Open Days- A Great Success. But Do Them Professionally

Back to articles

Last Updated: 18/03/2014  

Creating an Open Day is an effective way of achieving an excellent price for your property.  Ellisons have been creating Open Days for over 20 years.  We first saw the idea in the United States and realized it had many benefits.

Some properties will not benefit from an Open Day as special one off visits may be a more exclusive way of achieving a sale at a maximum price.  Make sure your Open Day is professionally organized from start to finish. Try to show the property in its best light, clean, uncluttered and if you have a garden, ensure it’s neat with the lawn cut.

Do not let your agent just advertise your address, time and date.  You need to know who is visiting your home and get feedback from them.  Security is an important aspect of any Open Day and therefore, get your agent to make timed appointments so that only one or two viewers at a time are viewing your home.  You wouldn’t let strangers walk around your home unaccompanied, neither would we!

The main reason why Open Days are successful at the moment is the supply of homes coming into the market cannot meet the current demand from buyers.  Open Days allow all viewers a chance to express their interest.  Ellisons have been organizing professional Open Days for long time and our current success rate is incredible.
