How To Increase Your Real Estate Sales

Jun 18, 2008
Due to the recent declines in the housing market, real estate competition has become more intense than ever before. To succeed, companies need to implement effective marketing campaigns and increase their quality of service. Several tactics are available to incorporate into your overall strategy, and depending on your unique situation, some options may be more valuable than others.

When talking to a prospect, remember to look at the situation from their point of view. Question them so that you understand their priorities and what they are looking for in a property. If they have kids, for example, that narrows their housing choices down considerably. The more you know about a prospective client, the better.

Property developers also need to utilize as many selling tools as possible to satisfy customers. When presenting models of properties, advanced computer generated imaging should be taken advantage of, as opposed to conventional drawings or drafts. In fact, CGI has become so cheap that nearly any established developer can afford it. Clients want to see exactly how a property is going to turn out, and CGI is the perfect option to achieve that desire.

All firms, real estate or not, require an online presence to achieve their full potentials. Having a platform on the Internet allows clients to easily see visuals, download brochures, and express to visitors the benefits of choosing to settle in a specific area. Websites allow you to quickly collect information on prospects, and build a database. With that database, you can send out a message to mass amounts of people at the click of a button. For promotional reasons, search engine optimization should be heavily focused on, as search engine visitors are the highest converting.

Instead of spending huge sums of money on advertising, why not focus on public relations and publicity to spread brand knowledge? After all, publicity is free and more believable than paid advertising. Whenever a newsworthy company event occurs, a press release should be written and distributed to a number of online press release websites, as well as editors of local newspapers. Chances are that every website will accept your release and a few newspapers will feature a short story.

One of the hottest topics up for debate is the environment. Global warming, climate change, and energy concerns fill the minds of billions of people around the world. Most of America has now become environmentally conscious, and businesses need to accommodate for and accept this fact. Therefore, as a developer, it is integral that you incorporate green technologies into all of your properties. Not only will this make clients more excited and willing to do business with you, but you will be doing your part to help the environment and promote sustainability of the human race.

Huge sources of prospects include social networks and Web 2.0 websites, where visitors converse with each other and contribute to the site itself. Businesses that can effectively establish themselves in these kinds of websites often see huge increases in their customer bases. This is because prospects on social networks are more apt to trust companies that are part of the same groups they are. However, before you start to see measurable results from any social networks, you need to work on becoming well known and respected within that network, which can take months or even years.
