One close to agency and the other close to a company who marketed property.When it came time to sell the owner with a little bit of agency experience chose to only market through a single method of advertising. Due to its high traction with buyers he chose a digital only campaign and marketed in the highest possible position on the front page.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus19 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market19 hours agoThe cost was about $3000. This, in combination with the office’s database, generated 16 groups through the four week campaign and a sale price just after the auction in the early $700,000s.You’ve got to spread your message as far as you can to get all possible buyers, according to Haesley Cush. AAP Image/Claudia Baxter. The owner with the marketing experience also understood the benefits of digital advertising on realestate.com.au and its enormous following from buyers. But they also used a combination of print marketing, again the highest listing on the online portals, high gloss brochures and again the agent’s database. Costing close to $15,000. The result was 50 groups through the campaign and a sale in the high $800,000s.In fairness the $870,000 property is a better home in a better location. But you can’t tell all of that just from the ads.To receive three times the number of inspections in such a small little suburb certainly adds weight to the benefit of a full marketing campaign.So why did the gentleman with a little bit of agency knowledge not go the whole hog? The truth is the vast majority of agents don’t. They haven’t seen the benefits of a full campaign or if they have they only remember the campaigns they ran that had underwhelming results. They definitely remember the disappointment of the owners who didn’t get strong numbers from their big advertising campaigns, so they became gun shy on recommending it.The reality is a strong campaign will likely generate more buyers.It’s not one versus the other. Real estate is a contact sport, the more buyers your agent is in contact with the more competition your property will likely receive.

Indianapolis, IN – As government officials and health care experts across our state, our nation, and the world continue to explore ways to combat the spread of COVID-19, we all must do our best to be a part of the solution. For the thousands upon thousands of individuals who are a part of Special Olympics Indiana — which exists to break down barriers for people with intellectual disabilities and to bring people together through year-round programs and events centering on sports — doing our part means disrupting our typically-full calendar by postponing or cancelling events and by discouraging the people we serve from taking part in any and all group activities during this difficult time.Special Olympics International has strongly advised us to extend our ongoing suspension of all practices, competitions, and events involving athletes levels through at least May 31.Again, Special Olympics Indiana will cancel or postpone ALL planned in-person activities at the County, Area, and State levels through May, including but not limited to ALPs University and all 10 Area Spring Games. We are currently exploring options for rescheduling or hosting a condensed version of our beloved Summer Games later in the year, but those plans are uncertain and will be subject to our ability to safely resume activity in a timely manner without endangering the health of our athletes and volunteers. More details will be communicated when available; in the meantime, rest assured that we will be monitoring the situation closely and will make every effort to resume our regularly-scheduled programming as soon as possible.Courtesy of Special Olympics Indiana President and CEO Jeff Mohler. Furthermore, because the necessary opportunities for training and preparation will no longer be available to competitors this spring, the 2020 Indiana Summer Games will NOT go on as planned on the weekend of June 12-14 in Terre Haute.
