Would the 'warm puppy technique' work in real estate? If you've never heard of this, let me explain. Think of the child in the pet store who wants a dog. An astute salesperson would see that the parents are trying to make a decision and suggest they take the puppy home for the weekend.
If it doesn't work out, bring the furbaby back on Monday. We know that in most cases, this is impossible, they have bonded, and they have bought the pooch.
We have seen this used with jewelry, art, rugs, and cars.
The chances are pretty good that if they try it for a few days...with these instructions
Go ahead and see if you like it.
They have bought it.
Is there a way to use this in Real Estate? Sort of a test of the property?
Think of an out of town family staying in the property for a few days... wanting to find out about a neighborhood, commute time, the noise level, etc.
Any idea of how this could work?
Many stage homes so why not take the same approach and make the house available for test stays for prospective buyers. Of course, this would be for specific properties, done with caution, legal paperwork, etc.
Has anyone done a warm puppy technique when selling real estate?
