This weekend, we staffed our own booth at the Sacramento Boat and RV show and we found some great home buyers there! We did receive some comments wondering why there was a Real Estate company at a boat/RV show, but we were focusing on homes that had lake access, boat docs, and/or RV Access and parking and that brought some positive comments and interest! We also had some floating keychains made with our logo on them to entice show goers to come on by our booth for some free swag. We set up a slideshow of some of the current homes for sale with water access and had that rolling on our iPad for a little visual appeal.
I must say that it was my first event of this kind, so getting the right phrases to use with this boating crowd took a little time to perfect, but we have some great leads and will definitely sell some properties to several folks who we spent some time with at the show. I think what also made this successful was the fact that we were the only real estate company there, so if you have ever considered attending a home show, boat show, RV show or any other show, it could be a good way to locate new clients, plus you'll be up to date on all of the new boats currently available!
