List Price

First and foremost, is your house listed appropriately? This is the biggest culprit when it comes to online listings receiving little to no traffic. A home that is overpriced will drive potential buyers away, and contrary to common belief, listings that are priced too low will also scare buyers as they may have a pre perceived notion that something is wrong with the house. Therefore, getting an accurate, non-biased market value of your home is a huge key to success when selling.

Why is my Online Listing Receiving Little to No Traffic?Poor Photos

In a world of first impressions, and with most real estate first impressions being online, your photos need to be professional. Poor photo quality, blurry images, over edited images, etc. can all drive traffic away from your online listing and result in low traffic and even lower tours. Hiring a real estate photographer who is reputable and can provide you with samples of their work Is key in ensuring that your online listing captures the attention of potential buyers.

Poor Marketing

Where is your online listing actually listed? Is it across multiple platforms? Is it on well-known and high traffic sites? These are all questions that you should ask your realtor® prior to signing a seller’s agreement as you’ll want to make sure that your realtor® is up to date on the latest and greatest in digital marketing and has the knowledge needed to ensure that your listing receives as much traffic as possible to generate buzz and hopefully lead to multiple tours, and ideally, a multi-offer situation.
