Have you ever thought of putting up your own real estate listing on the internet? Or even just to complement your regular listing? Imagine if you could put a webpage link on your normal listings. Then, on that webpage, you could show any number of pictures, comments, videos, and so on, of your properties. You could even have audio commentaries associated with the pictures, or with descriptions showcasing particulars of the property. For example, you could have comments such as “The beautiful morning sun shining through the large bay windows in the kitchen just make waking up in the morning a delight” just below a picture of the kitchen in the early morning. The possibilities are endless…
The nice thing about this is that the costs are very cheap to set it all up, especially when you compare it to the cost of listing a property.
You can buy a domain from www.GoDaddy.com for $8.95 for one year (for example it could be your listing’s address to make it memorable – 123MainStreet.com). Then you can go to a service like Blue Host and buy hosting for as little as $6.95 a month.
If you add up your total costs, then you’re looking at a fraction of the listing cost, but now you’ve got more than a glossy handout to give, you’ve got a fully interactive webpage with as many pictures, videos, audio commentaries, etc. as you want. Considering how much it costs and what you get in return, I think it’s a worthwhile investment. Remember, this website is not about introducing people to your property, it’s about closing the sale with people who have already taken the first step. This is the difference between closing the deal and not, or of getting your price!
