I received a call from a very frustrated potential buyer on yesterday. They were very interested in properties on certain roads to the north of Great Yarmouth and had been in the area over the weekend looking at property. They had returned home to find an email from me with a new instruction we had listed on the Thursday. As this property didn’t have a board and as they had no access to emails when in Great Yarmouth, they have now had to book a viewing for this coming weekend and make a trip back. If this property had a board it may well have been viewed and bought by this couple on Saturday just gone.
For sale boards are important marketing tools. Yes they are great for agents too but that is not the sole reason for having them. Also viewers from boards can be the most motivated you get as they may have been waiting for a property to come for sale on a road for some time.
