What if during the course of an inspection, you took an extra 10 minutes to walk the block and put a flyer on each home's door? You could briefly describe why an appraisal may be important for them in light of all the news lately about home prices, and how you can help.
Just think - if you put out 20 flyers a day, that would be about 100 per week, and over 400 per month. That's a lot of potential customers that you're touching. And out of those 100 people per week, statistically, how many do you think will be mortgage brokers, attorneys and REALTORS® in addition to consumers who want to know what their house is worth?
If you really want to try something different to drum up business, try this. We've even created a new XSellerate print campaign specifically for this. You can find it under Printable Ads by looking for "Consumer Focused Door Insert". You can use this campaign on actual door hanger templates that have a hole at the top, or insert the full 8 1/2" x 11" version in the door handle. The point is to do a little bit each day to get the word out about your services.
