Help-U-Sell Real Estate Featured in Investing Publication

Investing in Real Estate publication
John Powell of Help-U-Sell Galleria Realty was interviewed for the Investing in Real Estate publication.

Help-U-Sell Real Estate is featured in a new publication called “Investing in Real Estate.” Produced as an independent supplement to USA Today, it was distributed in select markets, including Phoenix, the Carolinas, Los Angeles and DC/Baltimore.

Help-U-Sell Galleria Realty‘s John Powell offered advice for investors who are looking for a representative in the article titled “Game of Homes: Finding Your Agent.” One of Powell’s pieces of wisdom: “Remember that your Realtor’s market knowledge affects whether or not you make a good investment.”

We also have an advertisement in the publication that promotes Market Sketch, our new real-time, local data tool.

New Help-U-Mail Program from Excel Printing & Mailing

Starting Jan. 31, our friends at Excel Printing & Mailing will officially launch a new program just for us. Called Help-U-Mail, it is more cost-effective than door hangers, and the bulk of the work is done for you.

Excel will work with you to customize your 8.5” x 11” mailer and place their bulk rate postage permit on each one. You pay for the printing up-front and pay for the postage only when you mail out the flyers. You will be required to mail to at least one full carrier route each time you send the flyers, but you can choose to order as many flyers as you like ahead of time and mail them out in batches. After you take them to the post office, the flyers should be in mailboxes within two business days.

If you order 10,000, the cost will be $0.11 each for printing. If you order fewer, the cost per piece will increase. The postage per piece will be $0.142. However, Mike Paholke of Excel told us today to expect an “aggressive offer” on the launch date, so look for even lower pricing then.

John Powell of Help-U-Sell Galleria Realty and Craig Flint of Help-U-Sell Flint Realty have tested the program already. Powell is planning not to mail out half of his 10,000 order but to insert them into a local newspaper instead. You can see Flint’s flyer below. He has mailed out 9,000 so far and garnered several calls and a few likely listings.

It’s a whole new company: Help-U-Sell®

By Tamara Patzer, Communications Resource

Coaching in at the top of Help-U-Sell’s “to do” list for 2010.
