Why Is an Open House a Good Idea?

Open House Joe ReedOne of the best ways to sell your property, other than having a great home, is to hold an open house. You love the place, and you want others to love it just as much as you do. Instead of only doing single showings of the home, why not hold an open house so more people will be able to walk through your home. It can get more eyes on your property, and it has the potential to generate quite a bit of interest. You never know; you might even find a couple of buyers who are interested and who will bid against one another and drive up the home price.

Holding an open house is not always easy though, and you should certainly make sure you are using the help of a realtor. First, you have to make sure that you are advertising the open house in the right places. The agent can help you hear. Make sure you are putting the information out on your social networks, and ask people to share. The agent will do the same on his or her networks. You should also list it on sites such as Craigslist. Put up signs, advertise in the paper and put up a sign in your yard that mentions the date and the time of the open house.

Make sure the home is clean and clutter free and it smells great. You might not realize it, but if you are a smoker or have pets, then your home has a smell that others will certainly notice. Neutralize those scents and make sure that you have some baking cookies, candles, or other relaxing scents that will help to improve the visitor’s impression of the property.

With the right planning, your open house will be a success, making it easier to sell your Grand Junction, CO home.
