by Gail Oliver, Online Marketing Consultant

Looking for some creative real estate marketing ideas? Below are 10 of my guerilla-style, out-of-the-box marketing ideas to inspire you from my very popular, downloadable ebook, Real Estate Marketing Ideas for Realtors.


10 Real Estate Marketing Ideas

1. Change Up Your Open Houses

Instead of having open houses on weekends, have them in the evening during the week so that people can stop in on their way home.

2. Make Sure Your Real Estate Signs Get Seen

Put a solar light on the “for sale” sign (no extension cords needed) so it is visible at night to passer-bys.

3. Target First Time Home Buyers

Post flyers of affordable homes under $150,000 in the lobbies of apartment buildings to lure renters into becoming home owners.

4. Eliminate Distractions at Open Houses

Arrange to have a teenager in the neighbourhood watch prospective buyers’ children during an open house so they are not distracted as you are trying to sell to them.

5. Get Free Press for Your Listings

Ask your local community newspaper if you can have a weekly feature called, “Hot Listing of the Week”, if not in the paper itself on their social media pages.

6. Find New Clients on Instagram

Have a contest on Instagram for people to post their photos with the hash tag #MyHouseNeedsHelp. The winner gets free design advice and you have a slew of potential new clients who are dissatisfied with their current home.

7. Target People Who Are Relocating

Make alliances with human resource directors of major companies in your town that tend to bring in new hires from other cities and ask to be part of their relocation kit.

8. Widen Exposure with Family & Friends

Turn your business card into a fridge magnet and ask friends and family to not only put it on their home fridge, but also on their fridge in the lunchroom at their place of work.

9. Ramp Up Your Listings

Make your home listings are little more detailed, such as including a floor plan of each level; indicate which walls are not load bearing (for those fixer uppers); list the age of the electrical, plumbing, roof and furnace; detail average monthly utility costs.

10. Realtor Gifts for Clients

Make your gift to the new home owner outdoor garbage or recycling bins labeled with your business name and contact info. Free advertising for you every week to everyone in the neighbourhood!
