Open House Events – How they can benefit both buyer and sellers

  18 Apr 2014
To meet the renewed demand from buyers across the region we have renewed the Open House event to ensure that buyers and sellers get the best opportunity. Unlike most Estate Agents, Jezzards have a slightly different concept to ensure that both buyers and sellers get the most out of the event.
High Quality Marketing
We understand that finding the right buyer for your property depends on the right people seeing it. That is why, for us, marketing is not a side issue – it’s at the heart of what we do. We market every property strategically, using professional photographs and floorplans in our advertising, both on and off line, via our own innovative website, a wide range of the major property portals as well as a selection of local press.
If a property is marketed at its very best, it will stand out to potential buyers, rather than being overlooked due to poor quality photographs doing the property an injustice.
Deciding The Best Time and Date For an Open House
Once the draft details have been approved by our clients, we will then agree a suitable date and time window for the Open House event. It is vital that local events are taken in to account that could clash with that date and of course other factors such as bank holidays and even school holidays need to be considered. At Jezzards we come up with a strategic plan to ensure that we can get the most out of the day.
The Open House Event
At Jezzards we recommend opening the property up for a two hour time slot window on a Saturday morning or early afternoon. This will ensure that as many people as possible will attend as they will be less likely to have work commitments. Typically, we open up the property for around two hours and invite buyers to come without the need for an appointment during this time. Depending on the size of the property, there will be at least two members of staff but more commonly more.

Benefits of an Open House Event

An Open House is one of the best ways of being fair to both buyers and sellers. By launching the property on to the market in this way, buyers all have exactly the same opportunity to see the property. Should a particular buyer want to come back when there are less people in the property, this can usually be accommodated, allowing the buyer more opportunity to inspect the property at their leisure.

There are also benefits for the seller. By allowing one specific day for viewings causes minimum disruption to the property and of course living at the property. It is also a good way to ensure that your agents has priced the property correctly.

What our clients say about us

  • " I've dealt with some horrible agencies whilst renting in the past but I am glad we had Jezzards as our last. Didn't know that someone so professional and understanding and true to it's word existed in the business. I locked myself out once and they were there in  20 mins to assist. Heating stopped in the night and their out of hours assistance helped sort us out. Any problems or issues, were very promptly and effectively dealt with...I didn't even have to chase them. Our exit was quick, refunds took some time due to overlooked issues, which Victoria Jezzard looked into personally, and all done in 3 days. Dorathy was our handler and she was ace!! "

  • " Everybody at Jezzards Estate Agents, Surbiton was very patient and sympathetic to our needs as non-residents looking to buy in a completely new area. We were provided with maps and advised on the layout of the town and nearby areas. We would particularly like to thank Gaj Murali for showing us round various properties in the pouring rain and taking a personal interest in helping us find the right property. Thank you Gaj. "
