The Real Estate Open House

 

Open Houses have been around for centuries. They are defined as any event where the owners of a business, school, or home open their doors to allow in members of the general public. More specifically, the real estate Open House is a free, one-day event held by a real estate agent to show a listed residential property to any and all interested parties.

One type of Open House is the Agent Open House, usually held during the week, where local real estate agents are invited to visit the home. These are usually held before the home is available to the public. These help generate buzz about the home and give the Realtors who attend the chance to share a new discovery with their clients. These are a great idea, especially if you have had some home staging.

The Open House Experience for Sellers

As a home seller, finding just the right buyer will make life much easier. Making sure that your home puts its best face forward can be the difference between a quick sale and a drawn out, frustrating wait on the market. Contact Steve to find out how he can help you get your home ready for sale.

 Open Houses have several advantages  for the sellers, and you can find out more about the process on our Real Estate Open Houses for Sellers page.

A residential Open House allows potential Buyers to visit the house without an appointment during the stated time. Open Houses in York Region, including Bradford, Newmarket, and Aurora are frequently on Saturday and Sunday afternoons between 12 and 4 p.m. in a two-hour time block. Once at the Open House, you’ll likely be asked to sign in and then you’ll be able to wander through the house at your leisure to really get a feel for how you would live in the house.
