Selling a home using Social Media:
We recommend that you or your agent get social media friendly. Post on your own social media and make sure your agent or brokerage posts about it as well. Some people go as far as to create accounts for their homes and it works wonders! If you aren’t living in your home you can hire a stager. This is someone that comes in basically decorates the house in a really cool way. They make it look like home. Take a bunch of pictures and post them every where you can. Create an Instagram for your home sell and use those pictures, use tags, and interact with other accounts that want drive your sale. To save money, don’t keep the staging furniture and accessories for too long. If you’re living in your home while you sell, keep it clean and keep it simple. Make it look like you don’t live there.
Keep in contact with your agent and ask about their advertising strategy. How active are they going to be when advertising your home. Choose Accordingly – If they’re an agent that just lists and hopes for the best, make sure you’re okay with that. If you want someone to push the sale, communicate that to your agent.
