Thank you for reminding me I have a blog post to work on for a closing that we just had! :) I also do postcard mailings, big nice postcards. You could also do a press release if your area has a small local hometown paper.

     Blast it all over the Internet.   Send out cards.  

    In the past, I also did door-knocking in that area and handed out "Just Sold" flyers with the price and details of the sale on them.   I don't door knock anymore, but it's something you might want to consider.

Press the flesh!  Go out and door-knock 10 homes in each direction and both sides of the street.  Homeowners LOVE to know the new sales value in the neighborhood and they will love that you sold the home!

Coal,

In most market places, a "Just Sold" postcard works.  That being said, I would suggest that you do some research to see if it will work in your neck of the woods.  A

Many agents in my market include "SOLD" listings in with their "For Sale" listings advertisements.  Certainly blogging about sales is good too.

If you engage in success theater and vaninty metrics, you have NO HOPE of seperating yourself from the sea of smiley faces.

Serously, think about it. A homeowner getting a Just Sold postcard. It misses EVERY intent of marketing.

I would suggest when the house is sold and owner gone this is the message to deliver "Barack Obama say's 'Good bye dear friends..." Read the rest of the family message to you at "GettingOutBeforeTheShipSinks.com"

'I never thought getting out of town could be so easy. Annette was real Pro," POTUS.
