The potential for exposure of your listing if you use sites like Facebook and Ebay Classifieds is heightened and usually for free. What could be better than free advertising?

Sell Your House Fast! Flower TX: The possibilities are endless with the new social media sites. Selling a house is no different. You can sell almost anything on these sites, but Facebook seems to have a more conducive environment by which to do so. Craigslist, Ebay Classifieds, and other more local internet free ad sites may also be a great source of networking for buyers.

On Facebook, you can create a separate page just for your house that can contain all sorts of information. The unlimited photo space is a huge advantage as the information and photos you place on the page are free. Another idea is to look for groups on Facebook that focus on home sales or purchase. You can find groups of buyers that may be interested in purchasing your home as an investment. Would you have any objection to someone buying your house to use as an investment as opposed to buying it for personal use as their home? Most sellers don’t really care who buys their home or for what use. They are interested in getting the house sold. This could be a good place into which the house can be marketed. Use privacy common sense when you do this and don’t assume that everyone looking at the house’s Facebook page is of the utmost integrity.

When listing on a local ad site, keep in mind that there are many scamsters out there who will contact you to buy your ‘item’ but are 99.9% likely to be after something other than what you are selling. They may try to find a way to access your bank account, find out where you work, your full name, your social security number, your birthday, and other information that would be inappropriate. Use the sites to put in free ads including pictures, but by all means use the same safety net you use when dealing in these sites every day.

In addition to these sites, follow another sales path as well if you need to sell your house in a hurry. If you sell through an FSBO site, you might be able to share the listing on Facebook, or create a Twitter following. The advantage to social media and ad sites is that the potential for networking is unlimited. Your listing could go ‘viral’ if you present it in an interesting way and with lots and lots of photos or video virtual tours.
