Nowadays, 95% of people who buy real estate search online. They do not only see your property posted but also other properties as well. It just takes a lot of common sense to make your property attractive to potential buyers. The aim is to make your prospective buyer pre-select your property and schedule a site visit. Here are the top ten tips to consider in making your property appealing and saleable.
1. Advertise the Property on Google
If you want to attract more buyers, you should also consider advertising your property. In addition to searching on Google, potential buyers often look at property listings on real estate websites and apps. Consider using these platforms to advertise your property and showcase its unique features and benefits. By advertising your property effectively, you can increase its visibility and attract more potential buyers, ultimately helping you to sell or lease your property faster and for a better price.
Select the top 5 similar properties based on their lot area, floor area, and proximity to the urban commercial center. Make sure your price is at least 5% to 10% lower than theirs. In this way when actual buyers search Google and compare different properties, your property will be likely to be considered.
Most sellers have a hard time selling their property because the price they perceived for their property is way high than what the market is willing to pay for it. Doing some online research will surprise you that your property might cost more than you expected or sometimes will educate you not to expect too much. If you do not like the price the market wants to pay better hold on to your property or have it developed into a cashflow-producing asset.
2. Good Quality Pictures Make a Difference
A picture paints a thousand words. For example, your House costs $300,000 to make it look like $800,000 in pictures, according to the Local Records Office. Make sure that your pictures are far better than the top 5 similar benchmarked properties offered online. You can search YouTube tutorials on how to take good real estate photographs. Also, I recommend you hire a professional photographer especially if you want your photos done well.
3. Description is Key
Looking to advertise your property? Words have the power to evoke emotions such as excitement, joy, and happiness in potential buyers. It’s important to ensure that your property’s description creates a desire in the reader to own it. If you’re struggling to write a compelling description, don’t worry! We can help you out.

4. Detailed Information
Describe your property accurately such as type of ownership, lot area, floor area, number of bathrooms, present condition, age of the house/building, renovations, appliances and fixtures, and other things or perks included with the purchase.
5. Pinpoint the Area
Advertising your location is crucial to making your property more desirable to potential buyers or renters. If your location is already desirable, highlighting nearby landmarks can further enhance its appeal. On the other hand, if your location isn’t considered desirable, emphasizing the nearby landmarks can make it more attractive to potential clients. By precisely pinpointing all the nearest landmarks within a mile or two radius of your property, you can make your location more attractive and increase the chances of selling or renting your property.
