You’ve collected up all your photographs, noted down all the relevant property information and now you just have to write the description and upload! Sometimes, it’s not always as easy as it sounds, is it? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It can be challenging to write the perfect description that is both informative and engaging, and that sets your listing apart from the rest. To give you a hand with yours, we’re sharing how to write the perfect property description.

Step 1: Organize your notes and all relevant information. Try and get as much information and details as you can such as square footage, special features, garage space, back yard/garden size, etc. Round up every aspect of the home that you think prospective buyers might be interested in.

Step 2: Think about your audience. Is the home in a bustling urban area close to bars, restaurants, shops and nightclubs or is it in the country? Not only is this information valuable as it fully informs potential buyers, it also helps you understand what sort of people are going to want to buy your property (e.g., families, first-time home buyers), allowing you to write a description targeting them. The more local information you can share that is tailored to that audience, the better.

Step 3: Put it down on paper. Start by writing a little introduction on your property and then write up a short description for each room. Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes to help them envision themselves living there. Be careful not to overuse words like beautiful and elegant. Use a couple here, but don’t describe every aspect of the property like that, since doing so doesn’t provide specific information.

Kevin Hall, a property writer from Academized explains, “When writing a property description, you want to build up this impression in your readers head that places them in your property as they read it. Using phrases such as ‘Imagine yourself’ doing this in your kitchen, or ‘Relax with beautiful views from your bedroom’ to really entice the reader into wanting to come and see this for themselves.”
