Whether a person would like to sell a property or find tenants, they will need to make the property attractive for people. Making a property attractive is far more than improving the property’s appearance, however. Sellers need to know how to market their properties and present the properties in their best lights. One of the most effective ways that a seller can market their property is by developing a unique selling point.
Defining a Unique Selling Point
A unique selling point is a definitive part of a property that separates the property from other properties that are available on the market. The unique selling point shows what the property has to offer that other comparable properties cannot provide. It emphasizes the strengths of a property. Unique selling points are not vague but rather focus on specific aspects that a property has to offer. These points can include financing or renting options, amenities, and various other highlights that a property has to offer.
Determining a Unique Selling Point
To provide a unique selling point for a property, a seller needs first to determine what allows their property to stand out or how their property can help make buyers’ lives simpler. Factors like location or convenience are great unique selling points, for example. A seller also needs to determine their main objective and the audiences to which they are marketing their property. A seller who is selling or trying to rent a home to families, for example, may want to emphasize that the property is close to a school zone or that the property has a large yard in a quiet neighborhood.
When marketing a property, a seller needs to be truthful in their statements about the property. It is okay to accentuate the characteristics of a property to highlight certain features or get buyers more excited about the property. Still, it isn’t okay to make false statements that will attract buyers to the property that may be wrong for their needs. The marketing efforts of a seller need to present the property well for potential buyers to take interest and want the property.
