Ornate Front Doors of House Photo (42-18513411) Even in this day and age of marketing your home on the Internet, Open Houses are still a must in the current market. There are many ways to make your Open House a success. For starters, you have to be diligent about getting news of your open house out ahead of time. Your Real Estate Agent will do this through inter-office e-mail and the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). In addition to this, the general public must be informed not only through websites such as Zillow and Trulia, but through your agent/broker’s website, ads on Craiglist, ads in local papers and notices posted at your local market. Listing flyers reach people, but you will get most of your traffic through Internet Marketing, as its mapping and directions help people find your home. Do not underestimate how important it is that you make it easy for prospective buyers to find your home. Pre- Open House marketing that includes excellent signage, maps and directions are extremely important for the success of your Open House. If buyers have trouble finding you, they may not come at all. Make the most of your Open House, as this is the only opportunity for prospective buyers to view listed properties at their convenience, on their own time. In turn, you will also have the wonderful opportunity to receive feedback from your Agent on ways to improve your listing, which can only improve your home in print and on the Internet!
