The Pulse of the Local Real Estate Market

Since 2018, San Angelo LIVE! has produced the Sunday real estate email. Our mission is simple: Produce a product built for real estate agents that was effective while maintaining a cost structure that allowed even the start-up agent an equal voice. The email uses a combination of email, social media engagement, and Search Engine Optimization to showcase and promote real estate for sale in the Concho Valley weekly.

The West Texas Real Estate LIVE! email offers several ways to promote a home or commercial property for sale:

We have the capability to showcase up to three homes per week. A Top Showcase headlines the Sunday West Texas Real Estate LIVE! Email and is shared not online in the real estate email (14,000 subscribers) but as a gallery on Facebook (65k followers), Twitter (5716 followers), and Instagram (8,014 followers). It is also the cover image for the Sunday Real Estate story that headlines Finally, it is featured as part of a push notification to 21,100 phone app subscribers who accept push notifications from us. All said and done, the Top Showcase provides our audience 113,800 times to view it.

A Showcase Subfeature is placed in the middle of the West Texas Real Estate LIVE! email and shared only on Facebook, with an audience potential of 79,000 invitations to view.

Featured Homes for Sale

Featured Listings offer several benefits. The first is the listings are grouped by broker in the weekly West Texas Real Estate LIVE! email. The second is the featured listings are on our website under the Featured Listings tab on our website. The links for each featured listing directs the audience member to the broker website, not ours. The links are tagged with "DO FOLLOW" and that means each of the featured listings gives the broker website Google authority -- what we call "Google juice" -- that enhances the broker website's Search Engine Optimization.

Featured listings are sold in groupings of three. Each featured listing averages 20-40 clicks per week. An example is above, of the Berkshire Hathaway featured listings grouping from the 1/15/2023 edition.

Open House Listings

Our open house product is effective. Before we launched the West Texas Real Estate LIVE! product in 2018, we measured some open houses that attracted only one or two visitors. Many agents did not utilize the open house in their marketing efforts. After our launch, we revisited with key real estate agents and found that open house engagement had increased five-fold. Some open house hosts reported as many as 25 visits on a Sunday afternoon. We found that consistency and frequency of promoting open houses generated a significant opportunity for San Angelo's real estate agents.

We have found that directing our audience to expect an Open House Tour on Sunday from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. obtains the best engagement. We can schedule Open House listings for any day, however, we suggest adding “something special” to attempt to lift the off-Sunday open house event to Sunday’s levels. Also, the sooner you submit your open house listing, the better chance it has to get viewed.

Engagement on the open houses is enhanced if the property has a cool photo (pool photos are great!) or an interesting story (high price in a low-end neighborhood or vis versa).

Here are the top open houses for the week of 1/10-1/15/2023, of the 38 Open House listings:
