Benefits of an Open House
To have an open house or not to: That is the question.
In my experience, this type of marketing can only help sell your home.
Over 75% of my listings resulted in a sale from buyers who came to my open house.
It’s always nice to have a personal touch with some refreshments.
This can help engage your potential buyers in conversation and keep them around a bit longer. The longer they stay, the more they can picture themselves living in the home.
So keep up the good work when you’ve been busy baking those apple pies and cookies.
Nosy neighbors are also a useful tool in selling real estate.
They are always welcome and know of people that want to move into the neighborhood.
All visitors can provide helpful feedback in selling your home faster. It’s nice to have an objective eye see something you may have overlooked.
You want someone who’s approachable, friendly and knowledgeable about the marketplace to help represent your home.
Your realtor should be warm and welcoming to all visitors and thank them for coming to the open house.
It may be an outdated custom to some; but the bottom line is that open houses work!
