Open House Sign-In Sheets

I know that some Realtors do not have Open Houses in some areas of the country, but to those that do, what are your thoughts on Open House Sign-In Sheets.  It seems like sometimes you have to tread lightly when asking for personal information.  You don't want to seem like the "Realtor Stalker", and as soon as the ink dries on the sign-in sheet, you are mercilessly hounding the person into changing the locks on his house, and getting a new phone number to avoid being hassled.  Okay, that's a little extreme, but you get my point.  I believe in offering something of value to the person walking in my door.  If they have a house and it's not on the market, then I offer to do a CMA for them free of charge.  I also offer a letter with The Ten Mistakes a Seller Makes When Selling Their House.  I want to be known as a value added Realtor, providing a service above and beyond the norm.  For those of us that do Open Houses, I would love to here what items you might offer prospective clients, or how you get them to sign their name to eventually become a prospect.  Thank you!

I have a sign-in sheet at every open house. While I have spaces for address, email and phone number as well, I tell them that only their name and city are required so that I can "keep track of traffic during the open house for my client". If they offer more information than that, I consider that permission to follow up with a thank you note or email. Without a sheet out, it can be very difficult to get someone's information even if you did build up a rapport with them.

I ask clients if they would like to sign my book. If not I ask if they would like to leave their e-mail address and they usually do. I also give small address books away and inside I put my business card. I buy the address books at the 99 cent store. They seem too like it, I don't even have to ask them it they want one, they just take it.

Chris, the sign-in sheet is part of our office open House checklist.  I don't leave home without one.

I happened upon this blog entry since I was looking for an open house guest register template.

I was reading some of the responses to this.

If you are going to stand in someone's house for an open house, and open the doors for all of these wonderful prospects and not collect their names and number, I can only say one thing and that is that you are crazy!

You are a sale person! You sell real estate for a living. Yes, it's uncomfortable. So is being broke. GET A GRIP, WE DON'T NEED MORE PEOPLE ON THE GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE PLAN! CHANGE CAREERS OR LEARN THAT YOU SELL THINGS AND THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BUY THINGS! PERIOD.

I too was hoping for a sign in sheet example.  I am re-designing mine and was looking for ideas. I always ask for visitors to sign in.  Some do, some don't.
