Prospecting Tip #4 Circle the Neighborhood

Congratulations on your new listing.  Now it is time to Circle the Neighborhood Prospectingaka Circle Propsecting.

Deliver New Listing flyers to the neighbors of your new listing.  Why?  The neighbors are curious about the price and just might know someone who wants to live in their neighborhood.


Circle Prospecting spreads the word about your new listing to 5 neighbors on either side and 10 neighbors across the street from new listing.


Circle Prospecting can be done via postcards in the mail or in person.  Walk around to each house with flyers.  Knock on door and yes, the neighbors just might be home if you stop by on Saturday morning or after school as the kids are getting off the bus.  In one neighborhood close to town, I discovered that many people came home at lunch time so I did Circle Prospecting 11:30-1:30.  If no one is home leave flyer in baggie or between doors.  Do not put anything in the mailbox. 

ProspectingOther reasons to Circle Prospect include:  Open House invitations and New Neighbor announcments.  Don't forget to have fun while generating leads for future referrals.

Mary - Great tip and reminder for business growth.  I often think we have become so focused on social media, that we forget the old ways which are as effective today as they ever have been.

Mary, I like your "circle prospecting." What a great way to meet neighbors near your listing.

Circle prospecting definitely works.  I don't know why more people don't do it.   I sell homes all the time to someone who knows a neighbor.

Hi Mary!

This is something that I will have to do, or at least try. It can't hurt, right? Now, to find the time...
