Selling By ‘Open House’

Posted on Friday, June 9, 2017

The whole process of selling your house, can be very time consuming and frustrating. A particularly frustrating aspect can be all of the waiting around and having to continually clean-up for individual appointments.


At Abbey Estates we appreciate that time is precious and one way in which we can help to combat these issues is to consider open house viewings.

Key benefits of an open house for sellers:

Convenience                                     -           Get all of the viewings concluded in one day.

You could get more money            -           More competition often relates to higher offers.

Time saving                                      -           Clean-up just once

A quick sale                                      -           Increased demand makes buyers decide quickly.

Okay, so as a seller you might not relish suddenly having your property filled with a bunch of complete strangers. We prefer to structure the viewing day and give all of the applicants an individual, pre-booked, viewing slot of 20 to 30 minutes. This enables us to spend more time with them in order to answer any questions that they may have. We will also accompany the applicants around your house for increased security. Obviously, it is not a very good idea to allow unknown people free access to your property. Therefore all of our applicants are registered for security and our staff are experienced and fully trained in order to minimise any risk.
