Atlanta real estate marketing is growing at an unprecedented rate, but every single day, I meet real estate agents feeling frustrated and overwhelmed because no matter what they do, their listings just won’t sell.
From cautious buyers to unreasonable sellers to increasing costs of real estate marketing, there are a number of factors that continue to plague the Atlanta real estate careers of a number of agents. If you’re one of them, don’t worry as I have 3 bona fide ways you can sell your listings quickly and achieve your sales and revenue targets.
1. Make Your Listings Visible to More Buyers
More than 90 percent of homebuyers begin their home search online. Therefore, to capture their attention and make a listing visible to them, you must publish your listings on all major real estate websites, such as GAMLS.com, FMLS.com, Homes.com, ListHub, Placester, and more. These websites are visible by millions of users every month and can therefore significantly increase your chances of selling a listing quickly.
You may also consider spending some money and publishing your listings as Preferred Listings to get more views and reach more potential buyers.
2. Add Photos and Videos to Make Your Listings Attention-Grabbing
According to the National Association of Realtors, listings that contain property photos and videos get more views than those that don’t. Therefore, add professional-looking photos and videos that highlight unique features of the property you’re trying to sell. This is likely to spark the interest of a potential buyer, compelling them to get in touch with you to get more information. You can then use different techniques to nurture the lead into a customer and turn your listing into sold property.
3. Harness the Power of Networking
The importance of networking to the Georgia real estate career of an agent cannot be overemphasized. An extensive professional network not only helps you get more referrals, but can also make it easier to find potential home buyers and sell a property. Talk to some property management companies in your area or a closing attorney and ask them if they know any buyer who is actively looking to buy a home. Building inspectors, property appraisers, and other real estate agents should also be able to find buyers for your listings too.
Using these three simple yet effective ways, you can make your listings visible to a large number of potential homebuyers and close more real estate deals.
