Some advices

Premium so that the home has more visibility

When searching Idealista and Fotocasa, for example, you can see that certain homes appear repeatedly at the top of the search. It is because those sellers pay a premium rate so that the sale of the house is more publicized. They also have access to exclusive lists of agents from buyers and some even facilitate contacts with real estate agencies.


Probably the most decisive part in order to put an apartment for sale is in the photographs that are taken of the property. A good lighting, a house clean and collected giving a greater sense of space or a sharp photo and from angles that favor the global vision of the room, they significantly help the home to be more attractive for future buyers.

Take care of the description

When people search for houses, almost all descriptions they start to sound the same. The lack of adjectives will make each property «pretty» and «cozy». Better to stand out from stale adjectives in this type of portals and be more concise, offering important details such as measurements in meters, the number of cabinets, the floor material, the orientation of the windows or terrace or whether the home it is completely renovated.

Making it easier to show the property

Another key to putting an apartment for sale or rent and being successful in a short time is to offer facilities in order to teach it interested parties. It must be considered that if you do not have a lot of time due to family or work matters, it is better to have a real estate agent that I can show it, so do not miss the visit of many search engines for not having availability.
