Single Listing Websites offer a number of advantages for listing agents and their clients. The purpose of a Single Listing Website is to highlight the specific features and amenities of a listing. These listing websites are typically set up as a scrolling landing page, which houses the real estate images, features, amenities, map view, school statistics, and more.
In this post, we dive deeper into the reasons why real estate agents should use a Single Listing Website to market their listing.
Highlight Specific Listing Features
Most third party websites, like Zillow, limit the amount of features you can highlight on your listing. Furthermore, they also limit the word count of the description. Single Listing Websites tend to be more flexible with the amount of information you can add about your property. When you use a Single Listing Website to market your listing, you can select features you want to highlight and even add your own.
Additionally, some Single Listing Websites do not limit your listing description to 250 words like third party listing sites. You can certainly write about your listing in 250 words, however, studies have shown that listings with longer descriptions sell for more. For that reason alone, it’s great to have the flexibility to write a longer listing description when necessary without having to worry about a word limit.
Allow For Easy Social Sharing
Single Listing Websites have their own branded or non-branded website links for social sharing. When you have a unique website link to your listing, you empower your clients to share their home with their circles on social media. It also allows you to easily share your listing via email or Facebook Groups with buyers agents.
A Single Listing Website cuts out all of the distractions that come with third party listing sites. It’s easy for someone looking at a listing on a third party site to click around and eventually move away from your listing. Avoid this unnecessary disadvantage by exclusively sharing your Single Listing Website link.
Build a More Attractive Listing Appointment Portfolio
When you start using Single Listing Websites for your listings, you begin to build a strong listing appointment portfolio. Instead of showing potential clients your previous listings on a third party website, you can simply open the link to your Single Listing Website. Again, this limits distractions. Moreover, using a single landing page for your listing helps emphasize your marketing stack as well as your brand. Sellers will find that you’re a Realtor who takes marketing to the next level. Especially when your Single Listing Website features professional real estate photography.
There are many ways to crush your listing appointments, and showing sellers your Single Listing Website is one.
View Real Time Statistics Reports
Some Single Listing Website platforms allow you to view detailed statistics reports within the portal. While you can see traffic on your third party website, Single Listing Websites take it further with reports including average time on site, image views, top referrers, site visits, and even views by photo.
With reports that are this in depth, you have a better understanding of what is working and what needs tweaking. For example, your views are good but your average time on site is too fast. You may want to consider editing or lengthening your listing descriptions.
Statistics reports that capture more than just listing views help real estate agents better market their listings.
With a Single Listing Website, real estate agents have the flexibility to create a listing description without restrictions on length. They also have a large bank of features to choose from and have the capabilities to add their own. Single Listing Websites have branded and unbranded links, which makes social sharing easy. Additionally, real estate agents using Single Listing Websites can build more attractive listing portfolios. And lastly, the statistics reports dive deep into what matters for agents.
These are just a few of the many reasons real estate agents should use Single Listing Websites to market their listings. Learn more about the Virtuance Marketing Suite here.
