Tips and Tricks: Identifying property “Hot Spots”

To get the best returns when marketing to prospective customers, you need to target your efforts at the most active spots in your local area.

Have you noticed that once you see one FOR SALE sign go up on a street, more signs start to spring up over the coming weeks?

RP Professional can help you take advantage of this activity and identify the “Hot Spots” to target in your area.

To find the most popular areas in a suburb:

  • Bring up the suburb that you want to search in the RP Professional Property System.
  • Click on the Recent Sales tab and refine your search to show the sales in the last three months. You may want to refine the search to show only houses or units.
  • Tag all your results, and select RP Map, which will generate a map of your area with the selected sales highlighted.

If there are any clusters of recent sales on your new map of your area, then you’ve identified a “Hot Spot”. You can now target your marketing campaign to these streets to maximise your chances of attracting prospective customers.
