If you are looking to sell your Fort St. John real estate, holding an open house is a great way to attract potential buyers and increase the attention to your home.
There are countless ways to make sure your open house is a success, from using the correct marketing tools, to planning the best date and time for your event.
When you begin to plan your open house, it is important to consider both the date and the time. Pay attention to local patterns of activity and try to plan for when the most people will be in your local area.
The best days to hold open houses in the Fall are usually on the weekends when most people are off work. Most open houses are held from 1 pm to 3 pm or from 2 pm to 4 pm, but even 3 pm to 5 pm is an ideal time frame.
Once you have found the perfect date and time for your open house, it will be time to start marketing your event. As Fort St. John real estate experts, we know the best ways to successfully market your open house to draw in as many agents and potential buyers as possible.
Using resources, like Social Media, online forums and email lists are great places to start but don’t discount “low-tech” marketing. Posting ads in the local newspaper and putting up signs and balloons are also simple, lost cost ways you can increase the foot traffic to your open house.
After you schedule and advertise your open house, don’t forget to prep your home. You can quickly prepare your home for an open house by removing any clutter, updating the front entrance, and making sure everything is clean and organized (including cabinets and closets).
