1) Price it right (lower than your competition)!
2) Keep your home clean, smelling fresh, and de-cluttered.
3) Make sure you have a great Realtor with aggressive marketing strategies.
4) Accommodate every showing and make it easy to show.
But these days, following the basics is sometimes not enough to sell a home. We suggest using the element of surprise to delight, entertain, and attract buyers. These ideas will certainly draw attention, create an interest and perhaps make it the most memorable home in the bunch.
So go a little crazy with us...
Host an Open House Treasure Hunt
Take 3 obscure photos from 3 different rooms in your home. Make sure the photo is abstracted by using a close-up shot. Give 3 clues. They can rhyme or be a riddle, whatever you can come up with. The potential buyer will not only walk though your home but do so with an examining eye, enjoying the game and at the same time having fun.
Tweet and Find the Red Tomato
Have your Realtor put a red tomato (or any unusual object) in one of the photos of one of the rooms in your home. Have them post a tweet that not only advertises your home for sale but invites people to play a "seek and find" game.
"Tweet and Find" your $250,000 3 bedroom 2 bath Home in Philadelphia. Find the hidden red tomato!
Give a Gift
Everyone loves to receive a gift. Make a few party favor bags and place them at the entrance of the door. Put mints, gum, or whatever you want in the bag as a parting gift thanking them for the visit. Have instructions near the gift that reads:
Welcome to our home. Make sure you look at our beautiful herb garden out back. Please take this gift as our way of thanking you for your visit and wishing you luck on your home search!
What other ideas can you think of that could help you sell your home?
