Selling A Charlottesville Home – Open Houses
Open houses have been one of the staples for maketing in home for sale. On Sundays we still see many open houses advertised in the local paper. However how effective are open houses in today’s real estate market? If you have a Charlottesville home for sale, is it necessary for your real estate agent to hold an open house? Well the answer is yes…and no.
With the avalibility of all of the homes that are for sale on line, the internet has become the new open house. If the home is properly market, consumers will be able to go on line and see pictures of every room in the home. In addition there may be a visual tour or video tour. House hunters can view all of the homes for sale from the commfort of their living room. Then they can ask their agents to take them through their favorites.
If your home for sale is in a Charlottesville neighborhood that gets a lot of driveby or walking traffic, an open house may still get a lot of visitors. However if your home is in a more out of the way, or even rural location, an open house may not be effective.
You will want to be sure to hire an agent who is an internet marketing specialist. And remember that lots of excellent pictures are crucial! With that recipe your online Charlottesville open house will be a winner.
