Now that you are ready to put your home on the market, it's a good time to start thinking about how to advertise it so you can sell quickly. Here are three unique advertising options to consider implementing:
Be a Sponsor and Buy Space on Sports Banners
Whether it's Little League Baseball, Pop Warner Football, or any other sports team in your community, more than likely they sell banner space to those interested in sponsoring them. So, why not become a sponsor and advertise the sale of your home on their banners until you close a deal? Your banners will be seen by families both in the immediate vicinity and those coming from other cities and towns to play against your home teams, so you'll have lots of opportunities to attract potential buyers.
Host Open House Parties
Instead of hosting traditional open houses where people drop by or make an appointment to tour your home, consider hosting open house parties that encourage conversation and lighten the mood. Have your realtor compile a list of people who have shown interest in buying your home, and invite them all to a gathering so they can tour the place and get their questions answered.
Make it a potluck, so you aren't stuck with the entire food bill, and implement balloons and banners to make the event festive. Put on a little jazz or contemporary music and set out a table where people can come together to compare their notes about your home and discuss any concerns they have with your real estate agent. The idea is to make the event exciting so that potential buyers are stimulated, intrigued, and stay in a good mood while they're checking your house out.
Have Some T-Shirts Made
Another unique yet effective way to advertise your home is to have custom t-shirts made for your friends and family to wear. Feature a photo of your home, two or three special features, and a contact phone number on the shirts so that people who see them and are interested in learning more can simply write the number down to call later. Buy two or three different colored shirts for your immediate family so that everyone can wear them often throughout the week without looking like they've been wearing the same thing.
These tips and tricks should make it easy to gain attention from potential buyers and get your home sold quickly. For more information, contact a professional such as Donna Soda.
