Words that bring your property to life.

What is Real Estate Copywriting?

Real estate copywriting is more than clever adjectives and a list of property features.  It should be powerful, compelling and intriguing – the type of writing that seizes prospects and draws them to inspections.

In a digital world, online listings and brochures are an agent’s way of communicating directly to prospects, so each piece of writing needs to be fluid and perfectly crafted.

It also needs to stand out.  Online competition is more intense than ever before, so SEO, visuality and headlines are increasingly important.  Without well-branded copy that speaks to your target market and bypasses rival listings, securing inspections is an uphill battle.

It doesn’t matter whether you need words for your website, text for your listings, or a tagline to carry your company – professional real estate copy is an asset designed to get prospects calling.

Why Hire a Real Estate Copywriter?

The average commission rate for an Australian real estate agent ranges from 2% to 2.84%.  That means you’re looking at $10,000 to $14,200 per sale – significantly more if you sell luxury properties.

Now think about the time it takes to write a property listing.

You spend hours staring blank-eyed at your computer screen, trying fruitlessly to convey the essence of that beautiful family home.  You keep deleting and retyping sentences, right-clicking ‘Synonyms’ and reading over listings from other agencies for inspiration.  You think back to the house tours, the fancy photos your photographer took, and you wonder why you can’t describe it all with words.

Well, we think you shouldn’t have to.  You sell houses, and you’re really good at it.

But it’s not your job to attract leads.  That’s what marketers are for.

So think about it like this:

If you pay a copywriter $150 to create a professional listing, you’re not just saving yourself a few hours – you’re also maximising your chances of bringing in highly qualified leads.

And if one of those leads becomes a buyer?  For just $150, you’ve achieved a $10,000+ sale.  In the marketing world, that’s what we call an exceptional return on investment.

Frequently Asked Real Estate Copywriting Questions

Absolutely!  As an agency, we’re not bound by exclusivity clauses, which means we can collaborate with multiple companies in the same industry at once.

In the event a conflict of interest arises (a situation where, for some reason, we’re unable to deliver our services to one client without compromising another client), we’ll declare it immediately.  We also operate behind a strict Chinese Wall, so no information you share with us will be utilised by or shared with another client.

While we can write copy based off pre-styling property images, we definitely prefer photographs that showcase your property at its best.  It’s much easier to write about a beautifully decorated interior than a series of empty rooms.

Yes, we can!  Although we normally collaborate with real estate and property businesses, we’re happy to help private sellers too.

Please note that, unless you hold a valid ACN, we require all payments upfront.  Our Express services are also not available for for private sellers.
