Read about the Flag House
One of my strengths is marketing unique homes for example, the Kent home that was painted like an American flag after 9/11 and became a a local and National icon. The very qualities that make a property unusual can become its strongest selling point. Here's an article by Jackie Craven describing my strategy:
"An outrageous color scheme posed a dilemma for Bonnie Bevans, a sales associate with William Raveis Real Estate in Kent, Conn. Her listing, a century-old wood frame house, would have been traditional if the owner had not painted red, white, and blue stripes across the façade. The flag theme continued inside with striped floors and a star-spangled kitchen.
Known in the community as the Flag House, the property was startlingly patriotic. But wouldn’t it sell faster if it were painted white? Bevans used the question as a way to stage a creative publicity event. She invited townspeople to vote on whether to keep the stars and stripes. As the ballot circulated at local shops, the Flag House became a hot topic. Bevans fueled the excitement by attiring herself in flag motifs. “I even went to Wal-Mart and got red, white, and blue fringe for my jeans,” Bevans says. Because the event was quirky and amusing, major newspapers like the Hartford Courant and the Chicago Tribune picked up the story.
The home’s highly visible location made it especially appealing to prospective buyers who wanted to open a furniture store. However, they weren’t swayed by the fanfare over the flag. Instead, they opted to have the house repainted. Still, Bevans says she isn’t sorry she created a stir. “The amount of press the Flag House received was a blessing!” Bevans is now using similar marketing techniques—dressing in Victorian garb and hosting fried-chicken picnics—in the village of Roxbury, Conn., to draw attention to her listings there, which include an 1830s farmhouse and antique tobacco-processing barn. A property that’s truly unique is worth more than dollars and cents. Even the most detailed appraisal can’t fully express the value prospective buyers place on qualities like originality and creativity. “Every house has its own special features,” says Bonnie Bevans, who listed the Flag House in Kent, Conn. The bottom line? Capitalize on the things that make the property especially unusual. “Once you find those special features, they will help sell the house,” Bevans says.
