Advertising Your Home Online? Provide A Floor Plan

By: Real Estate Advisor

People today are making home buying decisions with the help of the Internet. With most of home shopping done on the Web, sellers are vying to know what attracts them and how to sell their homes faster online.

If you are a home seller and want to sell your home faster, then you may want to include a floor plan in your marketing information. Home buyers are increasingly looking beyond the home pictures that buyers usually provide, and are keen on knowing more about the kind of home they are buying. This is because, unlike home photos that reveal only parts of a home, a floor plan gives the entire picture. There are several features that a floor plan reveals which a home buyer would like to ascertain before he decides on the house. A home buyer can check out if the home has the features he/she requires, whether it is split bedrooms, or a kitchen with a window, or its convenient location near the dining room.

So whether it is an apartment that goes on the market or a listing that is being placed online, home buyers need one important thing to decide - the home plan. According to one real estate agent, home buyers are so particular about seeing floor plans of the homes on the Internet that many request for the home plan to be faxed to them even at the initial stages of home buying process.

Home plans are popular requests from people who are downsizing too. These prospective home buyers would like to see how exactly their furniture would fit into a house with much smaller space.

By providing a home plan drawing to prospective home buyers, sellers can greatly reduce the time taken for deciding on the home. With the help of a home plan drawing, the home buyer can easily visualize the physical space of the home, especially with floor plans now being available in easy-to-understand three dimensional formats.

A floor plan goes in well with modern marketing tools and techniques. For instance, the Toll Brothers web site allows potential buyers to design their own homes by letting them experiment with the floor plan.

Imagine a prospective home buyer visiting 5 to 25 homes in a weekend. It can't be said for sure that the person would remember each and every feature of the homes he had visited. For such a person, having a home plan in his/her hand would make it much easier to remember and help choose the home he wants. And home sellers who provide a home plan drawing to prospective home buyers have an edge over other home sellers.
