How to Get the Most From Your Open House - Tips for Agents
As we continue the shift of the real estate market, many real estate agents are trying to figure out where are they going to meet more potential buyers and sellers.
Is it going to be online? Is it going to be print advertising? Will it be mailers? Is it picking up the phone and making calls?
Well, one of the tried and true methods that will ensure you do have the opportunity to meet potential buyers and sellers is by holding open houses.
If you are an agent, open houses do not cost you too much, but it's a great way to not just feature the home you're sitting in but also meet potential buyers that may be interested in that home or meet sellers who may be considering selling their property in the future.
But there is one major mistake that keeps popping up time and time again, and that is, not having enough Open House signs. To have a successful Open House, you need people to come in.
To get their attention, you need to make sure you have Open House signs on every corner, on every road leading in, and then out in front of the property you're doing the Open House, you need to have multiple signs, multiple ways to get people's attention to ensure they come in to see that open house, which ensures you will meet some new clients.
