Why Hold a St. Albert Open House?

There is a lot of debate about whether holding an open house works or not.  Whether or not you choose to hold one is entirely up to you and your realtor, but holding a St. Albert open house can be a smart move when it comes to accelerating the selling process—but only if it is done correctly.

 What benefits can an open house offer you?

 Marketing.

 When done correctly, holding a St. Albert open house can draw a lot of attention to your home.  This takes a bit of effort, though.  You can’t just slap an open house sign on your lawn and expect a flock of people to come running inside to check your house out and make offers.  You need to ensure you spread the word about your open house to the right places, placing ads with enough time to create a draw.  You also need to stage your home for the open house if it is going to be effective.  Get rid of anything personal and ensure any furniture is arranged to amplify the home’s best features.

 Is marketing your home this way still necessary in the world of modern technology?

 It is true that there are a lot of ways to market your home.  The internet is wonderful for reaching out to a large scope of potential buyers; however, consider how many other homes are being listed on realty websites, too.  A lot of buyers do consult internet searches for homes, but sometimes it is hard to get your home to stand out from the crowd in this forum.  Further, some buyers need more than a photo to pique their interests.  Pairing a St. Albert open house with web advertising is a good way to spread the word to a wide scope of individuals while still offering the opportunity for people to see and experience the features of your home that can’t be easily captured by a photograph.

 Allowing potential buyers the opportunity to walk through your home is the best way to encourage them to fall in love with it and make an offer.  Holding a St. Albert open house is the key to making that happen.
