When it comes to selling a home one of the most important things is the open house and how you present your home. Learning how to stage your home, how to showcase the parts of your home that are more desirable, and taking the time to make sure your open house is as effective as possible is a must.
What is an Open House or Property Tour?
An open house or a property tour is a chance for people, even those without appointments, to come and view your home or property with no strings attached. Generally, your agent will set a time and a date and within that time frame, anyone can come and view your home or property. They can ask questions, tour your home, tour the land or surrounding buildings, and they can find out what the property has to offer and whether or not they may be interested in it.
This is a great opportunity as it does not require interested buyers to make an appointment and it can open up the chance to show off your home to far more people. A great property tour can drum up interest in your home or property and can get people talking and even potentially thinking about buying your property.
What Makes A Good Open House?
When it comes to a great open house that drums up tons of interest there are a few things you can do to help. In most cases, it is best if the homeowner is not in the home during the open house. If you are, you should not be pushy and should not try to engage those touring unless they ask questions or engage you. Keeping the space clean and free of clutter is another great help.
You should also make sure that your children are not home and that if you have pets you either keep them up during the open house or you take them somewhere else to make sure they are safe and that they are not going to get around the people touring. You should also work to make sure that the aspects of the home that are selling points are showcased. If you stated that the property has a great yard for families, you should have the yard tidy to reflect that.
