Tips for a Successful Open House & Why it remains the best way to get to you know your neighborhood, market, and agent.
Hosting open house is a great way to know the neighbors and offering your services. This is the best time for others in the area to learn about how much their home is worth market value wise. Anna Bielski says this is also a great time for agents to meet people that might end up to being your client.
“On my last open house, I met someone I had not seen in many years. More than likely she says you can build your contacts by having them sign in with their information and turn them into a relationship and clients in the long run.
What do you love about hosting an open house?
Anna: I always have great experiences because they leave the house happy with my giveaways like tote bags, pens, information and flyers about the house they are visiting and its neighborhood. I even had a neighbor gave me a fresh baked loaf of bread which I ate almost half of it by the time the open house was over. There were times I ended up selling the house I held open and sold the buyers house too!
It is the best way for the neighborhood to get to know the market since they can tour the house and compare that to theirs.
How do you attract people to your open house?
Anna: I have fun hosting open houses by making it look like a party with balloons, flags, drinks and cookies. I probably put out between 14 to 18 open house signs. Not only is it good for the agent hosting, it’s also great exposure for the office. I call all these my “signs of invite.”
I also met and made friends hosting open houses.
