To get traffic moving to your listed home, here are some top tips offered by real estate agents, from interviews carried out by the Wisconsin State Journal:
Make an offer yourself: traditionally buyers wait for a seller to make an offer, but it doesn’t have to be that way, and writing an offer to a potential buyer can help engage them, Jo Ferraro, an agent at Century 21, reportedly says.
Use social networking: creating a blog and updating it with posts, property photography and a 360 virtual tour can help, especially if you’re looking to sell a number of units in a development for instance, Keller Williams agent Lynn Holley reportedly says,Invest in good property photography and staging/design: using professional photographers and accessories to beautify your home can boost its appeal, Stark Co agent Jim Schuessler reportedly says.
Engage: sellers should talk to their agent if they don’t feel their property is being marketed aggressively enough, Ferraro reportedly says. A property profile page should be visually striking online and accurate, as well as having “instant click” technology that lets potential buyers immediately send a text message and find the number of the agent, according to the publication.
