When it’s time to sell your Grand Junction home, you may be wondering whether open houses are still a “thing.”
Although many people search for homes online (and take virtual tours), holding an open house can still be an important step in the home-selling process. It’s not right for every home, though; it’s best to defer to your agent’s expertise when you’re working together to sell your house.
Why Would a Realtor® Hold an Open House in Grand Junction?
Open houses allow potential buyers to look around at their own paces without feeling put on the spot. Potential buyers can open closets, test faucets and envision themselves cooking a family meal in the kitchen without feeling pressured to commit. In fact, a potential buyer may walk in and out of your house without asking any questions.
If the potential buyer is serious, he or she will set an individual appointment to see your home again.
Will Your Realtor Find a Buyer on the Day of the Open House?
While your Realtor may meet an interested, qualified buyer who strolls through the door on open-house day, there are other benefits to holding an open house, as well.
Opening your home to the public will allow your Realtor to feel out the market real time; you can find out what buyers are looking for, and you’ll be able to get valuable feedback from your agent on possible improvements you can make to the house to make it more desirable.
Holding an open house could also free up some of your time. You may not have to schedule so many individual showings because you’ll be able to filter out buyers who express a sincere interest. This can help you with time management in other areas, such as always keeping the home spotless and having to be away from the house while prospective buyers are taking a peek.
