Shoe Covers – A Must Have for Your Next Open House

Realtor Shoe Covers - Marketing

Luxury Shoe Covers Shoe Covers - A Must Have for Your Next Open HouseShoe covers are a must have for any open house you may host, or brokers open. Many agents neglect to offer these at the door, and in the end they may have made a big mistake. A mistake that sometimes can cost a LOT of wasted time, and even sometimes a LOT of money spent by the agent.

When hosting an open house, you should always have a supply of these on hand. Most are sized for multiple size shoes, and are very easily slipped over an agents existing shoe. They are somewhat grippy, very durable, and will allow you to continue a smooth flow of visitors in the home. Without them, you may want to ask each guest to remove their shoes, and that request can delay, or even dissuade a visit.

Another great time to have these shoe covers on hand is when you plan to visit homes, especially in inclement weather. Keep a supply in your trunk, and when showing homes present them to your clients to wear into the home for the showing. What an easy way to make a great impression, when you show you care enough for a fellow agents clients home, to protect it from leaves, and dirt being tracked in.

Also, if you really want to impress, bring your own pair of booties to your next listing appointment. Offer at the door to put them on, and watch your potential clients eyes light up. By offering to cover your shoes, you are showing your respect for their home. That will speak volumes in helping them to decide who to hire to list it. It also allows you an unusual way to get the conversation started when you visit.

Remember, when you protect someones home by wearing disposable shoe covers, you not only protect the home, but also protect your reputation.

Do you currently offer these to your clients, or utilize them at your listings? If so, what do your clients think about this great way to protect the home? Post your comments or suggestions below in the space provided.

St Joseph Statue to Sell a House

St Joseph Statue to Sell a House

St Joseph Statue to Sell a HouseThis tool using the statue of St. Joseph for selling a home has been around for years. A Catholic idea, which includes the statue of St Joseph and often times prayer, you or your client don’t have to be Catholic to try it.

When I was trying to sell my home many years ago, I tried this (the market is floundering at the time in my area), and I found myself getting three (3) buyers in the six (6) months that it took to sell the house. No, I’m not saying that is what it made it sell, but maybe it helped?!

Of course, when I was selling that home I also made sure that I staged it correctly, removed clutter, and was very willing and able to show it at a moments notice. I wanted it sold, and I was willing to do whatever it took to help my agent at the time to make it happen. Yet, maybe St. Joseph helped.

These are instructions you should follow on how to prepare to use the statue in your own, or a clients yard, including prayers that you could use.

Amazon offers several types of statues, and some are offered at the links below. They vary in price, and I don’t think that there is a one-size fits all, so you take your pick. Most sets do include instructions, and prayers to say, or use this link.

Just a reminder, I do earn a fee from Amazon.com for any purchase you may make, but it doesn’t cost you a cent more. Just allows me to continue sharing products and ideas to help you sell more homes!
