Holding An Open House - 17 Tips


If you are thinking about selling your home, holding an open house can be a great way to generate interest in your property and get several prospective buyers in your home at one time. Your property will be open to the public during your open house; anyone is welcome to come tour your home without a scheduled appointment. You can schedule your open house for any day or time, but weekend afternoons seem to be the most effective.

Arrowhead Title, Inc. is here to help you make your open house a success. If you are considering scheduling an open house in the near future, here are a few tips to help you with the process.

  1. Direct traffic by placing a sign in front of your house.
  2. Have a flyer printed with important facts and key selling points.
  3. Keep small valuables hidden out of sight.
  4. Keep the garage door down.
  5. Make sure the front entrance is clear and inviting.

Good Luck With Your Open House!

The team at our Lake of the Ozarks title insurance company wishes you the best of luck on your open house! As one last reminder, we recommend that you know the location of all your house keys at one time. If one goes missing, you will want to change your locks as soon as possible.

For best results, be sure to have your agent follow up with prospective buyers the next day; a simple follow-up call may be the difference between a casual looker and a serious buyer.
