  Forget the open house  

 

 

 

When homeowners decide to put their home on the market, they always expect the Realtor to do open houses and more than likely the Realtor will comply with that request, but not for the homeowners benefit, but for the Realtors benefit.

 

Every Realtor knows that open houses are a great way to meet the neighbors of the home they are selling and it is the best form of advertising their business. What other way do you get potential clients to come to you and have an opportunity to introduce yourself to them and talk Real Estate. The open house is an advertising bonanza for Realtors, but a disappointment for the Home owner.

 

The only time open houses help in selling a home is when there is a very hot sellers market and people are in a frenzie to buy. Most people have their own Realtors and they don’t rely on open houses to see properties, they let their Realtors arrange the showings and that is the best way to see home that suit a buyer. Going from open house to open house is a very inefficient way to see homes if you are really looking to buy.

 

Let’s get back to the home owner trying to sell their home. The only people you want in your home are people ready to buy and are looking at properties that are like yours. You want people who have been pre screened and pre approved to buy your property. Do you really want every nosey person who is willing to take a Saturday or Sunday going around neighborhoods looking at other people’s homes with no intention to buy. Why would you want these people in your property?

 

A Realtor who wants to make the most of an open house is not looking to sell your home, but is looking to pick up potential clients either buyers or sellers and in the off chance that they do get lucky and find a buyer for your home, then they hit the jack pot, but that is a real long shot and they know it. The smart Realtor wants to put up as many open house signs as possible. Years ago when I had a partner, we use to do open houses and neighborhood garage sales at the same time. I read a study that people can’t differentiate between garage sale signs and open house signs, so we would have 100 signs up in a neighborhood and people thought we were the busiest Realtors around. I had one lady tell me that we must be selling the entire neighborhood and we just had one listing. Perception is reality and people perceived that we owned the neighborhood and after a while we did.

 

If your Realtor wants to do an open house, ask them the odds of them selling your home with an open house and if they are honest, they will tell you that the odds are not very good. The National Association of Realtors found that in 2014 only 9% of buyers found their home by visiting an open house and that is down from 14%in 2004. The internet is taking the place of the open house for buyers.

 

In my business of Property Management in Orange County California I tell my clients that they need to Remember that they are marketing their home to other Realtors not to buyers, so if you really want to increase your chance of selling your home, increase the commission you are offering the buyers agents on the MLS. There is nothing that motivates Realtors to show a home and give it priority more than a big commission.

What my clients are saying  

5 reviews 5.0 star rating 1/21/2016 I was tired of using a large management team to manage my investment property. I felt I was always on the back burner. I was recommended to Tony from a business associate, he assured me I would be very pleased. Well that was an understatement, Tony is amazing. He's above all honest and always available for my concerns. I'm not as well versed as other investors with property management and maintenance and tenant relations, Tony has been an excellent partner and has guided me through quite a bit of needed repairs and worked far beyond what was expected to help turn my little investment into quite a prosperous investment, If what your looking for is prompt return calls, honest direction and someone very knowledgeable with general contractors and real estate laws, Tony is your man.
