Some Tips for a Successful Open House in Hawaii Kai

Real Estate Agent with Valcore Realty Group

Having an open house has been a proven marketing tactic for decades now. Giving a lot of buyers the chance to look at your house is a great way to gain exposure and interest among buyers. In this article, we will discuss in depth how to appeal to buyers in the Hawaii Kai real estate market using the open house.

Tip #1 Meticulous Staging

Stage your house beautifully. Everything should be spotless and clean. The house should be well lit and lightly scented. The overall impression should be that the house is in top notch condition.

Tip #2 Collect Contact Information

To increase the likelihood that a buyer will make an offer on your house, it's important to collect their contact information so you can follow up. Ideally, you want to get their name, phone number and email addresses.

The best way to do this is to have a sign in sheet.

Tip #3 Provide Snacks

Remember that the home buying process is an emotional one. By providing snacks, cookies, water and/or fruit juices, you're associating a feeling of pleasantness to visiting your house.

Tip #4 Have an Amazing First Impression

As an experienced real estate agent, I can tell you that buyers make their decision on a home within seconds. It's vitally important that you keep your front yard and the entrance to your home in tip top condition. A plastic bag that's lying around can literally cost you thousands of dollars.

These tips will take you a long way towards having an amazing open house. As always, make sure that you're working with a real estate agent that really knows what they're doing when you're selling your house.
