Does anyone have any original ideas for marketing their listings?

I was just reading a short article in Realtor Magazine on line about agents hosting 11 joint progressive open houses in the evening with prizes for those who attend all 11 homes, or hosting a cocktail party at their listing.

These seem original and interesting ideas and something different to the normal Sunday Open 1-3 or some such variation. I tried an evening Open a couple of summers ago, close to a field used for baseball, plenty of signs but no traffic. But, I would try it again with more planning and using invitations.

Let me know what original ideas you have used.
