Effective Ways to Market Your Property Listing

How to make the most by selling your property to a first time home buyer? The simple way is to focus on the net proceeds and negotiate your way to maximize that. However, this strategy provides you with a limited scope. 

The potential often lies in marketing the property over the web using multiple digital channels and strategies. Skilled real estate professionals understand this and employ these techniques to pump up the property value and their share of commission as well. 

In this post, we are going to look at 9 ways to market your property listing to get you a higher net proceeds. 

Include Details in the MLS Listing

Listings are one of the most important parts of MLS, because they provide the details of the property to prospective buyers. Listings can be made with property details about various aspects including location, photos, amenities, and price.

Listings are also sometimes called advertisements or advertisements for sale. A listing provides information about properties that are for sale through a real estate agent or broker. There are several types of listings including active listings, expired listings, and pending listings based on their status of being under contract or not under contract.

Content Marketing for Listings

Content marketing is a marketing technique that involves creating and distributing relevant and valuable content to attract, acquire, and engage a clearly defined audience - in other words, to move them through the marketing funnel.

If you are a property owner and you are not actively participating in your market, you are missing out on an important opportunity for your business.

Content marketing is the best way to get in front of your potential customers and to find new ones.

It's no secret that people use search engines to find information about specific topics, so it is vital that property owners learn how to optimize their content for these platforms.

Optimize Keywords for Listings 

Real estate listing optimization is not only about the keywords you include in your listing. Real estate listing optimization should also be considered from a user experience perspective because it is designed to help potential buyers find their next home faster and easier.

While writing a real estate listing, make sure to include keywords that are relevant and local to potential buyers. It is important not to over-optimize because this can lead to having search engine penalties and listings that rank lower on SERPs.

Custom Landing Pages for Listing

A landing page is a web page that appears when someone clicks on a link in an email, text message, or social media post. They are used to advertise opportunities or to persuade people to take action.

The ultimate goal of creating custom landing pages for property listings is increasing the conversion rates of the visitors who clicked on the link and landed on your page. This way you will get more people interested in your listings.

Custom landing pages are usually designed with branding in mind so they can convert visitors into leads and eventually customers. So you should always focus on branding rather than just designing something pretty because it will only work out in the long term if it’s both pretty and well-branded.

Use High quality picture to market listings

Listing pictures are a vital part of the online marketing for property listings. A high-quality listing picture can help to sell your property faster than other listings without high-quality pictures.

Listing pictures are the biggest factor when it comes to getting property listings seen. A listing picture is an image that’s intended to represent a product or service.

Below are some tips on how to take quality listing pictures for property listings.

  • For the best viewing experience, take your photo in daylight.
  • Position your camera so that you can see the entire room in the shot.
  • Get in close so you can see details like colors or patterns that might not be visible from farther away.
  • Avoid using flash photography which makes photos look washed out and fake when compared with natural light sources.
  • Take photos of faces straight on rather than at an angle, because faces take up much more space in a photo than any other part.

Feature important property listing on home page

A property listing is a page on a real estate website that features the details of an individual property for sale. The page includes details on the property, such as how much it costs, when it will be available, and any extra features.

The best way to promote your property is to make sure it has a dedicated home-page feature listing. Not only does this make it easier for people who are looking for properties in your area to find your listing, but it also helps ensure your listing will rank higher in search results on Google and other sites.

Video Marketing for Listings

There are many benefits of video marketing. One of the most important reasons why it is preferred is because it allows people to see the property in detail without actually being there. It not only serves as an excellent marketing tool, but it also helps potential buyers set up an idea about the property before deciding to visit it.

Social media is a great way to market your property listings, as it offers a very personal and interactive experience. On social media, you can talk to potential clients and answer any questions they might have. If you don't want to do the marketing yourself, help from an agency or outside company can be obtained and this will generate more exposure and lead generation opportunities for your property listings.

There are many platforms that offer social media marketing services such as Facebook Ads, Twitter Ads and LinkedIn Ads. These platforms allow you to target your audience based on age, location and interests, making it easier for you to promote your listings to the people who are most likely to buy them.

Google ads for Property Listings

There are three main reasons why Google Ads should be used to market property listings. First, there is a huge chance of exposure. Google Ads are seen by millions of people across the world, so it is bound to attract potential clients. Second, there are many different options when it comes to the ads themselves, which means that you can personalise them according to what you think will work best for your business. The third reason is that they are cost-effective and easy to use.

Remote Online Notarization and eClosing in Florida


Remote online notarization has been lurking in the real estate and title industry for quite some time now. But not anymore! The pandemic has forced title agents and attorneys to impliment remote online notarization to make the closing process safer while boosting the client experience as an added advantage. 

Florida, like many other states, has legalized eClosing and remote online notarization to keep the real estate businesses afloat by giving a safe option for clients to close. 

So what are the laws that govern eClosing and RON in Florida? What are the advantages and how do you become an online notary in the state? This is what we are going to discuss. 

What is Remote Online Notarization?

Remote online notarization (RON) is the process of notarizing documents electronically. Using RON, the buyers, sellers, their respective agents, attorney, and other parties sitting at different physical locations can come together to express consent and legally transfer the ownership of the property. 

The attorney applies the notary seal that marks the completion of the transaction. 

With the advent of eClosings, RON is being legalized across the US and Florida is also one of them.

Remote Online Notarization in Florida 

For eClosing and RON to be legal, the first thing that should be legalized is electronic signatures. A 100% virtual closing is impossible unless parties are allowed to electronically sign the legal documents.  

The legality of electronic signatures depends on the state and Florida has legalized all forms of Electronic Signatures. Like many states, Florida has also passed the ESIGN and UETA acts that make electronic signatures valid in the state. 

Let’s look further into UETA and ESIGN. 

Both UETA and ESIGN demand a total of 4 requirements for technology vendors and title companies for the notarized documents to be legal in Florida. These are:

  • An intent to sign the documents electronically.
  • Mutual consent to do business electronically should be expressed by the parties 
  • An option to opt out of the process. 
  • Clear signature association where signed documents should be sent to every party with IP address, the identity of the signing party, date, etc. for the signature association. 
  • Record retention and retrieval, as electronically signed documents, can only be valid if reproduced when required. 

Requirements for Remote Online Notary in Florida

A stack of tools and procedures is required for remote online notarization in Florida. These are:

  • Hardware such as the desktop, video conferencing software, access to electronic signature apps to the parties to conduct the process. 
  • Get the consent of the parties before the process begins. Explain the parties about the documents they are singing.  
  • Set up session recording
  • Verify user’s identity and credentials
  • Store the digital documents in PDF and AV formats

How to Become an Online Notary in Florida?

There are multiple legal aspects to eClosing and RON. In Florida, Statute sections 117.201 to 117.305 allow notaries across counties in Florida to perform RON on the condition that they have undergone a training program. 

The sections also state some requirements to legally conduct online notarization in Florida. These are:

  • The individual must be an active notary public. 
  • Should register with a third-party vendor to provide technical support required to become an online notary. This should be done prior to registering to become an online notary.
  • Should complete a 2-hour course on remote online notarization and receive a certification for registration
  • Pay the registration fee of $10 for the state of Florida. 
  • Obtain a notary bond of $25,000. 

Advantages of Remote Online Notarization

There are many advantages of remote online notarization. These are:

eClosing and RON is Safe. One cannot simply change or manipulate the details including the notary seal or signatures of a digital document unlike a physical one. In the current times, RON’s ability to provide social distancing during the closing process also adds to its 

Hassle-free experience. RON saves the hassle for buyers and sellers to travel or mail physical copies of documents. This adds to their positive experience. 

Saves money. RON saves cost during title search and redoing physical documents and the paperwork needed in general. It also saves costs for the clients, they otherwise incur in mailing the documents. 

If you are a registered notary in Florida and thinking about remote notarization, this may be the right time to go for the training program and become an online notary in Florida.

What is the average closing cost in Florida?

On average, the closing cost in Florida is around 2% of the total sale price of the property. That means a $300,000 property will cost around $5500-$6000 in closing costs. So what are the numerous closing costs in Florida?

Following are the closing costs paid by the seller in Florida. 

Commission for the agent. Commission for the agent is around 6% of the total value of the property. This is the most expensive closing cost component shared between both parties. Hence, the seller pays around 2.5% of the total commission.

Sunny Florida

I just heard the weather forecast for the majority of the country.  Are you freezing, slipping on the ice, unable to get out of your home?  Why not say NOW is the time to consider Florida.

Our days have been warm and sunny, and our nights are balmy, the palm trees are swaying.  SEASON is here!!!  Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach is alive with an abundance of restaurants and has a festival every weekend, Boca Raton has outdoor music venues going all the time, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth are jumping and Palm Beach is exciting.

The best is OUR BEACHES-- the water is unseasonably warm and the beach is clean-- just perfect!
