I stopped trying to persuade people to move here a long time ago. There is not enough money in being a tour guide. If they have not already decided to make the change then they are back burner. The agents i know who love acting like tour guides don't really make much money.

What can you provide that can't be found everywhere else?  Personalicazation is important.  Not all buyers are the same.  Some want it all.  For others specifics to their needs are important.  Often people don't know what they need until given something that sparks their own fire.  Good luck.

Let's start with location specific essential contacts. Meaning utility, trash pick up, cable and Internet company, security. lawn and pool service, LOCAL moving company, cleaning...the stuff you KNOW they will need....often provided by the previous owner.

Hmm, Retiring......of course that means the best Early Bird specials.

A schedule of REGIONAL and local events including special, get to know your locale excursions.  That is when you get the referrals.

The 'glossy' publication from the Chamber of Commerce most imprtantly the ones with your information.

Demographics of the area.

Top 10 things they must do in the next 6 months to immerse in the community,.

Set date for 6 month anniversary.

Interesting question that evokes good discussion. There is no substitute for actual first-hand experience i.e. visiting the area, seeing/hearing sights and sounds and even watching the coming and goings on as well as speaking with the neighbors. I always notice cars, lawns and pride of ownership plus street conditions and landscaping. Noise and privacy is a big issue also

Oh back in the residential days we did fat relo packets with local real estate magazines (+ we have great area magazines as a resort area with an interesting history), information about necessary local services and vendors, nearby attractions, schools, medical facilities, city and county resources, much more--and a glossy tri-fold brochure about our company and services, with testimonials, as a cover.

I am a member of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce and they provide a fabulous packet for newcomers to the area. I tweak that packet a bit and put the information in a nice package for them. I just got out of a Closing for a relocation client and we sat in the attorney's conference room for quite awhile and I took that opportunity to ask what else they would like to see in the packet!
