Get the Most from an Open House

Whether you’re throwing an open house to sell your home or hitting the open-house circuit in hopes of finding a new one, there are ways to maximize your time and get the results you want.

Tips for maximizing attendance at your open house:

  1. The Sneak Peek – The best way to attract visitors is by first showcasing your home online. Post home photos and information along with the times/dates of the open house on real estate websites and social media channels.
  2. Signs Signs Signs – Technology has transformed the real estate industry, but a good, old-fashioned “Open House” sign on the side of the road still works.
  3. Send Invites – The more people who attend your open house, the more desirable your home will appear to potential buyers. Boost attendance by inviting a few friends or neighbors.

Questions to ask when attending an open house:

  1. How long has the property been on the market? A stale house listing is ripe for a reduced offer.
  2. Have there been any offers? This lets you know how much competition there is for the property.
  3. Why are the owners selling? Working with a motivated seller (such as one who’s moving out of state for a new job) gives you leverage when deciding what to offer and when to close.
