The Quick $5 Solution To Get Beautiful Real Estate Brochure Templates That Rock
Are you looking for a quick real estate brochure template or sample that will upgrade your business now? Here are examples of ways to stand out!
A well-designed real estate brochure is one way to really make your listing consistently stand out.
Yet, did you know Amazon.com has more strict standards for photography than almost any MLS does? That means products on Amazon often look WAY better than most listings. It’s just not good to have a terrible looking real estate brochure or photos in the MLS.
The fact that there are still badly designed real estate brochures out there gives you a really large opening as a Realtor. With just a small ($5-10) investment in design, you can have seriously good real estate brochures, logos, and photography.
These apparently small items might not seem to drive more leads. But they can have a big impact on your business. You can use them in your listing presentation and on your real estate websites. And they will help you close more seller leads.
After all, Amazon products with more than 7 photos typically see 300% boost in sales.
So, are you ready to learn quick and easy ways to make better real estate brochures and to reap the benefits of investing a little bit in design?
Let’s get into it:
So, there are two routes to make your real estate brochure stellar.
Option one: Have a local designer make you template to use for your listings and buyers. Typical cost: $250-500
Option two: Use a pre-designed template and have it customized through an outsourcing website: Typical cost: $5-15
Obviously, option two is a lot more cost effective. And in my experience can yield better design results.
But the first thing you’ll need is a real estate brochure template that matches your brand. I’m going to outline 7 options for you when it comes to finding a template. Then, we’ll talk about places to get this templates altered with your branding.
Use these to upgrade the look of your brand now:
Now that you have some professional design ideas (or have purchased one of those templates) you need to customize it.
There are a few options for customizing your brochure.
You can get some decent graphic work done on Fiverr for rather low prices.
Here’s how it works:
You’ll want to login and create a profile.
Next, search for brochures:
You’ll be able to find various gigs that will take your template you found above and customize it.
You might need them to make it easy for you to change text out. If you want this, make sure they send over a PDF version for you to easily edit. Or make sure they’ll be around to edit text for you.
These two computer programs are a bit intense, but you could try editing textual elements yourself if you have a copy of the program.
You are sure to find some college students on Craigslist looking for design work. They will already know Illustrator and Photoshop. And will definitely be able to get your template edited for you.
To find people on Craigslist, simply post a job in the art / media / design category.
You should pay anywhere from $10-20 per hour for this type of work. It will probably take 2-4 hours to customize a template and can take a lot more time than that if you are looking to have them do heavy design work.
Once you have the design process competed for your real estate brochure, it’s time to print it.
While there are decent office printers, I highly recommend you spring for a glossy finish to your print out.
Think about it:
When’s the last time a car dealership sent out a promotional brochure that wasn’t printed on glossy paper?
And it’s actually not that expensive to use this upgrade. You can easily find unconventional printers like Walgreens and Walmart running inexpensive specials through their photo department.
Here’s a good process I use:
You can either upload your file as a print or a poster. And get versions of it printed out on high quality paper for under $.50 per copy. This is an incredibly cheap and fast way to get your real estate brochure printed.
You can create a template via your real estate virtual assistant, Fiverr, or Craigslist. Then edit the template with your newest listings details. Finally, head over to the local photo department and get your design printed.
These services give you higher quality printing that the “at home or office” variety. And really help you stand out!
Are you going to get a facelift on your real estate brochure? I highly recommend it! If you don’t have time to do it now, be sure to add an event to your calendar for the slow winter season. That way you can work on making your business better when you’re less busy.
