How to Have an Incredible Open House

A lot of people think that using an open house to sell a home is really old-fashioned. While I don't completely disagree with that opinion, using an open house to sell a home really can work, but it depends on your home.

When it comes to open houses, the location, condition, and price are what drive the success or failure of the event. In our most recent open house, the property was right on the edge of downtown Trussville, and that helped immensely during the sale.

We also put out some yard signs advertising the open house, and we came in and staged the home for our seller to make it as appealing as possible to buyers. When we had the home looking nice, we then worked with the sellers and assigned a great price to the home. These particular sellers were very smart, and they priced the home just below market value.

The result of this pricing strategy is that we now have six full-price offers on the home. Realistically, this seller will not have to pay closing costs and they're going to get more than the list price of their home.

Open houses do work! It just takes some careful planning and prep work. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us today if you'd like to find out if an open house would work for your home.
