Marketing Options

The Objective of marketing your property is to reach as many potential buyers in your target market as possible. Your property is competing with many others in the marketplace so it’s important your property is presented in its best possible light and in the most appropriate, cost-effective places.

  • Selwyn Times – Selwyn Property Guide
  • Property Press
  • Realtor
  • The Christchurch Press
  • Local community newspapers

Brochures & Flyers

We have a range of brochures and flyers suitable for any property and purpose. They will be available at open homes and can be letterbox dropped around your area.

Open homes

We recommend that you make your property available for open homes during the marketing period.

  • Open homes allow buyers to see your house at its prepared best, rather than catching you when you are busy with other things.
  • Inspections at other times will be minimized, making it more convenient for you.
  • Having more buyers inspecting your property at the same time can create a sense of urgency and competition.
  • Potential buyers feel more comfortable imagining themselves living in the property when you are not present.
  • Potential buyers communicate more openly when you are no present, giving the salesperson the opportunity to address any obstacles.
