How to Prepare Your Home for an Open House Viewing

Open House viewings have become more popular in Bracknell in the recent buoyant market place and they are normally advertised 1 to 2 weeks in advance of the viewing date.

It isn’t surprising that a buyer viewing a property with a string of interested parties in tow is likely to get the impression that the property is ‘in demand’. As a seller, that’s what you want. It gives you options and ensures that you achieve the best market price.

Preparing for an Open House should address several issues, namely; time, presentation, personnel, security and convenience. If you are opening your furnished home to strangers it’s a good idea to make sure that valuable and confidential items are stored securely out of sight. It’s probable that your viewers are perfectly respectable people, but don’t take the chance.

Make sure that your home is properly cleaned and presented at its best. It is important to choose the best time to enable the maximum number of people to attend and this is typically at a weekend. As the estate agent we meet and greet all the viewers and conduct the show rounds.

We endeavour to have more than one person at the property protecting your interests and keeping a close eye on things. We are also able to answer questions from interested parties and distribute details.

At Duncan Yeardley we do this for clients on a regular basis and have a proven track record for successfully agreeing a sale at the best possible price. Please get in contact for further advice and to arrange your free valuation.
