At Entwistle Green Leyland, we are now preparing for our next unique Open House Weekend, over the weekend of September 14 and 15.
The idea of the weekend is to allow motivated sellers to offer their properties in a relaxed Open House format for a two to four-hour period over the chosen weekend and invite buyers to view at their convenience at any time within allocated time slots.
This allows potential buyers to view without the usual time constraints of an estate agents diary whilst giving the vendors the opportunity to present their property at it’s best and maximise viewings at their home in an uber-relaxed environment.
We have run a number of these over the last couple of years and they have all been a roaring success.
Backed by Countrywide, the largest estate agency group in the UK, we have the ability and resources to ensure these events are marketed to the largest possible number of potential buyers thus giving our vendors the best chance of achieving a sale.
Advertising includes local press editorial, a branch window profile, presence and event promotion on 17 different property websites, entry into a catalogue which is circulated to thousands of buyers in the lead up to the weekend itself and regular branch e mail prompts and phone outs.
As always with this type of event, organisation and proactive sales are the key drivers.
All we ask is that our vendors prepare their property as best they can for the weekend and ready themselves for visitors.
We then market their properties aggressively to ensure as good a turn out as we possibly can. Our last Open House event secured 2,000 sales (subject to contract) which highlights just how successful a unique promotion like this can be.
We would encourage anyone looking to buy a property to register their details with your local office to ensure you get access to all of the entries, many of which are being marketed at a superb price to attract visitors for the weekend.
We would also suggest you do this quickly as despite still weeks to go to the event, a number of the entries have had sales agreed already.
Should you be interested in buying a property, or indeed looking to sell one and wish to take advantage of our advice on any aspect of the home moving process please feel free to contact the sales team on 01772 433868.
