We include the broadest range of exposure options for our clients. We firmly believe that with a strong Product and the right Price then extensive Exposure will ensure the best possible outcome. The goal is to ensure that every buyer that is right for your home finds you. Regardless of whether they are really internet savvy or or more ‘Old School’ – we’ve got you covered!
REALTOR.ca (formerly MLS.ca)* – This service is offered by a licensed broker partner and allows you to have your property show up as a Mere Posting (no commission obligation) on the most popular real estate website in Canada. Your home will be posted to the local Kootenay Real Estate board and will appear side by side with all agent listed homes. If you’re minded to work with agents who may represent buyers you can even establish a commission to encourage them to bring buyers through. As buyers browse certain regions your property will show up with all the others on the map or in specific searches (by price, number of rooms, etc). Since the REALTOR.ca posting can’t include the private sellers contact information, the listing provides clear instructions and a link for buyers to navigate to your main PropertyGuys.com website where they will find all the details and your full contact information.
Facebook & Google Ads – We create ads specifically for your property which are displayed on Facebook and in Google searches. These ads are extremely targeted and very effective at generating additional traffic to your listing. For example for Facebook we can specify that your Ad appears for Facebook users who live in your community plus anyone who lives elsewhere (Calgary, Lethbridge, Fort McMurray, Australia, Germany, etc.) that has ‘liked’ or has an interest in local things. eg. Kimberley Alpine Resort, Fernie Alpine Resort, Panorama Mountain Village, Kootenay Ice, etc. Talk about getting directly in front of the people you want!
Google Searches are similarly targeted. Your property specific ad can come out right on the top of the search results for some powerful search terms. i.e. Windermere Real Estate, Cranbrook Homes for Sale, Sparwood Modular Home, etc. Our Facebook & Google Ads service runs for 30 days and can be re-purchased in additional 30 day increments.

Local Print Advertising – We’ll advertise your property in the most appropriate print publications for your area. The publications are well read by East Kootenay and Croswnest Pass residents as well as regular visitors to the region who may be shopping for a 2nd home or planning to relocate. We ensure your property appears more frequently at the beginning of your listing or after a price drop while reducing the frequency as time goes on or during the slower Winter months. We can even promote an open house you have coming up. Click for Examples below.

Just Listed Postcards – Be sure to promote your property for sale to your neighbours and other ‘locals’. It’s not uncommon for those living in your local community (who may not necessarily be actively looking to move) to become interested buyers when they realize a property in a desired area has come onto the market. Not to mention the fact that ‘locals’ often have family and friends who may be looking to move to the area. With this turn-key service we’ll produce and mail out 500 full colour double-sided postcards of your property to residences close to your property. The postcards include multiple photos, property highlights and a link to your specific property listing where the reader can get more information. You can never get too much local exposure as the word of mouth impact can be significant! Click on Sample Postcard below.
USA Web - With over 300 Million people living just South of our border, the US represents a huge potential market for Kootenay property sellers.
