Q: Denise, I don’t have a big budget for marketing my open houses and I’m relying on them to get buyers. What can I do to get the word out?
A: Craigslist is a great solution, although the need to continually repost the open house ad can be a bit cumbersome. You might want to try an old-fashioned method: door knocking! You can actually knock and say hello to homeowners, and hand them an invitation. Or you can leave it in at their front door (be sure to check with your municipality to make sure they allow this). Community bulletin boards (both “live” and “virtual”) are another great solution!
