Property Sales & Marketing
One of the most important factors involved in selling a home is marketing it to potential buyers. In the contemporary real estate industry, there are more methods of marketing than ever before. As one starts the process of selling a property, he or she will want to find a real estate agency that is able to utilize as many of these options as possible. We as a real estate agent are always willing to go over all of our client’s options to pick and choose the media that will make the most sense in their case. A star marketing effort will not only reach a relevant audience, but it will help maximize the eventual sale price.
There are many factors that we at Miamu Properties Limited take into consideration as we start to work out a sales and marketing strategy. We do not treat every property with a cookie-cutter approach; but factor in a client’s budget, the current state of the local market, and the property location. Marketing involves not only reaching the widest target audience, but also ensuring that this is a relevant audience who will be interested in the property. We also work hard to ensure that the property for sale sells for the highest possible price.
With our experience over the years we already have tried and know true marketing plans for each client to pick and choose from, and we know exactly what works and what doesn’t in today’s market. This gives our clients a peace of mind to know exactly how the marketing aspect of selling a property will be approached, and what it will cost them. We give clear objectives outlined in this marketing plan, along with sensible means for achieving them. Our clients always expect to see measurable goals, including deadlines and responsibilities which we always endeavor to meet.
As a seller it’s helpful to work with an agent who has experience in marketing and selling a property in your local region. With a focused knowledge of your prospective buyers, they will be able to tightly fine-tune the campaign to highlight the details of your property and neighborhood. This should take into consideration whether potential buyers are likely to come from the local area or from outside the region. Your home’s best features should be placed front and center. You can look specifically for agents who have a strong working knowledge. This will ensure that they can customize your campaign to give you a great chance of success.
There are many different types of media that can be used for marketing purposes. The internet is one of the prime targets, including agents’ websites, independent listing websites, real estate websites, message boards, forums, blogs, and social media. Other areas to look at include print ads, magazines, mail flyers, posters, street signboards, word of mouth, and brochures, as well as referrals, TV advertisements, and office property presentations. Other marketing strategies include an email or direct mail marketing campaign, viral advertising, or letterbox drops. The sky is truly the limit when it comes to methods of advertising.
Property Scouting is a service we offer to anyone who is searching for a rental or a buy investment property at a small fee. We give advice to landlords and tenants accordingly regarding various properties. This means landlords will not be left with houses that are either going to struggle to rent out or properties that aren’t returning a high percentage of rent against the sale price. With our Property Scouting Service we search the market for the perfect property rental or purchase for each client’s budget by taking into account the rental yield, potential time frame of letting and the competition in the area. We always give honest advice to landlords as well as tenants to ensure they get a suitable rental or purchase of a property.
For property owners our job is to ensure your property is rented quickly to the right tenants, at the right price. Some of our services include free rental appraisals, comprehensive tenant selection and detailed entry and exit inspections. We also carry out regular routine inspections and arrange maintenance at an extra cost to you.

We always have a great range of properties available at any given time. Whether the client is after land, an apartment or mansion, by the beach or city center, we love to be part of finding the perfect home for them and most of our clients have loved our friendly professionalism.
In conveyancing we assist our clients in the transfer of legal title of property or ownership or interest in real property from one person to another by a document, such as a deed, lease or the granting of an encumbrance such as a mortgage or a lien.
A typical conveyancing transaction contains two major landmarks: the exchange of contracts (whereby equitable title passes) and completion (whereby legal title passes). Conveyancing occurs in three stages: before contract, before completion and after completion. A buyer of real estate property must ensure that he or she obtains a good and marketable ‘title’ to the land; i.e., that the seller is the owner, has the right to sell the property, and there is no factor which would impede a mortgage or re-sale.
A system of conveyancing is usually designed to ensure that the buyer secures title to the land together with all the rights that run with the land, and is notified of any restrictions in advance of purchase. In most mature jurisdictions, conveyancing is facilitated by a system of land registration which is designed to encourage reliance on public records and assure purchasers of land that they are taking a good title.

Loans are given for productive purposes, this in effect are loans for economic development, for instance, a loan to buy a tractor, a cow, a plot or a house. Loans are also given for provident purposes, i.e. to provide for social needs such as buying clothes, paying school fees, household items and wedding gifts.
Real estate development, or property development, is a multifaceted business process, encompassing activities that range from the renovation and re-lease of existing buildings to the purchase of raw land and the sale of or parcels to others to meet customers’ requirements. We as Miamu Properties coordinate all of these activities, converting plans, needs and ideas into property. We buy land, finance real estate deals, build or have builders build projects, create, imagine, control and orchestrate the process of development from the beginning to end. As developers we usually take the greatest risk in the creation or renovation of real estate. Typically, we purchase a tract of land, determine the marketing of the property, develop the building program and design, obtain the necessary public approval and financing, build the structures, and rent out, manage, and ultimately sell it.
Sometimes as property developers we only undertake part of the process. For example, we source a property and get the plans and permits approved before selling the property with the plans and permits to a builder at a premium price. Alternatively, we can sell to a developer who is a builder only who prefers to purchase a property with the plans and permits in place so that they do not have the risk of failing to obtain planning approval and can start construction on the development immediately.
As developers we work with many different counterparts along each step of this process, including architects, city planners, engineers, surveyors, inspectors, contractors, lawyers, leasing agents, among many others.
Property Tour – Miamu Express
Investing in real estate is a big decision, and so one would want to make the most out of it in every way possible. One way of doing so is by conducting a site visit to the property of interest. Like in any other purchase, one would want to see the product first before they put their money down, just to check if it’s really worth it.
We have weekly site visits to various properties for our clients to get an overview of how the property looks and its surroundings. During the site visit, we encourage our clients to observe and inquire about the prevailing and possible market conditions of the place where the property is. We also advice the clients about the major local issues affecting the area for instance if the utilities like water and power work fine in the area.
