When you put your home on the market, it would be nice if you could just put a ďFor SaleĒ sign out front, then the home would magically sell. Unfortunately, thatís not how it works. Most home searches begin online today. Then, buyers move to open houses and private home showings. Whether you live in a condo, townhouse, or a single family house, thereís ways that you can increase the amount of traffic to your home showing. The more people that see the property in person, the more likely someone is to buy it! Youíll need to work with your realtor to effectively market your home and make it easily available for home showings.



Donít Require That Your Agent Be The Only One Who Shows The Home


The MLS is where properties for sale are listed and how realtors help their clients find homes. The listing should state that you have a lockbox available to allow other realtors to get into the home with a client. They will call first in order to set up an appointment for a showing. Also, donít be restrictive for your showing times. Of course, your home wonít be available 24 hours a day, but you need to be flexible. Work with your realtor to set appropriate times for potential buyers to do walkthroughs. 


Outside The Box Marketing Strategies


Aside from simply listing the home and posting it on social media, try other marketing methods. Maybe you can do some direct mailing to the neighborhood in order to announce that the home is for sale and showings are available. You can also put ads for the home showing in the local newspaper, on Craigslist and on Facebook message boards.   


Donít Forget The Buyerís Agent Commission


Most likely, your listing agreement states that the buyerís agent and the seller's agent are splitting the commission on your home 50/50. You can raise the amount of the commission and give the buyerís agent a higher percentage to make the home more attractive to both realtors and buyers. Realtors are more likely to want to show the home, if they have a little extra incentive to bring clients to your home for sale. The money you get from the sale of your home is yours, so use a little of it to get your home sold faster, possibly for a better price.  


Organize A Neighborhood Open House


If there are a few other homes in the neighborhood for sale, ask your realtor to try and coordinate with other agents to hold all of the open houses during the same hours on the same day. Real estate agents tend to love to work together because it gives mutual benefits to both parties. This strategy will attract a larger crowd because people who attend one open house will drive by with curiosity, or notice how close the open house listings are together and plan to visit all of the showings during that day.


If you plan your home showings right alongside your realtor, you should have your home sold in a timely manner to the right buyer for a great price.

When youíre searching for a home to buy, youíll probably attend many different open houses. The open house is meant to help you get a feel for different properties. While you canít get to know all the ins and outs of a home in a short time, you can get an understanding of some of the best things (and not so great things) about a property. Below, youíll find some of the biggest warning signs that a property may not be all that it appears to be. 


Thereís A Lot Of Odor Masking Elements In Place


When you walk into an open house, you may get the smell of freshly baked cookies or a lovely candle. While these are great marketing techniques, they also can be a tactic to hide things. Perhaps there are some offensive odors in the house from mold, leaks, smoke, or mildew. You may not be prepared to deal with these kinds of problems once you move into a home. 


You Notice Glaring Issues


While the home inspection will reveal many problems that may be invisible to the casual observer, you should still be on the lookout for issues on the surface of the home during the open house. These issues can include cracks in the ceiling or walls, cracks in the floor, or even squeaky floor boards. If you happen to see patchy walls in the home, that could indicate that repairs have been made several times. Be alert for these potential problems.


Does The Home Look Well-Kept?


When you pull up in front of the home is the lawn trim? Does the home appear clean? While everyone would hope that a homeowner would clean up their property before an open house, small and big things like this can indicate a bigger problem. If the home is not cared for on the surface, how many other underlying maintenance issues are there in the home? Neglected regular maintenance can cause larger problems of all kinds in a home.


Strange Cosmetic Fixes


A freshly painted wall could be suspect of a big problem. Under the paint could be mold, cracks, or other issues. Some homeowners do put fresh paint on their walls before selling in order to give the home a neutral feel. However, you should be on the lookout for other signs of problems in the home.          


Channel Your Inner Detective


While you donít need to dig as deep into a home as a home inspector does, you should be on the lookout as you scan a home for the potential livability for you. Things like glaring cracks in the ceiling, or a strong odor of cigarette smoke could be signs of future problems living in the home. The open house is your time to find a home that fits you and your life, so make the most of the opportunity.
