Oro Valley Real Estate - The Value of An Open House
Holding an open house can be a great way to bring attention to your property. Almost half of all buyers use open houses as an information source in their home search.
Open Houses should be an event. Between exposure on social media, numerous websites, and print advertising in the newspaper, open houses are second to none, and are designed to attract big attention to your listing.
Realtors have access to a wide variety of advertising programs to promote your open house and use recognizable open house signs for directions.
You will have a wide variety of people stopping by to learn more about your property, including your neighbors (remember, they may have friends and family who are in the market to buy a home too!) Here are some tips to a successful open house:
Have the house neat and tidy - free of clutter.
Have ample parking available for visitors.
Turn on the lights and open the window coverings.
Refreshments are always a nice touch - especially in the heat of summer!
Keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
Price your property right for your neighborhood and the market.
Plan a good time to get maximum traffic.
Utilize your network by sharing information on your home and open house for agents with buyers looking for just the right place to call home.
Open Houses are a Valuable Marketing Tool.
