Your website is one of the best tools that you have to attract potential buyers. If your website isn’t bringing buyers to you then it might be time to take a good look at the design of your website and see if you can make it friendly and inviting to buyers that are looking for homes in your area. Here are a few expert Web design tips that you can use to upgrade your website and make sure that it can attract potential home buyers:

Use Multimedia

home buying websiteThese days videos and photos are an absolute must for real estate agents to use. Some agents balk at using video walkthroughs because they don’t want to invest the time in creating them or don’t know how to post them easily online. But a video walkthrough and great photos are the best features that you can add to your website to attract potential buyers. If you have been avoiding creating video walkthroughs you need to reconsider your reluctance and learn how to do them. Video walkthroughs and fantastic photos are really what attract buyers.

Neighbourhood Information

When potential buyers are browsing through your website to find new homes they are also looking for information about where the home is located and what type of neighborhood the home is in. In order to give potential buyers a complete picture of the area where the home is you should be posting links to crime reports in the areas, public transit available nearby, and photos and videos of the neighbourhood as well as the home that is for sale. Local school information is also something that you should post for prospective buyers with children.

Amenities

If a home that is for sale is in an HOA community with great amenities you need to make sure that potential buyers know about the amenities available in that community. If the community has a grocery store, business centre, pool, walking trails or other features include information, photos and videos of the area with the information about the home.

Contact Information

You’d be amazed at how many people don’t have their contact information highlighted on their website. And that’s a killer mistake. Your information should be easy to find so that potential buyers can see a home on your website and immediately text you or call you to find out more about that home. If you don’t want to have all of your contact information listed publicly then make sure that there is a contact button or form on every page of your website so that at any time people can contact you quickly. The more accessible your information is the more potential buyers will reach out to you.

Summer sales are about to kick off and that’s great news for agents that are ready to make some sales. But summer sales season can be a hectic time and if you’re not prepared you may end up losing some sales or not getting the kind of potential buyers that you want to attract because you’re not prepared. Here’s a quick checklist of things that you should do right now to get ready for the busy summer sales season:

Update Everything

If you haven’t updated your website or your social media lately now is the time to do it. Make sure that all your current listings are shown on your website and have great photos. Take one day each week and write out your blog posts and social media posts for the week then schedule them so that you have some posts going up online every day of the week. By scheduling the posts you can take care of all your social media posts for the week in one afternoon which will give you more time to focus on other tasks.

Restock Your Supplies

Make sure that you have plenty of business cards and brochures on hand and in your vehicle. Stock up on thank you notes and other items that you’re going to need a lot of during the summer sales season. And take some time to restock your cleaning kit and other materials that you will need during open houses so that you don’t have to waste time later on going shopping for supplies. It’s a smart idea to keep an inventory list of supplies so that you will know what is running low and what you have lots of.

Update Your Technology

If you plan on upgrading your phone now is the time to do that so there won’t be any glitches that could cause communication problems later on. Get a new camera, new lights, and any other equipment that you will need to take great photos or take video tours of the homes that you’re going to representing. By updating your technology now you will be giving yourself plenty of time to familiarize yourself with how the new equipment works before you need to rely on it during the sales season.

Streamline Your Process

Now is the time to implement new strategies and systems that will streamline the sales process. The more efficient you can make your daily tasks the more time you will be able to spend with buyers and sellers showing houses. So figure out how to streamline your administration work by sending out automated emails, using technology to the best advantage possible, or even consider hiring an assistant to handle some of the days to day tasks during the summer so that you are free to focus on showing homes.

You can even run referral contests and other promotions to bring in new leads.

Guest Blogging

Networking with other agents and home professionals like home designers is a great way to get new leads. Contributing some guest blog posts to popular blogs in your area like travel blogs and dining blogs is an easy and free way to reach new potential buyers that could be looking to move to the area.

Host Seminars

Hosting seminars is a fantastic way to find people that are interested in buying and selling homes in your area. Hold a seminar for first-time buyers to give them the information that they need to buy a home. Or hold a seminar for people that are thinking about selling their home. Offer refreshments and some great information and you’ll be amazed at how many potential new leads you’ll get. You can even hold online seminars by using live streaming on Facebook or Instagram.
