Up your game
The difference between a quick and painless, successful sale and a sale which drags on for months, upsets tenants and is stressful to all parties relies on three things:
While access and price are generally understood by vendors, it’s the exposure or marketing or a property which can, in a competitive market, sort the men from the boys.
In 2015 we have a multitude of options to advertise property. TradeMe and RealEstate.co.nz are your go to websites, but then depending on the type of buyer you are targeting there are countless other ways to supplement your base marketing. As purchases become more sophisticated and tech savvy, so do ways in which you can reach them.
City Sales this week introduces a range of new marketing packages available to our clients. From low level digitally centred packs to multi-platform packages which integrate digital, international, traditional print, ECRM and Direct. Bespoke packages are designed for appropriate properties.
With technology and access at the forefront, we introduce the Virtual Open Home to the marketing mix. Here we allow prospective purchasers to take a walk through your apartment at any time of the day they like, from anywhere they may be, with no complaints from your tenants. Hard to make sense of this? Here’s one we prepared earlier. It’ll cost you $250 and about 45 minutes to allow buyers in Nelson and Shanghai to make themselves at home in your suite from the comfort of their own home.
So when you list your property to be sold, don’t stop at access and price, speak to your agent or our Marketing Manager about the options best suited to your suite, then sit back and relax as we bring the buyers through.
