Hot enough for ya?

I do enjoy when writers use Active Rain as a resource and quote our illustrious members.  Very nice.

I remember, many years back when I first started in this business, the National Association of Realtors had conducted a study that showed that approx 15% of our buyers originate from the yard sign.  I assumed that number had decreased over the years.  It's nice to see, at least based on the NAR profile quoted in this article, that 35% of buyers still find the yard sign "useful".

Giving impression all you need is a real estate yard sale is what FSBO's already think. With internet, expanding your audience online, it's way way more than just a sign to get front row tickets to a real estate closing these days Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400.

Glad you, others around the AR campus got some press ink though.

Where buyers found the home they purchased: 

  • Internet: 52%
  • Real estate agent: 28%
  • Yard sign/open house sign: 4%
  • Friend, relative, or neighbor: 8%
  • Home builder or their agent: 6%
  • Directly from sellers/Knew the sellers: 3%
  • Print newspaper advertisement: less than 1%

Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 I wish I would have taken a picture of every yard sign I'd designed and used. I was always experimenting and improving. I'd like to add that when it comes to yard signs size does matter.

As for using sign, it is still a tool in our toolbox. It's not the only one but you never know when it's the right one!
