Buying a new home or renting a new place is an exciting occasion and calls for celebration! If you work in real estate, this is a great opportunity for building a lasting connection with your clients with a thoughtful housewarming gift. Not only will gifting clients something to celebrate their new home make them remember you, but it also sets you apart from the competition and could lead to recommendations.

Here’s why giving housewarming gifts is great for your business and some recommendations for gifts your clients will love.

Why Give Housewarming Gifts

When a client buys or sells a home, or rents a new place, they have countless choices of real estate agents and organizations to choose from to help. By providing excellent service, including thoughtful gifts for your real estate clients, you’ll gain referrals and repeat business the next time they’re ready to move. A housewarming gift is a great way to stand out from your competition in a positive way.

A unique gift will help keep your and your relationship with your client top of mind when they’re renting, buying, or selling again, or talking to people in their lives about which agent to use. It’s an easy way to promote your service and a relatively inexpensive way to go above and beyond for your clients.

Beyond being good for your business, a gift can help your client have a positive experience during the moving process. Selling a home or moving into a new place can be stressful, and a gift featuring snacks they’ll love will give them one less thing to worry about. And since moving can be a nostalgic and important experience, a gift helps you show empathy and kindness to clients and help you make a lasting impression.
