PROMOTE WITH SOCIAL MEDIA
Even with a real estate agent working on their behalf, home sellers may want to lend a hand. Jonathan Bane, a real estate agent with Home City in Austin, Texas, suggest sellers list their home on local Facebook buy, sell, and trade groups. “I know of three instances in the last six months where a sale was made on a house from a Facebook group or a local school parent group where someone bought the home based on their announcement,” Bane says. Some of the groups prohibit real estate agents from posting on a client’s behalf.
