Most companies have discovered how invaluable social media is for their business, and real estate professionals are no exception. Big Block Realty wants all our agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success. Successful real estate agents are making great use of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and a variety of other social media platforms to reach out to potential customers and generate new leads.
Successful real estate agents also know how to pull off a good open house. We all have our own personal little touches we bring to any showing or open house to make it more appealing to visitors. While most of us know the basics: staging, cleanliness, owners and pets out of the picture, we can all stand to hear some new ideas. Here’s a few to consider.
Closets- A big selling point for many people is the amount of closet space in a house. Get your clients to empty them out to maximize space. You want the visitors to see what their getting unencumbered by holiday decorations, camping gear, and old exercise equipment.
Blow out the Candles- Some people are turned off by scented candles and other air freshening devices. Ensure that the house is clean and if necessary, clean the floors or shampoo the carpets, . If weather permits, open some windows and let in some fresh air.
Music- Play some music in the background. Try to match the tunes with the style and age of the house. Don’t go for a commercial radio channel, but a cd or satellite instead. You don’t need an obnoxious car dealer add coming on during your showing. If you’re showing during the holidays, take advantage of the season and play some appropriate music.
Greeter- Have someone act as a greeter at the entrance to the home. This person can be anyone you trust to represent you. They need to offer a warm welcome and point people to the refreshments. Also, having someone with you an open house is always safer than going it alone.
Make it an Art Show- Find a local artist who wants to have a show. Let them sprinkle the house with their art and advertise it. University art students are often required to have shows for class credit so that’s a good place to find your artist. This will draw people in who might not have otherwise attended.
What are your ideas for an open house? Don’t be afraid to try new things.
