Home sweet home
Even if you haven’t bought or sold a home yourself, chances are that you’ve at least spent time staring at real estate windows, flicking through brochures, walking past sign boards or browsing online. It’s everywhere.
And where there’s a sale, there’s a listing. This is a property’s ‘shop window’ – the best chance to get buyers interested and excited about one of the biggest purchases they’ll ever make. Photos tell some of the story – but a well-written listing will generate more interest and potentially sell quicker.
In a red hot market, you might think that a real estate agent could get a cat to walk across the keyboard and it would still sell. But well-crafted words (just like professional photos) will always work better, regardless of the market. And that’s where this online course can help.

Selling the dream
Writing about properties is more than just how many bathrooms and bedrooms a home has. It’s about painting a picture that will connect emotionally with a potential buyer. It’s also about telling a story about the kind of life that can be possible with the home in question.
It’s about selling a dream. But for once, that dream is real. It’s sitting right there, waiting for a new owner to step across the threshold.
As a real estate writer, you can play a part in bringing these kinds of dreams to life.
