If you’ve kept up with the Jacksonville real estate market lately, you know that homes are selling fast. However, that’s not always the case.
In general, many homes stay on the on the local market for about 25 days, and then it takes another 30-45 days after the offer is accepted for the listing to officially be “sold.” Unfortunately, the process is even longer for some properties, especially if they don’t have great listings. They can sit on the market for months, and sometimes not sell at all!
The real estate listing is a vital piece in marketing your property and selling it successfully. Even while working with a realtor, it’s important that Jacksonville homeowners put substantial effort into creating a high-quality listing.
Good SEO Practices are Critical
Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is a crucial component to getting noticed online. By performing keyword research and incorporating these keywords into your listing, it’s more likely to pop up when a potential buyer is searching online.
Imagine that you are using a search engine to look for properties in your area and include these search phrases in your own listing. One example would be: “Beautiful Homes for Sale in Jacksonville.”
Use High-Quality Photos
Most buyers filter through dozens of online listings before choosing a few properties to visit. So, what will make your Jacksonville property stand out from the rest? High-quality photos.
The first thing people will look at on your Jacksonville property listing is the photo gallery. And if the photos are low quality, too small, or have poor lighting, there’s a good chance your property won’t make the shortlist. Use a great camera or hire someone to take professional photos of your place. Include every room, common spaces, front and back yards, and features like decks or pools.
Price Your Property Carefully
Your home should be priced similarly to ones like it in the area. Although you may think your home is worth millions, pricing too highly can keep your home sitting on the market for months, or longer. Talk to your realtor and listen to their advice.
Write an Excellent Description
The listing description for your property should be well written, detailed, and targeted. This is where you should incorporate those SEO keywords into the description so that your listing reaches as many potential buyers as possible.
Share the Listing on Social Media
Most people these days are on some sort of social media platform, and probably more than one. It’s through social media that people interact with business, catch up with friends, and shop – even for homes. Share your listing on social media and ask your friends to share it, too. You might reach your future buyer!
