I used to, but they do take a lot of maintenance, and the info can easily be posted on the net these days so they are not that necessary anymore.

I don't  Sign riders where they can text for info works better.  I find filers disappear with neighbors or kids.

We do a lot of condo listings down here and we can't put up signs, info boxes, or have an open house. But on the houses we get, I do put up the info boxes to help weed out the lookers.

I prefer to field the calls. Otherwise all I know is someone picked up a piece of paper and I have no chance to "sell" them if they don't call. If I have a client who insists on an info box--I give it to them with 100 flyers and say if after weeks they are all still there, I'm pulling the box. If after 2 weeks they are all gone and no one has called me, I'm pulling the box. Besides, I have an 800 number people can call and I can call capture. Why keep killing trees?

I always use info boxes. 

The response rate have been EXCEPTIONAL!

Of course the purpose of my info box may be different than what an agent would think obvious.

What is so cool about my sheets is as other agents have observed their buyer as they pulled them from the box is hearing the agent say say, "I can't do that."
