the assistant

a content creator

and some friends that the developer think are the ideal buyers.

Now, let’s put together our roadmap:



  1. Identify you market segment

The first step it’s also the hardest ones.

Most real estate developers are scared to target a very narrow market segment because they tend to embrace a large audience in order to feel up their properties as fastest as they can.

Nothing can be more wrong than that.

In this way, it’s almost impossible to create a very strong branding positioning.

In the end, the property will be filled from so many different people that nobody can find affinity with someone else.

The living experience should be on top of your priorities.

Do not try to sell your property, try to sell your lifestyle.

In order to be able to reach this goal, you have to target people with the same profiles, same affinity and same interest.

Ask your friends (your ideal customer) on the meeting with you what they like to have in their homes, in their building, in their neighbourhood as amenities, transportation and other features and make a list.

Now make a list of your actual features and check how many of them are in both lists, all the common items are your most important marketing leverage tools.

A quick tip: more people you gonna to interview and more reliable will be your list.

In the next post you will learn how to deal with the second step.

  1. One of the best ways to build your brand in real estate is to differentiate yourself. As of last year, there were more than 1 million real estate agents holding membership with the National Association of Realtors. That means there are a lot of people to turn to for help when it comes to buying and selling a home or property. How do you stand out?

    Focus on delivering value to the community you are working on without the goal to sell to them something. If you are one of the few realtors out there the really take care to build a better community, start to use your social media to deliver important contents about what’s going on, like new restaurants, schools, day-care facilities……build some forums around these focal points in the community then you become a referral point for people that live in the community and for people that want to move in your community.Just make amazing contents, this is the best way to stand out.
