ELLING your home is one of the most stress­ful things to go through in life, sec­ond only to wed­dings and funer­als. Not only do you have to or­gan­ise your fi­nances and pick a new place to call home, you also need to sell your ex­ist­ing home to make all of this pos­si­ble.

Hav­ing an ‘open house’ event is be­com­ing an in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar way to sell a home among work­ing pro­fes­sion­als and busy par­ents. Invit­ing all prospec­tive buy­ers to view a prop­erty on a sin­gle day means less in­con­ve­nience for the seller and cre­ates a com­pet­i­tive at­mos­phere which often leads to buy­ers plac­ing higher of­fers.

Ro­mans es­tate agents wouldn’t want a seller to go to all the trou­ble of get­ting their home ready and have no one show up, so they go above and be­yond to mar­ket open house events, and man­age them ev­ery step of the way, leav­ing sell­ers to get on with search­ing for their next prop­erty.

Even if you don’t ac­cept any of the of­fers placed on the day, an open house pro­vides a good in­di­ca­tion of the level of buyer in­ter­est in your home, what they are pre­pared to pay so you can as­cer­tain whether the ask­ing price is ac­cu­rate.

The process be­gins with the send­ing of post and email in­vi­ta­tions to our ex­ten­sive buyer data­base.We then tele­phone cus­tomers who we know are ac­tively look­ing for prop­er­ties like yours to no­tify them of the event.The lo­cal press will then be asked to fea­ture your open house to en­sure we get as many at­ten­dees as pos­si­ble.

Open houses aren’t just open to Ro­mans buy­ers but to the gen­eral pub­lic, mean­ing you can at­tract a wide range of buy­ers.As buy­ers don’t need to make an ap­point­ment you are also more likely to at­tract a wider range of peo­ple in­clud­ing those who just hap­pen to be pass­ing by.

On the day of the open house, our agents run the show.They will guide the at­ten­dees through the prop­erty and an­swer any ques­tions they may have. Whether you at­tend the event is com­pletely up to you, but you can rest as­sured that your prop­erty is in safe hands.

The magic of an open house is the com­pet­i­tive at­mos­phere it cre­ates, much like a good cloth­ing sale. It’s sur­pris­ing how many buy­ers will make on the spot of­fers to en­sure they can buy their per­fect home.

The agents on-site will look af­ter all ne­go­ti­a­tions on your be­half, help­ing you achieve the best pos­si­ble price for your prop­erty and often giv­ing you a choice of buy­ers.
