Whenever an individual looks to purchase a property, they look for options online. The availability of virtual information about any real estate makes it easy for potential investors to shortlist and reach out to the sellers and/or brokers. This decision of reaching out, therefore, depends largely on the online real estate listing descriptions and images, which helps them gain an added insight that is not accessible otherwise. Consequently, it is imperative for any property description to fully and adequately describe the property on sale.
If you are looking to put your Dubai homes for sale, here are a few tips that will help you put together a real estate listing description that sells!
- Accurately describe the property
It is crucial to be honest with your descriptions. For example, if the house is barely 900 square feet, describing it as ‘sprawling’ is dishonest. Do not set unrealistic expectations; instead, own up to the property’s flaws and shortcomings and turn them into positives or propose suggestions to fix them.
- Use adjectives wisely
Do not be overtly narrative; buyers can identify hard-sell descriptions. Although, your description is an opportunity to get creative, adding too many adjectives makes the reader assume you are distracting them from reality.
- Highlight novel features
If there is a fireplace in the master bedroom or a stained-glass windowpane in the hallway, specify it in your real estate listing description. It will help potential buyers distinguish your listing from the others when they are browsing. Mention a few rare features in your description to help the right buyers appreciate it.
- Notice punctuations and sentences
However excited you are about your property, ensure that every sentence does not end in an exclamation mark because if everything is marvellous, then nothing is! Having said so, be sure to use punctuation. Long-drawn sentences are hard to follow and information mostly gets lost. Write real estate listing descriptions using complete and coherent sentences with appropriate punctuation.
- Leave out basic information
Information like the number of beds, baths, etc. can be listed elsewhere but your description, which could be available in your email or the landing page. Your description space is for relevant details that will make potential buyers want to see the real estate in the flesh.
- Use great images
Images are a significant part of your description. Today, smartphones can do the job of professional cameras. Open the curtains, allow the natural light to flood the room and get clicking! Make your real estate listing description work in your favour.
