Virtual Home Tours in Times of COVID-19

Posted by Marketing on Jul 9th, 2020

Despite social distancing and PPE requirements, it’s still possible to show and sell homes safely. By taking advantage of digital technology, real estate agents can direct homeowners on how to stage the property and conduct virtual tours with home buyers sitting safely at home. Let’s take a look at what applications agents are using to show homes virtually and how you can maximize your exposure with smart direct marketing. 

Virtual Showing Technology

For empty properties, you can still do live showings, walking the client through the home, pointing out features and lingering in certain rooms remote buyers want to see more of. Some owners invest in virtual reality home tours that give prospective home buyers a panoramic, 3D view of each room. Virtual neighborhood walks and drives provide even more context for buyers to make an informed decision. 

Thanks to new technology, virtual showings reveal much more than clicking through gallery pictures. Best of all, you can maintain social distancing rules and help all parties stay safe and healthy.

Best Apps for Video Tours

There are a number of ways to conduct digital tours from your Android or iPhone. Whether you’re using FaceTime, Facebook Live, Zoom or What’s App, you can film your tour to post on social media or to clients expressing an interest in the home. 

This marketing method lacks the sophistication of glossy video tour productions, but gives the tour a personal feel, much like regular in-person showings do. There are also many free, open-source applications you can experiment with for videos that allow you to virtually stage the home for different clients.

Some Companies Are Buying Ad Time

National and regional real estate firms are buying ad time on cable and network television touting COVID-19 safe practices, including virtual tours. This raises awareness for this type of home showings for potential buyers and sellers and helps normalize the practice. Whether  you fall under the umbrella of a regional or national real estate company or out of a smaller local office with smaller marketing budgets, direct mail is a great way to communicate to local sellers in your market. And if you don’t have the support of a mass media budget, it’s the best way to reach your local target market. 

Direct Mail Fits In Your Marketing Budget 

Direct mail campaigns allow you to reach target homeowners who might be ready to sell and worry about having buyers in their homes. Choose from jumbo full-color postcards that contain your latest sales in the area, as well as your contact and other important information. ReaMark also has a full selection of COVID-19 postcards designed to help families get through the pandemic together. 

You can add recipes, home selling and maintenance tips, and advice on how to stay entertained during lockdown. Instead of going big, you are micro-targeting certain neighborhoods and homeowners in an impressive yet personalized advertising channel. Just make sure you are memorable and sincere in your messaging!

Real Estate Postcards

People love our exclusive recipes and are sure to save the postcard, along with your contact information. Your clients will use these recipes repeatedly, and each time they will be reminded of your real estate services.

2. Home Tips: Second to recipes, we get the best feedback on our Home Tips postcards. Because each card features a helpful hint that any homeowner will appreciate, they are sure to keep them until they are ready to buy or sell. The longer someone keeps your information, they more likely they will be to use it!

3. Spot 6 Differences: These visual puzzles are irresistible to anyone! Young or old, people will pick up these cards and stare at them for 5 minutes or more!

Developing a Contact List:

Posted by Rick on Jun 30th, 2020

Before you spend a penny prospecting, it is imperative that you are mailing your contact list at least on a monthly basis. Your contact list should include:

 

  • Friends
  • Family
  • Past Clients
  • Neighbors
  • Networking Contacts
  • Church/Political Party/Social Club Members
  • Past Employers, Colleagues or Co-Workers
  • Parents of your Children’s Friends
  • School Teachers
  • Your Insurance Agent, Your Mechanic, Your Hair Dresser…
  • ANYONE who knows you

 

You should send regular mailings to anyone who knows who you are. Since over half of your business should come from referrals, it is important to advertise your services on a consistent basis to anyone who knows you, trusts you, and may pass on your information to someone else. Not only are you tapping into your own market, but the hope is that these people will also refer you to others who need a real estate agent.

 

One of the first steps any new realtor should take is developing their contact list. In the beginning, you may only have a small list of 100 contacts, but grow this list over time as it is where you will get the majority of your business in the long run. The top realtors generally have a contact list of 400 or more and they will tell you that this is where your marketing dollars are best spent.

ReaMark Group Orders – Combine your Orders to Maximize Your Discounts!

Posted by Rick on Jun 30th, 2020

Another way ReaMark helps you keep your business growing while minimizing your expenses is with our Group Orders. Group orders receive the combined quantity discount for all the agents in the group at the time the order is placed.

Each order within the group is treated as an individual order, so that each agent may select his/her own cards and personalization options. We send an individual layout proof to each agent, and begin production once we receive the agent’s layout approval. Orders do not need to wait for other agents approvals in the group.

 

Here’s what some of our customers have to say about ReaMark’s Group Order Program:

“We Saved Over $1,600 On Each Order!” “Our office has been ordering postcards from ReaMark for the last four years. I am very impressed with how easy and smoothly the entire process is when placing group orders. My colleagues and I have saved thousands of dollars by combining our orders and taking advantage of the great group discounts. Your quality products, customer service, and low prices are the best! Thanks ReaMark!”
Bev Younger
Leech Lake Realty–Walker, Minnesota

 

“I have placed over 20 orders with REAMARK since 2002 and have been quite satisfied with each one. I like using the REAMARK website, because you make it easy to order at any time from my office or home computer. You have a wide selection, plus when my fellow agents and I order together, we get our cards at a significantly lower price.”
Barbara Ostroth
Coldwell Banker-Oradell, New Jersey
