Create an Engaging Home Listing

by Erica Pittman-Gaynor 11/17/2019

An engaging home listing can play a key role in your ability to sell your house. If your listing hits the mark with potential buyers, the likelihood increases that buyers will set up showings to view your residence. And as a result, it may be only a matter of time before you receive multiple offers to purchase your house.

Ultimately, creating an engaging home listing can be simple – here are three tips to help you craft an effective listing for your residence.

1. Provide Accurate Information About Your Home

A home listing often introduces a buyer to a house. If a listing includes accurate information about a residence, a buyer may be inclined to check out a particular house sooner rather than later.

Remember, it is your duty as a home seller to help a buyer make an informed decision about whether to pursue your residence. If you include accurate information about your house's age and condition in your listing, you can make it easy for a homebuyer to determine whether your residence is the right choice based on his or her individual needs.

2. Include High-Resolution Photos of Your Home

An engaging home listing includes lots of relevant information about a home. At the same time, this listing should feature plenty of high-resolution photos that showcase the true size and beauty of each room of your residence.

If possible, take photographs that can help buyers envision what it is like to walk through your house. You may want to clean your home from top to bottom and remove clutter before you take these photos as well.

For those who want extra help with real estate photography, you can always hire a professional photographer. Because if you have a real estate photographer at your side, you can reap the benefits of top-notch photographs that can be incorporated into your home listing.

3. Keep Your Home Listing Simple

There is no need to use big words or complex phrases to try to differentiate your home listing from others. Instead, keep things simple, and homebuyers can decide for themselves whether to move forward with a home showing.

Lastly, if you need help crafting an engaging home listing, you can always reach out to a real estate agent for assistance. This housing market professional can provide expert guidance throughout the home selling journey and ensure you can achieve the optimal results.

A real estate agent will learn about your home and help you put together an informative home listing. He or she also will set up home showings and open house events to promote your residence to prospective buyers. And if you receive an offer to purchase your house, a real estate agent can help you review this proposal and determine the best course of action.

Erica Pittman-Gaynor

I went into Real Estate because I value working with people and helping them achieve their goals and dreams of home ownership in Santa Cruz County. I believe in creating an honest, straightforward, memorable experience for the clients I work with. 

Prior to joining Keller Williams Realty, I was a stay at home mom for 7 years. Before that I taught at Boulder Creek Elementary. My past teaching experience enables me to educate my clients, allowing them to make informed decisions about their real estate needs. 

I work with an excellent team of service providers to handle all the bumps along the transaction road, ensuring as smooth a process as possible. I chose to partner with Keller Williams Realty because of the culture, education, resources and all around professionalism. 

On a personal note I enjoy anything ocean related, boating, biking, swimming, sailing and all outdoor activities. 

My biggest accomplishments in life are my two sons, Kyle and Jeff. Both straight A students, musically inclined and just all around great people. My oldest is in UCSC's Astrophysics program and the youngest continues to thrive at Soquel High. 

Whether in life or in business, my goal is to care about others and enrich the lives of the people I come in contact with, including my family, friends and clients. 

I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business. My mission is to exceed your expectations to the point that when we are done working together I will have done such a good job for you that you will not hesitate to refer me to your friends and family.
