Your website can play a major role in both promoting open houses and helping you get more listings.
Here are the bases you’ll need to cover:
Bring your computer to the open house, making sure you also bring whatever you need to run it off the home’s current – you don’t want to risk running out of battery life. In fact, it can make sense to feed your website to a larger screen if you’ve got that technology available.
Open the computer to your listings. Sure, you’re there to sell the house that’s open, but lots of the folks who come by will want to look at what else you have to offer.
Showing off your listings on your computer also lets folks know that you’re using the best kind of technology when it comes to helping both buyers and sellers.
A stack of your business cards near the computer is a good idea – so is a form for collecting names, phone numbers and email addresses.
In many ways, your computer can act as a focal point during the open house without taking anything away from the house itself. It represents you while you’re pointing out the back yard, for example.
When you get your open house on your computer, and your computer to your open house you have the tools you need to connect with the clients you want.
