Riviera Property Network (RPN) has announced the introduction of a new service for home owners throughout the French Riviera. Property Marketing Solutions has been created to give control of the representation of home owners’ properties. Comprising specially-produced bespoke marketing materials, Property Marketing Solutions is the most effective way to promote the sale of your home to an international market.
Chris Maughan, CEO, RPN, said, “We identified that many home owners are unsure as to which agent should oversee the sale of their property; people don’t want to spend time preparing with several agents or are hesitant to sign an exclusive mandate to get the best service from one real estate agent” Maughan continues, “RPN’s new marketing solution alleviates all that hassle and gives control of the marketing to the home owners whilst being able to reach a multitude of real estate agents in the region and across the globe”.
Market trends reinforce that sentiment, demonstrating that more and more home owners are choosing to try and sell their home via self-produced websites. But is a website enough to reach your potential buyer? The world is not waiting for another website so how do you effectively stand out from the crowd? In today’s world of the internet, to build a semi decent SEO takes time and is an indefinite cost. Usually for search engines to ‘trust’ a website takes about a year, so is this really an effective sole solution?
RPN thinks not. One of the unique aspects of Property Marketing Solutions is that there is no predetermined package. Each solution is custom-made to suit the individual, budget and property. RPN will come to your house, host a discovery meeting and actually unearth what you want and what needs to be done. A recommendation is then compiled based on your time frame, value of the property, location of the potential buyers so the home owners have a fixed cost against a set of deliverables. Moreover they have full approval over all material produced by RPN before it is sent out to RPN’s network.
Maughan affirms, “RPN doesn’t sell houses, real agents do. RPN markets properties. We marry home owners through our extensive network of over 1500 real estate agents throughout the region and over 160 international search agents worldwide to countries such as China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Moscow, USA, United Kingdom and northern Europe”, continuing further, “RPN believes that the benefits of each property has to be discovered and promoted. It’s not just about stats and figures. To represent a house properly you have to really understand the features and only those that have lived in a property can share this with you.”
RPN’s new Property Marketing Solutions in essence juxtaposes the creativity of a professional advertising agency with experience and expertise of a real estate agent. Through the introduction of this new service, RPN intends to bring a new level of professionalism and approach to how properties are marketed on the French Riviera.
Emma Jones, Sales & Marketing Director, RPN adds, “Property Marketing Solutions is not just about gathering stats, taking photographs and measuring rooms. RPN delivers creative solutions based on information with a recommended strategy on where to reach potential buyers whether it be through the RPN network or placing advertisements in international luxury publications to reach expats who live overseas”, Jones continues, “Through my experience working with leading developments in Dubai and the Middle East, I’ve learnt that property is about emotion. RPN intends to create a story about each property to sell the dream in a professional, well-thought through, structured manner. We need to remind the world about the lifestyle element of the Cote d’Azur. There are so many places globally that offer a quality lifestyle in the sun, but France offers a securer marketplace for investment. We just need to reach the right people and RPN has the network and skill set to achieve this. We need the buyers to fall in love with our properties and our region again”.
