How do buyers find out about open houses in your area ?
I host open house on Sundays . I have a sign in sheet which asks where they heard about the open house.
I find it interesting to see that not many people find out about it from the newspaper. Sometimes there may be one person and sometimes none from the newspaper.
However I will continue to advertise the open house in the newspaper because there are others who read the real estate section regularly and will see my name .
Here are some of the other ways they hear about an open house in my market area
1. Signs . Some of these prospects have been waiting for a house to come on the market in the sub division , and some may be just checking out neighborhoods .
2. We can list it in our multiple listing. Buyer's agents can then alert their clients.
3.Post cards. WE mail out post cards .
4.Agents blog about the open houes, eg ActiveRain. Consumers find out online.
5.Craigslist or Trulia.
Have you come across other sites to advertise your open house ?
Most people search for homes online so I am looking to find more sites just for open houses so hey will be found easily.
