How to Sell an Apartment Online: The Importance of Photographs?
The photographs for the advertisement of an apartment for sale must mainly relate to well-lit rooms. A building where a lot of light penetrates will attract the user’s attention and it is above all the first photograph that is decisive. To make the images, choose a time of day when there is a lot of natural light. Today even with just a smartphone it is possible to create excellent photographic images, but if possible use a good camera. Also, always choose a perspective that makes the rooms large and spacious, another very important feature that catches the user’s attention.
If the online portal on which you place the ad for the sale of your apartment allows it, add a nice video as well. Try to show the succession of environments by choosing those that are the best areas of the house. Pay attention once again to the light. Very often, in fact, the videos made with the smartphone can be lacking in terms of brightness.
Among the images of the announcement for the sale of the apartment also insert a floor plan of the property. The user will have the impression that he is dealing with a professional advertisement and this will positively prepare him, prompting him to ask for further information.

What to write in the description in the apartment sales announcements
List the main reasons why buying your apartment is a bargain. Highlight the possible presence of autonomous heating, an anti-theft system, obviously the accessory equipment of a parking space or an automatic gate. If the bathroom of your apartment is equipped with a whirlpool tub or other accessories that improve the well-being of the person, report it without delay. The same applies to any cabling with optical fiber or the presence of a newly renovated electrical system.
If your apartment has undergone a complete renovation of the rooms, carefully list all the works carried out. Also waste some time detailing the materials used, highlighting the most valuable ones. Those who intend to buy an apartment often take into account the expenses necessary for the renovation. Knowing that an apartment has already been renovated increases its value considerably.
The importance of the location area
Selling an apartment is easier if there are essential or particularly useful services nearby. Therefore, insert in your ad the presence of subway stops, a public garden, schools, and supermarkets. Do not forget to point out the possible proximity to public bodies and municipal offices.
Enter the area where the apartment is located. It is understandable that privacy issues can arise, but it is not necessary to enter the address, house number or other private data. Consider the fact that very often users filter the search for a property for sale based on the area they prefer.
