We’ve got our first cover! We’re quite excited about having the cover of Southern Home Market magazine. I personally did the layout to ensure its going to be a great issue. It’s a great prowl front chalet home that is great! I look forward to posting the image of the cover when it comes out.
I’ll use this opportunity to explain the difference between many of the magazines in our area. We have currently two real estate magazines in the Murphy NC area: Southern Home Market and Homes for Sale in the Mountains. Homes and Land will also be reintroduced to our area. I’ll be advertising a full page in their first issue to test their effectiveness.
Homes for Sale in the Mountains is a larger, more expensive magazine. I advertised in it for 2006 and sold only one house from it. Sellers – it’s gone. It doesn’t bring enough focus to your property to keep it. Not only that, it’s much larger and I feel that because of that, your property gets “lost” in all the others. It has too many strikes against it to be an effective advertising strategy for your house or land.
Southern Home Market is the current real estate magazine I advertise. They are far more flexible, less expensive, get more calls, and is not so large to where your property is lost. Because of the increased interest in your property, it has been the hands down best choice.
Even though print exposure is important, it’s far from the most important thing. Want to learn more about what to do for your home in Murphy, North Carolina to make it more appealing to a buyer? Email or call us and we’ll be happy to share our marketing plan.
