There is one vitally important aspect of real estate investing that is never going to go away: your ability to find buyers. Finding buyers is paramount to your success in real estate. It’s true, buying a property at the right price is probably the most important part of the equation – but you’re never going to realize those gains until you actually get the darn thing sold.

Today, more than 95% of house hunters start their property search online. And here at Ready steady sell, we’re helping thousands of vendors to sell their properties online affordably and efficiently, with low fees and expert marketing on the web’s biggest property listing sites.

When selling a home, as with most anything else, the more “eyeballs” you can get on the product, the better your odds of making a deal. Therefore, advertising your home on the internet is a no-brainer. Actually selling your house online, however, takes some smart planning, some shrewd decision-making, and some time-tested strategizing to draw prospective buyers to your home.

The Internet Has Changed The Way We Sell Property

The internet is now, by far, the most popular way to sell property. Nearly all estate agents advertise on one of these “property portals” and this is the main way home buyers search for property and how estate agents sell houses.

Would you accept an offer from a buyer whose own property is not on the market? By all means, get an idea of what you’d like to buy, ensuring your moving plans are viable, but before you start making offers, you really need to be sold subject to contract. Estate agents rarely recommend their clients accept an offer from a buyer with an incomplete chain. A rare exception is where a homeowner with a highly saleable property – perhaps one in the catchment of a popular school – is selling to buy in the same area. In this case the seller can afford to sit tight and will probably find an estate agent very keen to offer good terms to get their property on their books.
