Patterson-Schwartz: Enhancing the Home Valuation Experience

Keeping pace with an ever-evolving local market is important, but finding reliable information can be a challenge. Patterson-Schwartz understands this challenge and is pleased to announce a new partnership with CloudCMA and Homebeat, leaders in the home valuation tool industry.   

What is a CMA?

A Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is the term real estate professionals use when they conduct an in-depth analysis of a home’s current worth based on the prices of similar active, pending, and sold properties in the area. Real estate professionals present a CMA to their clients to help them determine a price when listing a home or making an offer to buy a home. 

CloudCMA provides our sales associates with the real-time data and innovative tools necessary to guide clients through crucial price-related decisions. When it comes time to list your home for sale, you can depend on our sales associates to provide the very best CMA reporting and personalize it to you.  In the meantime, how can you stay informed on the market and begin to understand the true value of your home?  

A local real estate expert is your best resource  

A flood of websites out there promise an instant value for your home, but, in reality, they are rarely accurate. There are so many factors that contribute to a property’s value that these online models overlook, including the property’s condition. Only a licensed real estate professional familiar with your area can give you a true idea of what your home is worth. In that regard, you should avoid relying solely on a website to determine your home’s value, but understanding local housing trends is a great place to start.

On the fence about selling? Try Homebeat! 

Homebeat through Patterson-Schwartz allows you to regularly check the sales activity of the homes around yours. As a Homebeat subscriber, updates about your neighborhood’s housing trends are emailed to you at the frequency of your choice.

The knowledge and personal care of our local experts paired with the innovative reporting data from CloudCMA will help you list your home with confidence in any market.

Patterson-Schwartz launches Adwerx Motion ads

It is no secret that today’s consumers often begin their search for a home online. And now more than ever, a robust and effective online strategy is vital for connecting with home buyers. At Patterson-Schwartz, we employ a vast array of online marketing efforts to increase our listings’ exposure, and we’re excited to announce a new animated format from our digital ad partner, Adwerx Enterprise.

Enhancing the digital experience

In 2018 Patterson-Schwartz began a partnership with Adwerx Enterprise, an industry leader in digital advertising automation. With the Adwerx platform, digital ads for new Patterson-Schwartz listings launch when a property is publicly listed during the all-important first week that a home hits the market and receives the most attention. Combined with sophisticated retargeting technology, these ads follow local home buyers around the web and appear on popular websites such as ESPN and the New York Times and social media sites like Facebook and Instagram.

“Patterson-Schwartz focuses on using superior tools to market their listings, and we have helped them engage online buyers and cost-effectively advertise on websites alongside big brands,” says Nathan Kainz, Enterprise Account Management, Team Lead at Adwerx. “But we know the real estate industry is competitive and are always looking to enhance the ability to grab the attention of consumers.”

An innovative partnership

Developed to stand out in the digital environment, Adwerx Motion combines the effectiveness of targeting listing ads with the power of motion to create content that reaches more prospective buyers and increases the visibility of each listing. This new feature allows display advertising to be animated using HTML5 technology – an ad type proven to drive higher engagement and improved click-through rates.

“When we were approached by our account representative to be one of the first brokers to launch Adwerx Motion ads, we didn’t hesitate to jump on board.

“The ability to upgrade our automated listing campaigns to an animated design creates another opportunity for our agents to impress their sellers and win the listing presentation. Adwerx consistently enables us to provide value to our agents and their clients by helping their listings stand out in a highly competitive environment.”

Smarter Open Houses with Spacio & Patterson-Schwartz

Patterson-Schwartz is pleased to announce paperless open house registration through the Spacio app! This new, digital process provides a smarter experience for open house visitors and Patterson-Schwartz agents. Registrant information is gathered instantly and more accurately than the manual sign-in process, while automated follow-up ensures the interest in the open house never loses its momentum.

“Spacio enables agents to efficiently and seamlessly connect with potential buyers long after the doors to the open house close. Digitally collecting visitor data also eliminates paperwork and the use of QR code technology provides a touchless aspect. The experience is better, greener, and safer for all involved.”

Justin Kierstead, Director of Marketing at Patterson-Schwartz

Maximizing the open house opportunity

While the pandemic put restrictions on traditional open house activity in 2020, the local real estate market is experiencing a return to interest in in-person tours of homes in 2021. According to the National Association of REALTORS, open houses continue to be a frequently used source in the home search process among buyers.

The partnership with Spacio allows Patterson-Schwartz agents to make the most of the open house opportunity. The app is easily accessible via web and mobile devices and integrates with many agents’ lead capture and follow-up tools.

The app’s top features also make it a great piece of technology for today’s fast-paced and safety-minded market.

Each open house event generates its unique URL or QR code, which, when shared with visitors, allows for touchless sign-in on individual devices. These URLs and QR codes can also be shared in advance and save time through pre-registration. And as soon as the open house closes, registrants receive automated follow-up information and can connect with the agent at the click of a button.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer this app to our agents,” says Patterson-Schwartz Senior Vice President, Business Development & Corporate Strategist, and Greenville Sales Manager, Donna Greenspan. “Open houses have long been a mainstay to real estate sales, and we love introducing new technology into the experience without sacrificing the personal touch.”
