Helping Our Clients Maximize Revenue
"Closing is only the beginning"
App Coming Soon!
Like the discovery of Velcro and Teflon, our supplemental rental network was found by mistake. Circa 2014 we discovered that many of our 3,000 - 4,000 daily visitors is using our websites for vacation research. It makes sense. Our condo pages have interactive maps, floor plans, aerial images & videos, property details and more. The social media spreads things out and the result in a lot of targeted traffic. Why not use it, right?
This creates an opportunity for us to easily advertise our client's rental condo using this vast network. We rank #1 on Google for most all condo sales searches. That's a LOT of traffic. We add pictures and a brief description to the proper pages, link to the client's online landing page and let the availability calendar booking software do the work. Setup is very easy, efficient and completely automated.
This is FREE to our clients and just our way of showing appreciation to those who use our team to help with their Gulf Coast condo needs.
TIPS TO INCREASE RENTAL REVENUE & MINIMIZE VACANCY
The best way to keep a condo booked is great online exposure. Social media and smart phones have permanently changed things. Because of this, all of our sites and pages are mobile-compatible and heavily integrated with our social network. We've created Facebook pages for most all of the gulf front condos from Gulf Shores, AL to Destin, FL. The condos that were left out are mostly rent-restricted condos that wouldn't benefit from rental exposure. These FB condo pages have been collecting "likes" and "check-ins" for years and when we post a new rental listing or sales listing, all of those people can see the post. This is about as targeted as marketing can get. The response has been phenomenal and we've actually spent a lot of time bolstering this FB condo network. Noticeably, more vacationing families are also using Facebook for reviews and comments on a particular condo. Basically, we have more information available for Gulf Coast condos than anyone else in our area and its use is mutually beneficial. The aerial videos we've been using have also contributed to the growth and are being shared all over.

STATISTICS FROM THE CONDO NETWORK (OVER 3,000 DAILY VIEWS)
We're currently averaging over 1,000 visitors per day to this one site (www.CondoInvestment.com); well over 20,000 visitors per week. 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. Please contact us with questions concerning our condo network.
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.

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.
