How To Prepare For Listing Your Home Online

If you’re looking to sell property online, you’ll want to make sure you’ve gathered all the necessary information before placing your online advert. If you’re placing the listing yourself, you’ll want to know what to include within your property description and sales listing. If you’re enlisting the help of an estate agent, you’ll want to be prepared to provide them with the information they need. Here are a few things you’ll not want to forget when preparing to list your home for sale online. 


The Property Description



The most essential element of your online property listing is the property description. Your property description must stand out from other home sellers and should quickly capture the attention of a potential buyer. Whilst a captivating headline is the most succinct part of your listing, you’ll want to be sure to include several important details in the written description itself. When preparing for your online listing, make sure you note: 




  • Building materials. The construction of your home is important to some buyers. Be sure to know what your home is constructed with to appeal to this subset of buyers.

  • Upgrades and repairs. Buyers want to know what sort of additions, upgrades and repairs you’ve made to your home. Note these upgrades so they can be included in your property description.

  • Appliances and furnishings. Do you have any appliances or furnishings that will be included when selling your home? Make sure you’re prepared to describe those for your listing.

  • Neighbourhood and community information. Good neighbourhood attractions can often be a determining factor for someone buying your home. Be sure you’re familiar with local schools, community offerings and nearby attractions so you can include these in your property description.

Property Photos



There’s an old adage that says ‘a picture’s worth a thousand words.’ And when it comes to your property listing, nothing could be truer. Be sure to prepare property snaps before making your listing. Enlist the help of a professional photographer, if possible. Be sure to get as many wide-angled shots as possible so that the entire property is visible in your photos. 

Preparing for an online listing is simple if you remember to include these items. Do you need expert help in listing your property online? Doorsteps’
