I now have a seller that said she wished we had done a Black Friday Special. I had a lot of activity over the weekend but no offers.

No, I didn't. But one of the builders in town in a high end community did have a Black Friday sale.

Did you get offers as a result of this discount? $20k is how mush % from the original price would be?

I've never done it, but glad it worked for your sellers. Of course a $20,000.00 drop might have worked on any day. I have a couple listings i would like to try it on, but sellers aren't that anxious to reduce prices.

I haven't done a black friday sale, I'd be worried people would want the same price every day of the year.  Glad that it worked out for you!!

No, I certainly did not present one, nor aware of any in my area.

I've done creative things, but never thought a 'Black Friday' sale would work with real estate. One reason would be the local MLS would require "Ebony Friday' and that just might not get the same traction. What resources did you use besides the MLS?

Good luck with the CYBER MONDAY offer. Keep us posted.
