I hope this helps!
Do not become intimidated by any of these answers.
It amazes me how some Realtors are so clearvoyant that they can tell the true condition of a property without ever stepping foot inside. You would think they would beat down every door that they could find to see the available inventory.
Start by placing a small print add on the previous Friday in the local papers advertising your open house.
Call the papers and see if they have any lesser priced open house specials.
Many newspapers also offer free Internet ads so check around.
Do not be afraid to fax or email a flyer to all tha area R/E offices. Realtors love a free meal so offer some food if your open house is directed to agents.
Do not be discouraged if the turn out is light but remember your only looking for one buyer.
Make sure you include the phrase "broker protected" so that they will know you are offering a commission.
