Helping Our Clients Maximize Revenue
"Closing is only the beginning"
App Coming Soon!
Our condo network helps over 2,500 people everyday to browse local condos. A couple of years ago, we discovered that many of our visitors were using our websites for research; to gather info and pictures for condos. It makes sense. Our condo pages have interactive maps, floor plans, aerial images, property photos, current listings, property details and a variety of additional info. This growing network consists of over 50 condo-specific websites and and numerous sites for larger subdivisions in the area. These websites are all linked and tied in to our social media efforts consisting of hundreds of Facebook pages and YouTube videos.
This creates an easy opportunity for us to advertise our client's condo by simply piggybacking from our sales network. We rank #1 on Google for most condo / real estate searches, so most anyone looking will find our network along with our client's properties. We add pictures and a brief description of our client's property to our network and link to their management company's landing page which has seasonal rates, an availability calendar and booking options.
Setup is quick and easy which allows us to offer this service to our clients at no charge. We also only offer this opportunity to our clients to limit the number of properties in the loop. The benefit of this network is significant and the increase in traffic is noticeable. This is just our way of showing appreciation to those who use the CondoInvestment.Com team at REMAX of Orange Beach to help with their local real estate needs.

TIPS TO INCREASE RENTAL REVENUE & MINIMIZE VACANCY
The best way to keep a condo consistently rented is great online exposure. As we mentioned, most potential vacationers use our sales websites to research local real estate. Because of this, we've added the rental section to our sales network; the response has been phenomenal. We market condos through websites, blogs and social media. Additional research indicated that more and more vacationers are using online, owner-direct rental sites such as VRBO to book their vacations. Noticeably, more vacationing families are also searching for condo rental info using Facebook for reviews and comments on a particular condo or home. We've built individual websites for many local condos in addition to our larger, comprehensive condominium websites. Basically, we have more information online for local condos than anyone else, by far, and it's easy to find, so anyone looking WILL FIND IT.
The graph below indicates the number of daily visits to www.condoinvestment.com in 2014 with additional analytical info including new visitors, duration and more. This graphic is only for www.condoinvestment.com.
STATISTICS FROM THE CONDO NETWORK (2,500 DAILY VIEWS)
We're currently averaging over 1,000 visitors per day to this one site (www.CondoInvestment.com); well over 7,000 visitors per week. Another popular website in the network is www.GulfShoresCondos.com which doubles the traffic. The total for the individual condo-specific websites is another 500 views per day. This constitutes 2,500 views per day, every day, rain or shine. This network helps in the Summer, but really proves its worth in the off season when less people are at the beach and bookings are a little more scarce. We're already receiving countless requests for rental info and the network just went live in 2013.
INCLUSION IS FREE FOR OUR CLIENTS
In an effort to show appreciation and help our clients max their occupancy percentage, we add client properties to the appropriate websites. This service is completely free. Once added to our network and Facebook pages along with pictures, descriptions and testimonials, the system is automated. Contact info is listed and linked directly to the client if they're handling the rentals or to the rental management company's landing page with availability calendars and rates. All inquiries and questions are linked to wherever the owner wants them.

REAL ESTATE SALES BENEFITS (FOR SELLERS)
As for sales, www.CondoInvestment.Com usually ranks #1 when buyers are searching for a condo for sale and use the most common search string. Here's an example. Run a Google search using the following search query - "Phoenix West condos for sale Orange Beach AL". We have the #1 ranking (behind the management company), the #7 ranking and the #9 ranking is our Phoenix West Facebook page. Www.CondoInvestment.com probably ranks in the top 3 organic search results for every condo in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Perdido Key, FL. This was not easy. It took thousands of hours or work and tens of thousands of dollars. Simply put, it's necessary to be effective online in today's business world, so we went all out! This greatly benefits our clients interested in selling because their property will be spread over the web and easy for potential buyers to find. Everyone has a computer, but not every listing agent is a member of our local MLS (Multiple Listing Service) board, and it's very important that your property can easily be found on the internet without the use of the agent's MLS. This sounds simple, but it's surprising how many Realtors list real estate in cities hours away from their business market and just let it sit there. If you own a condo, we invite you to "Google" sales info for your condo. You'll see our websites, social media pages and online marketing campaigns littered all over the first page of the search results, the second page, third page and so on and so forth. (We say "Google" the info because 90% of searches are done using Google as the search engine)

USING FACEBOOK TO INCREASE MEDIA EXPOSURE
You can basically allow families that stay in your condo to use our Facebook page as an online guest book for future families to use when searching for their gulf front vacation condo. The comments would require approval, but Facebook is an easy way for vacationers to learn about your condo and most everyone has Facebook these days. It drastically reduces unnecessary calls and emails and improves conversions. When they contact you, they're already pretty knowledgeable from viewing the pictures and videos on Facebook and our websites. This improves lead quality and booking conversions. This is helping every one make greater use of their time; we're all for that.
