In recent times we have seen economic reports warning not only of another market collapse, while on the other end of the spectrum we see a lot of prosperity throughout the nation. The truth is that not everyone is benefiting from the economic growth. States like California and New Jersey are losing residents by the thousands on a monthly basis. Cities like Chicago have seen consecutive years of population shrinkage. On the other hand the states like Florida and Texas are attracting families in record numbers. And although Texas gets his fair share of immigrants from other countries to many families with conservative values are considering the move given recent developments in not only New York and New Jersey but California and even Seattle.
After getting a very lucrative job opportunity offer in Houston I needed to sell my house fast in San Antonio. With the local real estate market gaining a reputation for being one of the best long-term real estate investment opportunities in America over the last decade it did not take long for me to get a very reasonable offer. However, unlike many people who rely on real estate agents to do the legwork for them I decided to implement more modern techniques I’ve read about on the Internet. I wanted to sell my house in San Antonio as fast as my friend Martin did! Ty friend Martin, used to live in Corpus Christi, Texas and after getting divorced he moved to start a new life in a bigger city. Today is a very successful Concrete Contractor in Dallas, TX. Martin explained to me that after given his house to a local real estate agent to market and getting no results. He decided to grab the bull by its horns, as we say in Texas, and go on a rampage to sell his house as quickly as possible.
He started by shooting over 50 high-resolution pictures with the 16 megapixel camera is LG phone as. He also shot several pending videos and walk-through videos which he later edited with Windows movie maker. He then created a new Google and YouTube accounts where he published both the pictures as a slideshow and the videos of his property. With this in hand he went on to social media and created a dedicated page on Facebook and an independent Twitter, paints to Instagram account. In addition he created a free website with WIX.COM. He says that the entire process took him about one day and after the entire network was put together he started marketing his house. He started with a one dollar a day advertising budget on Facebook and its to Graham. He then turned his attention to free resources and directories such as craigslist, eBay classifieds, and the Flyer, where he posted the link to his FREE WIX website showcasing his property. Martin never had any faith in this process but he was desperate to sells his house. Truth be told, that 72 hours after he started the process he get a cash offer for his property at asking price. I find this story so remarkable that I decided to give it a try and see if I can sell my house in San Antonio just as fast. One thing I wanted to take away from this post is that while this works very well in Texas and in Florida where families with conservative values are welcome, I don’t think it will work as effective in places like New York, New Jersey, California, and even Seattle.
