Open house event to provide homeowners with golden opportunity to sell

Wed 30 Aug 2017

Homeowners currently thinking about selling their property have been offered a golden chance to sell quickly and at a great price by taking part in an upcoming open house event.

Estate agents Leaders is hosting a special day of open houses on Saturday 23rd September in which it will hold open house events at a selection of properties it is currently offering for sale, providing buyers with a chance to view properties in their local area on this day.

It will also benefit sellers, who will typically find their home attracts a high number of viewers all within a three or four-hour window that is designed to minimise disruption.

Kevin Shaw, national sales director at Leaders, says: “Open houses are an incredibly convenient and effective way to buy or sell a property. Our statistics from previous open house events show 96 per cent of properties sold at or above the asking price, helping sellers to get the best price for their home.

“Our history of open houses also proves they are the best way to generate interest and encourage offers for a property. Some 80 per cent of properties we hold an open house at receive more than one offer, while open houses typically lead to a 62 per cent increase in viewings.

“There is no doubt that open houses are a great way to sell your home and by hosting open houses across the country on 23rd September we expect to welcome a record number of buyers, making this an opportunity not to be missed.”

Figures also show open houses are incredibly effective when it comes to enhancing online interest in a property, with homes that are advertised for such an event enjoying 58 per cent more clicks on Rightmove and Zoopla.

Anybody wishing to take part in the open house event must instruct Leaders to sell their property by 18th September. Simply contact your local Leaders branch to take your first step towards an open house and a successful sale.
