Niche marketing to seniors. I am a seniors real estate specialist

 I am a seniors Real estate specialist and hold the SRES designation.

I enjoy working with seniors as I myself am a senior. Here are a few things that I will do in 2017 to market my real estate services to Seniors.

1. Write  a general posts about all the Senior communities in Bucks County. These will be timeless posts and just describe the amenities in the communities and types of homes. I got the idea for timeless posts from Debbie Gartner.

2. Write monthly market reports about all the senior communities in Bucks county.

3. Write about the parks and recreation in the townships near these communities.

4.Write about Restaurants and shopping near these communities..

5.Write about activities they have at the communities.

5.I will write about topics that seniors will be interested in eg downsizing, aging in place ,selling a house and buying another, etc.

6.Write about New construction for seniors in the area ,

7. I will have guest bloggers write about financing for seniors and reverse mortgage.

8. I will see if I can find an attorney who can write a guest blog .

9.I will write posts about how to  net more money by making repairs  and improvements. 

10.Write about different hospitals in the  area .

11.I will choose 10 communities and write something everyday about one of them . I will link to other posts every time I write about the same community.

12.I will reblog posts on active rain that are applicable to seniors. I do not reblog often but will do so in 2016.

13.I will write about transportation near by.

14. I will write about trips for seniors held by senior centers in the area.

15.I will write about senior centers and their activities.

16.Write about the discount  offers offered by different businesses for seniors. 

17.I will write localism posts about events for seniors.

18.I will write about HOA s and what the fee  covers for the communities.

19.I will write a post each month about a community with links to all the posts I wrote that month about the communty.

20.I will do a post every quarter with links to all posts about a community.

 

When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.

Good morning Gita.  There are a lot of seniors out there and like you I'm one of them.  My mind tells me I'm 30 but my body is screaming, NO WAY!

Hi Gita... a wonderfully comprehensive approach to the seniors market. I work with quite a few myself, but we don't have all that many "true" senior communities in our area. But it's still on my list of things to do to write about the communities we do have.
