Are flyers needed for my listing? Where do I obtain flyers?
We can send you the client view from the MLS that can be utilized as a flyer or you can use the our listings portion of our website to print a flyer in mass quantities. (at no cost) The important thing to keep in mind is that the MLS will not allow anyone to use the Agent Detailed version of the MLS as a flyer. The reason being… the MLS wants to protect private information from being leaked to the public. Examples of private information would be gate codes, alarm codes, etc…
Benefit of flyers today in 2017:
The thing to keep in mind is that 99% of home buyers are using smart phones. When I drive by a property myself and want to know additional information about the property, I simply type in the address and go to Zillow, Redfin, etc… where I can view the price, countless photos, etc… I can’t remember the last time I even looked for a flyer at a property myself. As more and more people become comfortable with technology, flyers are becoming less and less useful. A well done flyer might contain 3-4 photos…whereas, I can scroll through a 100 HD photos right on my phone while sitting outside of a property.
I think their can be a slight benefit to putting something in the hand of certain home buyers. Something they can feel and touch… but that benefit is incredibly small.
