Marketing a property involves many different mediums although often there is the misconception that marketing is advertising only. This is in fact far from reality - advertising is just one step of what marketing a property involves.
Following is a list of additional marketing activities that can be used to profile your property in the marketplace. These activities differ according to the suitability of your property.
- All Sales Consultants should bring the rest of the sales team through your property so they can help in finding a buyer.
- The Sales Consultant may offer all current buyers a pre-marketing property preview. This allows you to get good feedback on price and saleability from people who have looked at other properties. It may even mean that an offer is made prior to any public advertising.
- The Sales Consultant may inform the neighbours, often by way of a flyer drop or letter, as many people know of others that would like to buy in their area.
- The Sales Consultant will put up a For Sale sign on your property. This is an extremely effective way of marketing your property and generates interest in a property from people who are walking or driving past.
- The Sales Consultant will add a photograph and description of your property into their office window, which can attract motivated buyers.
