DO’S FOR OPEN HOUSES DURING HOLIDAYS
1. DO: CLEAN THE WALK
If the property you’re selling is near some sand or at the beach, or if there’s a bad weather day, you have to make sure that you clean the front of your house. The walkways and stairs should be free from dirt and sand.
2. DO: COOL THE HOUSE DOWN
Make sure that the air conditioning system is on and there’s a cool and fresh atmosphere inside the house.
3. DO: TRACK THE WEATHER
You have to keep checking on the weather through TV and some of your phone apps. If there’s a threat of storm or any seasonal inconvenience, maybe rescheduling the open house for another day is your best option.
4. DO: GET INTO THE SPIRIT OF THE SEASON
Get some snacks and seasonal foods. This will help you make your clients feel like they’re not wasting their time on a day that they could spend doing anything else (it’s a holiday, after all). Adding some scents to the house atmosphere can be helpful too!
5. DO: DECK THE HALLS
In addition to the last point, Dubai real estate agencies also recommend getting your clients to put some holiday decor to the property that can help set up a comfortable and seasonal atmosphere!
6. DO: WRITE A POWERFUL LISTING DESCRIPTION
Top real estate agents have given testimony that a good, well-written and detailed property listing description can make clients feel that you are engaged in the selling of this property. This will also make your potential buyers excited about buying a new property.
7. DO: ROCK THAT OPEN HOUSE
What are you waiting for? It’s your chance to sell that property!
DONT’S FOR OPEN HOUSES DURING HOLIDAYS
1. DON’T: OVERDO THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT
Don’t overdecorate with holiday decorations. This will give the property a charged and overdone atmosphere like you’re trying too hard to sell.
2. DON’T: FORGET TO DECLUTTER
Keep all of the clutter to the minimum, be as professional as possible.
3. DON’T: LEAVE PRESENTS OUT IN THE OPEN
Of course, there’s no need to leave all of your presents and stuff out. Unless you’re giving a little something to your buyers, there’s no need to have those cluttering the atmosphere of your open house.
