Selling your property can seem a daunting prospect, and can be an intense time. Between preparing your house for viewings and finding somewhere new to move to, the process can appear hectic. However, what if you could have multiple viewings, agree on a sale price and kick-start your move on one day? With Romans' open house events, you can!

What is an open house event?

An open house typically runs for between one and two hours on a day of your choice - they're most popular on the weekend as more prospective buyers are available to attend. We prepare the open house event by contacting the most suitable buyers registered with Romans and promote your open house event on social media, Rightmove, Zoopla, and our website.

What are the benefits of having an open house?

There are several reasons why you should consider hosting an open house event, both from a practical perspective and when trying to achieve the best possible sale price. National Sales Director for Romans, Kevin Shaw, comments: “Firstly, by holding an open house event, most sellers will spend a few hours away from their home while viewings take place. This is often preferable to having single viewings spread over various days and times.

“Secondly, by consolidating viewings into one date, it is easier to prepare a property so that it looks its best ahead of viewings. After all, nobody wants to have to clean and tidy before every single viewing.

“Perhaps most importantly of all, open houses are designed to maximise interest in a property. They force all interested parties to view at the same time and, providing the event goes well, a bidding war often ensues, strengthening the seller’s position and leading to great offers.

“A good estate agent will actively promote the open house event and generate enquiries from a selection of potential buyers. Your agent should be highly effective when it comes to letting people know a property is up for sale and an open house is happening.”
