When it comes to selling a home, Realtors have some rather savvy tricks up their sleeves to help them get the job done. The real estate market has changed significantly in the last 10 years alone in a variety of ways. According to TheStreet, some of these changes include the swiftness with which homes sell, the increased choosiness of buyers, and the ways in which brokers and agents work with their clientele. If you are currently selling a home or in the midst of looking for a new home, you have surely noticed these trends. Buyers are more likely to look online first and websites such as Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com, reign supreme. People go to the internet first, make their selections, and then ask an agent to show them a property.
The web is a great place to find a home, but nothing can replace seeing the home in person. This is why the open house will always seal the deal. When a potential buyer sees your home in person, hopefully, they will visualize themselves there. Here are some great reasons why an open house could get your home sold, and quickly!
When you set aside a few hours on a weekend day for whomever to stop by without an appointment, chances are you will see increased foot traffic. Many would-be home buyers cannot visit homes during the work day so having an open and flexible viewing schedule on the weekend lets them visit without restrictions.
Secure Private Showings
Open houses are great when it comes to nailing down potential buyers and setting up private appointments. Your home gets seen in a no pressure environment and then interested parties set up a private showing that lets them dig a little deeper.
Your open house may not provide you with an immediate sale, but it could give you and your Realtor some significant feedback. Because open houses tend to draw a crowd, it is a great time to find out what buyers really think about your home. You may discover some changes you need to make or receive affirmation that your style and price are on point!
