Back to the Basics!

With the Real Estate Market in the Buyers mode  we have found the need to get back to the basics.

I have been in Real Estate in St Lucie County for twenty years. And yes, we use to go on caravans.

However from 1998 to 2004 we had no need or time for caravans.  The affiliates and the Realtors

got together and we formed a new deal called Marketing Madness. We meet once a week and pitch

listings and then hold open houses. It just takes a few hours and we have an affiliate, seller, spouse

or any one to open the home for the Realtors. We offer incentives for coming to the open house and

it is catrching on very well. We have had up to 30 open houses in one day. No you can not get to all

of them but we try to go to as many as possible or the ones that we may have a special intrest in. 

Two homes ahve been sold directly from our Marketing Madness. Do you have any ideas for

Back to the basics  MARKETING MADNESS?

Sounds interesting.  Usually I just don't have time to go to open houses.  Pitching the listing sounds like a great time saver. 

I've had some success with sending out a personalized email with pictures of the home.  I target agents who have had sales in the past year in the immediate area.  I personalize the message and invite them to the caravan.  It has gotten a pretty good response.
