Selling a house via social media in this day and age is a necessity to meet the client’s need. On the flip side, the goal is to make the client your “Facebook friend” so that he or she can purchase the house or the property. This article aims to inform how social media is a great tool in selling your property.

  1. Facebook page- Facebook page run professionally or as a personal blog reaches clients “online and offline” especially those interested in buying a house in different locations. The potential clients who like the page get regular updates on what the house has to offer in pictorials. Additionally, the page has the contact details of the owner of the house or the real estate agent. The interactivity aspect and the “share” option reach clients even those who did not see the post in real-time.
  2. YouTube- YouTube attracts viewers because most of the videos can be watched on the go, have great visual and audio components and the best videos on real estate business are recommended for downloads. The first step in selling your house is giving the viewer a video tour around the property. Video tours visualize what an ideal home would look like. In the same vein, videos with a huge number of views e.g. 1000 views start showing highly in Google searches. This is referred to as Search Engine Optimization (S.E.O.). The real estate agents can promote your YouTube account with an ad so that you reach customers quickly and sell your house eventually.
  3. Twitter- Twitter enables individuals to reach influencers in the realty world. Basically, the searches that trend and in our case the home being sold have huge traffic. Online events and exhibitions that “trend” about real estate marketing connects buyers and sellers in need of a home, a rental or an apartment.
  4. Website- A website offers information about sales, prices and location of the property. Furthermore, websites are customized to meet the buyer’s needs. A site would have the contact details of the seller’s property and any other property on sale. Hosting the website allows you to interact with the customer directly and offer feedback effectively.

 The importance of social media in the real estate industry cannot be underestimated. Selling houses effectively means you value all clients and attend to their individual and common needs. Additionally, value their feedback and share as much as you can. Indeed social media is a great resource tool for those selling  houses and buying property.
