Listing Your Home on the Internet

When potential buyers search the Internet for homes, will they see your property listed? The majority of them will be working with a real estate agent but they are also actively involved in the home buying process and will still continue to browse online for new listings they may have missed.

If you have not already done so, find out if your real estate agent sets up buyers with an automatic MLS search which will search for new listings that meet their requirements on a continuous basis. This will provide visibility for your home to numerous potential buyers who may be interested in what you have to offer.

A virtual tour of your home for sale has been proven to increase interest for visitors who are then able to see many of the rooms and get a “feel” for the house.

Your agent should also post listing information on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. A relative or friend of someone seeking a home may see your property listed and pass on the information.

An ad for your home should also be listed in the top real estate advertising sites such as Trulia, Yahoo, Oodle and Zillow. Craigslist, too, is a popular website listing homes for sale.

To see for yourself how your home is listed for sale in the above mentioned major websites, do a search and also “Google” your street address placing quotation marks around the street such as “123 Main Street”.
