Does Print Advertising Still Work? It SOLD this home in 1 day!

We've all but phased out print advertising due to the high cost and low level or return. Many of you have probably done the same and shifted more toward online advertising etc. Needless to say, when the opportunity to have one of our listings featured on a recent issue of the "Find a Home" Magazine at a reduced rate surfaced, we were still a little hesitant. We have been advertising via a full page color ad in the magazine for years and activity from the ad has hit an all time low while activity from our website and online marketing has hit an all time high. However, we took the plunge and gave it a try. Would you believe that a buyer called the day after the magazine hit the rack and purchased the home? This home had been in the local MLS for 28 days at the same price, with the same pictures and very little action! This buyer had not seen the home online and bought it because of the beautiful picture on the front page! Could there still be hope for print advertising? What began as a slow listing sold relatively fast- 29 days!
Some details about the home below:

Location: Northwest Pensacola

McGuire, the team mascot!

Although not an official member of the team, there is no doubt this guy is a friend of everyone at the office. His name is McGuire and he is a 1 year old Kerry Blue Terrier. In public, Mcguire is often confused for a giant schnauzer, or even the dog on the local Toyota commercials! (which is a giant schnauzer) While he is neither of those, he is an amazing companion and friend to everyone- especially the TSB staff. I just wanted to take a minute to introduce him to all of you as he has become the unofficial team mascot and will soon be appearing on our website and various advertisements. Keep an eye out for this large friendly pooch and be sure to say hello if you see him “out and about”. He has been known to frequent dog parks, the local PetSmart and go on late night walks with me.
