How to Sell My Property Abroad: The Simple Way to Create Property Floorplans

Published: 04 October 2018

While floor plans are now a given when marketing property in the UK, elsewhere, they are few and far between.  Buyers searching for property from overseas, can rarely just 'pop over' to see a property but, armed with as much information and detail as possible, a potential buyer will be far more likely to short-list a property for a viewing.

As photos are now so important when it comes to online marketing, it is common for vendors enlist the services of a professional photographer.  I would argue, floorplans are fast becoming just as important and in a market where no one else is doing it, it's an easy way to make your property stand out from the crowd.  In addition to this, the property portal Rightmove positively favours listings with floorplans.

Nowadays, there is no need to pay someone to come and do a floor plan for you - all you need is a smartphone or tablet computer and a free-to-use website and you can create your own floorplan easily in around 15minutes.  The two websites we have been recommended are Magic Plan and Locometric:
