This article explores the types of brochures used in real estate and delves into how printing brochures can be a game changer for real estate agents by delivering high returns on investment (ROI).
Understanding Different Types of Real Estate Brochures for Printing
1. Property Printing Brochures
Property brochures are widely used in real estate. Their primary focus is on showcasing specific properties.
They highlight features, floor plans and captivating images to provide buyers with a takeaway that allows them to visualize the property in detail at their own pace.
2. Agency Printing Brochures
While property brochures concentrate on listings, Agency brochures have a varied scope. They showcase an agency portfolio, services offered and expertise.
3. Neighbourhood Printing Brochures
Neighbourhood Brochures are a tool in real estate marketing that serves surrounding target purposes. Neighborhood brochures offer insights into the surrounding community showcasing amenities, schools, parks and other points of interest.
They play a role in attracting buyers who not only seek the perfect home but also envision their lifestyle within a specific neighbourhood.
4. Market Update Printing Brochures
Market Update brochures focus on providing real-time information about the real estate market.
These brochures include statistics, trends and insights that aid buyers and sellers in making decisions. Real estate agents can establish themselves as industry experts by distributing these materials.
The Power of Printing Brochures in Real Estate Marketing
1. Tangible Impact
In today’s age, the tangible experience of holding a printed brochure can have a far more enhanced effect than its digital counterpart.
Printed materials convey professionalism and credibility effectively. A crafted brochure reflects the dedication and attention to detail that real estate agents bring to their work.
When clients receive printed brochures it enhances their perception of both the property value and the agent’s services.
3. Targeted Distribution
Printed brochures offer the advantage of household targeted distribution, unlike online marketing. Real estate agents can strategically place brochures in high-traffic domestic areas, and local businesses.
They can even send them directly to clients. This targeted approach ensures that the brochure reaches individuals who have an interest in the estate within a specific location.
4. Enhanced Branding Opportunities
A branded brochure not only contributes to brand recognition but also sets the agency apart from its competitors.
Tips for Creating Engaging Property Brochures

Make sure these images highlight the features of the property while also evoking a sense of lifestyle.
2. Compelling Copywriting
Craft compelling and concise copy that effectively highlights the selling points of the property. Use language to evoke emotions and create a narrative that resonates with buyers’ desires and aspirations.
Communicate the benefits and value proposition of the property.
3. Clear Call to Action (CTA)
Include an actionable call to action (CTA) within your brochure. When it comes to engaging buyers there are ways to guide them towards taking the next steps, such as scheduling a meeting, attending an open house or getting in touch with the agent.
Having a well-defined call to action (CTA) is crucial in increasing the chances of conversion.
4. Professional Design/Layout
Collaborating with a professional designer is essential for creating a pleasing layout.
Paying attention to typography, colour schemes and overall design aesthetics can make a brochure visually appealing.
A well-designed brochure not only grabs attention but also adds value to the property in the eyes of potential buyers.
Types/Sizes of Printing Brochures
Brochure Printing can come in many different types.. what you select depends on your personal preference, and what level of detailed information you want to produce. We will run through a few here..

A5 Brochures (A4 Folded to A5)
The flat size is similar to DL Brochures (A4 Flat Size), but instead of a z fold, the fold is a singular half fold. It’s best to think of this as a smaller version of the A4 Brochures – a good alternative if looking for a cheap alternative to the A4 Brochures that don’t cost as much money.

Stock (Paper) Types for Printing Brochures
Most Real Estate Agents choose a high Gloss, Silk or Matt coasted stock. Gloss is by far the most popular, as the prints almost always have pictures and images in them.
Regarding paper weights, for a premium paper stock flyer, at least 150gsm. Most Real Estate agents prefer cardboard (300gsm +) It depends on your budget and qty required.
The best way to upload your Artwork is, without a doubt, a print-ready PDF. Other file types can be accepted, but PDF is the very best solution for custom brochures.
If printing in Full Colour process, please supply in CMYK format. remember, RGB is screen resolution and the printer doesn’t like this ! It will automatically convert to CMYK and there will be a shift in the colour details.
Be conscious of your fold line positioning – keep art away from being printed on the fold line itself.
Offset versus Digital Printing on Brochures.
If you have colour on the fold lines, you want to print Offset (with Ink) not Digi (with toner). The reason? If you print with toner, the toner sits on top of the paper, and will `burst’ on the fold lines. With Ink, it sits up to 30% in the paper, reducing or eliminating this bursting.
