“Location. Location. Location.” – Details Make the Difference!

We all know the age old saying “Location. Location. Location.” Are you promoting all the location benefits of your Homes or Community in your ads?

Know Your Location Benefits

“Promote your location benefits” means telling potential buyers or residents all about your area. Keep in mind, a large percentage of the buyers on MHVillage are from out of state, so they may not be as familiar with your area. Of course you want people to know about home features and community amenities, but don’t forget to include information about the local area too!

For instance, if your community is in a great school system, that can appeal to families. If your community or home is located near a popular urban city or a shopping center, or even popular restaurants and bars, those can be valuable features to a home buyer who wants to be social and on the scene. Access to bus lines can also be important

 

And don’t forget about those retirees looking for a nice quite place to call home!  

 


If your community or home has access to a beautiful body of water, or is a short distance from a relaxing park or hiking trail, you’ll want to be sure and include that information too. Even if you aren’t an “age qualified” community – you just might have the perfect home for a home buyer looking to retire. All of these details give the buyer a better idea of what their day to day would look like, which might be the little extra nudge they need to give you a call!

 

How to Advertise Your Location Benefits

MHVillage has Description sections for both home listings and communities. (Sales centers too, but that’s for another article all together!) This is the perfect place to tell people the wonderful features of your area. There is no word limit and home buyers on the site really do read them. The more information you provide, the easier it is for a buyer to sell themselves right from your online ad!

As always we are here to help, so if you would like to have one of our account reps review your home or community ads for you, just give us a call or email and we can set up a time to go through it all!

Check Your Statistics on MHVillage at Any Time

Monitoring your leads and other vital information is the perfect way to ensure you are advertising your home, company or community at the level that will provide the most exposure to our consumers.

Within your account we offer a few different ways for you to see how your ads are performing on our site.

If you are a professional, you can log into your account and from your account page, select the “Account Statistics” option to see the overview of all of your stats, and then break them down by advertisement type (Listings, Sales Center, Community).

 

Both professionals and individuals can see the statistics for a specific home in their account by choosing the “Edit Listing” or the “View/Change Listing” option from the account page, then to the right of the home of interest click the “Statistics” option.

When looking at the graph it’s important to note the Views and the Searches.

The view count will tell you how many page views your ad received and the search count will tell you how many searches your ad appeared in. By reviewing both you can get a feel for how many consumers in your area are searching, and then how many of them chose your ad.

It’s also important to note that when we count your page views we do not count when you are looking at your ads and we also only count each customer one time per day.

Thank you for using MHVillage, if you have any additional questions please let us know!
