Use Social Media to Help Sell Your HouseThe selling of a house is no different than selling or giving away other smaller items. Use your lists of social media friends and followers to draw attention to your house for sale.

We Buy Houses – New Orleans: How many times have you or a friend used Facebook to tell all on your list that you have a used, but still in great shape, electronic device that you’re willing to sell? Tweeting a picture of that computer desk that you no longer need seems like a natural thing to do. Surely someone you know will be interested and will come over and take it off your hands.

Why not use all those devices and massive lists of friends and followers to let people know you will be selling your house?

  • Get the word out through any means necessary.
  • It’s also a great way to advertise for free.
  • You have exponential power when you place your house for sale on Facebook complete with pictures.
  • Take a video with a complete tour of the house, the yard, and even the neighborhood if you think that’s a good thing to tout.

Twitter is another avenue that can include links to your YouTube video tour of the property. You can also make nice photo albums and link your tweets to those. It’s not a bad idea to create a webpage if you have the resources to do so, to make a webpage that you can link to that contains all of the pertinent information.

Email everyone on your list with a nice description complete with photos and a video. It is sometimes quite effective to offer your friends a finder’s fee if they lead someone to buy your home. Given the enticement of a quick $50 or $100 dollars or more, they might just think of somebody that is looking for a house.

Another option is to use free ad sites in your area. A home ad for a FSBO house placed on Craigslist or Ebay Classifieds will not only be shown to those locally, but can be easily accessed by those living in other parts of the country that perhaps wish to move to where your house is located, or are investors that buy homes to rent out or re-sell all over the country. Either way, you will be placing your house for sale before multitudes of people in several different avenues of communication.

Perhaps the best part of using social media and electronic free ads is that the ads are absolutely free of charge. Integrate these with some traditional means of listing and you could have your house sold in reasonable time.
