Weekly Market Updates for Active Listings:

Every Monday we email a Market Update to our active sellers based on data we acquire via MLS and IGuide. MLS provides us with stats about the action our active listings are receiving within client portals. To find these stats, go to the MLS homepage (Image 1) → My Listings → My Hit Counters. 

We then take a look at what has come up on the market over the past week in their areas. We do 2 searches, one for what is active within a certain radius of their home (typically a 2km radius, more if the home is in a more rural area) and one for what is active in their neighbourhood (within their district). 

Every Monday Prime Visuals (photographer) sends us a report stating how many people have viewed the IGuide. We include this information in our marketing report. We also include any feedback received form showings on their listing. Below is an example/template of the weekly market update
