Before the internet, property owners were very limited when it came to advertising their property. It was more about shop windows, flyers and newspapers. However, nowadays, computers, mobile devices and apps offer an array of highly cost effective options that provide an international audience when it comes to either renting or selling your private property.
It’s now become the norm to look online to find a new home. It’s not just estate agents who are offering listings, there are now many other options to find properties online. Many of these sites are very low cost and can provide you with the means to reach a wider audience. For example – here at IAmTheAgent.com we help our private property owners to market through at least 5 other major online property portals.
Here are some of the benefits of listing your property online:
- Reach an international audience. Newspapers are only available to those that read them. Shop windows capture an even smaller audience with just those that physically walk past. This equals limited exposure. Online property advertising can reach anybody who has the use of a laptop, computer, tablet, iPad or a smartphone.
- You can provide further details. Great advertising is all about giving enough information to make an informed decision and you can certainly do that through online property marketing. You have the opportunity to provide enough detail about why your property is a great investment in addition to giving further information and advantages of the local area (you as the property owner will know this first hand!).
- Flexibility. Technology offers the option for personalization, 24 hour property editing, photo management, price adjustments or simple deactivation through a click of a button and easy reactivation when buying an online self letting service package when your property becomes available again.
- Affordability. There’s a big difference in price between what a standard estate agent will charge you and what you would pay if you decided to promote your property yourself via an online estate agency. In fact, thousands of pounds.
Online property advertising really does offer a lot of benefits.
