Open Houses


Many buyers, especially those coming from out of area, prefer not to be constrained by having exact prearranged times and like the informality of viewing at an open viewing. Open houses are an excellent way of marketing your home. At Moores we market our open house properties within a price bracket; the aim of which is to market the property competitively to encourage interest whilst managing buyers expectations of what is a good price for the property. Our aim is to stimulate a large number of viewings on the one day which will ultimately result in one or more offers; often higher than the original guide.

A representative of Moores will man the open house and we find that buyers are often more likely to open up and talk freely about the property in this environment; so at the very least you will receive honest and useful feedback. Your property will be extensively marketed for at least two weeks before your open house both via the local press and internet marketing; all buyers on our mailing list will be notified in advance and then nearer the time as a reminder. Approximately 50% of open houses result in an offer!
