Open House – There are three basic types of open houses that agents use and for different purposes: Public Open Houses, Agent Caravans and Broker Open Houses. Each type of open house has a specific purpose and is designed to help create a different result. Discuss with your agent the correct use of each.
Printed Materials – Print is still an integral part of marketing a property. A quality brochure is both memorable and powerful. Despite what the digital world would have us believe, printed materials still matter.
Targeted Email Blasts – Statistics show that 9 in 10 buyer use a Realtor in the sale of their property. Likewise, all Realtors tend to specialize by geography, price and/or asset type. Knowing this, One South created a proprietary software program to identify the agents most likely to be working with a buyer with a profile that matches the property you need to sell. By understanding buyer agent tendencies, One South is able to communicate with the Realtor community more accurately, more often and with less noise to the end user.
