3 Tools To Sell Your Home Online

Updated on March 31, 2012

Selling of your home in any market is a stressful situation. Almost as stressful for the buyer who is buying your home. But, there are ways that you can get your house listed and shown right from someone’s living room. That is by leveraging the internet as one of your main tools to get as much information about your property as possible. Most home owners know that it is not a matter of if your hose is listed online. But, how it is listed that will get it on as many computer screens as possible.

Do You Use Online Tools To Sell Your Home

If, your home is correctly marketed online using the proper tools then more people will come and see your home in person. You can give information about your home from the sizes of bedrooms, yard acreage, and even photos. This gives potential buyers the opportunity to see your home before visiting to see if it matches what they are looking for. I have listed some help for those who need to figure out how to use the internet to their advantage.

1. Listing your home on the internet.

Listing your home on the internet is done through a multitude of venue sources. The buyers can use the multiple listing services that are available to sell their home by for sale by owner. These sites offer you all the necessary places to place information about your home. Most of these sites have a small fee associated with them, but if you are selling on your own it is a small price to pay. These sites will list your home in the main MLS database for a nationwide search, but will also list it locally for searches. They also offer additional consultation for a little more which also includes for sale signs, customized brochures, and even 24 hour question and answers with a live real-estate agent. If, you want to list our home along with a real-estate agent you can use other web resources to do so as well. The best way to go about creating a listing is be as specific as possible with the information and then use that information as a template to advertise all around the internet.

2. Using the Internet and a Realtor

When it comes to selling a home having a professional do it just causes a lot less stress on the seller. But, if you are willing to tackle it on your own you can save that 6 percent hefty commission fee. You can use the internet to help you find a real estate agent that you can set the commission for to handle the final bill of sale to the buyers. You will be responsible for the advertising, showing, and initial negotiation of your home. If, you are experienced in negotiation contracts you may not need a broker, but sometimes sales contacted can get lengthy and complicated. Having a real estate broker to help you out in those situations is worth it as well.

3. Virtual tours

The best way to advertise and provide buyers with a real experience from their living room is to use the process of a virtual tour. If, the home does not at least have any photos the buyers are going to wonder what is wrong with the property. Even better is if you can rent a camcorder if you do not have one and film a complete walk around your home and into every room doing it 350 degrees. This gives the buyers the impressions that they are looking for. Pay special attention to details that may help the seller’s flow of emotions go. Following some of these simple steps will be able to help sell your home faster.
