Reasons Sellers Should Consider Having an Open House
Open houses are a great way to show your home to a lot of interested buyers at one time. Open houses have a way of attracting a crowd. For a seller, this can be great news. It only takes one person to result in a successful home sale.
For buyers, open houses are very convenient. Unlike regular viewings, buyers do not have to contact their real estate agent and schedule a time to view the home they are interested in. Instead, they are welcome to drop by without having to do any of the work of setting up an appointment. For sellers, this means that they can attract a wider range of buyers than they would if the home was only available to view by appointment. Yes, you might be attracting more casual buyers, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. A casual buyer might quickly become a serious buyer if they love what they see.
Open houses give sellers a rare opportunity to fully prepare their home for a great showing. The home sale process can be slow one. Depending on the season and the current real estate market, your home may be on the market for days, weeks, or months. Any homeowner would find it difficult to keep their home perfectly clean and ready to show the entire time their home is for sale. When you know far in advance that you’ll be showing your home on a certain day, it is much easier to do your due diligence. Before you show your house, you may want to do the following:
Ensure your front yard looks great. This is the first thing that buyers will see, and you only get one chance to make a good first impression.
Remove personal items like photos, grocery lists, and mail. This will help buyers imagine themselves in your home, rather than feeling like a guest in someone else’s home.
Declutter bathroom and kitchen countertops, clean windows, and vacuum floors. You want your home to be presented in the best possible light, and that means clean.
Add flowers or freshly baked cookies to welcome your guests and make a positive impression.
Reasons Buyers Should Attend Open Houses
It’s easy. Open houses are some of the easiest house hunting encounters you will come by. Unlike a typical viewing, you do not need to set up an appointment to view an open house. You can simply show up to take a look.
Visiting an open house will do more than show you the house. It will give you an impression of the community surrounding the home. Many real estate agents argue that the community you choose is more important to your happiness than the actual house you choose. If you find your dream house, but it is near an industrial neighborhood where you are constantly bothered by the sounds of heavy machinery at work, you may not love living in your dream house as much as you thought you would. When browsing Venice homes for sale, you want to make sure that you are not only looking at the house, but the community where the house is located. When visiting an open house, your journey to the home will do lots to inform you of what the surrounding area is like and whether you’d like to be a part of the community or not.
Often open houses happen on weekends. For most working professionals who work Monday to Friday, the weekend is the perfect time to line up a list of open houses and then visit all of them in one day. For buyers, this can be a very efficient way to work. You can visit a dozen homes in one day and quickly get a sense of whether you are interested in the property or not.
Open houses can be a great time to get a second opinion. If you have had your eye on a house for a while, an open house can provide an opportunity to go back for a second look while bringing a friend. A family member or friend might be able to offer helpful insights that will help you decide if a home is right for you. An open house will give you and your friend plenty of time to stroll through the house and weigh the pros and cons of a specific property.
