Great Tools for your next open house

At a Sales Meeting last week I was talking about our new GPS HomeSearch™ program and an Associate mentioned it would make a great conversation starter with visitors to an Open House.  What a great idea!  We built on that idea and suggested an agent might want to get a plexi-glass “take-one” stand at Office Mart to put copies of our new GPS HomeSearch flyer out on the kitchen counter as a reminder to the agent to talk about it…demonstrate it…and have the visitor leave with a copy of the personalized flyer to remind them how to access the GPS HomeSearch tool.  We all agreed today’s Open House visitors would love to learn about a high-tech tool like that.

If you’re not familiar with our GPS HomeSearch program, simply go to Carpenter’s website at using your smartphone and click on the “Find Nearby Properties” button at the top of the page.  By magic, your smartphone will show you all the homes for sale sorted by the nearest homes to you within a one mile radius.  Carpenter is the only local real estate firm to offer this tool.

In addition, another great idea is to have personalized copies of our “6 Reasons Today May Be the Best Time in 40 Years to Buy a Home” report on display in your next Open House.  This report outlines the 6 reasons your Open House visitor needs to become a homeowner TODAY!  The report is available to Carpenter agents through our Intranet and contact management system, i-Contact, and can be fully customized to the agent’s identity.  And like the GPS HomeSearch flyers, it can be displayed in one of those clear plexi-glass holders on the kitchen counter.  Another great “value-added” conversation starter.
