How to sell a house? Have a tree party!

How to sell a house? Have a tree party!

July 29th, 2012 in News
Bill Miller stands next to a huge oak tree at 3711 State Road HH west of Fulton that will have a Robin Hood birthday party Tuesday evening. Miller and his wife want to sell a new house nearby and hope the party will attract buyers for the house.

Selling a house in a tight housing market might sound like a challenge.

But not to Susan Miller of New Bloomfield.

Admiring an old oak tree near the newly constructed energy-efficient home, Miller thought it looked just like a tree from Sherwood Forest in 13th century England where Robin Hood lived at Nottinghamshire.

"Let's have a Robin Hood Party for the tree," Miller said. "We can attract a lot of people who will see the house and maybe sell it."

On Tuesday from 6-9 p.m., that's just what Miller plans to do. She started sending out invitations to a lot of people and the response has been overwhelming.
