Open House days…

September 30th 2015

Holding an open house day to sell a property is becoming a more popular approach to selling a home. If you are unfamiliar with what is involved with an open house day then it is basically when a seller in association with an estate agent such as Goodfellows opens up their home to potential buyers over the course of specific day or weekend.
 
So what are the benefits of having an open house day?
 
Open house days can create a real buzz around a property, just the sheer fact that there are lots of people looking around a home at the same time can result in a potential buyer feeling more impetus to put in an offer, and in some cases a higher offer than they would have normally made.
 
An experienced estate agent such as Goodfellows will have a large mailing list of potential buyers, as well as potential property developers.
 
Normally hosting an open house day will increase the likelihood of achieving slightly more than the guide price of a property.
 
Open house days are great for potential buyers who work in the week, as they usually always take place at weekends.
 
From the vendors perspective they are a great way to ensure that their home is beautifully presented for a limited duration, which can be a bonus if sellers have young children or pets.
