One of the more challenging parts of selling your home is letting people know that your home is on the market in the first place. You will need to get the attention of those looking to move into your neighborhood in order to find buyers. While many go online to find a home, there are more traditional methods that also work:
One of the most basic ways to draw attention to your home is a great sign. The sign needs to be very visible and needs to clearly state that your home is for sale. The good news is that "for sale" signs are very standard and most home buyers will be able to quickly identify your sign. However, it is important to know the types of signs that your homeowner's association might allow. For example, there are some homeowner's associations that only allow a sign in the window. It also never hurts to talk to a neighbor to ask what he or she feels about your sign.
The Local Paper
It may still be useful to place an advertisement in the local paper. There are some individuals who still read papers. If you believe your home is more likely to appeal to older Americans, it is especially a good idea to place an ad in a local paper. Most ads are placed in the Sunday paper.

If you are planning on having an open house, make sure to create materials that can be given to everyone who visits. Make sure to print out brochures, flyers, and post cards. Many of your visitors may see several homes and you will want them to remember yours, especially if yours is the first they looked at. By including photos that highlight the best parts of your home, these pictures can help remind visitors of your home and make it more likely that they will choose it.
Not all locations are suitable for an open house. You can always try holding an open house and not hold anymore if no one arrives. Usually, only high traffic areas will bring a lot of visitors. However, if you advertise your open house enough, you may be able to attract others who are looking to buy a home. It is also a good idea to invite your neighbors because they may have friends who want to move close to them.
