How to Market Your Property

“We use marketing know-how when we help someone sell or rent out a property,” explains our Puerto Vallarta-based real estate writer.

Proven methods to attract more buyers and renters to your property include:

Blog. We find distinctive properties and write about them. There’s no better way to attract buyers than an interesting series of articles to the right audience.

SEO, SMM, backlinks. Keywords, posts on Craigslist, Facebook, and OldVallarta.com to name just a fraction. (see below for details)

Multi-Listing Service (MLS) and traditional marketing such as color flyers of your property. (see below for details)

Our marketing approach gives owners an advantage. “I think there are agents who just sell,” Rick explains. “I don’t sell. For me, it is my job to market in order to attract qualified buyers to my client’s property, to buy it.”

That means listening to what owners tell us, and, based on that, offering options they may not have considered.

“I had an owner who wanted to get the best price but he was frustrated with results so far. Then, I evaluated the situation, and the owner became much more animated.”

“This is really terrific,” Rick said. “It was obvious he could get the price he was looking for, but had to properly market the property,” he says.
