Place something warm and fuzzy on the counter or coffee table for buyers to play with. When your touch-oriented clients play with these “toys”, they will associate pleasant feelings with the home. These feelings will last well after the open house has ended.
Real Estate Agent Tips
While you are showing the home to prospective buyers you should make them feel as comfortable as possible. Be hospitable to make them feel welcome. Offer food, drinks, and a place to sit. By offering a place to sit, you are allowing the buyers to experience the possibility of comfort and relaxation in the home.
Limit the amount you talk. Ask a few questions and give the buyers a chance to ask questions of their own, but give the buyers time to really consider the home and how it fits in his life. The more you talk, the less time the buyer has to think about the home.
The temperature inside the home should be set a level that is comfortable both to you and the buyers. Since you are going to be selling the home, you need to be physically comfortable. Of course the buyers need to be comfortable so they spend time thinking about the home and not about getting to a better temperature.
Proper planning for an open house definitely improves the chances of a buyer purchasing the home. Create the right atmosphere and the home will seemingly sell itself.
