Congratulations on getting your home on the market! By now, your home is live on the Multiple Listing Service, and is in the process of syndicating to the major real estate sites such as Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com, as well as a number of other major websites. Now is when our big marketing push begins. We will be posting your home on social media and placing ads on Facebook that are targeted to homebuyers throughout the Columbia area.
In addition to our marketing efforts, there are a number of ways that you can help us extend our marketing reach for your home. These suggestions will help place your home in front of your friends and other area residents who may be considering moving. Due to the business restrictions, we are unable to do this on our own. We would appreciate any assistance that you can provide!
- Post your listing on your personal social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.).
- By posting your listing to your personal accounts, you are letting your friends know that your home is on the market. Once you post your listing, it is likely that your friends may share the listing to their friends, thereby increasing the buzz that your home is getting. We ask that you please post your listing using the Google Shortcode that we will send you, as it allows us to track how many people are clicking on your listing.
- Share your listing in your local neighborhood page.
- There are tons of neighborhood groups on Facebook, and it’s likely that your neighborhood has one. We encourage you to share your listing in your page so that your neighbors are aware that your home is for sale. They may have friends who are looking to move to the area, and can pass the information along.
- Share your listing in local interest groups.
- In addition to neighborhood pages, there are tons of local interest groups that may be a great place to share your listing. Some of these include Micit Columbia, Trader Bro’s, etc.
Helping us to build the buzz on your home will hopefully allow us to bring more buyers through your home and sell your home faster. We look forward to promoting your listing across multiple different platforms, and getting it sold as quickly as possible!
