I’m looking to see if any of you have found some creative ways to sell a house. I’m looking for some alternative options besides the MLS and realtors, and auctions.
I remember seeing an episode of “Flip this house” where they held a big open house ice cream social type of thing for the block and it said they sold it within 2 weeks. Now we all know they fudge a little on those shows, so that isn’t the point.
Have any of you ever done anything creative to get the word out in the neighborhoods about your house for sale?
When it comes to signs, one thing you might consider is to look for places where other people are putting their bandit signs. If they are there for a long time, chances are they are leading to a halfway-decent amount of leads. Also, high-traffic areas in your vicinity are obviously good places for signs as well.
One thing I thought of in addition to signs, was to canvas the surrounding neighborhood door to door with flyers, telling everyone about the house for sale and also telling them that if they refer a buyer, I’ll pay a nice finders fee. It seems like if people like their neighborhood, they’d want their friends or family to move there too if they are looking for a new place…
