A lot of real estate agents struggle getting people to come to their open houses. The reasons for a dead open are pretty straight forward: the house is priced too high, the neighborhood sucks, the marketing is weak, or the house is hideous. Unfortunately, there is not much you can do to lure people to your open other than the traditional ways that everyone knows about. These tactics include sending out flyers to all the neighbors, setting up more signs, promoting it on social media, or catering it with some overpriced, mediocre coffee service.
Tamara Scott, a 34 year-old Seattle based realtor, decided to take a different approach on the issue. She made cookies laced with marijuana. Then, she took some pictures of the edibles and promoted the living shit out of it. Her slogan was, “Come get high on some dank pot cookies and see a beautiful home.” Over seventy people showed up. The house was packed. Everyone was ripped.
One couple got so incredibly stoned that they wrote an offer on the spot. Above asking. Good for you Tamara, good for you.
