Flyers-We Don't Need No Stinking Flyers

By
Real Estate Broker with CJ Realty Group, Inc.

Okay that might be a stretch but if you want me to put flyers in a box outside on a post, well it's not going to happen.  One of the reason is that my custom yard signs eliminate the need for a flyer box.  So what about inside the house?  What do you need for a buyer to walk away with?

To be honest I'm torn.  When an agent arrives at the home with a buyer they have already run the MLS sheet which has all of the important information on the property.  In addition our MLS allows us to upload additional documentation such as signed property disclosures, floor plans, contract instructions, information on what conveys with the property and any other information pertinent to the home.  So again what is it that a buyer needs? 

How about a business card they can easily slip into their pocket which has the basic information about the home and a QR code that will take them to the property video?

The property cards are easy to make with Publisher and Avery business cards give you the template and size to print. 

They may not work for everyone but if most of the information about your property is already on-line is printing a stack of flyers neccessary?

Cindy, what a great idea to add the QR code to your property business cards! I do think for those people who may not be smartphone-equipped, I would go ahead and add the property URL, too. I have subdomains for mine (such as barton.souzarealty.com) to make it easier to type in. :)

Cindy, great idea. I dislike priting and filling boxes and can't track business to them. At least with a QR code or text code you know when someone is looking and never have to worry about running out of flyers.

Leilani-most of my listings have their own URL which is the address of the property.

Scott-I think flyer boxes are an invitation for trouble.  With my custom signs no need for a flyer box as the basic information and property photos are front and center.
