Data proves power of print

30 January 2015 Staff Reporter

Marketing campaigns that use print deliver better and faster results than online-only campaigns, a review of 850,000 sales has found.

CoreLogic RP Data reached their conclusion after a two-year analysis that looked at where each property was advertised, its time on the market, offer price and value of the final deal.

Sydney properties that were advertised in both print and online channels sold for 5.1 per cent more than online-only properties, according to the data house. They also had a 13.9 per cent greater success rate and spent 50.0 per cent less time on market.

Melbourne properties that used print increased their sale price by 3.1 per cent and their success rate by 33.3 per cent, while time on market fell by 6.7 per cent.

Print gave Brisbane real estate a gain of 5.8 per cent in the sale price, and 12.5 per cent in the success rate, as well as a reduction of 16.7 per cent in time on market.

Perth enjoyed a boost of 8.7 per cent in the sale price through print advertising and 4.0 per cent in the success rate, although time on market actually climbed by 8.0 per cent.

Adelaide homes that were advertised in print gained 5.7 per cent in the sale price and 7.6 per cent in the success rate, while time on market fell 13.0 per cent.
