Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) September 15, 2012
Selling Hollywood real estate isn’t easy, and a bad marketing strategy can make it next to impossible. After all, even the most attractive and perfectly priced home won’t sell if nobody knows that it exists! Because of this, effective marketing is essentially the key to quickly selling a home. But marketing a home in today’s competitive environment can be difficult. As a starting point, homeowners should make sure to avoid these 5 marketing mistakes.
1) Going it Alone
One of the biggest marketing mistakes a homeowner can make is to go it alone. First-time sellers especially need to seek professional assistance. A good real estate agent like the ones at Red Blue Realty have the connections, tools, and experience needed to market any of the Hollywood homes for sale.
After marketing and selling several properties every year, it makes sense that an agent would be an invaluable marketing asset -- as the old saying goes, “practice makes perfect”.
2) No Web Presence
Nowadays, a web presence is an absolute necessity when marketing a home. When selecting an agent, homeowners should make sure that they utilize all the available tools and technology -- Search engine optimization, social networking, email newsletters, and so on.
3) Bad Description
The home’s description should entice prospective buyers to learn more. It’s especially important that the language and tone of the description are appropriate for the home’s intended demographic. When it comes to Hollywood homes for sale, buyers have high expectations, so the description must meet these expectations.
One way to go about this is by specifying what exactly makes the home unique and desirable. And while it’s important to be honest, the language and tone of the description must stay positive, or it may deter potential buyers. A good methodology to have is, "just as one would describe a flawless diamond, so should a house be described".
4) Subpar Photography
Assuming that the buyer makes it past the home description, there is still the issue of subpar photography. Just one unflattering image can cause a prospective buyer to cross that home of their list. Homeowners must ensure that the photography of their home puts it in the best light possible. A professional photographer can go a long way in making Hollywood real estate marketable.
The ultimate goal is to provide as many high-resolution, bright and clear images to the buyer as possible. Red Blue Realty works with numerous professional photographers to ensure only the highest quality images are presented.
5) No Plan
Putting up a sign and calling it a day simply won’t cut it anymore. Besides going it alone, one of the biggest problems that many sellers struggle with is not having a clear marketing plan. A home with no plan is likely to linger on the market for longer, and research shows that the longer a home sits on the market, the more likely its listing and sales price will decrease.
