Open Houses 101: How to Market

Open Houses are a great marketing tool for real estate agents to get exposure on their listings, and ultimately for home sellers to get their listed homes sold! For agents, it’s the perfect time for neighbors to help you sell your listing by word of mouth because neighbors love living near their best friends, and not to mention, it really shows your clients you mean business!  Impress everyone with your successful open house, using the opportunity to showcase your business and your brand to current clients and potential clients who might stop in. It’s all about setting yourself apart from the others.

You know it’s true, this shouldn’t be new news! So why are your open houses tanking it? Great question!

Jason Jakus shows us how to successfully move from a handful of people attending your open houses to pulling in 15-40 people to your one open house! He emphasizes the importance of having a system, which initially may seem time consuming, but proves worth it with proper set-up and implementation.
