Many years ago when I first got into real estate when I received calls from people from out of state for information about housing and amenities in Philadelpha and suburbs I used to mail them a relocation package.
I would write about schools, transportation near by and recreation and mail them a package.
These days it is much easier we can just email them information and provide links to some of the things..
Most people look up information online but they still need a local agent to give them information .
I thought it will be a good idea to have a contest for members to write a post informing someone relocating to their area about why they think their area is a good place to relocate to .
Also write about what type of housing is available , rentals and home prices. Think of what information you would like if you were relocating to a new state.
I always thought they get a lot of snow in Denver. After reading posts by Joan Cox I have learned that it is not so. Infact when it has been cold here in Bucks County they have had spring like weather.
My idea for the challenge is for you to write a post of 150 words with atleast one photo explaining why someone considering a job offer and thinking of relocating should relocate to your area.
This contest can be held any month as people relocate throughout the year but July maybe a good month as many relocate before schools reopen.
When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.
