Expectations shape the search for homes. Properties are examined for the values they can offer, with societal perceptions applied to every acre. A location is dissected — assumed to be flawed if it can’t provide the standards that real estate brokers have squawked about (their words offered again and again, forcing the messages they want consumers to heed). Houses are dismissed if they don’t offer the modern styles individuals are told they must have. Entire neighborhoods can be deemed undesirable if they lack the pristine lawns that are meant to suggest stability and wealth.
This… must stop.
Real estate is a business that is defined by marketing techniques — with consumers surrounded by a philosophy of excess and unnecessary spending. Credits are overwhelmed in the quest for the perfect home (which is often just an illusion generated by brokers and their clever smiles).
Subvertising is therefore needed to break this tradition — now.
The notion of subvertising is too often applied to capitalism, the corporate schemes and persuasions. Offering it to real estate, however, can provide immediate — and worthwhile — results: with signs used to mock the need for perfection (as it’s defined by brokers). Targeting the refusal of specific styles or districts can bring awareness to the simple truth that real estate agents are trying to merely sell the most expensive properties they can: insinuating that clients must have the best to be the best.
The use of subvertising will help to combat this superficial idea and allow future home-buyers to think of what they truly want — rather than what they’re being told they must have.
