When anyone, anywhere can now get on the Internet at their convenience and pore through homes for sale in their area just as easily as a real estate agent may search the MLS, today’s savvy home seller is reaching out to buyers themselves, foregoing Realtors’ services in trade for a free website designed on their own using a simple website builder.
Website building doesn’t take much at all in the way of skill or dollars. For surprisingly little cost and time, you can build a sharp and attention-grabbing website that attracts the interest of genuine potential home buyers who are online right now looking for a new home just like yours.
You don’t have to hire anyone to build a website for you any more than you have to hire a real estate agent in order to sell your home. Doing it yourself is as simple as getting a free website and using the simple website builder that comes with it.
With these basic tools, website building is as easy as taking a few crisp and colorful digital photographs of your home and placing them next to some clear and inviting copy describing what they see in the photos. Then cap it all off, of course, with your contact information. That’s all it takes and you can even do it all on a single web page. Make a multi-page website with info about the neighborhood and surrounding area, maybe add in a Google map with directions, and you’ve just gone that extra mile to bring those home buyers knocking at your door.
With the current state of the economy, it’s a home buyer’s market out there right now, there’s no mistaking it. And to get those buyers interested in your home at a price that’s fair and reasonable to you, a personable website that highlights your home the way you want buyers to see it could be just the edge you need over the masses of competition. Think about it – no one can sell your home with as much passion as you can. So if you want to make that sale, and manage to save yourself and your potential buyers on Realtors’ commissions, a simple DIY website is one way many home sellers today are finding to do it.
