MLS listings are a good resource when you’re looking to sell your home. MLS stands for Multiple Listing Service and to put it simply, it’s a way for real estate brokers and agents to share information about their listings with other brokers and agents. With MLS listings, home buyers can use a variety of filters to narrow down searches to just those homes that have what they are looking for. This saves potential home buyers a lot of time.
When adding your home to the MLS listings, it’s important to include accurate and complete information. The more detailed you are and the more you answer potential home buyers questions, the better chance you have of them wanting to take a look at your house. Here’s a few tips on what to include in your MLS listings. If you have questions, don’t worry…I’ve got you covered. Together, we can put together a listing that will get your home noticed. Here’s some of what we’ll highlight:
- Details matter. Make sure you provide as much information as you can in all areas. For example, always include how many bedrooms, bathrooms and overall square footage are in the house.
- Community Pride. Provide as much information as you can about the community your home is in. Is it near a school? How about shopping? Any unique features that would generate attention from a specific set of home buyers?
- Lot location. Provide specific cross streets, a zip code, as well as if the house is located near shopping, medical, etc.
- Photos tell a story. You want the story of your home to shine. Taking attractive pictures of key rooms like the kitchen, bedrooms and living room will help generate lots of interest. The more photos you have the better. Many potential home buyers assume if there aren’t pictures there is something the seller doesn’t want you to see until you get to the home.
