AR Members Providing Suggestions for Open House Flyers

Real Estate Agent with Vision Quest Realty WV0026375

I went to Active Rain's Q&A section and posted the following question on September 15:

"I need to make a flyer for an open house. Does anyone know a site that would be easy to make flyers and have a PDF file made? Thanks,"


The AR members did not disappoint me. I received many suggestions. Below is a list of sites to go to if you are in the need for flyers:

  • Canva
  • Breakthrough Broker
  • Publisher
  • A Rainers CMA,  eEdge
  • Google Docs   
  • Vistaprint Design Services 
  • Virtuance 
  • Adobe Illustrator 
  • MS Publisher
  • Your MLS 
  • Print Shop 
  • ListingsToLeads - referral by Praful Thakkar
  • Also, many loan officers will make one for you. Otherwise, realbird, picmonkey, pixlr, mls, adobe spark, vistaprint, expresscopy, can work.
  • - (just added per Nina Hollander)


So, after checking out the sites, I chose Canva. It was very easy.  Below is my flyer for tomorrow's open house. I have to do another Open House for The Retreat on October 7th and will be using Canva again. The flyer was sent to the Greater Greenbrier Chamber of Commerce. They did an email blast (e-blast) to all 3100 members. Each real estate office is allowed one e-blast a month for $25.00.  The flyer had to be in pdf format, once the Chamber office receives the flyer, they put it in jpg.format and added my link for more information,

I see ads online all the time for help with open house flyers. Probably should have kept some of them. I'll email myself your post instead!

I like Microsoft Publisher and I love VistaPrint.  Quality flyers and market materials help set us apart from the crowd.

Good morning, Rebecca... nice of you to compile this list as there are many who never go to the Q&A section of the Rain. I love using publisher and fortunately can make color copies at my office at no charge... so for me a quick flyer is easy.  By the way, if you design a flyer, you can have it printed and delivered quickly at a very low cost by I know I suggest Breakthrough Broker the other day, but totally forgot about Paperblast.

Very nice Rebecca. I have a template we use in Pages and send it to the printer to ensure a high-quality result. I'm going to check out too per Nina Hollander 's recommendation. D

Hi Rebecca,
Thank you so much for aggragating this list!  I used Publisher when I was working but I know there are a lot more options now.  I designed my own and let a preferred lender print them for me, in exchange for a small mention in the flyer.

This is a great list of tools for flyers and just about anything else we need. I'll save it to my Bookmarked posts. My office prepares flyers so I'm lucky there. By the way, your flyer and listing looks very attractive.

That is a great list. Also our MLS offers Cloud CMA and flyers and they look great. Many franchise companies offer this in their suite of services.
