Why advertise with Private Property Sellers
Need a fresh approach to your property advertising? Not receiving enquiries from around the world?
With our modern approach, high profile exposure, our marketing reaches far and wide.
All our property listings deserve the best possible exposure and at PPS we aim to achieve this as we continue to lead the way in the most high profile advertising compared to any other marketing company.
The most common reason for a property not attracting interest and achieving a sale are the following:
- Limited exposure.
- Incorrectly priced.
Why advertise privately?
One question I am asked, and sellers sometimes don’t fully realise the benefit of private advertising.
Whilst the estate agent will use many of the websites we use, they will be advertising your property with their fees. With PPS we will advertise your property without any estate agent fees. Given the choice to buy your property via the agent and pay their fee, when you could buy the same property without fees, makes so much more sense…. and don’t forget the fee that the agent adds to your property price, isn’t the fee for the owner, it could just be making your property harder to sell. After all, why would you pay more for the same item, whether it be a house, a car, a pair of shoes or a bottle of wine, when you could buyer it cheaper!
Read what our clients have said about our service Testimonials
It is not enough anymore to just list your property and wait for the enquiries, your property, which has now become a marketing product, needs to be engaging your audience 7 days a week, and most websites don’t offer a proactive marketing service, but just a listing site for your property. Free sites aren’t always going to reach the widest audience or maybe limited by the language, and that’s if they can be found.
The websites we use to advertise your property.
We have selected websites that don’t just focus on the UK buyer. Demand for property isn’t just from the British, as over 50% of our enquiries are from outside the UK, and through our marketing of property and our website we attract buyers from France, across Europe and the rest of the world. We believe this is important for your property advertising.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) For each property listing we create SEO which means your property will appear in google search when key words are used. This means that your advert stands a far higher chance of appearing independently from a google search for buyers with us.
Social Media Platforms With today’s modern use of technology this can seem a bit daunting for some people, so we do that for you. We share regularly through various platforms your property profile and video. If we receive enquiries or interest in your property we will obtain the details from the person interested and contact you.
In today’s world of marketing you can no longer just add your property to websites and wait for the enquiries, you need to be embracing a modern marketing technique and standout from other property adverts and that means including video marketing.
You don’t need to have a video with someone talking about your property for 20 minutes, you need to engage fast, providing key information, and this means having good pictures, key points and within a 2 minute duration, as the first few seconds are the point of engagement.
Research shows that people will watch a video online before they read a page of text.
You’ve made the decision to sell your property, and like anything you try and sell you need to reach as many customers/buyers as possible, but for most people their property is their biggest asset, therefore the best high profile exposure is required. You can’t always achieve this with free sites or just a website page alone.
Video platforms help reach buyers you could be missing, such as youtube and facebook video for your property, as with any product it’s about attracting interest and standing out from the competition. Video Marketing
