Is the Flyer Box a Thing of the Past?
I remember when I started in Real Estate in 2009, I was taught that we always put a flyer box at the homes we were listing, stocked with flyers and make sure it didn't become empty. For those that may be new to the Industry and don't know what I'm talking about, remember, this was near the beginning of the era where the buyers got their information from the internet.
The flyers had all the necessary information printed on them, mostly in color, so the Buyer could pick up the information at the home, when they see the For Sale sign and need the information. After reading the information and looking at the pictures, they can call the Listing Agent, who's contact information is on the flyer.
The only problem, or should I dare say "problems", was, when it rained, they became wet and the stack of flyers stuck together, the ink smeared and ran. They disappeared just about as fast as we put them in the box, if it didn't rain. Kids would remove them, sometimes scatter them around the neighborhood and (Rumor had it), we even discovered other agents removing them.
So, with that in mind, now most potential buyers don't need flyers, when they can just find the listing online and print out their own flyer. There are still some agents who insist having the flyer box, but they usually are empty.
As far as I am concerned the Flyer Box has gone by the way of the Fax machine and the telephone cord.
Do you still use the Flyer Box, or have seen one lately?
(If you still use them......why?)
