It’s no secret that a great open house should be a part of your marketing strategy for selling your home. But how do you go about planning for a successful open house? First, marketing your event is key. You want to cast a wide net, to reach the largest number of potential home buyers -- but you also want to be sure that you are marketing to qualified, interested buyers.
Once you have a solid marketing strategy in place, it is time to start thinking about the actual open house itself. Check out our recent blog post on the ultimate checklist for open houses, with tips and ideas for buyers, sellers, and real estate professionals.
Use this guide to make sure you have all of your bases covered for a successful open house -- there are ideas for preparing and staging the home for the open house, as well as ideas for promoting your open house and, “day of” tricks of the trade to make the home more appealing to potential buyers. Finally, there are also suggestions for interacting with potential buyers at the open house, as well as how to follow up with buyers and other real estate agents.
But could there be even more that you could do to help ensure a successful open house, as well as set you apart from the other homes for sale? There sure is. Gifts are a great way to set your listing apart from other homes available on the market. Gifts not only welcome your visitors and make them want to stay, they also sell yourself and your brand and make buyers feel more comfortable. Consider these great gift ideas for your next open house.
Even the best and most unique gifts won’t be useful if you can’t get enough visitors to your open house, or attract the right kinds of potential buyers.
