    Here are the easy steps you should follow to make a flyer listing for new real estate:

    1) Start by accessing the available and free Word listing templates offered at Microsoft Office Online.

    2) Browse this collection of templates and choose the best one that is geared toward your purpose with the layout, design, and color scheme you want. Check each template for the available options it has.

    3) Click on the title of that template (it will then appear on its own for a closer inspection), then click “Download” after which you simply agree to their user license agreement. (You might have to install an Active X plug in for Internet Explorer if you don’t already have it but if you have any problems here, the instructions to update or fix the problem pops up.)

    4) Open the free template you downloaded in Word and follow the simple instructions to upload your photos onto the template first, and then format the text around it that describes exactly what you want to sell and how to contact you. You can upload photos with the easy instructions here. Sell your business with the text or keep the family cohesive with an endearing story. Either way, use your creativity.

    5) Manipulate the color scheme, insert your text with the font style and size you want, and make any other applicable changes you see fit.

    6) Proof the document and print it. Suggestions for paper and other advice to make it look great are available.

    Once you have your listing ready to send out to the buyers in waiting, the process of making the next one or more if necessary is that much easier.
