Real Estate Marketing Techniques

A Look At The Best Marketing For Realtors

More often than not a prospective client will want to know every detail available about a home that is listed for sale. This is the usual case whether those looking are just browsing or are serious buyers.

Realtors end up spending an unnecessary amount of time with people who have no intentions of making a purchase and not only is that discouraging, it may also occupy you from being able to serve a serious buyer and therefore lose a sale simply by being too busy. Realtors can eliminate a lot of this risk by using a website to provide primary details for them.

It isn’t difficult to display all of your available properties and their corresponding details on an organized, informative web page. In order to get the most traffic to your site as possible, you should implement the use of one way links and original content, among other strategies. Online marketing for realtors this way can put you far and above the competition.

One important aspect of your real estate website should be original content. This content can be in the form of articles or blogs or any other type of content that is informative and relative to your expertise and target market.

The next step to increasing the number of views generated on your website is to add as many links as possible, whether purchased, traded, or included in article content. You will achieve a much higher search engine ranking by using links on your site. This is one of the forgotten secrets of successful online marketing for realtors.

You’ll end up with a website that generates accurate leads to your site if the above steps are followed accordingly. When people are able to view property photographs and specifications without your assistance, you’ll save a great deal of time both before and after an interested person contacts you for more information.

This is because you’ll neither have to introduce your listings to them nor guess what their preferences are since they come to you already having a listing or two in mind for you to work with.

Effective real estate marketing techniques is the foundation of a good real estate marketing system. And the real estate marketing system contains a list of specific actions required to successfully implement a specific real estate marketing techniques.

Here’s an example of a real estate marketing techniques that every agent and his and her uncle uses: “Offer a No Cost Obligation Competitive Marketing Analysis (CMA) to attract consumers.

Once you’ve established a relationship with the prospect you can then segue into your pitch to sell additional, higher-margin products and services that enhance the consumer’s interaction with the low-cost product or service.”

Specifically, you are angling for a “listing agreement”, and if you get it you can then add on “seller” giveaways to make the listing more appealing to buyers and therefore easier to sell (seller agrees to pay discount points, offer home warranty plans, agree to sell-lease backs, etc.)

No, I’m not talking about under pricing it to sell it quickly, or anything else unethical. Instead, I am talking about having open and honest dialogue with your seller to determine what kinds of concessions he or she is willing to make to get their properties sold. It could be a new paint job, a new roof, the installation of new carpet and anything else imaginable.

It’s important to realize that a real estate marketing techniques is different than a tactic. While it is possible to have a tactical real estate marketing system without a sound, well-considered real estate marketing technique, it is rare to be able to develop one that withstands the test of time.

Some real estate marketing techniques are based on market dominance. In this scheme, agents are ranked based on their market share or dominance within their communities.

Still, other real estate marketing techniques are outright aggressive. They beg the questions whether you should grow your business or not, and if so, how fast.

Finally, other real estate marketing techniques are warfare based strategies. Ever hear of Guerilla Marketing? Well, that’s where the term comes from.

Using technique that you are comfortable with, that is more in keeping with your personality is recommended, because when the going gets tough you are so likely to abandon it.

I’m starting to use the term more frequently these days, but only because it’s true; slow and steady wins a lot of races, and when you implement your real estate marketing techniques and strategies know that although the going may be slow initially, while you’ll eventually reap the benefits of your efforts.
