After last week's post on marketing my commercial unit myself, I received many emails with tips and encouragement. Thanks for that!
Readers commented that they prefer dealing with owners of property directly as they know the property best. I know this is not everyone's thing and a lot of real estate agents do a great job, but in my case I think this is working as I can spend time with interested parties and provide good service!
Someone said it's useful to have an open home as people like the structured approach. Great idea! I will plan some in the next couple of weeks!
Here are a few other marketing activities I've carried out in the last week:
- Registered www.unitforsale.co.nz. This website address links to the page on this website with information on the unit. I have added more photos and information to it. Having a specific website address for a marketing campaing enables me to track (through Google Analytics) how many people view this page.
- New photos photos on Trademe listing so it stays 'fresh'.
- I'm having 250 flyers printed that will be distributed to my target market next week.
- I have shown a handful of interested parties the unit (and there are a few more in the pipeline, and hopefully one of them will be a buyer!). The majority of these people are exactly the type of people that would love living and working here. Some are overseas for part of the year and want a 'pied a terre' in Queenstown that requires no maintenance.
So, it's been an exciting journey in just the first week and a half! I'll keep you posted.
And if you know of anyone that is looking for a unit like this one (in near-new condition), please email them the link www.unitforsale.co.nz .
