Sell a brand, not just “2Bd, 2Bth, $ x”

I totally agree with the 3 major points I found in the attached article:

  • Market indirectly by giving people something to talk about…unique information to brag about…you !
  • I like having the tenants write blog posts for an inside perspective. Offer an incentive to them.
