In today’s real estate market, it can be difficult to get your house noticed. For many buyers, price isn’t the only, or even the main, factor in the decision making process. If you are planning on selling your house on your own, then you need to be even more aware of what buyers are looking for and present it in the correct manner.

Real estate flyers have long since been a staple in helping to sell houses. They are meant to showcase the very best of the home and appeal to a wide range of potential buyers. If you’re ready to create your own real estate flyer, then you’ll want to check out these tips on how to create a killer flyer that gets noticed, and helps to sell your house.

Make Sure It’s Professional

When creating your own real estate flyer, you need to keep things professional. What this means is that piecing together a few pictures and a word file on your home computer just isn’t going to cut it. Instead, you can make use of the Adobe Spark free real estate flyer templates. These templates have been pre-made to deliver high quality results that get your house noticed. This tool can also make postcard sized “flyers”, which are perfect for popping in mail boxes.

The tool allows you to customize the look by picking a theme that you like. You then need to add a variety of images that showcase your home to its fullest, and then add the text. Your finished results can be downloaded so you can share the content digitally or print it.

What the Flyer Should Include

There are a few tips to keep in mind as to what should be included on the flyer. These are things that potential buyers will be searching for, so you need to make the information visible. You’ll want to start your flyer off with a headline that really grabs their attention and then follow it up with a sub-heading. A great example is something such as:

“Just Listed” “Stunning Traditional Home in Family-Friendly Neighborhood”.

Other pieces of information you’ll need to include are the price you are asking, the address, and then the property description. Property descriptions should be kept relatively short, aim for 250 words or less. They should be descriptive without being over the top. Key words to use include “elegant”, “magnificent”, “stylish”, “modern”, and “comfortable”.

Steer clear of using all caps, as this isn’t what grabs a buyer’s attention. It’s also important to make sure your description is well-written and without any spelling mistakes. If you’re finding it hard to fit everything in, just use bullet points. Bullet points allow the reader to quickly scan through the content and decide if the property is worth checking out.

The final things that will need to appear on your flyer are the photos. This is where you want to be really picky. The photos should be high quality, be taken from a variety of angles, be lit well, and show off the best your house has to offer.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to create a real estate flyer that hits the mark and provides you with a number of potential buyers.
