Should I do open houses?

That all depends on you. Open houses differ from scheduled showings in that open house traffic has not been pre-qualified, as such, while they may really love your home and would love to purchase it, they may not be qualified to do so.

OPEN HOUSE CHECKLIST:

  • Place Open House signage in high volume, key intersections that are the most visible to traffic
  • Secure DIY balloons out in front of your property
  • Post the Open House details on your personal and local community social media platforms
  • Make your home warm and welcoming (refer to our “Selling 101” article)
  • Remove all vehicles from the driveway
  • Open all the drapes, blinds and window coverings
  • Turn on every light in the house, except lights that produce noise, such as exhaust fans
  • Place your pets in a secure and safe environment (on or off the property)
  • In a visible area inside, place provided property fliers and your DIY Real Estate NOW! Agent’s cards

Optional DIY Real Estate NOW! Ambiance Tips:

  • Turn on soft music on each floor
  • Use a lightly scented candle or plug-in
  • Place fresh cut flowers in a vase (with mild or no scent)
  • Provide small bottles of water and freshly baked cookies (without nuts, particularly peanuts)
