Benefits of an Open House

The benefits of open houses have been debated in the real estate community for years now. While it’s true that most homes are sold by private showings, there are good reasons for holding open houses.

The first criticism of the open house is the lookie loo. So what? The point of an open house is to get people into your home. They might know others that are looking for a home, or sometimes they don’t realize they are ready to move until they see what they want.

We want that special house to be yours.

So what about the argument that real buyers will arrange a showing with their own agent and that makes the open house unnecessary? But more often than not, those showings are on weekends. If you are holding an open house, those buyers and their agents will have the opportunity to meet your agent. No one will be able to showcase your home as well as your agent.

Finally, there are those buyers who do not want to talk with an agent. Open houses allow them to get into your home and see it. The more people that come through your listing the better your chance of selling, period! Open houses are one of the easiest ways to get local prospects into your home.

When you're preparing your home for market, it makes sense to assess what improvements can be made so that you're not leaving money on the table at closing that you could have gained back by increasing the value of your property.

But what are those improvements? By the time you sell, the window of opportunity to make strategic improvements is small, and you may be limited by market conditions and time constraints.
