The day you close on a home and hand buyers their keys is a momentous occasion. It’s a huge milestone for clients to own their own home. So, why not send a greeting card to celebrate? Not only is following up with clients after a sale a wonderful way to stay connected, but it’s also an easy way to generate new leads.
What Is a Housiversary?
A housiversary marks the anniversary of the day you bought or moved into a new home. While many homeowners celebrate this memorable event annually, real estate agents also use the opportunity to ask for referrals.
This date is especially exciting for first time buyers as it required a large investment of both time and money. Brokers and agents can use this milestone occasion to offer encouragement and well wishes, while also reminding clients that you love referrals!
Why Send Home Anniversary Cards?
Real estate agents rely heavily on referrals to grow their business and make additional sales. In fact, 80% of all real estate transactions come from repeat customers or their referrals. Therefore, sending a housiverary card is a great opportunity to remind clients of your services and resolidify those relationships.

How to Create Your Own Message
Phrasing messages to clients can be difficult. However, there is an easy formula you can use when crafting your notes. Following are some guidelines to assist you in writing meaningful correspondence to both prospects and customers:
Make an Impact with Home Anniversary Cards
While the messages you include inside your personalized greeting cards matters, you can expand on the impact your words have with past clients. Our favorite way to do this is through photos and a surprise! Not only is it easy to do with Minute Mail Gifts, but we also mail your greeting cards and gifts for you using a real stamp!
Our greeting card service for businesses and real estate agents provides free card personalization. Part of this includes the ability to add multiple photos to the inside of the cards you make.
If you find you’re constantly crunched for time, you can create a card on the day you close on a house. Design a card on the spot using your smartphone and either add a photo from the listing or a snapshot of the happy homeowners standing in front of their new house. Then schedule the card to be mailed to the new owners a year from the date.
Alternately, if you’re great at organizing and planning, you can send a card with both a before photo (showing the home on the day it sold) and an after photo (with a quick snapshot of how it looks now.) Create a template now, then save it to use later. Just add the final shot when you’re ready to mail the card.
Include a Fun Surprise to Mark the Occasion
Minute Mail Gifts strives to go above and beyond by also offering unique and fun surprises that are automatically mailed with your homeversary cards. So, there’s no need to shop for a card and a gift. This not only saves you time, but also makes a great impression on the recipient.
After you customize your home anniversary cards with a personal message and photo, select one of our gifts to include when it’s mailed. Our collection of surprises are better than a gift card. They stick around long after your message has been received as a keepsake that highlights your relationship. Best of all the card, personalization, and gift are mailed directly to each customer for around $5 each!
Now that you have an easy way to commemorate home buyers’ first home anniversary, learn how you can also use our service to send pop by gifts for REALTORS®.
