Is an Open House right for your Minnesota home? Will it be worth the time and energy? In this blog, we will review the pros and cons of Having an open house so you can decide if it’s right for you.
The Pros and Cons of Having an Open House in Minnesota
Open to all
It’s not just prospective buyers who come to an open house, but also brokers who might want to team up on the sale and usually provide advice on ways to help a home sell faster.
Less pressure on buyers
any buyers are hesitant to schedule a private showing because it feels like a higher-pressure viewing appointment. Seeing the house when it’s open to the public makes it more casual, and allows prospective buyers to take their time reviewing the features of the home.
When you’re selling the house you currently live in, having to maintain it at all times can be tedious. With an open house, you can prepare for one event that will potentially bring in a lot of prospective buyers all at one time. It’s much easier to deep clean your house for one event than it is to constantly maintain the appearance that you live in a model showroom.
A Nice Environment for Buyers
An Open House usually brings in all types of people. Some people simply love seeing homes. Others are ready to make an offer on the spot. But what most people love, is that they are typically able to walk around the house without any high-pressure sales. This gives them the chance to get a feel for the property and the ability to imagine themselves living there. While a private showing is more one-on-one, an Open House will allow buyers to look around at their own pace without feeling rushed.
Having a Open House can be stressful. Having a bunch of random people walking through your house looking at family photos and making comments on the way you live can be frightening. I would suggest if you do have a open house to leave during that time period. Standing around hovering over people as they are deciding if they like your house or not is a terrible idea. You are just going to be pushing them out the door that much faster. Don’t make it awkward for them, give them time and space to check out your pad.
With random people walking through your house you never know what there intention might be. Always hide or take with you any expensive items like jewelry and electronics. This will help eliminate some of the fear of the unknown of who is in your house.
Dealing With Unqualified Buyers
Part of a open house is well its OPEN! You will defiantly get those people who cant qualify to buy your house or don’t even want to buy your house. Some people just get bored and wanna go look at some house. Remember that’s okay though because who knows they might know someone who is looking for a house themselves and can pass the referral onto them.
