Using Too Late and Sold ... Advertising the Rome Way

When my listings go under contract, I like to use the term Too Late on my sign rider.

 

                                                  Too Late 

 

When doing my ads I take a thick marker and write Too Late or Sold  and put a copy in the file . There is a cool  marker like app on my   iPad that allows me to write these words in my own writing style.  I then take a screen shot and  save  a photo of these handwritten words. 

 

                                                      Too Late ...Sold  HomeRome


An email attachment is sent to the advertiser so these changes can be made depending on my activity.

Now my advertising looks like I personally marked these properties as Too Late or Sold!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Sell Your Home With Margaret Rome

What are you doing to bring attention to your ads?

Hi Margaret, Nicely done. This is a nice way to let consumers knw that if they see the home they want, it would be better to be ahead of the "Too Late" and even better to be the buyers that cause it. :-)

Hi Margaret,

My very first brokers in the early 70's have oversized riders for our yard signs that said "Sorry Too Late" instead of using sold signs on everything.

Btw, what's that iPad app, if you don't mind sharing?

Margaret, at times, I have to use these words for my buyers who still believe that low-ball offers work! And they learn the lesson after they are 'too late' for few homes.

Margaret~delightful and eye-catching! I don't do newspaper anymore other than my business card and I barter by getting it for free, since I write for the little local Vernonia paper.

I used to put Sale Pending and I would hex it, so I don't do that anymore!

With sooo many last minute kind of things these days...tooo late is almost on top of the closing date...too much "who knew" to to post earlier...good job.

Margaret, they look great. There's nothing like the fear of losing out!

William, This has sign has produced some positive feedback.

Lynda, Do you think I need to say "Sorry"...'cause I'm not. I wrote about this app...Cool iPad Tool and Fun For All Ages!

 

Joni, Glad you are using the "too late". So proud of you.

Praful, These buyers need to lose a house to get serious.

Jordon, Glad you like it.

Gayle, Once I put a "Sold" sign when we went under contract. Never again!

Thank you Sally and good speaking with you.

Connie, 'Fear of loss' can be a good motivator.
