Benefits of Holding an Open House

There are some benefits of holding an open house, see the listed benefits below.



It gets eyes on your home. Open houses tend bring in potential buyers who would otherwise be too casual, lazy, or unmotivated to book a showing with an agent and they draw in visitors in more ways than a simple listing will. Your friends and family can mention the event to anyone they know who might be interested in taking a look at your home. Neighbors who drop by might just be angling to have someone they know move into your neighborhood. Add in advertising and signage, and you’re going to catch the eye of both casual and serious potential buyers.

You can set the scene – your way. When potential homebuyers stop by your home for a regular showing, they often do it with little notice, which is why it can be stressful keeping your home “show ready” for the entire time that it is on the market. It can be very consuming to keep wastebaskets emptied and floors free of clutter, ensure that the laundry doesn’t pile up, and make certain that floors are routinely swept and vacuumed. With an open house, you’ll be able to prepare for an event that has the potential to bring in many prospective buyers with one fell swoop. It’s much easier to do some deep cleaning that will leave your home spotless if you know exactly when people will be visiting. And you’re also able to sweeten the deal by baking cookies and setting them out or filling vases with fresh flowers and cuttings.

You could lock in that interested buyer. There’s likely a limit to the number of times even the most interested buyer is willing to ask for a private showing. If your house has already caught the eye of a potential buyer, he or she might be more willing to come back for a second look in a less formal setting. An open house gives that buyer the opportunity to bring friends or family along for their opinions and as a bonus, walking through an open house provides a visitor with plenty of time to look around without feeling rushed – during the hours that you choose. 

Buyers can compare and contrast. Any given weekend usually sees several open houses in a particular location. Buyers interested in purchasing a home in your area will be able to comparison shop by attending several open houses, giving you the opportunity to make your home stand out from the crowd.

You choose the timing. Some weekends see a lot of open houses, while some see very few. This year April 21st was Nationwide Open House.
