  • Get Descriptive: Describe the property “emotionally” so that a buyer can feel the “history” of the property, or how it is to live on the property, etc.
  • Find Your Niche: There are communities or groups of people who are passionate about the unique aspect of the listing. Find them online and get involved with their discussion groups or email them. Use Google searches to find these groups.  For example: Flower Club if your home has a huge garden. 
  • Use the Web Post your listing on all real estate websites you can. Hire a company to create a compelling virtual tour with music and creative camera work.

  • Explain the Price: Because it’s unique, explain everything in detail. Hire an appraiser that is accustomed to working with unique homes so they can be as thorough as possible with specifics, including construction costs, land values, and information that makes the listing unique..
