How To Hold An Open House In The Winter In Temecula CA

Yes, we all know that winter is typically the slowest season for real estate in general and house sales in particular. So you have to make the most of every opportunity that presents itself, and that’s why getting the open house right is critical.

Here are few tips on how to hold an open house in the winter in Temecula – tips that could mean the difference between a sale and, well, the other alternative.

How To Hold An Open House In The Winter In Temecula

Market Creatively and Cast a Wide Net

Before you try to successfully hold an open house in the winter in Temecula, you have to get buyers there in the first place. And that usually means early, broad, and creative marketing – and then, of course, a top-notch open house.

In addition to the traditional online listing sites, you should also use Facebook and other social media platforms that you have. Then you can go outside the box. If there’s a local winter event, you could hand out flyers or put up signs. Another possibility is a sneak-preview block party because you never know how many interested friends or relatives of your neighbors may show up.

Make it Comfortable and Inviting

Maybe you like to keep your thermostat set at 65, but the people who come to your open house probably won’t like it. Keep your home comfortable and inviting to induce a receptive mood in your visitors and to keep them there longer.

You could, for example, have a cheery fire going the fireplace. And don’t forget the power of refreshments – maybe cookies and hot cider or hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day. Also, if the open house takes place during the day, pull back the drapes to let the sunshine and solar heat in.

Use Minimal Seasonal Décor

Another good idea is to put out little to no seasonal décor and dressings.You just never know what point visitors may occupy on the religious spectrum, and an offended potential buyer isn’t likely to become an actual buyer.

In fact, minimal seasonal décor can be more elegant and can more advantageously show off the features of your home. Besides, you won’t have all that clean-up and take-down afterward if you do sell the house – no wreaths and lights to take down and store, no yard ornaments to pack up and haul away. Just keep it simple and generic and tasteful.

Be Flexible

When it comes to working out scheduling to hold an open house in the winter in Temecula, some conflicts and inconveniences will be inevitable. But a good amount of flexibility on your part will go along way toward smoothing these out.

During the winter, especially around the holidays, people’s weekends are usually crammed with various social activities and family get-togethers. So if you can accommodate your visitors’ busy schedules by holding the open house on, say, a weekday evening, you’re likely to have a more populous and more successful open house. If, however, the weekend is the only thing that will work, you could try to have it early on a weekend day.

You could, for example, choose a Saturday morning and offer light brunch snacks. Another idea some have successfully deployed is to hold the open house during a popular football game, giving it a sort of tailgate-party theme.

You absolutely can sell your house when other people tell you the seasonal odds are against it. Just plan ahead and keep these tips in mind when you hold an open house in the winter in Temecula.

Sean / SDS and his team (shout to to Tom!) was great to work with. Prompt to give us a quote (his proposal was detailed), and prompt to start and finish. They didn’t cut corners and even suggested layouts that were better than ours. We are so in love with our bathroom and hope to work with them again with other projects in the future! Thank you Sean and Tom!

We can't say enough about Sean and his team at SDS. We used them to remodel our brand new tract home: expanding a closet, painting, swapping out some doors, etc. Sean and his team gave us the utmost care. We had several contractors coming and going, and BY FAR, Sean's team was the most professional, clean, efficient and friendly. I loved working with Tom and Jorge and all the guys. They even assembled a couple of consoles I received from Wayfair for my parents. Now we are getting estimates for an epic backyard from Sean. Can't wait to get going! O! And when they said they would be here at 8am they were always right on time. Thanks guys!

SDS Home’s did a complete remodel of the guest bathroom at my house. The crew that worked on my project was very professional and I’m extremely happy about the end results. I also think the project cost was very fair. I’m very happy that I hired SDS Home’s for this project.

I am very impressed with this company. When I called, I actually got to speak to the owner directly and he answered his phone. He was very informative about permitting, plans and city ordinances. He is always willing to go above and beyond. My colleagues have used him and WOW! He is really good! You will not be disappointed! Give him a call!
