Closing the Door to Seller-Held Open Houses
Some homeowners conduct open house events to save money when doing For Sale by Owner. There are substantial risks when welcoming random strangers into an occupied home.
Many people may not have buying in mind when crossing the threshold. Windows and doors can become conveniently unlocked, car keys, money, credit cards, medications, jewelry, guns and small electronic devices often end up missing when owners are distracted or people left unattended.
Or worse, a physical attack can occur.
When you hire a hands-on, local agent to sell your home, not only are qualified people moving through the home but you also get peace of mind, knowing that everyone who views it in person is accompianied by real a estate professional.
Your home will be broadly marketed locally and nationally to countless real estate driven sites with a cohesive online advertising plan designed to drive more looks with professional photos and 3-D technology tour, so people get a true view of the home prior to viewing it in person.
Being risk averse, I refuse to put homeowners in danger by encouraging them to open their doors to just anyone who happens to be in the neighborhood. To make my point, get online and read the many horror stories related to open houses.
There's too much at stake as we professionals know and understand. Proper representation means being there every step of the way, no cutting corners when it comes to safety measures plus incorporating effective marketing and advertising to achieve the clients goals, every single time.
While unable to prevent events from happening outside the scope of control, taking proactive measures against crime, matters.
