Keep it concise, not complex
Real estate copywriting balances a fine line between being detailed and thorough, but also short and sweet. Prospective buyers truly want to know all about a house, so be sure to highlight the property’s best features, while nixing the fluff. Not only do you want to grab the attention of future buyers, but you also want to highlight selling points to entice readers into action.
Follow this guideline to short and sweet listing copy:
- Include a headline that emotionally targets your buyer demographic
- Highlight the properties best features, in simple words
- Include information to ensure readers can take action
Avoid real estate buzzwords
Be sure to set your real estate marketing content apart from the pack. While “gorgeous”, “stunning”, and “quant” are all wonderful descriptors, they’re often overused to the point where they have no meaning. Instead of using buzzwords, focus on crafting quality, descriptive one-liners that serve a purpose and create meaning to your listings.
Keep your target buyer in mind
When crafting real estate listing descriptions and social content, be sure to keep your target buyer in mind. The more tailored and specific your copy is to the prospective buyer at hand, the most successful it will be.
What exactly does this mean? In short, create copy that speaks directly to the demographic that is likely to buy the home. If you’re selling a one-bedroom apartment, you may want to appeal to young couples and singles in your text. But, if you’re selling a four-bedroom home, you should tailor your copy to appeal to families and highlight features like a large backyard, local parks, and nearby schools.
Highlight buyer’s wants and needs
Lastly, your real estate copy should highlight your prospective buyers’ wants and needs. Again, leaning on your target demographic, be sure to explicitly label those key features your listing offers. Nows the time to boast about your properties and to let them shine.
