Best Websites to List Your Real Estate Agency in Nigeria

The most challenging task for a real estate agency is getting clients, in order surmount this task, agencies must do all it takes to put their properties out there for the general public too see. In this post, I’ll be sharing a couple of websites where an agency or real estate agent can post properties to increase visibility. Spreading your properties across various platforms in the Nigerian online community is a very smart move to help you generate leads.

Remember, the goal is to get your listing in front of as many potential buyers as possible, and the buyers who browse on Website A may never think of browsing on Website B (or C, or D, or E). Since we can never know precisely where our next buyer will come from, it may be worth your consideration to look at what each of these options can bring to the table (and since none of these cost a dime, the only thing you stand to lose is your time).

Facebook

  1. Facebook is an incredible means to market your properties,  it’s free and it gives you access to millions of potential clients to sell to.
  2. Facebook is not a native platform for marketing properties but it’s a great place to meet clients if you play your cards right.
  3. Marketing on Facebook starts by setting up a business page. Although many agents use their personal profile, it’s better to create a business page, for two reasons: It’s more professional, and it allows you to market to your followers more efficiently using features not available in your personal profile. Maintaining a facebook business page for real estate agencies involves:
  • Setting up the page with an eye catching cover photo, services,  contacts and properties
  • Sharing tips and advice related to real estate and property development.
  • Receiving and responding to comments and messages
  • Updating images of current events and properties.
  • Sharing videos and pictures of you and your team.
  • Sharing videos of property tours.
  • Using Facebook ads to target a wider audience.

Doing all these would guarantee your agency good leads.  Also don’t forget to focus on the local community

Businesslist

Businesslist is not a property listing platform but a business listing platform, the reason for including this website is it’s popularity. Obtain new customers and generate more traffic. Improve social media shares. Get reviews and grow business reputation online. Your company profile can include contacts and description, products, photo gallery and your business location on the map.

Businesslist.com is a directory where you can find most Nigerian businesses, listing your real estate agency in businesslist increases the credibility of your business and also improves on your brand awareness. Businesslist is ideal because of its huge database,  it is basically the one of the largest business directory in Nigeria with over 155000 businesses listed on it,  it is also a good place to find potential customers and email lists and the best part it’s free to use except you want to opt for their premium package.
