Your listing agent should send ” just listed” postcards to surrounding homes which serves many purposes. By letting the neighborhood know of your intention to sell your property, it gives them a chance to tell friends. Many times, neighbors know of people who wish to move into the neighborhood. Also, in case the neighbors were considering selling their home, it gives them current information on the value of homes in their area. As well as what comparable homes are selling for. When your home sells quickly, it also gives them the name of an agent who can get the most money for their home.
