Tip #1 Meticulous Staging
Stage your house beautifully. Everything should be spotless and clean. The house should be well lit and lightly scented. The overall impression should be that the house is in top notch condition.
Tip #2 Collect Contact Information
To increase the likelihood that a buyer will make an offer on your house, itís important to collect their contact information so you can follow up. Ideally, you want to get their name, phone number and email addresses.
The best way to do this is to have a sign in sheet.
Tip #3 Provide Snacks
Remember that the home buying process is an emotional one. By providing snacks, cookies, water and/or fruit juices, youíre associating a feeling of pleasantness to visiting your house.
Tip #4 Have an Amazing First Impression
As an experienced real estate agent, I can tell you that buyers make their decision on a home within seconds. Itís vitally important that you keep your front yard and the entrance to your home in tip top condition. A plastic bag thatís lying around can literally cost you thousands of dollars.
Tip #5 Have the Price in Mind
Make sure your agent knows what your price range is. This gives your agent to talk about price to qualified buyers on the spot if theyíre interested.
These tips will take you a long way towards having an amazing open house. As always, make sure that youíre working with a real estate agent that really knows what theyíre doing when youíre selling your house.
