Settlement hamper are a great way to create a buzz and get people talking about your business. They also encourage repeat business and loyalty, as well as simply being a celebration of a significant milestone in a buyer’s or vendor’s life.
However, it's important to make sure that the gifts you give are personal and relevant to the client. Here are some tips on how to nail settlement gifts in real estate, plus information on how Creative Hampers can make the process painless and bulletproof. After you've had a read, make sure you check out our extensive range of settlement gift hampers.
Settlement gifts are like any other gift: they show how appreciative you are. When vendors see that you’ve put extra time and thought into the relationship, they’ll not only remember you, but they’ll be far more likely to do business with you again.
One of the reasons people love receiving gifts is the time and effort that the giver has put into it. When we feel appreciated, relationships are strengthened and loyalty is built.
Referrals are a massive part of a real estate agent’s business. Settlement gifts are a great way to cap off a milestone event in the vendor’s life – selling a house. Next time they hear of someone thinking of selling their home, your name will be at the tip of their tongue.
Reviews are a big part of any business’s success; there’s no consumer alive who doesn’t look at previous experiences when choosing who to work with. Settlement gifts not only generate good will, but they also are a natural motivator for the vendor to get online and speak about their experience.
At the end of the day, selling a house is a momentous occasion and deserves to be celebrated. A settlement gift is a great way of acknowledging the journey the vendor has been through, and also gives them something with which to celebrate what they’ve achieved.
The buyers of today are the vendors of tomorrow. Many people will, at some stage, sell their current house. If they had a positive experience with the agent that helped them with the purchase, then they are likely to seek them out when they look to sell. Settlement gifts help to create that positive experience.
As we’ve already mentioned, referrals are a massive part of an agent’s business. Settlement gifts show your appreciation and dedication to the buyer, and it impresses them that you would go above and beyond to demonstrate this. After such a positive experience, buyers are more than likely to spread the good word among other buyers and vendors whenever the opportunity arises.
