Hello, with condos you can put inexpensive classified ads in the local newspapers, do a mailout to the neighborhood and the condo complex in case anyone wants to upgrade or downsize or know someone that wants to move in the complex (only mail if the zip code is not restricted), do attractive flyers and give them out to individuals and businesses. It's all very iinexpensive and effective. Hope I helped you a little

http://www.vflyer.com is a great site...you create a flyer using their templates, then publish it to the web. It syndicates to several sites, plus you can copy and paste the widget to craigslist and backpage. ALL FOR FREE!!!! I love FREE...especially these days!

Condo specialists are encouraged to contact me. I am posting a directory of condo specialists around the country at CondoBenefits.com. The site has a few articles about the benefits of owning a condo. (If you have an article let me know and I'll link to you in the by-line.) It's free and easy. You can contact me at http://www.condo1alexandria.com/contact.asp

Actually, MySpace has a new, decent listing service that is free. In addition, Craigslist, as mentioned, is a good one. If you're looking for a complete site solution, you can try Innovign services. They offer a great deal on websites for real estate agents. Good luck!!

Amanda: What is the basic information on the condo? What type of area is it in? What are some unique factors? If we could get some of this information, we may be able to go beyond the websites and get more local "advertising" going for you. Keep in mind, marketing in real estate goes miles beyond advertising. Most of the marketing is controlled by your seller the day/night they list the home and agree upon a successful, thoughtful PRICE.

All good answers and I will borrow them! :) I think one cost effective, and business expanding way to market any piece of property is though people first, and THEIR web services. Condo price points would lead me to investigate web sites and lists of renters in the area. Then I would deliver a brochure in hand with mortgage information and programs on back, (complying with local adverising rules and law), tie in with a lender who will cost share marketing for you (many will pay for the brochures entirely), gathering the data from them with mortgage info on back, and attach a business card. If you have access to renter e-mails, or can get some while you are prospecting, have a preset, polished e-presentation of the property to send to them as follow up. This not only markets the property affordably, but builds your client database and future business. It takes some sweat equity, yes. But why change the wheel? People first, business second! In the long run, it never fails.
