Remember you can even mention small points like what fun things the house is close to.
- Highlight unseen amenities – Pictures or one liner sentences cannot describe the in-depth features of your house. The write up description in the listing should be utilized to highlight special features like broad garage, private backyard, or a nicely hemmed terrace balcony. Point out features that will grab a person attention to be even more interested in the house.
- Be specific rather than over creative – See words like beautiful or magnificent can be catchy words, but after drawing attention you have to say what materials or brands you have used to remodel the kitchen or bath. If you have wooden floors or have used vitrified tiles mention the brand, because it gives an authentic value to your house.
- Use decent and correct English – Wrong grammar and wrong spelling is the last thing you want in your advertisement. The language should be simple enough for everyone to understand. Be positive to not to make any grammatical or spelling error, because it will lower the credibility of your house.
- Be limited with adjectives – Obviously, you want to use the best phrases or adjectives for each corner of your house, but at the same time you run the risk of exaggerating and giving high hopes to potential buyers. Make your house for sale sound beautiful and give the expectation of what they are going to see once they walk in, because you do not want to give your future buyers false hope. Suppose your master bedroom overlooks a beautiful scene outside so an example line could be, Enjoy the gorgeous views from the comfort of your bedroom while drinking coffee in the morning. Viewers will definitely be holding you to that saying and checking out the views in the master bedroom that you promised.
People who have used Facebook to sell their home have said that walk-ins estimated to be about 30 to 50 a day. Sellers acknowledged that buyers that follow the blogs knew many parts or features of the house already before even entering the doors and that is what attracted them to view the home in the first place. Some of the buyers were even ready to make spot deals.
