When you list with Creekview Realty, you’ll need to complete an extended description of your property to be posted on Realtor.com.
Realtor.com allows you up to 2500 characters, including spaces.
We suggest that you spend a few minutes really mulling over what it is that you like about your house. What exactly makes it a place where someone would want to live?
Brainstorm your Realtor.com description
- Do you love the way the sunlight pours through the windows in the morning?
- Is your house within walking distance to highly rated schools?
- Have you built an office or done any upgrades?
- Does it have a great view?
- Is your lawn the envy of the neighborhood?
- Does your home have whimsical architectural features that make it stand out?
For starters, you don’t want to use that term. You should also avoid terms such as “anxious to sell“, “distressed” or “rental property” as these tend to actually linger on the market much longer. Using phrases like “move in ready“, “turn-key” or “lovingly maintained” however, might bring in a buyer. Click here for a more detailed explanation of which words sell better (and faster). Even if you do think your home is somewhat plain, you can bet that somewhere, someone out there is ready buy your home. You just have to find them. Writing an interesting description is a good place to start. You can capture the interest of buyers with a few well chosen words and some great photos.
If there was ever a time to brag, now is that time.”
Think about what buyers want. After all, something about the home attracted you. What did you find appealing? Chances are, someone else will find it interesting too.
Always emphasize the most enticing features of your home.
Additionally, when you write, try not to be vague or too general. Instead, give specifics about the features. Mention details such as walk-in closets, double vanities, new carpeting, upgraded appliances, fresh paint or carefully professional landscaping. Don’t just say something like “recently remodeled” and “nice yard.” Here is an example of what we are talking about:
“Charming 2 Story brick home nestled in the upscale Windsor Estates. 3 oversized bedrooms, 2 baths, large game room. High ceilings, open Floor Plan with dual living Areas, beautiful bay windows that overlook a manicured lawn. Gorgeous crown molding, hand scrapped hardwood floors, gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counter-tops.
