Print Management In Estate Agents

Printing property particulars is a part of every good estate agent’s marketing life. Property particulars – including brochures, leaflets and floor plans – are a key part of getting potential buyers interested in one of your properties. While most people will search an estate agent’s online portfolio, a website can only go so far, and you still need something to hand prospective buyers when they leave the property.

There is no denying that emotion plays a big role in choosing a property to buy or rent. The property brochures you provide play a key part in persuading a prospective buyer to view, or even go ahead on a property. They prompt the buyer to take their next step from initial interest to viewing, and then from viewing to buying. When trying to decide between several properties, those brochures are all your customers have to remember and judge your properties on. The quality of your property collateral could be the difference between simply liking the look of a property to deciding to book a viewing, so they need to be perfect.

Managing Your Print Requirements

The world of an estate agent can move very quickly, with some properties staying on the market for months and others disappearing within days, or even hours. So predicting how many property particulars and copies of sales collateral, flyers and other documents will be required for each property can be an impossible task.  Sending these things to external printers can be time-consuming and expensive, and most estate agents will find themselves with a lot of extras left over once the property sells. That’s why so many estate agents are switching to in-house brochure printing. By investing in a high-quality printer and maintenance package, estate agents can take complete control of their printed materials. From implementing automated workflows (so when a viewing is booked in, a brochure is automatically printed, saving time) to printing one off signage and brochures on demand or large reports that need to be collated and bound (which your printer could do to), Archway can help you take control, save money and save time producing high quality printed materials.
