Viewings And Open Houses

Private viewings and open houses provide opportunities for buyers to step inside your house and get a feel for what it would be like to live there. My modern marketing solutions will certainly draw interested parties but almost no one buys a house without first seeing it in person. Therefore it’s crucial to stage for maximum potential and there are certain ways to increase the attractiveness of the average house.

As a Realtor for both buyers and sellers I view hundreds of homes every week in the Edmonton market and I can tell you that you will have an immediate advantage in the marketplace if you keep your house clean and de-cluttered. I often suggest professional cleaning services and can recommend several reputable companies offering specialized services such as carpet, window, furnace and duct, and full home cleaning. I can say to you that a good cleaning can alleviate a lot of buyer uncertainty, and even earn you thousands more upon sale.

De-cluttering also helps buyers see the possibility of open space and better envision their belongings in the house. For instance, stowing kids toys away can allow a young couple to see room for entertaining guests, and tidying an office can make it easier to see it as a bedroom.

If you have already moved out of your house it may be beneficial to bring in some modern furniture and art to display the highest and best use for the spaces in the house. Professional Staging companies charge a fee but often this service will aid in a sale.

I will prepare a Property Brochure to be left on the kitchen or island countertop to offer buyers specific details of the house and community including local schools, parks, businesses, and public transportation.

When it comes to scheduling viewings and open houses, I will coordinate with you to select days and times that are as convenient as possible. In fact our first consultation will discuss your preferred schedule. I will focus on bringing in serious buyers, rather than those who are merely curious. This speeds up the process and increases the likelihood of a buyer seeing your property, becoming interested, and making an offer. Obviously our goal will be to sell your home for as much and as quickly as possible and we have determined that the best way to do so is to grant viewing access to qualified buyers. Therefore I encourage you to be as flexible as you can, as that will enable more buyers to see your property. Weekends in particular are popular for viewings.

To sell your house quickly, and for the highest price possible, it is crucial to take advantage of viewings and open houses. Want to learn more about preparing your home for sale? Please submit the form below or call or email me today to schedule a no-obligation Personal Consultation.
