House of the week Revisited
Last Saturday’s House of the Week – a stunning sky home atop the Realm apartment complex, proved a hit with buyers, selling agent Marina Ormsby of Fox Real Estate says, with inquiries coming from far and wide.
“We got an excellent response,” Mrs Ormsby says. “A lot of the inquiry was from local buyers who were very interested to know something like this existed in Adelaide. We’ve probably taken about a dozen people through. I’ve had 26 email inquiries from people and by Tuesday it had received just under 4000 hits online.
“I didn’t expect as much local inquiry, but I think the spread and the presence in the paper certainly captured people’s attention. We’ve shown through retirees, downsizers and a couple of double-income-no-kids buyers. The sellers are very happy and think it’s a great start to their campaign. We advertised this one in print because I feel strongly about its reach in this city. Being a one-paper city, there are a lot of people who still use it as their primary source of property information. The Real Estate magazine is also a great way of reaching passive buyers – those that aren’t actively looking online – and we see these people transacting all the time.”
