"Excellence is not an act, but a habit. The things you do most are the things you do best." Marva Collins
Many agents contemplate holding Open House...for years I did. This year, I implemented a plan to host an Open House at least once a month and it has proven to be a great plan to gaining new prospects. Recently, I attended an event hosted by the National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB) and Patrick Ferry, of Tom Ferry Coaching was one of the guest speakers. Patrick Ferry spoke about implementing relevant marketing strategies to attract new prospects and hosting a Mega Open House was one of the suggested strategies.
Today, I hosted an Open House in the Weston Ranch Community in Stockton. A renter from the neighborhood received my flyer (that I had left on his door) and stated that he has been renting in Weston Ranch for years. He was elated to see someone holding an Open House in the neighborhood, so he can see what the homes were selling for. This conversation alone solidified hosting open houses for me and to be purposeful in doing it.
A purposeful Open House...meaning having a plan in place on how I will execute my open houses to make them productive in selling the home and gaining business. As a result, I have put together a pre-Open House plan to advertise for the open house. Some ideas include: Door Knocking the neighborhood (at least 100 hundred homes), email to my database, invest in more open house directional signs (at least 10), balloons on the signs, and advertise on social media. My ultimate goal is to become the neighborhood agent in Weston Ranch that residence contact for their real estate needs. I believe that sellers and agents do benefit from open house, however, it needs to be a well-planned open house. In 2015, I plan to host at least 24 Mega Open Houses.
