Hi Inna -- I think my inventory of open house directional signs is 20 but I am hoping to go through them over the weekend and probably toss a few that have seen better days so I will probably end up with 14-16.
If possible, I try to have them placed in advance of the open house so I can be "fresh" and not feeling rushed prior to an open house event. I have hired someone to place them depending on my schedule but I typically pick up after the events are finished. Open house days can be long. So it's best to make sure they are well-planned -- I also have a schematic where I want the signs placed so I don't receive a call of one left on a street corner.
Hi Inna Ivchenko -
I don't hold Open Houses at all. I do not have anyone hold them for me. I work with buyers and sellers both. As I think about this I really don't see that many Open House signs around Albuquerque. Rio Rancho NM doesn't allow any signs up at all. That is Albuquerque's sister city which I work as well.
Oops, we place the pointer signs out a day before as our county/city is very strict about signs in right of ways.
Inna, they are riders to our signs and we own about four of them. We have two pointer signs each. We use one rider and two pointer signs for an open house.
I don't have any open house signs. I gave up doing them a couple of years ago. They don't work in my market. We've tried everything...including getting agents together from different offices and having an open house Saturday. We offered prizes and had maps. I sat along in an empty house working on my computer.
In the past I put out a few directionals with balloons on each sign. I've been experimenting with using no directionals and I get almost the same turnout. I've been doing different on-line ads and occassional print ads to see what works. I get results from each. The serious buyers see the online and print ads. The people out for a drive see the directionals, stop by and distract me from talking to serious buyers at the open house. No more directionals for me. Serious buyers rarely come from directionals.
I have about 10 tent open house signs and another half dozen of the open house pointers and I use as many as it takes. Some houses only need a few and others have multiple routes and I can use a dozen.
None. I haven't held an open house in 10 years.
I own 25. 5 each of a different style. (this is purposeful)
Each open house will have three signs for each point on the compass.
Obviously if the house is one turn from a busy traveled way. not many signs are required.
I have about 15 - I usually get out about 5 before the open house but should start earlier to get more out - I also want to start delivering flyers too
I have 10-12, but rarley use them. We are only allowed to use 4 for open houses. Some towms don't allow them at all. They drive around and remove any that they see posted.
Since I almost never do an open house, I don't have but one of theose signs.
I own quite a few. I put out as many as necessary to direct traffic to the house from main streets
Not many. I can borrow more if needed.
I have lost count. I use varying numbers depending on the location.
We have loads of them; I lost count. The number used depends on the location traffic patterns, and roads.
None, I don't really hold open houses as well. Other agents from my office do it. You know, right?
