The Pile of 'NOs' on the Counter-Please Throw The Business Cards Away!
While out showing homes today, I saw it. IT is what we call 'The Pile of NOs' on the counter. One home I showed had 17 business cards on the counter. Seventeen!
Call it what you may but when you really think about it, it is all the people that have NOT decided to buy your home. In this instance, there were seventeen potential buyers out there (not counting the ones that may simply have not left a card) that viewed this home and, for whatever reason, did not like it enough to call it home.
Is this the message you want to give to potential buyers?
Larry and I have a great system for showing contact, feedback and follow up. We do not need these cards and do not want other potential buyers to see them. While it is nice to see the interested people through your home, having business cards out tells the buyer that the other folks have not liked your home (at least not well enough to write an acceptable offer).
So go ahead and throw them away.
Jacque & Larry
