At the beginning of each new month, we like to go back and see what the Top 4 Trades were from the previous month. This way, we know what our clients are looking for and how trade is helping them in their daily lives.
The Top 4 Trades from June were:
Typically, you probably use your trade dollars on “normal things” - dentist, restaurants, office supplies, etc. etc. However, we do occasionally have amazing properties and land for sale that you can use your trade to purchase. If you want to be notified when we have land for sale on trade, contact your broker so they know you’re interested and looking!
Advertising is one of the best things to utilize your trade dollars on, especially as a small business owner. We can connect your business to advertising services specializing in direct mail, radio, newspapers, magazines, email blasts, and more. If you are looking to increase your marketing - especially if you are reopening your business soon, IMS can help you.
Keeping a roof over your head can be pricey, especially if you need to replace your roof. The national average prices for a roof replacement can range from $260 - $700 per square depending on the roofing material you select, the size of your roof, and the roof type. For example, a new asphalt shingles roof for a typical 2,000 sq. ft single story ranch house can range in price from $8,500 - $16,500 fully installed. IMS saved our clients some serious cash this month because they used their trade dollars for their new roofing.
Truck and Plow
Just like land, every now and then IMS have vehicles available to purchase on trade. This past month, a client was able to purchase a truck with a plow package. If you are in the market for a new vehicle - personal or for business - check in with your broker.
Isn't it amazing what trade can do for you?
