With the state making its way into Phase 1 you may have decided you are ready to sell your home.  Understandably you still may be concerned on what the process looks like now and how safe you can keep yourself and your family.  I have tools and resources in place to help sell your home even during these uncertain times.

One way I can help is by holding a special open house which reduces the number of people in your home, but still allows for an optimal showing. You’re probably familiar with the traditional open house, where I host an open house at your property for a few hours on the weekend allowing prospective buyers and passersby to see the place in person. But there is a different kind of open house, and it can be a valuable tool for selling your home: The Broker’s Open House.

At a Broker’s Open House, I only invite other agents and industry contacts to the property. They can view it and see if it’s right for their buyer clients. Rather than the typical weekend hours, a Broker’s Open House is usually held during weekdays, since there’s no need to plan for buyers’ usual weekend house hunting tours, and weekdays often work better for agents’ schedules.  This also allows me to better work around your schedule!

The event itself isn’t much different from a typical open house. I play host for a few hours and show other real estate professionals around the property. The difference is that a Broker’s Open House can give your property more exposure since each agent at the open house can then pass along their opinion to their buyer clients.  I also provide review sheets for each agent to provide feedback.  This feedback is invaluable as it allows me to adjust marketing or allows us to make changes so that the property is more appealing.  

A Broker’s Open House cuts down on the window shoppers who might not actually be in the market, so you’ll have fewer strangers wandering through your home—everyone who steps foot inside will likely be in the real state business, so it’s a more professional setting. This means higher safety standards can be in place.

If you are interested in selling your home please contact me about your options.  I'm always ready to give a free consultation!
