Personalized flash drives can give real estate agents an edge to beat the competition. Learn how you can utilize them for your business by reading the article below.
How Real Estate Agents Use Personalized Flash Drives
Going Paperless Using Wallet USB Cards
The overwhelming paperwork involved in a typical reality transaction has called for the need to find innovative strategies to escape the clutter of paper. Typical buying or selling of a property involves:
- Open house packets
- Public and/or private real estate listings
- Closing documents
Now, with the ever reducing prices of custom branded USB drives, it has become feasible to replace much of this paperwork with Wallet USB Cards.
What Personalized Flash Drives Can Do For Real Estate Agents
These personalized flash drives can be very effective for communication purposes, rallying the relevant information to prospects or clients conveniently by storing that information and needed data on them. Furthermore, they can be effective promotional items and marketing tools, with aesthetically appealing custom branding on the flash drives. Realtors can be sure to stand out from the competition by using such custom branded USB drives.
Imagine yourself as an interested homebuyer. You approach many realtors and they are all very eager to help you out. They provide multi-page booklets with details of existing listings that meet your criteria. But one realtor presents a USB Business Card with their branding and all relevant listing details, including multimedia such as video, 3D views, layouts, and slideshows preloaded on some personalized thumb drives. Such as the kind shown below:
Even after going through the listing details, as a token of appreciation, this realtor informs you that you can delete the content on the USB Business Card and use it as your own personal USB drive. This realtor will make a lasting impact on you and will have definitely stood out compared to the competition. If I were the homebuyer, I would choose this realtor to assist me in the home buying process!
How Personalized Flash Drives Provide Relevant Ads To Your Target Clients
The promotional USB Cards can hold any kind of data, so that increases the versatility and therefore, the ability to sell a property. Files that some of our existing realtor clients preload on the USB drives vary, but often include:
- Contact information (usually printed on the outside of the card USB)
- Information of various properties meeting the criteria of a prospect. For this the use of the following multimedia is often employed:
- Videos of the inside and outside of the properties
- 3D views with the ability to “walk-through” the properties
- Appealing slideshows with elegant music in the background
- Google Maps app that allows people to see details such as walk-score, transit score, neighborhood features, schools, parks etc.
- Appealing charts which show important details such as crime rate, average neighborhood income, renters in the neighborhood vs. homeowners, households with children, average age, etc.
- Details of mortgage loans and methods to get pre-approved
- How to get inspections done before purchasing the property
- Instructions for making a formal offer
The opportunities are limitless.
Better Advertising Experience And Customer Service
Many real estate agents choose to distribute such promotional USB drives at first when they meet a prospective home buyer while others choose to distribute them at an open house. Offering them to their client at the showing will leave the other potential buyers represented by different agents envious! They will feel they should have chosen the realtor who offered the card-shaped flash drive and their agents will wish they had thought of this before!
