In addition to all the valuable responses thusfar, I would write a blog(s) on the area and cover the subject of Luxury Homes and be sure to include that in your writing.  I would then broadcast through FB with a boost advertisement that can be aimed at those in a higher price range.  Social Media give you many opportunities and I would take advantage of all these since that's what they are for!

I would advertise in Atlanta and Charlotte hiking, vacationing, and sporting stores. I would write some posts about the triathalon, retirees bird watching at the State Park  and National Historic Cites. Think educated wealthy buyers who may purchase a second home. What employers have tech jobs paying more than a hundred thousand dollars a year that can afford a second home.

Joan,

You need to do some research as to where the buyers come from (what state, what city) etc.  Then you have somewhere to market.  A

Hi Joan Timmerman!  I'm happy to help you market your home - I've done this before with an agent in FL and it worked to send some leads that agent's way!  And, as Fred Griffin & Caroline Gerardo said, we're not that far away and certainly have the deep pockets here in Charlotte!

Syndication to third party sites like Realtor.com and Z/T plus your own blogging, craigslist, etc should do the trick. With the internet I am not sure much more target marketing is needed to be honest. People will find it.-Kasey

First thing is if anyone is shopping for a home in your area, they will search in your area. You want to make sure you are found. MLS, 3rd party sites. For external marketing, You need to determine where buyers come from that buy in your area and market in newspapers or magazines as well as creating a good Internet presence.

Its a judgment call.

If you are under the impression all outside of your area who have real estate on their mind are unable to access the Internet, you may want to go old school and rely on 'outbound' marketing.

I find the best buyers are the ones knowledgeable of the community.
I find buyers like to move to locations where they know someone.
I find many take great pleasure in influencing the decisions others make.
I find if you ask for help, it will come.
I find rewarding good behavior creates more good behavior.

In that waterfall of words is one message. Have those who live in the community "MARKET" for you. Empower them with a value proposition.

Plan B is to rely on long tail, followed by 'inbound' marketing.

Our MLS covers a lot of area, then factor in syndication and your listing will get marketed well outside of your area. See what syndication is available in your area. if none or very little, consider realbird which has some syndication available.

Do some research into where most of your area buyers come from. Are they retirees ("snowbirds") who come from the northeastern states or the upper midwest?  Are they from major cities in the southeast? You might get some data from your area MLS, the local Chamber of Commerce or even from the U.S. Census. Best of luck!

Many retirees from the DC Metro Area are moving south for more attractive home prices, lower taxes and a lower cost of living. Your higher price range may be considered to be a bargain by some prospects.
