I was speaking with someone the other day and he had some good ideas about creative places to post your house for sale. This can work in reverse as well.
He said that he is having good luck with hospitals. His thinking behind this was that people who are there are experiencing a life changing event a lot of times. He really likes to place them on the boards around the maternity wards because people having kids are adding to their family and chances are they need more space. He also said that you can find people who will sell their house because they have outgrown it by adding to their family.
Another place is wedding shops. He said that he hasn't had any problems with the shops letting him post the ads. It is the same thinking as above. People who are getting married may be looking to move out of an apartment or a house they are renting and now purchase one because they have joint income.
Another place is grocery stores. The thinking here is that people shop at a store that is close to them. They would probably want to live in the same area because it is close to work or family or whatever their daily habits are that take them to that store. So that can be a good place as well.
The best one that I thought which was kind of reverse thinking is when you are selling a property get the neighbors involved. They know people and in a lot of situations they may know someone who wants to live close to them- family, friends, co-workers who knows.
I just wanted to throw those quick ideas out there. Let me know what you have found luck with in regards to posting flyers.
