MARKETING REAL ESTATE is a matter of correct pricing, the right presentation, and optimal exposure. Quality marketing and good exposure are important, but correct pricing carries by far the most weight in the successful outcome of a marketing campaign.
THE VALUATION PROCESS
The valuation of Real Estate is a highly intuitive and instinctive process that hinges on countless variables, many of which are highly subjective. More of an art than a science the process requires practice, knowledge, training, and experience for reliable results. In at least 8 out of 10 cases of an unsuccessful marketing attempt of a defective valuation process is to blame.
With over 30 years of Real Estate industry experience I deliver valuation estimates with above average accuracy. In working with a lot of buyers I receive constant feedback from the sector of market participants that ultimately determine all pricing variables. I’m familiar with advanced valuation techniques and price adjustment strategies, such as Paired Data Analysis, Resale Analysis, the Quality Point Technique, and in some cases, Multiple Regression Analysis, etc, to arrive at the most reliable valuation estimate possible - typically within 2% to 3% of the final selling price.
HIGHER QUALITY MARKETING MEDIA AND BETTER EXPOSURE
Quality media and optimal exposure represent the remaining 20% of what determines a successful marketing outcome. This is where you can maximise price and improve timing. The marketing media pages I produce include the highest quality architectural photography available, video footage, 3D virtual tours, floor plans, an extensive 30+ page property report, and access to a 3D furniture staging platform.
A better presentation leads to more showings, and higher exposure will reach matching buyers faster, leading to an optimal concentration of interest, and spirit of competitiveness, that typically resolves in more offers, faster offers, higher prices, and faster sales.
Currently, we are the only Real Estate office in Victoria with a highly skilled full-time in-house media professional with a background in television, who creates stunning Real Estate marketing materials exclusively for our property listings.
