Q: Denise, I am working on finessing my listing presentation and I am having your team make me a presentation prop for what I do to market the home in print. This includes samples of just listed and special feature cards, listing letters to the neighborhood, and some of my open house materials. However, I am not sure if I should include my 1 page house flyer that I use for about half my listings or the 4 page house flyer that I use for high-end listings. What do you recommend?
A: You have several choices here. I assume the determining factor of whether you use the one page house flyer versus the four page is either price point or finishes. Basically what you have here is a basic listing program and a higher-end or luxury listing program. Is the house flyer really the only difference between these two programs? If so, I would put the one page house flyer on the board and then bring a sample of a four page house flyer that you just have loose that you show your luxury clients.
However, if you dig a bit deeper and determine that you actually do a lot more for a luxury listing – perhaps you do a brokers open with lunch, put a photo ad in the paper or in a real estate magazine, or do some advanced staging or merchandising, create a video and a single property website, syndicate the listing on luxury-specific websites, and incorporate drone photography, then perhaps you need to have a separate listing presentation set of props which highlights your luxury program.
