Homes that will host an Open House this week in Springfield, MO
The big question when putting your home on the market to sale is Do we host an open house or not. The answer to the question varies from agent to agent and also from state to state. In certain communities, open houses are packed and many deals are made at the open house. In others, not a single person or family will stop by the home. It all depends on your market, your real estate agent and the neighborhood you live in.
So let's talk about Springfield, Missouri
At the DCRG (Dakota Carson Realty Group), we do have open houses on our listings. We have mixed results but we do feel it's worth the efforts. In our area, we have tried hosting opens during the week and on Saturdays and we haven't had much success so we normally host them on Sunday afternoons from 2 to 4. Here are a few tips we tell our clients.
- Declutter your home. This means anything that is not needed to get you through your normal day, remove from the home. Pack away in rubbermaid tubs and either store in the attic, at a family members home, or rent a storage unit for the month. This is something we recommend doing not only for preparations for hosting an open house, but as a general rule in getting your home to put on the market.
- Post along with us on your social media network. You can not underestimate the power of social media. Even though you assume your friends and family know your home is currently on the market, use this outlet to promote your home to friends, and their friends, and their friends.
- Have your home in great condition. Touch up the paint, clean your windows, freshen your landscaping and lawn, and the list goes on. First impressions are everything so be ready.
We have plenty of additional tips on our website. Be sure to check out our youtube channel because Dave has many videos on there that can assist you on getting your home ready for an open, as well as many other helpful tips.
