Time to Order Your Real Estate Christmas and Holiday Cards

Holiday Greeting Cards for Business

The holidays are a perfect time for a small business, Realtor, or real estate office to give thanks. It’s also a great time to send a gift, or perhaps a greeting card to your clients, customers, vendors, and valued business associates. Share the spirit, and happiness of the season.

Below is just a small selection of the many outstanding greeting cards available from Amazon.

For your business you can choose cards, ranging from the traditional-styled Christmas card, to perhaps a more non-denominational holiday, or seasons greeting themed card.

If you should want to offer greetings, not reflecting the December 25th holiday, you could also choose to send a card for any of the other surrounding holidays. Perhaps a card for such holidays as New Years, Kwanzaa, or Hanukkah?

No matter which style of card you choose, or holiday you choose to share in celebration, and any greeting if chosen wisely, will delight any recipient I am sure.

Why Balloons are Still Effective at Open Houses

Tried and True Ways to Make Your Listing Stand Out

Open House Banners - Real Estate Marketing

There are still a lot of reasons that Realtor’s host open houses for their listings. For newer agents they are still an effective way to get buyers.

Open Houses also give the selling agent great exposure for their listing, and their marketing plan. Also, sellers love them!

So, you are having an open house, should you use balloons to market it? The short answer is yes, and these are some of the reasons why.

One of the best reasons is that balloons are inexpensive. Many brokers provide them to their agents for free, and even if they don’t they can be had quite easily.

The key of course is how to get the helium you will need to have them aloft. That is not so easy, and even myself I am always at odds on trying to figure it out.

Usually you can buy more decorative balloons already filled with helium at your local grocer, or florist, but then it can get expensive. Most florists are not open on Sunday’s when most open houses happen, and grocery store floral departments don’t always have just “normal” balloons.

Another reason to continue to use balloons is that it shows your sellers that you are making an effort to bring as many people as possible to the open house. Your sellers see them before and after the event, and yes they take notice!

I know myself when I see them late on a Saturday or on a Sunday, I take notice and I even know what they are there for. Sometime I will even veer off course, just to see what the listing is. Yes, they are that effective.

The best reason for continuing to use balloons when you host an open house is that it brings traffic. What they do, when placed properly and in the right locations, is they draw attention. Something about them bouncing in the wind, makes a passerby take notice, and hopefully stop to take a look.

On open house day(s), use them generously, and use them often. Put them at every major intersection, and have several on the signage of your open house.

Have extra balloons? Use those as gifts for the kids. However don’t share before the parents tour, since they do distract.

Instead share balloons with the kids upon them leaving the house. It will be a fond memory for the child, and the parents will remember you, and perhaps your listing. Perhaps remember you and your listing over others they may have met, or seen.

So, do you use balloons in your open house marketing? Have you seen them to be effective, or not? Do you use them on all types of property you have listed, or only on certain price points or types? Post your experiences below.

The Document Folder the Perfect Closing Gift

Less Expensive than some Closing Gifts, but Just as Thoughtful

At a loss at what to give your clients at closing? Whether they be buyers or sellers, many suggest that you should always give them something to remember you, and to remember the transaction you did with them.

Of course, there is an equal amount of industry professionals who will argue that excellent service is what the Realtor, or real estate professional brings to the table, so why give a client a gift. I will leave that discussion for a later date.

Also, another way to look at it, it gives you a chance to give them something at the end of the closing, and offers a good segue to thank them for their business at the same time.

Plus, many of the available document folders on the market have a business card holder, so you can put your card right there. In the future, when they sell or buy, it may increase the odds of them calling you first.

There are various types on the market, from the less expensive vinyl, to the much more expensive leather, or leatherette. Personally I stick to the vinyl like this one here.

Of course no matter what you choose, it will almost always be well received. Some of the better prices that I have seen have been not from my local Board, but instead through Amazon. Of course in most cases shipped free, direct to your home or office.
