Open house tour – the special kind of real estate tour

If you are selling or renting your property, a so-called open house tour is an uncomplicated and efficient way to present your property to a large number of interested parties in just one appointment. The term originates from America and is to be understood like an open day. In our video you will learn what you need to consider during an open house visit and what advantages as well as disadvantages it brings.

The planning

It is important that you include an exact time slot for the open house in your property listing, in addition to your address. In order for your house or apartment to shine in the best light on the said date, you should prepare the house or apartment early.

Since they do not know in advance exactly how many prospective buyers will arrive, you should play it safe and conduct the inspection in pairs. This will help you split up and answer questions.

Advantages and disadvantages

An open house tour brings with it the distinct advantage that you usually reach more prospective buyers. This also increases your chances of success. However, the possibility of viewing a property without obligation and virtually incidentally also creates the risk of viewing tourism. Therefore, you should carefully consider whether an open house visit is right for you. The form is particularly suitable for rented properties, for example, as the interested parties all arrive on the same day and you accordingly do not disturb your tenants with many individual appointments.

Provide detailed insights in advance

If you provide potential buyers with detailed insights into your property in advance with an appealing exposé, you increase the chance that only people who are seriously interested in the property will attend the open house. Under certain circumstances, innovative forms of presentation such as virtual tours are already sufficient, which means that an open house tour is no longer necessary.

Sell target-oriented

An open house visit can significantly increase your chances of success. However, you should plan them in detail and be aware of the risks as well as the benefits. We at WEISS IMMOBILIEN will be happy to advise you and work with you to find the optimal solution for your real estate sale.
