BENEFITS OF AN OPEN HOUSE
An open house is a technique that is very common in the real estate world. This marketing technique originated from the USA, but has gradually become a trend in the real estate world. There are several definitions to this term, the textbook definition of an open house is when the property seller opens their doors to prospective buyers who may come and check out the space.
It is also a scheduled period of time in which a home is available for viewing by potential buyers. Although the event can entail a considerable amount of effort in organizing, it is usually done by the property seller and the real estate agent. Most open house events occur on weekends (Sundays) as families see it as an opportunity to unwind and relax from the activities of the week. The property is nicely set up with light refreshment and sometimes background music, a low-pressure way to show the house to potential buyers
