I had some luck in an over 55 community with 3 quick sales after no sales in the previous 12 months. My postcard simply said "results speak for themselves. Is it time to talk". Had a listing within 24 hours of the mailing.

"Contact Me..." and they did. Not every one of them. And not each time. Consistency matters.  A lot.

I had a condo listing and it was cheaper to own than to rent. I sent out post cards to 20 renters in that condo community and got 5 calls

I've had 2 major farming campaigns that each lasted over a year with NO results Peter Mohylsky . I'm not convinced that mailing works in every market. Barbara Todaro is the one to ask about successful campaigns.

My most productive direct mail piece was last year....

"Guess what I did with your neighbor last night...."

Flip card over... "I listed their house for sale".

Each piece is different & each one has a theme so to speak. That varies for each situation.

I never use the word free, don't like people who like the word free as they don't have respect for your time involved in that 'free' market analysis. Complimentary I don't even like.

Each one is different, Peter but, "Thinking of Listing?" or "For a complimentary market analysis..." have worked best for me.

I am doing direct mail but not of the traditional real estate mailer variety. If I told you, well, you know 

I just think too much of you and would like to keep you around the AR water cooler for a long time.

Defining Homes. Defining Lifestyles.

Farmed a high end area/neighborhood of six hundred homes for 18 months with a targeted direct mail campaign.  Great, professonal quality material and content with calls to action at every turn.  I know that consistency is key.  However, in 18 months the only call I ever received was from a crotchety old man who kept threatening to report me to the FEDs for repeatedly sending him junk mail.  Spent major bucks over that 18 month time frame and finally decided it was time to stop the bleeding.  Direct mail does work but I'm gun shy about it now to be sure.  

Cheers!
