NY Times has an article about how advertisements today are getting more and more risky, and they are not for beer, lipsticks or condoms but for REAL ESTATE. I have seen advertisements along this line. In Florida, I know that there is a billboard with an agent posing on a beach in her bikini! NY Times states that "Selling real estate these days means selling a lifestyle, according to industry professionals. People are “looking for a narrative in terms of how they’re going to live,” said Jasmine Mir, the senior vice president of the Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. The aim, she said, is to match buyers’ “lifestyle expectations by showing them imagery that will allow them to imagine an exciting and appealing lifestyle living in the building.”
The more and more I see day in and day out - I become astonished. I mean - I KNOW SEX SELLS - but I have never had someone pay $500k for a house so he can spend sometime with me. I don't think that if I talk sexy a man will buy a house from me - just because I am flirting with him. I would think that I would just be opening up a can of worms and opening the door for some other undesirables to venture in. I guess you can call me stupid that I want to have people refer me or use me (and NOT in that fashion- I mean USE as in LIST or BUY with me), because I KNOW what I am talking about - not because I think I look great in my bikini clad advertisement.
