CHAPTER 3: REAL ESTATE FLYERS VS. PROPERTY BROCHURES BROCHURES BROCHURES

USING DIRECT MAIL MARKETING

A real estate flyer allows a real estate agent to dispense information about a listing, but generally lacks in the necessary design elements to really “wow” the recipient. At REAL Marketing, we produce property brochures on behalf of our clients.

In contrast to flyers, property brochures implement a variety of design elements to dispense information, and often provide a much more in-depth, overall snapshot of a particular property. If you’re moving into a new market, a property brochure is the ideal way to present yourself as the neighborhood expert, and stand out amongst your competitors. A professionally designed property brochure may even entice other homeowners in the area to list with you so that their property can be featured for the whole neighborhood to see. If you want to leave a lasting impression, an eye-catching, professionally-designed property brochure is an effective way to do so.

HOW CAN YOU USE REAL ESTATE BROCHURES?

Target the areas you’re either already working in or wish to establish a presence in. Basically, if you’ve found a market that doesn’t currently have an established neighborhood expert, you can use professionally designed property brochures to help lay the foundation. The majority of real estate professionals aren’t necessarily producing high-quality brochures, so creating marketing materials that will outshine the materials your competitors are using is a great way to differentiate yourself. You can use a real estate property brochure to show potential clients how much you care about the properties you work with, how you go above and beyond in all aspects of your career, and how, consequently, you’re a step or two above every other real estate agent in the area who isn’t putting in as much effort in producing custom, professionally-designed direct mail marketing materials.

 

Remember, every set of eyes that sees your brochure represents an opportunity to expand your customer database in the future. If a potential home seller is impressed with how effectively you’re able to market the property featured in your brochure, they’ll likely be more willing to contact you in the event they want to sell their home. Pride of home ownership is a very real thing, and should always be considered when working with home sellers. Generally speaking, most people want to see their own homes “up in lights.” and a professionally designed property brochure is the ideal way to do so.

 

If a potential buyer is impressed with your property brochure, it will potentially peak their interest, influence them to contact you to find out more about the property, and could lead to a partnership with them as their real estate agent. Property brochures can be used to expand your real estate database, nurture leads into clients, and show recipients that you’re willing to put in the time and expense to really market a property to its full potential.

what should be included in a
property brochure?

A real estate property brochure is an opportunity to show the most important details potential homebuyers and sellers are interested in learning more about. High-quality photos, clean design, and highlighting the most eye-catching aspects of the property all combine together to tell a very compelling story that recipients will want to familiarize themselves with.

In order to deliver the best presentation possible, you’ll want to include the most important details that help showcase how amazing the property is. Photography will be a cornerstone of this direct mail marketing piece, so be sure to hire a professional photographer in order to obtain the type of high-end photos that are really going to grab everyone’s attention. Remember, you’re depicting a lifestyle, not just a property, so be sure to include any local images that are recognizable, are associated with the type of lifestyle you’re trying to sell, and generally make people want to move into the area.

Featuring the most desirable design elements and other features of the home is another key to really capturing the essence of why the property is so valuable. Photos of the property’s potential will help craft a story that homebuyers want to hear — and potential home sellers want you to tell on their behalf.

Potential buyers and sellers want to know the value you can bring to the table, so be sure to showcase your expertise with relevant facts and figures that show you’re an experienced, sought after real estate agent. Highlight your wins as they pertain to the property, or similar properties, and really paint yourself as THE authority in the given market. First impressions are key to creating a reputation worth remembering, and there’s no better way for real estate agents to make a great first impression in a new market than with a beautifully designed property brochure.

In addition to the details surrounding the property, remember to also include your contact information. The last thing you want to do is create a visually stunning property brochure that no one is able to easily connect with your real estate practice. If you’re going to direct recipients to a website, for instance, be sure that the look and feel of the property emulates the look and feel of the property brochure. At REAL Marketing, we offer neighborhood-specific websites and landing pages that are produced and maintained specifically as online validation tools. In other words, these websites help reinforce the localized direct mail marketing campaigns that we build on behalf of our clients. They’re intended to help real estate agents capture leads AS A RESULT OF viewing a professionally crafted property brochure, all in an effort to expand the agent’s real estate database.

It’s essential to have a solid call-to-action and give people a reason to contact you. Your message will play a huge factor in the response you get, so put some thought into your messaging and be willing to spend your marketing budget on direct mail pieces that are going to truly be memorable and cement your placement as the local neighborhood expert.
