Three years ago, as the nation sank into a depression, the world of real estate sank
along with it to a lower place than ever before. As ‘Reality Biz News’ reports, even
Dubai, which was once one of the world’s most successful real estate markets until
2008, has been effected. Since then, their performance has been poor. The law of supply and demand
was thrown severely off balance as the supply overflowed and brought on extremely
low prices while the demand sank with the lack of buyers. According to the experts, this
unbalance could stay in place for years to come.
‘Reality Biz’ goes on to share that the situation has been made worse by the fact that
the economy all over the world is in a critical state, and inflation is bringing a negative
effect on the buying power of those people who are interested in investing. The recent
tightening of credit allowances has caused many of the people who once were able to
purchase property to be unable to get a real estate loan. Those who want to sell their
property are finding it very difficult to find buyers. With all of that said, it may seem
impossible to even hope for success in the real estate market. But with smart marketing
strategies, you can draw in quite a large pool of perspective buyers.
Place Your Ad in Newspapers
Although it may seem like an old fashioned way to advertise, newspaper ads are still a
terrific way to get your message to the public. Most newspapers still have a dedicated
page just for real estate, and you can usually post your property for a reasonable price.
By putting the details of your property clearly into your ad, and making an attractive and
convincing page, you can attract local buyers. With the large circulation of papers, your
ad will reach many potential buyers.
Check with Local Real Estate Agents
It is always a good plan to consult with the area experts on such things as property laws
and other local real estate “rules.” Most of the time real estate offices will have lists of
most of the area’s properties which are for sale, as well as the potential purchasers and
investors. These lists can usually be purchased pretty cheaply. You can also choose to let
the real estate agent come up with a marketing plan and suggest buyers in the area who
may be just right for your properties. The good news about this method is that you only
have to pay commission to the agent if the properties actually sell.
Try Property Portal Listings and Social Media
You can use any B2B portal to list your properties on. Some of these are very well
known and can bring success to your real estate venture. For some of these portals,
you will be charged a fee, but others will allow you to list your real estate for free. With
these postal listings, your property will be listed using SEO tactics so that your ads are
more visible online. You can also use social media to market yourself. Creating pages on
Facebook, Twitter, and more is a terrific and free way to get word of your real estate all
over the world. Entrepreneurs everywhere are tapping into this method of advertising
which is versatile, high profile, cost efficient, and allows them to interact with others in
