Open House

Updated: 13 January 2020

The Open House can be the perfect way to sell your property.

The Open House creates the opportunity to create an environment of competition with viewings being undertaken at a single event. Open Houses are most suitable for properties that are expected to appeal to many buyers and can be highly successful leaving sellers feeling confident that they have achieved best price.

At our initial appointment our trained valuer will discuss and identify with you if an Open House is the appropriate method of marketing for your property. Sometimes due to the location, possible parking restrictions or the type of property that you have an Open House may not be appropriate and if this is the case we will revert to more traditional marketing strategies.

If the Open House method of marketing is adopted, we will agree with you a suitable day for this to take place. Normally we would avoid the date of any major events and plan a lead in period of 10 to 21 days for marketing.

In the period leading up to the event we will undertake an extensive marketing campaign which is designed to promote your property and create interest. Marketing will be supplemented by bespoke invitations to our database of buyers and into the local area, together with advertisements in the local media and property portals to include Rightmove, On the Market and Goadsby.com.

On the day, signage will be displayed outside your property and an experienced negotiator will be in attendance to host the event.

Following the Open House detailed feedback is provided to include a schedule of all offers received with our observations and recommendations.

If you would like to know more about this highly effective and bespoke way of marketing please get in touch with your local office.
