Weekly Tip -  Help Out The Curious Neighbors!



Nosey neighbors love to eat!    

I saw a blog that got my attention about hosting a Saturday morning opportunity for your new buyers or the buyers that bought your listing to meet their new neighbors!  That's right, do this with your buyers and the buyer's agents buyers too that bought your listing!  This way, you are the one that gets to know the buyers better AND their new neighbors.   It's all about meeting people that will be connecting you with real estate in a positive light.  And since the new neighbors are going to be itching to meet their new neighbors, this idea is a great opportunity for them too.  

Here's how you can do this!  

1. Meet with the new buyers after they move in and offer to host a "meet the new neighbors drop-in brunch or afternoon drop-in" from 9-11am or 2-4 pm for them so they can meet their new neighbors so they can start making new friends.  Ask them when they want to do this for them.  

2. Then contact a local restaurant to get them to go in with you by providing some breakfast or afternoon treats.  Make sure that they know that you will giving them all the credit for the refreshments and that this is a great opportunity for the restaurant to pick up a new repeat customer.  

3. Then deliver invitations to all of their new neighbors with your contact information and the information about the refreshments that you will be serving.  Ask for an optional but not required RSVP so you can get a better handle on how many to prepare for.  

4. On the day of the event, put out some balloons by the road and set up your refreshments and make sure to bring coffee, juice, soft drinks, etc. and plenty of business cards!    

I hope this tip helps your business with tons of new buyers and listings!
