The main way that we use the Residex property report is as part of a client review package that we prepare for our clients. This is sent out around the anniversary of the first loan that settled through us and is then followed through with a phone call 1 - 2 weeks later to touch base. The package is an impressive bound document that includes a Residex report for each property that they have financed through us, information on the loans that they have in place and other information and can end up being up to 25 - 30 pages long.
I currently offer the property report gift voucher as a giveaway at events for example at local sports clubs as a raffle prize. I also use the gift vouchers with my seminars to entice people to return the name badges I provide.
I have several methods in promoting this additional service:
- complimentary property report gift vouchers
- placing an ad in my newsletter
- promoting it as part of my sales kit for each new prospect.
The reports are now a sales tool for me. I am permitted to provide property advice being a Chartered Accountant. The reports enable me to diversify my service offering and complement both sides of my business. I have marketed the reports through my newsletter and letterbox drop. I offer this service to my existing clients who are thinking of selling and I also use it to attract new clients who are interested in purchasing a property.
