The best spring advertisement I ever saw for housing was back the early 1980’s while living in New Zealand. Each Spring, hundreds of thousands of Daffodils burst into their bright yellow colors. On the bottom of the front page Christchurch’s The Press was a small block advertisement that stated:

If you are considering selling this year, get it listed as quick as possible.
