Newspaper advertisements are limiting:
- Reality is this, we don’t get phone calls on newspaper and magazine ads, we do get calls on our advertising efforts on the Internet, listing your home on the MLS and sign calls
- Newspapers are single use, once done with them the consumer throws them out
- Newspaper advertising is expensive and results in short ads that tend to lack the ability to grab the reader’s attention
- Serious buyers are not looking in the paper with today’s technology at their finger tips, there is a National statistic that shows about 80% of buyers are looking online when searching for a house.
