Open House in Toronto: How To Make it a Successful One
As with the majority of things in real estate, planning is vital to your success. Consult your calendar and pick a date that won't interfere with other events that could divert your potential visitors, such as Super Bowl Sunday or Mother's Day!
Confer with your real estate professional for advice on strategies to present your house to its optimal advantage. Remember, when it comes to showing appeal, less is by far, more. You will want to create an atmosphere of spaciousness. This is accomplished by getting rid of the clutter to assist you in maximizing your space for the ultimate goal of getting top dollar for your home.
Having a garage sale, empty the closets and taking the opportunity to give items away to charity are all things you've most likely wanted to do anyways. Aside from making your home look great for showing, it'll give you considerably less to do on moving day!
Moreover, as any real estate professional will tell you, the best thing that you can do to make your open house a resounding success is to... well, get out and stay out! All jesting aside, you'll get far better results (and possibly more offers) when your visitors feel free to poke about, linger, and ask very pointed questions of your real estate agent.
If you are present, they often feel constrained, and your sales representative may not even get the much needed opportunity to connect with the potential buyer, identify any concerns, and attempt to offer them options and solutions. So pack up the kids and the dog, and enjoy your day away (micro vacation) as you trust your real estate professional to do their job to perfection. After all, they are the experts!
