Real Estate is a tuff business. We REALTOR’s have to find a way to separate our selves from the competition, make our selves more noticeable. This is very important when you have a listing. You want to make sure that people come by your open house and when they leave you want to make sure your house is the one they remember. Any good agent will go the distance to make their listings memorable, thats just part of the business, but how far is to far? Some people use food to draw in agents and buyers, some use botox and thai massage as incentive. Take a look at this article from the LA Weekly. Last weeks open house for an $8.5 million dollar mansion had poolside thai massage girls, Botox giveaways, a food truck and even Audis for you to test drive. Is this going to far? Is this appropriate since we are in the middle of a recession? LA Weekly seemed to think this was pretty ridiculous and I cant say I disagree but what do you guys think? Let me know! Id love to hear from you guys.
