In today's age of technology, advertisement is as simple as posting an ad on the Internet where it can and will be exposed to millions of people at the click of a mouse.

(there is a free ebook: 101 Tips For Selling Your House,for you to download,that gives you some great ideas,to help you sell your house, from a link at the bottom of this page).

However, the use of high speed Internet is not the only viable means of advertisement of your home.

There are numerous other methods that will attract potential homebuyers.

Some of these methods include cleaning up the property, setting a reasonable asking price, and placing a "for sale" sign in the front yard; running an ad in your local newspaper; and placing an advertisement flyer in your local shopping complex or mall.

The charm of placing a sign in the front yard of your home, advertising it's for sale status is one of the selling points that will draw potential buyers.

It is a simplistic and unassuming method that gives an "as is" view of the home, a view free from any sort of commercialization or distractive frills that could mask the true attributes of the home.

This is also the least expensive method of advertising but can still yield satisfactory results due to the automatic exposure rendered.

One of the most popular methods of advertising your home for sale is running an ad in your local newspaper.

There are numerous websites that exist solely for the purpose of the advertisement of homes for sale by owner but these are seldom very cheap at all.

A newspaper ad is a tried and true method of advertisement and it is guaranteed to be seen by thousands of people. Even those who are not so computer savvy will browse the classified section of the newspaper in hopes of finding a good deal on a nice home.

The newspaper ad should be eye-catching and short. It defeats the purpose of an ad to make it too verbose. Also, the ad should be free of any grammatical errors. It should use words that attract attention and make vivid the selling points of the house.

Placing an advertisement flyer in your local shopping complex or mall is an excellent way to gain a lot of exposure to your home for sale.

Thousands of people pass through the entryways of such establishments on a daily basis, so make your flyer is attention grabbing and exciting to view.

This will create opportunities for your home to be advertised by word of mouth and will in essence create a much larger base of potential customers interested in your home.

Details about the home may be included on the flyer whereas they could not in a newspaper ad. Having more space to work with is a bonus when using this method of advertisement and therefore allows for a more complete description of your home.

Utilizing one of these methods and especially more than one of these will ensure a profitable sale of your home and will afford you the time needed to take care of other pressing matters associated with your move.
