SOLD using good old fashion real estate techniques from the 1960's

Sometimes it feels that good customer service is hard to find. The quick and easy way of clicking buttons and posting on blogs can make you feel disconnected from your real estate agent While tech tools are fun, shiny, new and ever changing, old fashion one on one communication is the bedrock for excellent customer service. 

 

Below are 3 homes we recently sold where we used old and forgotten techniques to get these homes SOLD and not just listed.  

 

3077 Camden Court Atlanta GA 30331

The home on Camden court was a challenging sale in that we did not have signage, a lockbox or fliers available at the property which cut our traffic down by about 30%. Our owners wanted appointment only showings between special hours, on certain days and no showings while they were out of town. Both were seniors and wanted no one wear shoes in the home while they allowed us to do just one open house - for 1 hour only.

 

Now most agents would have only performed services that were based on internet only. Based on our challenges we used the internet but took it a few steps further by doing thousand piece mailers and created a calling list of neighboring homes, among a few other steps to not only secure one solid buyer but a total of 7 buyers who all wrote offers and brought us 2 more buyers and 1 new listing.  

We came up with the idea of a "Hit and Run" Open house which was new and unheard of in the area and which created a mystique about the home and ramp-ed up interest like you wouldn't believe. There is an energy and a buzz that is created when you invite hundreds of people to an open house that is only held for one hour. You force a funnel that is targeted right on that home to drop in a buyer who is both serious and motivated.  The secret sauce is in the 9 hours of prep time needed to pull it off and is a bit too detailed to explain here in this blog post but if you would like to know the exact steps taken you can reply to this blog post with "tell me more" or opt in to our site at www.AtlantaBrickHomes.com 

In the end, we created enough buzz to get our clients the highest price sold on a home in the subdivision in 4 years with a gain of 67.5% profit. We also generated another 500,000 in sales as a result of the marketing on other properties

586 Landers Drive Mableton GA 30126

The home on 586 Landers Drive sold in 4 days using the same methods and sold around 3% higher than the asking price at $137% gain.

 

 

 

361 Gordon Valley Drive

 

 361 Gordon Valley sold in 14 days as-is, with no seller concessions/closing costs. The sellers walked away with a 164.71% gain. Want to know how we did it? Want similar results for your proeprty?

Nice job on not sitting back and waiting for someone else to sell it.

Funny how a 1960's idea that others would consider old fashioned would help you sell the deal.

I guess targeted direct mail isn't dead!
