you place the ad, choosing within an age group and zoip code. By knowing who you’re targeting, you can place important keywords that will most likely attract that group. You can mention things like proximity to public transportation, or incentives with closing costs for first time homebuyers and so on.
The internet also offers the idea of selling your home to maybe someone who’s not in of from the area. You might attract people who are relocating or investors. This is an entirely different target market, most likely to do all of their research and legwork so to speak online.
