Stats have shown that over 80% of house buyers go to the web first to research and find houses.
So if your house isn’t on the internet… how are buyers going to find out about your house?
There are lots of ways to market your Springfield house online. You can list it on websites like Zillow, redfin, Craigslist… or even setup your own website for your house. Owners.com is a great source to list your property online too.
Then, take that property listing and get it everywhere online that you can. List it on all of the classifieds websites (again, Craigslist, Backpage, etc.).
Total Cost: FREE – Cheap (most routes are free, but some of these sites have paid versions)
Use Facebook And Social Media To Spread The Word About Your Springfield House
One of the best ways to sell a house is through word of mouth. Tell all of your friends and family that you’re selling… and have them tell everyone they know. Post pictures of your house and let the world know that its for sale.
Also, hop on your Facebook account and share the property listing from the various sites we mentioned above. You can share these links with your friends and ask them to spread the word too. You never know who’s looking or who might be interested.
There may be a person you just falls in love with your house. Besides, you may also get a friend who may link you up with a buyer. The importance of using Facebook over other social networks is that it is free and most widely used. Persistence is key…keep posting daily. You can even consider running an ad on Facebook to get even more local targeted engagement.
