Using technology to sell your house
With low interest rates and renewed confidence in the Australian property market, conditions are favourable for those selling a house.
As more people look to break into the real estate market it is vital sellers leverage their properties on different platforms to maximise the chances of finding a new owner.
Technology is revolutionising the way the property market is managed and marketed, with applications for smartphones and tablets allowing people to peruse properties in a mobile capacity.
Having access to real estate sites in the palm of your hand can help buyers get a foot in the door first, eradicating more traditional means of house hunting.
"It's been fantastic. When I was looking for my first place about ten years ago I remember having to get up early on a Saturday morning and get the paper, circle the ad and then race out to see the places, but by that time half of the open for inspections were already over," house hunter Kate Still told News Limited.
If you're selling a property, it is definitely worthwhile choosing an agent that has a significant online presence to cover all bases and widen the exposure of your home.
You can also capitalise on social media sites by adding links on your profile page to your property listing - tapping into your own friend, family and professional networks.
