Five Tips for Holding a Successful Open House to Sell your Tulsa, Oklahoma Real Estate

Sep 8, 2008
If you're going to be holding an Open House to try and sell your Tulsa, Oklahoma real estate there are several things that you can do to make it seem more appealing to buyers and entice them to make an offer right then and there.

If you can grab their attention at the Open House, they are more likely to make an offer that day because they will see that other people are interested in the property too. If you want to have the most successful Open House possible, follow these five tips.

1. Advertise your Open House online -- Newspaper ads are not very popular and they are expensive. Advertise online using Facebook, MySpace, Craigslist and other popular sites to get the word out about your Open House. You also should place plenty of signs around town. Direct signs are the still the best way to spread the word about an Open House.

2. Think about parking ahead of time -- Move all your personal cars and vehicles out of the driveway so that there are plenty of parking spaces. Ask your neighbors and friends to not park close to the house on the street that day so that there will be plenty of parking for people that want to see your Tulsa, Oklahoma real estate that is for sale.

3. Turn up the light -- Open every window and every drape or blind to let in as much light as possible. The buyers will want to see how much natural light the house gets. In addition you should turn on all the lights in the house. That will show that all the lights work and it will make the Tulsa Oklahoma real estate more open and inviting to buyers.

4. Have a catered lunch -- People love food, and you will probably be far too busy to prepare a light lunch and present it beautifully. The cost of the catering is well worth it because it will give you the time you need to attend to other things. Make sure that there is a pie cooking or cookies baking to fill the house with a warm, homey smell.

5. Put up a bulletin board posting -- Make your posting full of pictures of the house during different times of the year or have a laptop showing a slideshow of the home during different seasons.

This is a great way to showcase the garden and landscaping if you are trying to sell the Tulsa, Oklahoma real estate during a season when the garden isn't in bloom.
