This ‘Marketing Machine‘
WILL Get YOUR Property SOLD!
We – MARKET YOUR PROPERTY to ‘SELL’
JUST – ADVERTISE it ‘FOR SALE’
Marketing, in a nutshell:
- Is the Megaphone for Your Listing
- It Screams to the World That Your Property is For Sale,
- That it’s Worth Taking a Look at and…
- Why it’s Better Than the Competition
- Then Impacts Buyers to Look at and Want to Buy Your Place
Whether they are Local or Out of Area buyers. (Including Interstate & Overseas)
They may be Actively looking or just Passively researching.
You Need ALL These Buyers to See it.
Great Marketing Leads to:
- More views
- Higher interest & engagements,
- More enquiries from competing buyers
- Leading to more inspections,
- Which mean a greater perceived value
- Therefore, stronger negotiations
- We’ll ATTRACT More Buyers For Your Property
- Because We Have Greater Resources to Market Your Property!
- We COMPETE the Buyers Against Each Other to Negotiate Their Best Offers!
This Results in Your Optimal Price!
Without Marketing, you just have a ‘Billboard in the Forest’
No-one notices it and any potential price-fever is lost.
Your investment in marketing is an investment in profit.
What is More Valuable to You? “The Risk Over-Marketing or the Risk of Under-Selling and Losing Tens of Thousands of Dollars?”
So, if you are serious about selling, invest in the best marketing plan available to ensure your property gets seen by as many qualified buyers as possible.
You can discover more about Marketing here.
- Marketing is designed to Highlight your Property to Generate Strong Interest & Buyer Leads.
- These buyers are encouraged to visit your own property website, where there is no competition from other sellers.
- We intend to introduce loads of purchasers, create competition amongst them to leverage better offers.
The sites are optimised to work on Desktop, Laptop, Tablet & All Mobile Devices.
Why is This Important?
Because the Internet Allows Buyers to Eliminate as Many Homes as Possible Before They…
- actually, get into their car
- to look around the community
- drive through the neighbourhood
- before they examine your street
- then consider the outside, before
- they step inside to inspect your house
As any of these can be a show stopper! It’s imperative that Online & Offline Marketing, especially the Photographs & Your Property Presentation meets their expectations.
Your Property HAS To Be On Their Shopping List, So…
FIRST – We Need to Make Sure, They TURN Up!

2 SMS/ Text Messages the 1’st is sent within an hour
2 Voicemails the 1’st is sent the following day
*The Systems are Automated, SO, it Happens Each & Every Time & No-one is Overlooked.*

2. Pricing & Market Value
You do not need to decide an asking price at the time of your property Appraisal.
Sellers have found this is best discussed, reviewed and decided after your property is completely ready and before the marketing begins.
You can adjust your asking price depending on which Method of Sale you choose.
The 3 Pricing Options allowed in South Australia are
- No Price Fixed Price
- Fixed Price or
- Price Range of up to 10%.
Pricing consideration includes the Logical Price as well as the Emotional Price.
Market value is set by the market. Not by agents nor anyone else.
What exactly will a buyer pay? We don’t know – nor does anyone else. We’re just willing to admit it.
Comparable Sales will Help BUT There’s No Recommended Retail Price for a Property.
The Only Price That Matters… is, What the Right Buyers, Who Love Your Place, Will Actually Pay You.
We know you want as much as you can get!
So – Here’s HOW We’ll Get You The Right Buyers – To LOVE Your Place – So They’ll Pay You MORE For it!
