Must Haves for Your Next Open House

November 30 2021

If you are hosting your first open house, you might be a little ovewhelmed, not wanting to make any mistakes at all.

We understand and want to help you come up with a game plan. Here is a list of things that you may want to have at your open house and some ideas on things to do to help make it the best it can be.

Sheet

You can have a sheet or use an iPad to hand it to guests during the home tour.

Business Card

Business cards are very vital. Most clients do not make their decision during the open house, so you want to make sure you give them the option to contact you with any questions at all outside of the open house.

Directional Signs

Anything you can do to make it easier for clients to find a home will always be appreciated by clients.


Refreshments are nice to have, and most clients appreciate it.

Property MLS Sheets and Information Packets

Information packets can be valuable at your open house to give to potential clients who don't want to stay and have a long conversation.

Live Stream Your Open House on Social Media

Facebook Live, Instagram, Zoom, Google Hangouts: There is no better way to get extra eyes on the property than to put it on your social media platforms. Streaming your open house will allow those who are uncomfortable with being around a lot of people or are better at remote communcation to view the property as well.

Air Fresheners

Air freshener, candle, or something to make sure that the home does not smell will make the experience for attendees a bit better.

Host a Raffle

One way to get more people to your open house is to have a raffle. People love free things, and what better way to get more people to visit.

Invite Your Neighbors

Most agents think that neighbors won't be interested, but the neighbors can help make the event more welcoming. They may also know things about the neighborhood that you might not know.

Goody/Thank You Bags

Try to partner with a local shop when thinking about what different things you should put in the gift bags.
