Currently, it is not enough to hang a sign with the name and phone number of the real estate agent on the property and wait for interested consumers to get in touch. Advertisements in major newspapers have also become obsolete. So how do you make your ad stand out from the competition? The answer: on the Internet.
According to research, more than half of the population has access to the Internet at home, and about 95.4 million Brazilians access the world wide web. With the ease created by smartphones and tablets, the trend is for growth in this data. For this reason, an advertisement for property for sale or rent on the Internet usually has excellent results, provided that it has good planning and perfect execution.
