First off, hire me. I am a BMF and I know my stuff. I will professionally stage and photograph your home, market it EVERYWHERE on the internet and then go out and go door to door promoting it until it is sold.
So what do you do? Go walk your dog and wave. Seriously. Wave at your neighbors. Wave at strangers. Wave at the people who won't make eye contact. The thing is, waving is like smiling. It's contagious. The more you wave, the more your neighbors will wave. Pretty soon you will have helped create a culture of waving in your hood. Think about it, would you want to see people waving at you if you were considering a neighborhood? Would you want people to wave at someone who just looked at your home for sale? Of course!
People buy homes based on feelings. If they get a good feeling about your neighborhood they are more likely to buy there. Which reduces inventory. And days on market. Both of which are good for your property value, whether you are selling or not.
I am a realtor. I like making Haddon Hall a happy place with a culture of waving and I like increasing my own property value. If you drive by me walking my dogs, I will wave at you.
