When homes and properties don’t sell the first time around, sellers are often worn out but also more desperate to get the job done and sell. Marketing plays a huge and important role not only in reaching out to these expired listings but also in successfully selling their home afterwards. After you’ve acquired the expired listing in Manhattan or Brooklyn, you’ll want to begin your marketing blitz to sell the property.
When working to sell the expired listing’s property after you’ve gained them as a client, printed materials are vital to market the home or property. Professionally designed flyers, postcards and testimonials packets will go a long way toward reaching out. When something is designed well and aesthetically pleasing to the eye, we want to look longer and read more. It means you took your time and care about what you’re doing. Hang flyers to advertise for open houses, put postcards and material in mailboxes to spread the word about the home. And leave information on community bulletin boards as well.
