How to Market “I have a buyer in your neighborhood”

Posted by Marketing on Apr 21st, 2021

Have you ever seen direct mail pieces that lead with, “I have a buyer looking in your neighborhood”? As direct as this message might appear, it does attract the attention of homeowners and could result in more real estate listings in your farm area. It’s a powerful and proven real estate marketing technique.

You can use this tactic to connect buyers to homes they actually like. You can also use it to identify the area or type of home your client wants. This makes it easier for you to send personalized letters to homeowners in a particular area or with the type of house your client is looking for. It’s important to use tax records to get the right name or your target audience will quickly dispose of postcards and door hangers designed to intrigue them into selling their home.

Sample Text for Micro-targeted Door Hangers and Postcards

Here’s a sample excerpt of this type of marketing message:

Dear[first and last name of homeowner],

My name is Rela State, and I’m an agent representing clients looking to move into this area. They want a three-bedroom home with an attached garage and a large yard. While touring the area, my client expressed interest in your home. If you are interested in showing your home for a potential sale, please let me know at your earliest convenience.

You can reach me at 444-4444-4444 or email me at realestate@brokername.com.

Sincerely,

Real State

Licensed Real Estate Agent

You can also use customized postcards and door hangers with information about recent sales in the area, particularly if you have sold similar homes in the neighborhood.
