Marketing of Luxury Homes Enhanced


Post

 

Ebby Halliday Realtors is enhancing its marketing of the Luxury Portfolio International brand. Luxury Portfolio is the luxury property marketing division of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, the largest global network of premier local independent real estate companies. Ebby Halliday is a founding member of the invitation-only network, which produces more annual home sales than any other real estate network.

 

“We are proud to be a founding member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and to offer our clients both sophisticated in-house marketing and the benefits of Luxury Portfolio International’s worldwide reach,” says Randall Graham, vice president and director of marketing for Ebby Halliday Realtors.

 

Ebby Halliday Realtors places luxury listings in front of prospective buyers with premium placement in such publications as FD Luxe; Patron magazine; and in the OnStage playbill distributed to patrons of the AT&T Performing Arts Center. Luxury homes listed with Ebby Halliday also receive exposure in local niche papers such as People Newspapers and online venues popular with affluent international consumers, including CountryLife.co.uk and Juwai.com, the No. 1 Chinese international property website.

 

Through our affiliation with Luxury Portfolio International, Ebby’s luxury listings are often featured in Luxury Portfolio-branded advertising, including full-page ads in The Wall Street Journal, and other prominent publications such as Unique Homes, duPont Registry, Veranda, Smart Money and Velocity, published for CityJet.

Luxury Sales Expected to Thrive in 2014


listing_11

 

Sentiment from top Luxury Portfolio International affiliates in the U.S. and Canada indicates a strong close to 2013 and a rising tide in the affluent segment of the housing market for 2014.

 

As the year closed, the $1- to $2 million tier of the market was very active, and most luxury leaders anticipate it will continue to be so due to a shortage of inventory, often with multiple-offer situations driving prices upward.

 

International buyers continue to be active. The mix of foreign buyers includes those from Saudi Arabia,  South America and the EU, while Asian buyers – particularly the Chinese – continue to be a significant force.

 

Luxury Portfolio brokers report a trend in Chinese buyers gravitating toward properties in the $1 million range, though those investing for children attending U.S. colleges generally are looking for lower-priced properties.

 

“The mood for our Luxury Portfolio brokers is upbeat as we move into 2014,” says Luxury Portfolio International President Paul Boomsma. “They believe that well-priced luxury homes will continue to be in high demand, resulting in increases of 10- to 20% in volume in most of their markets, with unit sales rising 5- to 10%. Compared to a few years ago, that represents a significant improvement.”

 

The Ebby Halliday Companies, which includes Ebby Halliday Realtors and Dave Perry-Miller & Associates, is the exclusive member of Luxury Portfolio International in North Texas.  To learn more about the beautiful Preston Hollow luxury home shown above, click here.
