50 Creative Ideas to Sell Your Property v0.8

We’re into real estate investing. We’re also into keeping it real.

Our goal is to feature products and services we think you’ll find useful. Some of the links in this article may help to financially support this website, but the real-world guidance is all REtipster.

There is one vitally important aspect of the real estate investing business that will always be relevant:

Your ability to find buyers.

Finding buyers is paramount to your success in real estate.

While it’s true, buying a property at the right price is probably the most important part of the equation – you’re never going to realize those gains until you actually get the darn thing sold.

Luckily there are MANY different ways to do this. If you’ve been trying to sell your property and you’re feeling stuck, here are some ideas that may help you generate more interest:

Conventional “Old School” Methods

1. List Your Property with a Real Estate Agent.

2. List Your Property in a Classified Newspaper Ad.

3. Put a “For Sale” sign in the yard (I realize this may sound obvious, but you wouldn’t believe how many properties I’ve bought from people who didn’t even think to take this one simple action).

Free Internet Marketing Ideas

4. Create your own website and list your property for the world to see.

5. Zillow’s For Sale By Owner service, which reaches millions of buyers all over the world.

6. Upload your property information to any one of these free real estate listing websites.

7. Post your property for sale on Craigslist.

8. Post your property for sale on the Facebook Marketplace (or in any local buy/sell groups).

9. Create a squeeze page, start building a Buyers List, and market your properties to them on a consistent basis.

10. Set up an auction on eBay to list and sell your property.

11. Create a selling website REI Conversion or Investor Carrot and show off your listings to the world.

12. Run a Facebook ad campaign and target land buyers in the vicinity of your property.

13. List your property for sale on the MLS via Fizber.

14. Create a professional-looking ad on Vflyer and show people you’re serious about doing business.

15. Advertise your listing website with Pay Per Click mediums like Google Adwords.

16. Create Banner Ads and pay for direct advertising on relevant websites.

17. List your property on a paid site like LandWatch or ForSaleByOwner.com.

Harness the Power of Networking

18. Join some Real Estate Investor forums (such as this or this).

19. Use the BiggerPockets Marketplace.

20. Join Connected Investors and let others know about your property.

21. Talk to some property management companies in your area. These people work with dozens of hungry investors and have tons of local connections.

22. Talk to your title company and/or closing attorney. See if they know of any buyers who are actively looking for new investment properties.

23. Bring coffee & donuts into your local realtor’s office. Tell the entire team that you’ll pay them a referral fee for any buyers they can send your way (that actually result in a sale).

24. Make connections with some of the other sellers in your area. Leverage their networks to find buyers for your properties.

25. Talk to some building inspectors – they often deal with some of the highest volume buyers and sellers in your market.

26. Talk to some appraisers. They will know some of the biggest names in the business and which investors are currently buying properties.

27. “Reverse Bird Dogging.” Call some of the well-known investors in your market. Give them your personal attention, tell them that you have some great opportunities and that you’ve been thinking specifically about them (with regard to the property you’re trying to sell).

28. Search Craigslist for “We Buy Houses” listings. You should be able to find other wholesalers in your area that you can network with (these people have connections with a lot of local buyers – and the serious wholesalers are good people to know).

29. Join a local REIA club and announce your property to all of the investors who attend.

30. Call other Real Estate Agents and ask if they know of any cash buyers.

31. Talk to some Mortgage Brokers and use their various buyer connections in your market.

32. Talk to some Hard Money Lenders and leverage their connections in your area.

33. Call some local home builders and see if they are looking for any rehab opportunities or new construction projects.

34. Visit some real estate auctions (tax sales, foreclosure auctions, etc). These places tend to be saturated with cash buyers. Tell them about your properties for sale. You could have buyers lining up to buy your property if you’re actually offering a good deal.

Creative Marketing Strategies

35. Use an easy video marketing tool like Lumen5 or InVideo to showcase your property for sale.

36. Send out Neighbor Letters to the surrounding property owners.

37. Magnetic signs and window stickers for your car. Wherever you drive, let people know you’ve got some great deals available.

38. Place Bandit Signs in several areas around town.

39. Post your business cards and/or brochures on some local bulletin boards (restaurants, salons, college campuses, schools, etc.).

40. Post some targeted flyers on college campuses. Keep in mind, these will be seen by graduating students, college professors and other landlords who are posting their properties for rent. These boards are seen by several potential buyers who will be passing through on a regular basis.

41. Distribute flyers wherever your buyers congregate (REIAs, RE seminars, Chambers of Commerce, Trade Shows, etc.)

42. Let the world know about your properties through public speaking engagements.

43. Raffle your property (note: this one has all kinds of legal issues to consider, so check with an attorney in your area before doing this).

44. Offer Seller Financing on the property you’re trying to sell (this will open up the door for MANY more buyers).

45. Create a 1-page property prospectus report and send it to some key individuals on your buyers list or hand them out to other investors at your local REIA.

46. Google “We Buy Houses” and then “Your City” to find property buyers in your area.

47. Search “Real Estate Investor” on FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn to find anyone in your area who has this listed as their job title. Contact them and ask if they’re interested in a property like yours.

48. Create a listing with Zillow or Investor Carrot and blast it out to your contacts on FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn (and any other social media outlets you’re a part of).

49. Generate a list of all the properties in your area that have sold for cash over the past 6 – 24 months (like this). From this list, run a direct mail campaign and contact them. Let these people know that you have some great deals on real estate and that you’re looking for investors who want to buy them for cash.

50. Keep an eye out for the “For Rent” signs in your area. Reach out to these owners with a simple letter or phone call. They usually have more than one investment property and might be looking to purchase more.

      Thanks so much for sharing Lynn, I really appreciate your positive feedback!

    2. Cristofer says:

      These are a joke.
      Come on man. Now explain to everyone reading that investors by distressed properties.
      An investor is looking for property that is under priced for that market. Investors don’t ever pay market value for a property so you wont be getting offers anywhere near asking price for these properties.

      Craigslist? lets jump in with both feet and boots.
      Make sure you also let your readers know that by selling their own home they have assumed the legal responsibility for this transaction. Disgruntled buyers who believe they have been mislead will and DO sue. Ignorance is not a legal defense, so be prepared to defend yourself in court.

      1. Seth Williams says:

        Thanks for sharing your thoughts Cristofer – it’s always good to hear other options. 🙂

      Hi sharon. I’m just looking at options to sell some vacant property. If you could help me i would appreciate it. I went online and getting i guess ‘selling agents’ that want to charge me like $500-$700 to list it until it sells and no fees after. I’m kinda looking to sell it on my own and need help.

      Great ideas – thanks for sharing Chris!

  17. Sneha Paul says:

    This huge list is all great information and a good reminder to all of us to keep our eye on the Ball of success for our clients and us the Agents. Great marketing ideas.. Thanks a lot..

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Thanks Sneha!

  18. Search A Home says:

    Creating an own website is such an great idea to sell property fast. Nice tips!

  19. Mike Toste, Realtor® in Cornelius says:

    Thanks Seth. Great ideas! Going after investors if you have a property that could be an attractive buy for them is something most people wouldn’t think of. Chances are, that if an investor isn’t in the market, he/she probably knows others who are. Forums are also a good idea as people will actually look at and read posts as opposed to other platforms where people scroll through without a car.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Thanks for reiterating the forum idea Mike – I totally agree! As with most things, there is more than one way to get a job done.

  20. Joseph Kalavi says:

    Am just reading your points and they appear like they will unlock my marketing strategies.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      That’s great to hear Joseph! Thanks for letting me know!

  21. Real Estate Diva Brenda says:

    Love the ideas! This article would also be great to help or come from contribution with FSBOs. And if all else fails, hire a real estate agent!! We can help.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Thanks for sharing Brenda, and thanks for stopping by! I agree, real estate agents can definitely be a good fit in many scenarios.

  22. Rafi Chowdhury says:

    I came here while searching for writing a business proposal for my client on how to sell their realestate products . I think I landed safely on a good website and I am taking these ideas and going to implement . A big thank you to the author

    1. Seth Williams says:

      That’s awesome Rafi – glad to hear it!

  23. teddy says:

    Thanks for the share Mr.Seth..appriciate it!

    1. Seth Williams says:

      You bet Teddy!

  24. Dan says:

    This is good info for investors but what about a homeowner wanting to sell their home but can’t sell at a wholesale price?

    1. Seth Williams says:

      I think you could still work with several of these options Dan… you’d just have to work with the disadvantage of needing to sell at a higher price (which isn’t impossible to overcome).

  25. April Cook says:

    These are great tips to help you sell your house faster. I especially like tip 30, to ask real estate agents if they know any cash buyers. Does this make a big difference in how fast the process goes? I’ll talk to my realtor and see if she knows of anyone in this situation. I’ll see which of these ideas we can use to get my house sold fast! Thanks!

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Hi April – in most cases, yes, a cash buyer will be able to close much faster than a buyer who requires financing (because it basically eliminates all the approvals and red tape that comes with conventional loans).

      Best of luck in getting your house sold!

  26. Lillian Moore says:

    I like the suggestion to send out neighbor letters to the surrounding property owners. That is a great way to get the word out that you are selling your land. When I went to sell my land, I made sure to tell my neighbors or post of social media and every other platform in order to allow more people to see that my lot was for sale. I ended up way over my original price and with a good buyer that built his family a home there.

  27. Luke Yancey says:

    I’m so happy that you mentioned to send out letters to your neighbors that say you are planning on selling your place. My sister had the worse time trying to sell her place. She put ads online and in the newspaper, talked to real estate agents, and tried other methods. It wasn’t until she sent letters out to her neighbors that she got a response. All in all, don’t give up! You’ll find someone to buy your place one way or another!

    1. Seth Williams says:

      That’s so awesome Luke! Thanks for sharing your sister’s experience. It’s funny… no two properties are exactly alike, sometimes you have to get creative with some deals and try different things in order to get the results you’re looking for.

  28. Jen Pack says:

    My husband and I have a lot of land that we don’t need, so we have decided that we should sell it. We are very busy with work and our family, so I like the idea of selling it in a way that won’t take a lot of time. I like the idea you give of auctioning off the land because we will be able to find people that are wanting to buy real estate quickly. I imagine that it would be a good idea to look for a real estate company to help us do this so that it all goes smoothly. Thanks for the idea!

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Absolutely Jen! Glad you found it helpful!

  29. Braden Bills says:

    I want to sell my home quickly. I didn’t know that encouraging your real estate agent could help! It makes sense that promising referrals could make them want to help. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Seth Williams says:

      You bet Braden! Thanks for checking out the blog post – glad it helped.

  30. John Morris says:

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Hi John – check out this blog post, you might find it helpful given your situation. Good luck!

  31. Jade Brunet says:

    I have a friend who needs to sell her house. It is good to know that the most important thing to do in able to find success with this process is making sure the house is set at the right price. It might be beneficial to involve a realtor to ensure that the job gets done as quickly and efficiently as possible.

  32. Eleanor says:

    Great article, some very helpful tips there. Although, there are other ways you can sell your property, which are definitely different from the usual conventional ways. I found this article about some other creative ways that could help – http://thomashwood.com/blog/5-creative-ways-sell-property/

  33. Jeff Carbine says:

    Tip number four is such an underutilized tool for home sellers. I think baby boomers don’t understand just how easy it really is to make your own website through Wix or WordPress. Making a website that debuts your home will separate you from the other homes for sale.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      I totally agree – it’s WAY easier than most people realize. Thanks for chiming in Jeff!

  34. sell house cash fast southeast texas home buyers says:

    if you want to let your home go for 70% of arv, it doesn’t hurt checking into home buying cash programs.

  35. Jennifer G says:

    Great list of ways to reach potential buyers Seth! If someone does ALL those, they’re very likely to get their house sold. We Buy Houses investors can be a great way to sell your house fast if you are short on time or don’t want to mess with the hassle. Otherwise offering the seller financing option can be a game changer and even more profitable for sellers. If you’re in a position to offer that, be sure to vet your buyer for their ability to make good on the payments. Thank you!

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts Jennifer – and thanks for checking out the blog post!

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Thanks Erika – I’m glad you learned some new ideas from this list!

  39. Braden Bills says:

    I’m trying to come up with a good way to get my home sold. It makes sense that I would want to create a lot of listings! It would be nice to have as much publicity for this as possible. The more people see the listing, the quicker I’ll get it sold!

    1. Seth Williams says:

      That’s right Braden, you’re on the right track!

  40. Allan Foglio says:

    I really like how this article talks about selling your home, but I think a lot of these could be applied to buying new homes! When it comes to buying a new house, networking is key in my opinion. I have friends who have found their dream homes by just asking around!

    1. Seth Williams says:

      That’s a great idea Jay – makes total sense! Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for excellent recommendations. Meanwhile,I would recommend sellers to monitor the work that manage their properties.

Great photographs are increasingly becoming essential in marketing a house.

  60. Barbara Herbert says:

    This list tells you that you need a good agent to sell your property because if you do all this things you will need a lot of patience, time and effort. It is not easy to sell a property unless you are lucky enough that someone approach you and they want to buy your house.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      It’s a good point that all of this stuff definitely does require some time, effort and mental energy. If someone isn’t willing or able to spend those resources, and agent could certainly be a good fit. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Barbara!

    Seth, I can definitely see how internet marketing would be extremely useful when selling your property. My wife and I have been planning on selling our house in order to move to a much more family friendly neighborhood. I think that we should consider finding finding a real estate agent that could help us to sell it exactly according to our desired asking price.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Could be a great move Chris. I wish you all the best on the sale of your house (and the move)!

  63. Afton Jackson says:

    In a few weeks, my brother will be selling his home. He wants to be able to put a down payment on a different home, so he’s looking to get top dollar. I never knew posting flyers can help you reach different audiences around the neighborhood driving interest. I’ll share this info with my brother.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Thanks for checking out the blog post Afton! There are all kinds of creative ways to get a property noticed (as you’ve seen above). Best of luck to your brother on selling his home!

  66. Asad Ali says:

    Thanks for sharing, i understand that the paid methods for instant results is more effective than organic, but sometimes we get tired of choosing what kind of visual ads are more perfect to get ad clicked or receive more leads. but the websites you listed for ad postings for classifieds and lead generation are also cool methods to move with. still looking for something for Adwords and Facebook Campaigns as in these days not getting much leads from image ads :(.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Actually, I’ve found that both Craigslist and Zillow have produced better results for me than most other paid advertising mediums I’ve tried to date. Paying money for something doesn’t necessarily equate to a greater value.

  67. Derek Dewitt says:

    My wife and I are thinking about selling our home and have been looking for tips to get it off the market quickly. I like that you suggest talking to building inspectors because they deal with large volumes of buyers on the market. Having connections is really important to get the word out so we might try talking to a few different real estate agents and contractors. Thanks for the help!

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Thanks for your comment Derek. You’d be surprised at how quickly you can find solutions by simply picking up the phone and or meeting with the influencers in your area. Best of luck with getting your property sold!

    1. Seth Williams says:

  69. Lisa Wales says:

    Awesome article. Thank you, Seth!

    I use virtual staging and 3D visualization. It makes a great first impression, and demonstrate the potential of property to buyers.
    I use Hasten services for my marketing needs – furniture looks super realistic and I love their design.

    P.S. That would be cool if you can share your opinion on the topic in your blog, or just add it to your article “Is Virtual Reality Going to Change the Real Estate Business?”
    I guess that can be useful.

  70. Owner Finance OKC says:

    Thanks for making my search quick and easy

  71. Lisa says:

    Great Post with detailed insight. VR and 360 Virtual Tours play an important role in selling the property as VR has meaningful and impressive immersive experience. It will help you to stand head and shoulders above your competition.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Thanks Lisa! I’m excited to see where VR and 360 tours will go in the coming years.

  72. Steele Honda says:

    I like “old school” methods 🙂 I am not an expert in this stuff, and I am pretty sure I will use your advice to find a good real estate agency. Maybe one day I will dare to try something from your list when I will be selling my old house!

    1. Seth Williams says:

      I wish you all the best! Thanks for reading and considering anyway. 🙂

  73. Michael Robinson says:

    I love how you took the time to mention how important networking is in selling your home.

    Thank You Very Much, very enlightening.

  77. Mark Padolsky says:

    To cut to the chase, selling a rehab home can be very challenging as you are trying to sell a drab of a house, a house that was once tattered and yet you transformed it into something that is undeniably gorgeous and make sure it is marketable and profitable. This is the goal when you want to venture into selling rehab homes as a real estate investor.

  78. Nikki Hudson says:

    waaaw… thanks for your important information you are feeding us with on this.

  79. Jaque Christo says:

    Thank you for the 50 creative ideas to sell your property fast. With how large social media has gotten there are now so many different ways to list your property so it’s seen. Craigslist, KSL, even Facebook to name a few and that’s not even including the list of sites specifically for selling a home. I think having your house up on multiple sites is a great way to get it noticed and sell fast.

  80. Ivy Baker says:

    I have been thinking about talking about selling a home. I liked that you pointed out that you should talk to a mortgage broker. It is good to know that they can help you sell it quickly and for more money.

  81. Bob Willis says:

    I don’t think creating a website is as important for selling your property. Yes, but we can list on various real estate and local sites.

  87. This article is good indeed, very informative, me personally i have a website its called forthomebuyers and i buy houses, this actually helps sellers on how they can sell their houses. Great Job!

  88. I am looking into putting up my land for sale, and I have no idea where to start. These tips are extremely helpful for people in my situation. I will need to make some flyers, and my husband is good with computer stuff, so we will look into making a website of some sort. Thank you so much for your help!

    1. Best of luck to you Tracy! Thanks for reading the article. 🙂

  89. Get rid of all the excess stuff that has accumulated in every nook and cranny. Put it in storage or give it to a friend

    Giving your walls a fresh lick of neutral paint will make your home seem lighter and bigger

    Make any minor repairs necessary – holes in walls, broken door knobs, cracked tiles, torn or threadbare carpets. Many buyers want to move in without making changes, so allow for this

    1. Thanks for the tips Alan! Those all sound like great ideas.

  90. Stacie says:

    Superb blog you have here but I was wanting to know
    if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics
    talked about here? I’d really like to be a part of
    group where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    Thanks a lot!

    1. Hi Stacie – we’re actually looking at starting an online forum in conjunction with this site (so stay tuned on that). In the meantime though, you might want to check out our Facebook group – it’s been pretty active since we launched it! https://www.facebook.com/groups/retipster

  91. I agree internet marketing is definitely gonna help in selling your property fast. Especially when you get professional photos taken of your house, it will definitely attract potential buyers on the internet or social media sites. Great blog by the way and thanks for sharing all of this information.

  92. Great blog!!! I really enjoy reading this blog. Thanks for sharing this informative blog.

    1. You bet – thanks for reading!

  93. Li wen Rui says:

    These are all super helpful!
    I agree that you need to talk to appraisers and do the research. When I was buying land in GA, I emailed Norman Campbell. Best decision of my life! http://normansellsland.com/ He is worth checking out!

  94. James Borst says:

    I like how your recommendation to connect with other sellers in the area to leverage their networks. I’ve seen a lot of signs around our area that say “we buy houses” and stuff like that. I think it would be fun to be able to buy a home, soup it up, and sell it. Once my wife is graduated with her master’s degree, we may consider buying cheaper homes and doing Airbnbs, like you.

    1. Thanks James, I’m glad it resonated with you!

  95. Richard Castro says:

    These ideas are awesome! I’d never even heard of a lot of them! I am totally going to use this!
