Hurry things along
If your home’s been sat on the shelf for a little while, advertising it on social media is a great way to drum up some interest. Follow our guidelines and you could be reaching your target audience in mere hours.
Have a look at your main social media channels to see if anyone else in your area is doing the same thing. See if you can find any success stories and get in touch: ask them questions about how they did it; suss out the potential of using social media and get the lowdown on what works best in your area.
Don’t advertise on your own personal pages: set up a separate account on your chosen channels. Facebook works really well as you can provide comprehensive information, plenty of photographs and chat instantly to any interested buyers. It’s easy for friends to share your posts.
Twitter or Instagram may have a better reach – avoid the temptation to pile on the photo filters though, you don’t want to get people interested who aren’t serious buyers. Make sure your page is visually pleasing and easy to find – think about what you’d want to know first if you were buying.
Show your best side
If you can, invest in professional photos – it’ll make your rooms seem bigger and brighter and show things off in the best way. De clutter, clean and make rooms seem homely with well placed lighting and fresh flowers.
Create intrigue: consider doing a walk through of your house, ‘Through the Keyhole’ style. And make it easy for potential buyers to find what they’re looking for with detailed descriptions of your home’s benefits. Is it close to good schools? Near transport links?
Get it out there
Start sharing as soon a possible. Get your friends sharing it. Widen your network as far as possible – do you have a website you could share it on? Link to it. And search on Facebook and Twitter for people looking for property and get in touch with them.
Fingers crossed the likes, retweets and messages start rolling in. When they do, make sure you’re on top of it – interacting with potential buyers will help stimulate and maintain interest. Check daily or you risk losing a lead.
