Although online listings are usually the first-stop for potential home buyers, there’s nothing quite like stepping into a home. Not only do open houses provide the opportunity for home buyers to get a feel of the home, but an open house increases its exposure which increases the likelihood that an open house attendee may be the potential buyer!
- Additional Exposure: Open houses are a way to attract people who are driving around. They will see a sign for an open house and pop in to take a tour. And the more people you get into a home, the more chances one of them could be a buyer.
- Exploring the Neighborhood: Having an open house also allows potential buyers to drive around the neighborhood to determine if it will fit their needs.
- Selling the Dream: While online listings are typically a buyer’s first stop to view a home, an open house allows them to get to know the home on a more personal level, imagine their lives there, picture their belongings in the home and view the home in its entirety.
