Pokemon is something that us 90's children will always hold near and dear to our hearts. For many of us, it was a combination of video games, tv shows, playing cards, clubs, and whatever else we would bug our parents to let us do that related to Pokemon. It had the attention of millions of kids worldwide and generated massive amounts of revenue.
But then it stopped. All of a sudden it wasn't cool anymore, and our teenage obsessions moved onto bigger and better things.
Fast forward to today, and that picture has been turned around 180 degrees. Not only are the children of old now captivated once again, but the parents that would let Pokemon be a babysitter are now active too. In less than a week, Pokemon has taken over Twitter, Snapchat, and Tinder, done more to combat childhood obesity than any other initiative, helps introverts become extroverts as they make new bonds over the game, and even help small businesses get a leg up in the community.
So how can we use this massive trend to our advantage when it comes to buying and selling homes? Let me explain.
You need people to see your house in order to sell it. The majority of people will start their search online, however in almost all cases the client will need to see the house before making an educated decision. If you have yet to see the masses of people gathered around locations where you can catch Pokemon, you know where I'm going with this. Imagine that traffic at an open house?
According the the Pokemon information, it costs around $4.70 for an 8-pack of individual 30 minute "lures" where you people can come to your location and catch a Pokemon. So if you were having a 2 hour open house, for a whopping $2.35 you can make your open house a way-point on one of the most active apps ever. The added bonus of being able to included their Poke-addiction in daily activities will surely be a welcome addition to the open house hunt, but it will also bring in people who may have zero interest in your house. And that's okay! Don't forget they have friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and tons of other connections that could end up being the new owner of your home.
