Open House Tips

Open house tipsAn open house is your time to shine as a private seller. It’s also your home’s time to shine and get sold! Here are some open house tips that will ensure that your open house goes smoothly.

Be Open House Prepared: Your Home

You can spend the morning before an open house making sure your home is in perfect condition – clean, vacuum, remove the clutter, remove personal photographs, light come candles for a pleasant aroma (or bake some cookies), set the table, and make the beds.

The goal is to make your home look clean, open, and simple. Basically, try to make your home look like a brand new model home. This is your home’s time to shine!

Be Open House Prepared: Your Information

Custom Brochures: Your buyers will most likely be looking at a few homes over the weekend. You want to make sure that they receive a custom brochure with your photos and info.

After looking at five to 10 homes, some buyers might forget the special features of your home. You want them to have something tangible that they can take home and look at later.

The ComFree Custom Brochures will have a link to your listing so that buyers can go online and see the photos and info again and again!

Legal Info: Along with the feature sheet, it is a good idea to have your lawyer’s information available for buyers. If they would like to submit an offer, they will need your lawyer’s information. You can attach your lawyer’s business card to the feature sheet and let the buyers know that they can make you an offer and you will review it with your lawyer.

Your Knowledge: On average, buyers will look at 20 to 30 homes before they buy. They will most likely be knowledgeable about what is going on in the neighbourhood so make sure you bring those points up. Mentioning surrounding schools, parks, shopping malls will all bode for you.
