Internet internet internet.
I have used radio in the past with very poor results and don't do that anymore.
I do limited print ads in the real estate journals, and zero newspaper.

All three. Put most on the internet and on very, very local signs. Radio, not so much because of the large geographic spread. As for internet, make sure your search terms and/or search area are specific to the 17837 zip code in order to maximize relevant hits.

Good Morning Steven:

Personal signage is great also for marketing your custom home or land sales. Prior to building our home 2 years ago, my husband and I spent many days driving around the area for which we wanted to reside. We came across a semi-large custom made sign by a builder advertising his available lots and homes. We called the builder from the number displayed on this sign and today we reside in his custom built home. Rhonda Inkrote - REALTOR, Villager Realty, Inc. - Lewisburg, PA

More people search for homes on the Internet than any other place. That is the best place to start. You may also want to advertise in some sort of print format whether it be a newspaper or a homes magazine. Select a homes magazine that is distributed free to customers. Select the Sunday section of the newspaper or the day of the week that homes are featured in your town.
