Ok, so I place the ad on Tuesday to be in the Real Estate Guide section of Sunday's paper-the one with all the open houses, the map to them all, etc. Put a "Open Sunday" sign in the yard on Tuesday or Wednesday before the open house so everyone can see it and plan for it. I put pointers out that day to directing every to it.
Day of open house, I put helium balloons on all the signs to be sure to catch everyone's eye. It's Sunday, 2pm, and guess what, only the neighbors come. They just want to "check out property value in their neighborhood" or "I'm building and want to get some ideas".
Any ideas on how to draw the "serious buyer" instead of the "I need something to do on Sunday afternoon lookers"?
Too, what ideas can you give me to hand out for potential buyers to remember me and not just let me blend in with all the other Realtors they have met that day?
Thanks again, and you guys are right. I'm TOTALLY obsessed with this site!
