Hosting an open house can be stressful and a lot of things can get lost in the shuffle, so here is a checklist to make sure you do not forget a few of the most important things!
- Tell a family member or friend about the location of the open house in case of emergency.
- Place signs advertising the location of the open house around the neighborhood, but do not obstruct the driver's view or place on private property without asking.
- Park out of way of potential buyers.
- Bring business cards and registration book and place them at the entrance to the home.
- Turn cell phone ringer off and do not check it while a potential buyer is there unless absolutely necessary.
- Have a purchase agreement with you just in case.
- Make sure to lock up the property when the open house is over.
- Call homeowner immediately after the open house and let them know how it went (interested buyers, how many attendees, etc.)
