Open homes allow potential buyers the opportunity to get a feel for the property and be able to picture themselves living there by walking from room to room, creating an emotional connection that will drive them to ultimately put an offer in or bid on the property if it is going to auction.
What’s the deal with open houses?
We encourage people to have open houses. The atmosphere that an open house creates is fairly important. There are a lot of buyers interested out there and this is one way to see what the market is like for your property.
The good thing about having an open house is you never know who’s going to turn up. People might drive by they see that it’s an open house and come in!
What are the main benefits of an open home?
- You can showcase your home to multiple buyers at the same time, creating competition and driving buyers to purchase now or risk missing out on the property.
- Open homes also attract “window shoppers” who haven’t yet made the decision to purchase at the time but may quickly change their tune once they unexpectedly step inside their dream home.
- It creates a sense of urgency with interested buyers.

Hi, I’m Roseanne Gaut And I’m Monique Gaut And we’re from Dowling Maitland. Roseanne, what would you say to an owner looking to sell their home and they weren't interested in doing open houses? I encourage people to have open houses. The atmosphere that an open house creates is fairly important. There are lots of buyers there. There's lots of people interested. It's actually all part of the experience. The good thing about having an open house is you never know who's going to turn up. People might drive by they and see that it's an open house, people are time poor. They say that the window of opportunities is there for half an hour. They don't have to make a special appointment. They can just come and go as they please but not as much pressure. And what if those people can't make the open house? Oh, you know, that's a good question as well because sometimes people can't make the open house and they will give us a call and let us know they can't make the open house and we'll just schedule another appointment. Thanks Roseanne, that's great advice. If you've got more questions about open houses or any other real estate questions, you can send us an email at [email protected]
