When it comes to real estate, nothing is more important than location. Real estate agents often find that the location is more likely to sell a home than its quality of materials or level of craftsmanship. Real estate agents often hold open houses to generate a buzz about a home that is on the market. Real estate agents usually provide refreshments to visitors while they answer questions about the home. Unfortunately, sometimes people don’t show up for open houses. This can be demoralizing to the agent because a no show means hours of hard work and preparation were ineffective.
CUT THE NO SHOWS!
Vinyl banners are a highly effective way to advertise an upcoming open house; and, even better, the banners can be used on a recurring basis. Vinyl banners are great for saving space because they roll up easily. You can also say whatever you want to say on a vinyl banner. A real estate agent can design her custom banner to mention not only that there is an upcoming open house, but also her name, phone number and website address. The real estate agent must remember, however, that just as the location of the house is important, so too is the location she chooses to display her custom vinyl banner. Keep reading to learn about three effective locations for displaying an open house banner.
#1: ON A MAIN ROAD NEAR THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Unfortunately, people get lost on their way to open houses all the time. Basically, the more people that see the open house custom banner, the more likely the agent is to have a good turnout. Metal poles attach easily to either end of a custom banner and provide a quick display. I recommend going out a day or so before the open house and scoping a good spot to display your full color banner. Be sure to include the date and time of the open house on your custom banner!
#2: AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE SUBDIVISION
Again, a no brainer. Considering the amount of urban sprawl that has taken place in our country in recent years, there are new subdivisions that have sprung up all over the place. These days, real estate agents sell buyers on neighborhoods just as much as they sell them on homes. Since there are now so many neighborhoods, a custom banner is very useful in drawing attention towards the neighborhood in which your listing is located. Just as you did at the busy intersection, scope out a spot near the entrance to the neighborhood, attach your vinyl banner to a pair of metal poles and set up your display a day or so before the open house.
NUMBER THREE: OUT FRONT OF THE HOUSE
This really is a simple concept. And, lucky for you, your local vinyl banner maker will gladly punch a couple of holes into your custom banner and insert grommets so that your banner can easily be hung from most any object. All you have to do for your open house is tie some nylon string through the holes on either end of your custom banner and hang the banner from the front of the house. It’s that simple!
GO GET YOURSELF A SALE!
You should now have no trouble getting a good buzz going about your listing! Good luck!
