Innovations & Solutions
C reating N ew I nitiatives that will S timulate T oday ’ s R eal E state M arket Today’s global recession has heavily impacted our US real estate and financial markets. Not only are we experiencing declining property values and new home sales, but also today’s consumers have rallied to the sideline and are waiting for a positive signal that it is okay to purchase real estate once again. The tools and resources we have successfully used in the past to market projects have become virtually ineffective. With our eye on the unique challenges facing builders, developers, and lenders, Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty has developed new marketing innovations and solution-driven strategies designed to attract and stimulate property buyers worldwide. Many of these tools and resources are exclusive to Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty.
Solutions for Non-performing Assets
S upporting L enders , S ervicers , and O utsourcers This is a historic moment in time for banks and financial institutions. It is a time for decisive and focused action. Today the challenge facing lenders, servicers, and outsourcers is a tidal wave of nonperforming residential projects, office buildings, commercial developments, and undeveloped land holdings that may prove to be much more difficult and costly to manage than the residential workout currently under way. To assist its clients to meet this challenge, Stirling Sothebyâ€™s International Realty has brought together a diverse and talented team of professionals who have the expertise to analyze non-performing assets and bring together innovations and solutions that will not only assist in liquidating, but more importantly maximizing the assetâ€™s overall potential. The teamâ€™s management services have been successfully deployed in assignments ranging from a few REO and short sale properties to cases involving hundreds of units as well as repositioning undeveloped properties to achieve their highest and best use.

In today’s global market, how we reach and communicate with
the consumer has forever changed. In years past, builders and developers had access to substantial marketing dollars, most of which was invested in print advertising, elaborate brochures, project branding
and lavish marketing events. In today’s market environment, we no longer have enormous marketing budgets to work with and there is a need to do more with less. In order to maximize a project’s marketability,
Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty has formed its own stand-alone advertising group, Innovation and Messaging Services (IMS). This group of highly talented professionals has the ability to create high impact, cost effective marketing strategies with global reach.
With Generation X and Y being over 60% of today’s market, old practices are no longer effective and have been replaced with creative messaging.

Worldwide Auction Services
A n A lternative to T raditional M arketing
Todayâ€™s real estate purchasers have positioned themselves on the sideline waiting for a clear signal that the market has bottomed out and now is the time to buy. Even well executed, traditional marketing plans have only generated limited sales activity, mainly due to buyerâ€™s lack of urgency. An alternative to waiting and maintaining ongoing holding costs is to conduct a Worldwide Auction. A wellfacilitated Worldwide Auction will attract hundreds of prospects and place them in a competitive environment that generally will bring forth realistic market prices followed by property closings within approximately 30
