Good copy writing
In order to boost your credibility as a property owner it is essential that you post ad which is not only organized in terms of content but also precise in terms of what is being offered in it. Try to be as detailed as possible as this will reduce the prospects question or queries.
Precise ads always draw attentions of the consumers. So, in your advertisement don’t forget to mention various quantitative parameters such as:
“Picture is worth the thousand words”. Nothing more can be said on the importance of images. While posting the advertisement provide tenants with the actual pictures of the unit and not of a sample unit.
Show them how your property’s bathroom, bedroom, living area etc. look like and how the view looks from the balcony. Real pictures will help tenants in determining if they can call your unit home or not. Pictures of sample unit can be very misleading.
