When you put your home on the market for sale, you want to make sure you’re getting the most mileage in terms of marketing. With the right real estate agent and strategy in place, you’ll get more enquiries and interested buyers coming to your Northern Beaches open home.
Therefore, partnering with a local and experienced real estate agent like JDH Real Estate is crucial. With JDH, your property will get the right treatment and you’ll know firsthand what is a good turnout for an open house – because that’s exactly what you’ll experience.
To optimise your open home, we’ll be making a few touches to ensure a better-than-average turnout for an open house.
Pre-open home tasks
Before we start talking about conducting an open home, we need to make sure your property is in tip-top condition and ready to receive interested buyers. Remember, when people come to your open home, they’ll be looking at your place with a critical eye, so it’s vital to be prepared.
The following are part of the pre-open home preparations we’ll make for you at JDH:
- Cleaning and decluttering: For prospective buyers to be able to visualise themselves living in your home, we need to get rid of personal items like family photos and any items that may not appeal to some buyers. We also need to make sure your home is clean and presentable. If you have pets, you’ll need to arrange for pet sitting. You can take your pets away yourself or ask a relative or professional pet sitter to take care of your fur babies whilst the open home preparations are ongoing and on open day itself.
- Enhancing kerb appeal: The front of your home is the first thing people see when they pass by your home. Therefore, it’s important to make it look attractive and inviting. We’ll get any broken fences fixed and repainted and revitalise your yard and garden.
- Full-blast marketing: Once your property has been primped and styled and ready for the world, we’ll let everyone know about it. We’ll use both traditional and digital marketing approaches to maximise reach. We’ll get a professional photographer to take beautiful photos of your property, emphasising its best features. We’ll use those photos for property listings and for targeted ads on social media. We’ll let the neighbours and the rest of the Northern Beaches know about your property for sale and invite buyers’ agents.
- Scheduling open days: It’s crucial to choose a strategic day for an open home. Saturday afternoons are usually popular, although we also take into consideration holidays and the weather to maximise the turnout. When many people attend an open home, it adds a sense of urgency, as interested parties view each other as potential rivals. This means you’re bound to get more serious offers, too.
During the open home, we’ll make sure your property is ready for open home inspections. We’ll air out your place and maximise natural light to emphasise the beauty of your home. We’ll also ensure a comfortable temperature is maintained so visitors would want to linger and take a closer look.
