    Here is what criteria I went with. Homeowner, property value of $150,000+, 50 and older and demographics according to zip code. I am wont (lol) to mail 5000 postcards, but in the 2 zip codes that I gave, only 3500 residents came up. So now I have the option to give different zip codes for the other 1500 residents...or change my criterias....might go to the age 45+ or lower the property value. I posted a thread on this very subject a few weeks ago for anyone who has went with mailing list and go very few responses.

    walker-talker makes the point, make sure your demographics are narrowed well. I usually use 40+ for age simply because many here are two income families, both work and many have newer homes.
