The power of on-line marketing
The internet has revolutionised the world we live in.
From the launch of the World Wide Web in the early 1990’s, to the the development of the smart phone in the early 2000’s to the more recent advent of social media networking, it’s difficult to even fathom how much our lives have changed over the past three decades. The ways in which we communicate and shop for goods and services have been revolutionised, and entire industries have been either transformed or in some cases, wiped out by these sweeping changes. Yet many real estate agents still cling to antiquated marketing methods, unable to grasp the fact that the rest of the world has moved on. At House, you can be sure that we have moved right along with you; Our digital marketing strategies are second to none.

Getting your marketing campaign right is crucial to obtaining the highest possible price. The formula for success in today’s marketing landscape can be summarised by the following three stage process:

The customer base has shifted almost completely from traditional media to on-line

Ten or fifteen years ago, the world of real estate was a different place. Agents and vendors spent heavily on print media campaigns in local and metropolitan newspapers, and the likes of realestate.com.au were still in their infancy and generally seen as little more than a cheap alternative to tradtional advertising. Fast forward to today and the user base has shifted almost completely to on-line portals, smart-phone apps and social media.

86% of buyers now use on-line as their preferred method of shopping for property. This is significant, and with so much competition it’s important that your property stands out from the hundreds of others for sale in your area.

Property sale timeline
A brief description of the sequence of events that occurs when you sell your property.

First thoughts of selling, appraisal inspection with agent booked
The first seeds have been sown and you have decided to contact an agent to discuss selling your property. Luckily, House Property Agents are active in your area and a sales professional phones you back quickly and an appraisal appointment is booked.
Your first meeting with your real estate agent
Your real estate sale professional will come to visit you to discuss the likely value of your property, fees and charges, and offer advice on any works or improvements that could be done to the property to help expedite the sale. You are happy with everything and decide to move forward with a nominated campaign launch date agreed upon with the agent.
The property is ready to go on the market
Now that you have completed your tidy-up and/or refurbishment works, your House Estate Agent will now conduct what we call a “soft launch” – Where we arrange to photograph the property, procure advertising copy and conduct an internal marketing launch to the existing buyer database to determine if your home is suitable any of our existing buyer customers.
