One day, I will own a really nice house on a large spread of land. Right now though, I need to keep my sights on something that is more affordable to me as I work my way up the corporate ladder. That is why I wanted to find an executive condo in Singapore, because I knew that it was something I would be able to afford.

Commercial Real Estate Agents – Pre Listing Kits to Win New Business

When it comes to selling or leasing commercial or retail real estate, you can use a pre-listing kit to great effect. The strategy of providing a pre-listing kit is to show the client that you really are agents that know how to solve local property problems and that you have done just that for plenty of other people.

The structure of the kit will vary with the property type and the location, but the contents will generally include some or all of the following:

  1. You will need to put your personal profile at the front of the kit so the client knows something about you and your local successes with office, industrial, or retail property.
  2. Provide some information about your local real estate office and the history of the business. The key here is to show that you really do know your local area and have been a part of successful property transactions for some time. Read the rest of this entry »
