How would you like to market your home and know that 71% of the buyers out there are going to see it? You can do it, and it doesn’t mean having to sit through days of open house time or tour dates. Listing your home online will get the greatest audience possible to view your home. 71% of home buyers surveyed said that they started their search on the Internet.
When you list your home you will want to include all of the information that is listed on the typical MLS page such as square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, garage space, lot size and price. But in addition you will be able to show your potential buyer even more by including great photos of your home. Curb appeal is huge when trying to get your home to stand out from the others listed online. Be sure to capture all of the best features of your home and the yard. A great view from a big window can show the quiet tranquility of a big backyard. Also include any unique features that buyers won’t find in other homes. If you have a chef’s kitchen, show it in a picture. If you installed theater quality seating in your movie room, then get a great picture of that. Give the buyers a reason to get in the car and drive over to your home. And give them great features that they have already decided they want and need in a home so they feel a connection before even entering the front door.
When prepping for a viewing, be certain that the yard is immaculate and that the front door is bright and inviting. Soft music and the smell of fresh baked goods will make the buyer feel at home and excited to see the rest of the home. Natural light, no clutter and high end appliances will have buyers lining up at your door after viewing your online posting. And you will know that they are serious buyers if they have taken the time to view your listing and pictures and then have driven over to see your Scottsdale house.
