The right stuff is essential for your AD!
Nearly all sellers want the exact same thing: a great price and a quick sale. Make sure you have all the information you need to attract buyers to your online ads.
- HEADLINE: Take a look at the listings to see which headlines grab your attention. These listings can be used to create your headline. Use catch words like spacious and pool. To set your home apart from the rest. Do not use subjective words such as great, beautiful, or fantastic. They won’t work.
- PHOTOS To avoid any sun/shade lighting issues, I recommend that you take the photo on a cloudy morning. To show the depth of your land, angle photos are possible if you are not or semi-detached.
- PRICE: You can get help from agents, brokers, and other online services to price your house. You can expect to get a fair price and people will negotiate for 5%-15% less.
