#ShopSmall, Save Big – Michigan Real Estate

Get ready to shop ‘small’ and save big in the Michigan real estate market this weekend!

#ShopSmall is the official hash tag for Small Business Saturday, which arrives this weekend. Sandwiched in between Black Friday and Cyber Monday this day makes up one of the most beneficial and meaningful.

It’s a great time to support the incredible Michigan entrepreneurial movement and support local small businesses, as well as scooping up great bargains on everything from loans to homes.

Experts predict this will be a $5 billion sales weekend. Hopefully much of that revenue will go to local small businesses which are largely responsible for job growth and boosting the local economy.

By ‘shopping small’ at local businesses it helps all locals and the real estate market. It can also mean big discounts too, and encourages more Michigan entrepreneurship.

Shopping small can also mean small price tags on big items, and there are many of these opportunities in the Southeast Michigan property market. Regional house prices are reportedly up 17% year over year, but there are still many deal among REOs, foreclosures and other distressed properties. Look to local real estate industry professionals for deals on their services and the best expert knowledge and service.

It’s a great weekend for Michigan real estate professionals to save big by shopping small business too. Fox Business suggests there are still some items which may be offered on better terms later in the season like tablets, DSLR cameras, brand name HDTVs, toys and Christmas decorations.

However, many will find deals on real estate marketing bundles, educational packages, events, books, subscriptions, office supplies and other essential business items.

Real Estate Marketing: Are Your Cyber Monday Deals Ready To Roll?

Are you ready to rock with your Cyber Monday real estate marketing campaigns?

With only days to go and plenty of distractions in between, Cyber Monday is coming up fast. For those in the real estate industry this is perhaps the most important marketing day of the year.

Regardless of whether you are still wrangling with Halloween decorations and marketing initiatives, conjuring up menus for Thanksgiving or already planning your December holiday shopping, Cyber Monday cannot afford to be ignored.

Cyber Monday is rapidly becoming the biggest sales day of the year, and we could be on track for a $2 billion sales day for Cyber Monday 2013.

Based upon trends in holiday marketing and going off last year businesses need to be rolling out campaigns almost a month early. This is the perfect occasion for moving more real estate and can be equally prosperous for mortgage brokers, lenders, Realtors, home improvement contractors and real estate investors as well.

The great news is that banking on this occasion is incredibly easy for the real estate crowd thanks to online deals and keyword rich content for capitalizing on surges in web traffic.

This should also be tied in with Black Friday for banking on increased foot and car traffic for open houses, as well as Small Business Saturday which is sandwiched in the middle.  Small Business Saturday is the ideal opportunity to call locals and past customers to support you and to collaborate with other local small business owners.

The time to start planning and developing marketing materials is now. Done right this should be the best weekend of your year, and could earn you the rest of the year off, with plenty of holiday shopping money too!
