Black Friday, is your real estate operation, all those nice priced property listings staged and ready?
With Christmas a month away and the big turkey dinner just a few clicks ahead this week, think about all those famlies.
Warming their hands around a glowing monitor.
Fiddling with the hand held, lap top waiting, killing time at the airport.
Riding shot gun on the open road. Listening to tunes while surfing online before spelling the driver for you turn at the 10 and 2.
Fully stocked property listing selection on your websites, video channels and blog platforms means you are ready.
Even if no one is camped out in front of your real estate office yet to be the first for those door buster special priced listings, free time over the holidays means eyeballs scanning.
Ear drums listening in on the properties you peddle.
Real estate sales are year round because life does not stop.
In fact more leisure time over the holidays is the ideal time to see what's for sale, learn what my place is worth. All those families that are talking about what to do with the estate property now that Mom or Dad or both are gone.
Don't think Black Friday is only a time of big box businesses, small town gift shop items steal all the hoopla attention.
What do you think the other half of all those shoppers is doing? At home, online, using their computers to access information on Maine lake front property.
Dreaming of a waterfront place with the hammock out front next summer but looking now, to be ready to jump on a deal.
A Maine real estate deed wrapped up in pretty paper and bright big red bow under the tree.
Think about what all those folks not holiday shopping til they drop down at the Mall or downtown fighting, arm wrestling with other shoppers for the last of the loss leaders teasers.
Some watching football games, out hunting for freezer wildlife, glued to prarades on television. But the folks not at their regular jobs with free time or delayed traveling and bored out of their minds at public transportatoin facilities.
Those are your shoppers for Black Friday real estate listings.
Tidy up the sites and think of your marketing signal as stocking vending machines of local information, property listings.
Unless you only want to list and sell to local buyers in just your own zip code, neighborhood.
The world is your oyster for real estate marketing and the guys, gals from far away, out of state or the country see the numbers on your price tags and think whoa.
These prices must be misprints, can't be right, are nothing like the cost of property listings where I live now.
Exactly the kid in the candy store feeling of joy, excitement we were hoping would happen around the ho ho home for the holidays time of year.
Holidays are the time buyers decide to make a life change and relocate, retire, move to Maine, somewhere other than where they no longer want to live.
