Featuring vendors at your open houses and in listing presentations can help you and your sellers! Promote your vendors with a flyer and signage in exchange for client discounts.
A home sells best when it shows best: we all know this. But sellers don’t always have the money, time, or connections to make it happen. Staging, yard work, fresh paint, and interior repairs by a trusted resource —all necessary for a quick sale at a good price—can be overwhelming. You can help by forging partnerships with local experts. Find a landscaper, a painter, a handy person who will do the work for your clients at a discount in exchange for promotion. You can:
- Display signs around the property with the vendors’ information
- Allow vendors to display brochures inside the home
- Create flyers for your listing that include names and contact information of all vendors who worked on the property
- Include these vendors and their services in your listing presentation
This relationship is a win-win-win. First, you have happy, grateful clients; second, a home that will most likely sell faster and for a better price; and third, you maximize the network within your own community: After all, since your referrals strengthen those vendors’ businesses, you can expect referrals in return.
