Going Beyond the Usual Property Marketing

Reblogger Karen Otto
Home Stager with Home Star Staging

This is a great opportunity for Realtors to get some exposure in a national publication! 

Home Stagers this is also a great opportunity to share this article with your Realtor contacts on projects you may have worked on that went beyond the "usual property marketing" - I think home staging is still beyond the "usual property marketing" that most sellers are utilizing and this would be another educational opportunity to share that with the real estate community.

Original content by REALTOR® Magazine

With so many homes on the market today, it can take a lot to get buyers or their agent to notice your listing and set up an appointment to see it. Sometimes it requires a bit more creativivity to get the word out and ramp up interest. 

For the April issue of REALTOR® Magazine, please share with us your most creative strategies for marketing a home. What are some unusual strategies that you've tried and found success with? A selection of the responses here will be included in the crowdsourced List Issue!

Thanks so much for your expert insights!

We will blog, when it is listed, for each open house, create an electronic fluer that goes out to realtors and consumers alike.  We send postcards to all the neighbors when we have an open house, inviting them to a neighborohood only preview.  We call it help pick your new neighbor.

How about a talking virtual tour, listing website, lead capture audio tour system, tools for social networking sites, fast way to post the tour, website and addl info to sites like active rain and craigs list, auto submission to national feeds like Zillow and Trulia, an online TV show of your listings, online magazines to email out, mapping of all your listings and lots more in about 15 minutes per listing?  All for under $30.00 per month for all the agents listings (up to 50).  No toll free number fees or per minute fees on call capture either.  Visit www.homezonemedia.com or call 888-882-1259 for more information.  Cover all the electronic marketing bases and impress the heck out of your sellers and buyers.  Individual agents are welcome, but office deals can bring the price down a bunch.

Karen,

I know you reblogged this, but have you considered writing for a magazine?  Seriously.  You would be a terrific addition, and it would open up a new Sphere of Influence!
