Outta The Radio Box

 

 

 Out of the radio box comes my best tactic for following up with a seller lead.

When a potential seller contacts me, I spend time answering their questions and engage in conversation to see what their motivation for selling and find out  the features and selling points.

 I continue to  check out the accuracy on the tax data website.

 I sum up the information, repeating it back to them and tell them I will be talking about their property on Sunday's radio program

ALL ABOUT REAL ESTATE.

I may even schedule the listing appointment.

 And then I tell them to listen!

 

All About Real Estate Margaret Rome

 I do what I say.

 

 Sunday at noon , I gave a "teaser" ad talking in generalities.  Maybe there will be a new listing. I mentioned the  old farm house on half acre that is close to the new Wegmans and major access roads. This  home  will be  under $250,000 in a neighborhood surrounded by half million dollar plus homes.

  

 

The listing appointment was Tuesday evening.

The sign ordered.

 I wrote a blog.

 I had the seller write a letter to her house.

The professional photography was done today and, as of the writing of this post for the contest, we are live on the MLS. 

 

This is what makes me unforgettable!

What a neat idea!   Love the suspense that you create by being proactive about homes that "might" be coming on the market.  Kudos!

Good morning Margaret.  Looks like we may have rain (liquid kind) Sunday. If so I'll be listening if not I'll be chasing that little white ball

What a unique way to market your listings. Sellers should not choose any other Realtor in your area!
