An open house can be a great way to get the word out about your property. Especially in a more seller-focused market, it can be a great way to promote your property and let it stand out in the crowd. Although you are bound to attract plenty of curious neighbors and other lookie-loos, you'll also get plenty of qualified buyers and first-time buyers just looking to get in the market.
Open houses are also generally a more laid-back affair. Many fully qualified buyers will be attracted to this low-key environment, where they can tour a property with time constraints or other added sales pressure.
What Can I Do Help Make My Open House Successful?
Is there anything you can do as a seller to make your open house more effective?
The main goal of any open house, or private showing for that matter, is to allow visitors to imagine living in the home. To achieve this, you'll want to make the home as warm and inviting as possible while removing any personal items that may destroy the buyer's illusion. With that being said, here are a few quick tips:
Get Your Home In Tip Top Shape
Not everyone can afford a professional home stager, but you can at least ensure your home is as clean as possible. This means the place must be kept spotless: ceiling fans dusted, baseboards cleaned and stainless steel polished.
Go through the home and try to put yourself in the mindset of a potential buyer. You can even take it a step further and bake some muffins or cookies right before the open house, allowing the warm, inviting aromas to waft throughout your home.
Cleaning is a no-brainer, but removing personal items isn't something that everyone would think of.
Stashing your personal items is a great idea simply as an anti-theft measure, but its also an important step in allowing potential buyers to see themselves in your home. Making your home as appealing as possible to as wide an audience as possible is the key to finding a buyer quickly. The truth is not every potential buyer out there will share your tastes, and personal photos and knick knacks often serve to destroy the potential home buyer illusion.
Disappear From Your Home
You may be curious to know about the potential buyers coming to your open house, but it's important to let them tour the home undeterred. The home owner's presence can often serve to only make visitors uncomfortable. It's almost always better to let your REALTOR® do their job without your input.
