Professional High-Definition Photography
HD photographs are the key to any successful marketing plan and that’s why Bijan leaves no expense spared when it comes to bringing out all the vivid colours and details in every corner of your lovely home! A professional photographer will come in and take jaw-dropping high resolution photographs of your home for both online and print marketing.
2D & 3D Floor Plans
Let’s face it. The layout and floor plan of a home are one of the defining features whether it’s a large home or a small bungalow. That’s why every one of Bijan’s listings comes with a detailed floor plan to help buyers visualize the living space in your home even before they step through the front door! This also helps in ensuring both buyers and yourself have the most accurate information on the size of your home!
Market Analysis and Neighbourhood Sales Trends
The real estate market with its demand and supply factors, is constantly changing. In order to get top-dollar when selling an asset such as a home timing can be everything, which is why you need a professional who can accurately assess the current market. With a background in Economics and Urban Planning, Bijan provides the up-to-date information you need to know on the real estate market in your local area when selling your home.
Canadian Real Estate Investment Centre in Shanghai
Western Canada has seen a surge in Chinese real estate investment in the last 5 years, a trend that is expected to continue. Our office in Shanghai’s Jing’an district promotes our listings to potential home-buyers through Chinese real estate expos and conferences. This also includes translation of all of Bijan’s listings to Mandarin & Cantonese and advertised on Chinese media portals such as Baidu, Weibo and QQ and Juwai.com. Our Macrealty.cn real estate website is the only Canada-focused real estate website behind the Great Firewall in China!
Social Media & Print Marketing
No marketing plan is complete without an advertising plan, both online and print! More and more people are on social media websites these days, which has made it an invaluable advertising platform for showcasing your property to the widest pool of buyers! Imagine picking up a copy of The Vancouver Sun in Downtown Vancouver and seeing your home in the paper! The Vancouver Sun features a dedicated page to Macdonald Realty listings on select editions, giving you the opportunity to have your home advertised in the iconic Vancouver newspaper everyone knows about!
We know you’re different, that’s why our Luxury Homes Collection is the perfect place to showcase your beautiful luxury property in British Columbia to the rest of the affluent buyers in the world!
