How to host an open house and attract serious offers


The Basics

If the owner resides in the home currently, give them at least three to five days of advance notice so that they can schedule plans elsewhere during the open house. Make sure the apartment, condo, townhouse, or estate is meticulously cleaned beforehand. Wipe down all surfaces inside the apartment and make sure dishes are cleaned and trash is removed. Make sure to have show sheets printed well in advance and that they are cleanly designed with all of the relevant information and financials regarding the residence.


 

Advertising

It is crucial that you advertise the open house online earlier during the week. There are numerous online platforms that allow agents to advertise listings and open houses. These portals include but are not limited to; Zillow, StreetEasy, Trulia, Realtor.com and many others. Agents at Nest Seekers International are particularly fortunate because our listings are advertised across these platforms instantly at no cost to the individual agent or the homeowner.  In addition, make certain that the open house is advertised to the brokerage community.

 

Open House Day

Arrive 30 minutes early to straighten up if necessary (see above) and to greet the owner on his or her way out. When guests arrive greet them with a warm smile and an introduction at the door. Upon entering the home request that the guests sign in and provide their name and contact information. Accompany the guests on tours throughout the property to give them the tour or answer any questions they may have. If you are predicting a particularly busy turnout, enlist the help of others in your brokerage firm to help with the flow of buyers and other agents. When all of the guests have departed, gather your things, turn off all the lights and secure the property for the homeowner.

Follow Up

Make sure to follow up promptly with everyone who signed in and took a tour of the open house. Write a personal thank you to anyone who appeared particularly interested and offer to answer any questions they may have or accommodate additional showings.

Nest Seekers agent looks to set the record for the most expensive single-family condo sale in Long Island City


Silvette Julian of Nest Seekers International looks to set the record for the most expensive condo sale in Long Island City with the sale of 46-30 Center Boulevard for $5,400,000. 46-30 Center Boulevard was purchased by Queens taxi magnate Basil Messados in 2009 for $2,500,000. The luxury property market in Long Island City real estate has grown tremendously since 2009 and properties are fetching higher and higher values.

This unique 3 bedroom penthouse boasts an expansive wrap-around terrace, impressive cathedral ceilings, and a sprawling sun-drenched living room with a fireplace. In addition, the Long Island City condo features floor-to-ceiling all-glass windows, and unobstructed panoramic views of Manhattan.

Designed by renowned architectural firm Handel Architects, the View condominium is the only luxurious water-front condo in Long Island City. Naturally, this property comes with all the bells and whistles of a new condominium development -- 24-hour doorman, fitness center and free membership to the Eastcoast Club which offers a lap pool, gym, sauna, spa, cinema room, as well as numerous indoor lounges.

This unique offering is sure to set the single-family record for Long Island City real estate!
