"THE FENCE SITTERS": THE NEW NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS (NAR) COMMERCIAL...

By
Real Estate Agent with Charles Rutenberg Realty - Naperville

Have you seen it?

It's being run during the NCAA basketball tournament:

A family is sits on a fence, in front of a home that is FOR SALE...

"Why are we sitting here?" the wife asks...

"I am not sure exactly," the husband replied.  ""They" said we should wait."

"It looks so nice," says the wife.

"I want one, Mom," chimes in the daughter.

"Me too Sweety.  Me too..."

It makes me chuckle.

Usually, I find the National Association of Realtors (NAR) commercials pretty cheesy...

But I liked this one.

It makes people think.

Think of their Realtor...

Ken

A Realtor you can trust.

I think the first time I saw this commercial was during the Super Bowl--or around that time anyway.  I think it's great, too.

I agree Ken it is cheesy but entertaining. It is better than Realtor, real estate is OUR LIFE, like 24 hours. Fence sitting is what is going on right now, so this is probably appropriate. I don't think the ad will sell one more house though. Getting people confidence and back employed will.

Hi Ken... I like that this commercial makes a point without beating folks over the head about it.  Getting folks to think about buying is important... I only wish that they would have mentioned more than interest rates as a reason why now is a great time to buy.

Hi Steve and Debra.  Thanks for reading.

As long as they have the family on the fence, I am happy.  I barely am listening to the spokesperson...

Thanks again,

Ken
