Open House Checklist

By
Real Estate Agent with Millennium 3 Real Estate

I don't know about you but in order to streamline things I have a "Open House Kit". It's almost everything I need for an open house and I put it in one of those small rolling suitcases. I have pens, sign in sheets, a clipboard, extra copies of my business card, a calculator, tape, air freshner (you never know when a house is going to smell), a flashlight, extra batteries, and some office supplies.

Also if I, or another realtor in my office have a property nearby I come with a stack of directions from my open house to the other house. I don't leave them out, but have them handy if I think a client is going to like them better. It's easier than writing out directions every time and helpful if I can't remember the address or directions.

I learned an important lesson at a recent Open House. It has been hotter than hot lately in California. I went to do an open house without water. With average daily temperatures over 100 degrees I will never make that mistake again.

DON'T forget to bring water! Offer water and even popciles or ice cream as a way to beat the heat. Show potential clients that you had them in mind even before they had you in mind.

Good Luck!

Josh, good ideas!  Of course here in AZ if I don't have water to offer my open house visitors I may have to call 911 when they drop in the foyer from sunstroke.  I like the idea of having directions to other open houses...nice touch.
