Making Your Property Listings More Attractive

Making a living from flipping properties and selling real estate can and is being done by lots of people all over the world and it can be quite lucrative, but thanks to TV shows like Flip This House and Flipping Vegas, a lot of folks have been misled into thinking that it’s an easy way to make lots of money. That just isn’t true. Sure, it’s a rewarding way to earn a living, and you’ll probably make more than you do at the average desk job, but it isn’t easy. Buying, renovating and marketing homes is hard.

Still, if you’re determined to do it, it can be done, but you’ll probably need to learn a lot of new skills if you want to be successful and one of the most important skills you’ll need is the ability to create attractive property listings. The rest of this post will be concerned with that…

Include the Floor Plan

Selling property is all about finding the right target market and going all out to get them interested. It makes sense then, and it really should be a no-brainer that including the floor plan of your properties will weed out the wrong market and attract the right people; the people who are looking for a house that matches the specs of your property.

Hire a Photographer

Real estate agents know that a picture is worth a thousand words and that’s why many of them employ professional photographers to capture the properties they’re selling in the most positive light. If you’re serious about making a living flipping houses, you need to post high-quality snaps of every inch of your properties online. This will easily attract more viewers and put you ahead of the competition.

Focus on the Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home and, as any real estate agent will tell you, the room that buyers want to see first. So, it makes sense that focusing heavily on your kitchen will draw more interest and make our property look more attractive than the rest. Of course. This only works if you’ve out the effort into creating a comfy, cozy kitchen with all mod-cons, but if you haven’t done that, you probably won’t get very far in the property flipping game anyway!

List the Home’s Upgrades

If you’ve made various upgrades to a property, you’d be foolish not to mention them in the listings. Property buyers feel like they’re getting more value when something, whether it be a new roof or new plumbing, has been recently upgraded and it will get more people through the door.

Big Up the Neighborhood

If you want your listings to stand out from the rest, take the time to talk some about the neighborhood where your property is located. Highlight any attractive features like a pretty local park, funky coffee shop or more importantly the proximity of a great school and excellent transport links, and you’ll convince more buyers to give it a look.
