How can this be?  Is this really possible?  What about all those homes in the Homes Section?...

 

5850 Harmony Grove Rd. in Dover Township is Sold!

Sold

Dover Township, York County  -  The 4-level split at 5850 Harmony Grove Rd. has been sold without any print advertising.  Many sellers love to see their home in the paper, homes publications, etc....  But it usually is not needed to sell.  This home was under contract after being on the market for only 7 days!  If you have any questions about the advantages of online advertising, please ask!

I do little print advertising and stick with the online media. I think if you explain the benefits to sellers, they will agree to this.

Don't get me wrong, there are benefits to print, but usually it is US that benefits.  Making our phones ring, recognition, etc...  Or the sellers feel good about seeing their home and feel you are doing your part to sell it.  It is very expensive too.  I think if you tell them you will give them a small cut on commission if you do not advertise this way, they might agree, unless it does not sell, then you are in trouble and need to do it anyway.  Anyway, thanks for the feedback!

Yesterday I was just reading an article on this topic . Places like Craig's List are booming! Consumers want to have the opportunity to advertise without the expense. For me...I get everything from my local news to the latest and greatest sales all on-line. It's on demand and best of all it's FREE!
