Selling your real estate property in Burbank is not an easy task. Aside from the documentation, processing and official transfer of titles etc., the first thing you need to do is get your property in front of buyers. For this, you can go the traditional way and/or the online approach. Digital is easy, mostly free and you can do it in the comfort of your own home. The traditional approach on the other hand is very targeted and requires you to step out of your house. Either way, you need to be careful not going overboard spending on listing. Luckily, we’re here to help. Here are seven ways you can list your real estate property for sale without breaking the bank.
The obvious first in the list, for both digital and offline is Craigslist because it’s where sellers go when they want to advertise to thousands of buyers. Traditional offline Craigslist works really well, and its online counterpart is even better. You can upload pictures, give description of your property, contact information and the price you want to sell it. You can even pinpoint location of your property on Google Maps. And the best part is, it’s free. The only drawback is that it does not support video upload.
Zillow works like Craigslist but specifically for real estate sellers and buyers. Zillow collects all listings from other sites like Yahoo etc. too and creates a holistic listing for all types of properties. Considering it’s a dedicated real estate site, you’ll find it much easier to feature your property in terms of uploading photos, videos, maps, and social media sharing options. The only price you have to pay is creating an account. Super, isn’t it?
Real Estate for Sale Apps
Apps are the thing nowadays for youngsters as well as Millenials who are on the go. With a flip of your thumb, click on an app and get your listing done in minutes while sipping coffee at the airport. From Zillow to Realtor, Trulia, Trovit, Redfin and Xome, you can create profiles for your property and get it in front of people on the go looking for a home to purchase. Some of these may charge a fee for agency but the rest are free.
We bet you’ve never thought of selling your property on Facebook. Home of thousands of communities, Facebook groups are wide and varied. You can find a group for any topic under the sun and moon. Real estate is still pretty big a niche so you’ll be sure to find a group that caters to your area, city or county. Just do a quick search in your Facebook app, send request for joining (if it’s a closed group), read the group rules, and you’re all set to list your property for free. Some groups may even feature paid ads to ensure your listing is prominent. You can opt for it if you have the budget.
If you’re not comfortable with the online approach, then let’s head over to the nearest community center. Before you go, you should create a beautiful leaflet with photos of your house, price, contact info and timing for visitors. Connect with the announcement board in-charge, request for for your listing to be put up and be prepared for people to call you. The only downside is, you might get lots of unnecessary calls.
If you’re a church going person then this option is great (this goes for other religious centers as well). You get to list your property and spread the words to the potential buyers directly, and even connect with them during mass or some religious occasion. Your religious head may be of help to you by spreading the words even when you’re not there. Now that’s killing two birds with one stone!
Local Real Estate Agent
And if all else fail, you can always turn to a local real estate agent like Los Angeles Property Management Group who offers you real estate for sale full service: from listing to touring as well as screening of buyers etc.
Now it’s up to you, which way you want to to adopt and how much budget you have.
