The Misconception and Our Opportunity

A common misconception among home sellers is that real estate agents have an easy job – put a sign in the yard, list it online, and wait.

This underestimation leads to commission disputes and a lack of appreciation for our negotiation skills. However, this misconception presents us, as agents, with a unique opportunity to demonstrate our value and hard work.

Differentiating with Open Houses

One way I’ve found to markedly differentiate myself and my team is through the strategic use of open houses. This might surprise you, especially in scenarios where sellers are hesitant about open houses due to their intrusive nature. However, the strategy behind open houses goes far beyond just opening doors to potential buyers.

The Strategy Explained

In a low inventory market, open houses are particularly effective, but their impact is felt in any market condition. The goal is always to position our clients to receive multiple offers simultaneously. This increases the chances of driving the price up and getting terms that are favorable to our clients.

Typically, if we’re not seeing multiple offers within the first 30 days of listing, chances diminish significantly. So, our approach involves scheduling two open houses within the first week or two of listing. The reasoning is twofold:

  1. Generating Direct Offers: By hosting an open house immediately after the listing goes live, we aim to create our own offers, independent of other agents.

  2. Attracting Offers from Other Agents: Open houses create buzz. Other agents and their clients notice and this additional exposure can lead to more offers.

The Psychology Behind the Approach

Here’s where it gets interesting. Even if we receive offers before our first open house, we still proceed with it. This move is strategic. We inform the potential buyer’s agent about the scheduled open house and our intention to review all offers post-event. This creates a sense of urgency and competition, potentially leading to higher offers.

Additionally, this approach has a psychological edge. Prospective buyers, seeing the interest at open houses, are more inclined to solidify their offers, afraid of losing out. This buyer frenzy, coupled with favorable comments from other viewers, can push them to increase their offers.

Post-Offer Open Houses

Even after accepting an offer, we don’t stop there. The second open house goes on as planned. Why? It’s a powerful negotiating tool during the inspection and due diligence phase. Knowing there might be backup offers, buyers are less likely to nitpick or delay the process, fearing they might lose the property.

Your Advantage

What sets your real estate team apart is your commitment to not just securing an offer but to securing the best possible deal for your clients. This means continuous marketing and strategizing, even post-offer, to ensure a secure transaction.

Building Trust and Authority

By employing this strategy and sharing it during your listing appointments, you not only showcase your expertise but also build a different kind of relationship with your clients.

They see you as an expert, not just a facilitator. This positions you as a trusted advisor whose recommendations carry weight, navigating them through any transactional challenges.

The Ripple Effect

Moreover, this approach has a ripple effect. Neighbors and community members notice your hard work and dedication. This visibility enhances your reputation and can lead to more listings and referrals.

It’s about creating a narrative that you’re not just another agent; you’re someone who employs thoughtful, effective strategies for the benefit of your clients.
