Marketing Plan for Texas Real Estate
When you’re ready to take the next step towards selling your home, land, farm or ranch, Longhorn Realty is here to help. Our comprehensive marketing plans will get your Central Texas real estate sold quickly and efficiently! Shown below is a brief summary of how we market our listings.
First, we will learn about you and your property. We determine your property value by utilizing numerous real estate transaction sources to formulate a competitive list price. We use the most recent and most relevant real estate transactions to aid us in determining list prices. Our comps include sold properties and competing listings. Our end goal, to net you the very best return possible from the sell of your property!
“We make a point every day to get our listings, in some form or fashion, in front of potential buyers.”
Marketing Your Property
Our custom marketing plans are tailored just for you and your property. Highlighting the unique qualities and improvements of your property is an important role of our marketing plan. Property data, professional photos, interactive aerial maps, videos, virtual tours, property flyers and beneficial documents are presented to potential buyers through our website, MLS, social media, paid sites, member sites, email campaigns and our own professional network.
Digital & Internet Marketing
Folks, love it or hate digital marketing is where it’s at these days. Some of our digital and internet marketing includes our own killer website (which is extremely mobile friendly), Pay Per Click Campaigns (PPC), Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Social Media, Custom Blogs, Interactive Mapping, Inbound Marketing and much more that our competition doesn’t need to know about!
Since 92% of potential buyers use the internet first when looking for real estate, this is a big part of our marketing strategy that we can’t afford to miss.
We realized we had a great website when hear how much other agents and brokers use it to search for properties. Our site is highly customized to deliver more useful information, photos and maps on listings than most other sites. Users find our site flows well, is easy to use, provides advanced search tools, interactive property search map and a dashboard to save and setup searches and receive email updates on listings. We provide all of these free website services so buyers will come to our site and find our seller’s listings.
With up to 60% of Longhorn Realty’s web traffic coming from mobile devices we’ve designed an extremely mobile friendly site that’s easy to use from all handheld devices and tablets.
Today, more than 80% of people who use Facebook as a social network see videos and online stories there. So it only makes sense to use that information to promote our clients listings. On a daily basis we post on social media property photos, videos, coming soon info, new listing info and eventually under contract & sold property photos. We utilize various social media platforms. So much more to say here that we prefer to say in person.
We send out email blasts no less than every month to quality leads who may have interest in our listings. In addition to our monthly emails we also do new listing notifications. We choose to be infrequent with our email campaigns to minimize the amount of people who unsubscribe. Our email list contains buyers, real estate professionals and people who have signed-up to use our website. It’s a great may to get our client’s listings in front of potential buyers and people who may know potential buyers.
Using creative media sources, such as custom blog posts, social media posts, video sharing, and email campaigns is a great way for us to engage with potential buyers about our client’s properties. Once these are set in place they become the gift that keeps on giving. A custom blog for example, with the proper SEO work, keeps reeling in potential buyers from all of the search engines forever or until I turn it off. That’s pretty powerful!
I can’t even begin to do justice in describing the power that MLS marketing provides. Only Texas licensed agents and brokers in good standing and with active MLS memberships can post listings on a Texas MLS. Our MLS memberships currently include Austin MLS, Central Texas MLS and Highland Lakes MLS. A simple MLS listing can offer an incredible amount of exposure on other broker/agent sites and other real estate websites. We shed some light on this below.
Our website shows all Austin MLS listings through an IDX feed subscription. All other brokers and agents who have websites with an IDX feed to Austin MLS will also display your listing on their website. That’s possibly 1000’s of other broker and agent sites that your listing appears on.
MLS, as well as some of the paid sites we use, syndicates your listing to numerous other real estate related websites. This includes big name, national sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia and many more.
Yes, we still pick up the phone and call our network of family, friends, agents, brokers and lenders searching for buyers for your listing. A large number of deals are still made from phone calls. We also send personal emails with your property information directly to folks we feel might be interested.
And lets not forget about the power signs. Signs can provide up to 10% of our inquires on properties.
