National Open House Day
Strutt & Parker's National Open House Day gives both buyers and sellers the freedom and flexibility to get the most from their property search or sale.
On Saturday 11th May, hundreds of homes in England and Wales will open their doors as part of Strutt & Parker's National Open House Day, offering a range of benefits for both buyers and sellers alike.
Whether you’re putting your property out into the market, interested in moving or adding to your portfolio, this is the perfect opportunity to do so under the organisation of one of the UK’s leading property experts.
Open day for sellers
Opening your house gives buyers a more flexible and relaxed atmosphere in which to explore your home and really get to grips with what their new home might offer. Our Open House Day for sellers creates a buzz surrounding properties on one convenient day for buyers and generates good competition for our properties.
Open houses can bring a lot of benefits for sellers, providing the convenience and flexibility that buyers are looking for, as well as making things convenient for the sellers themselves. Strutt & Parker’s National Open House Days are designed to bring buyers and sellers together in a mutually beneficial environment.
Our last National Open House Day in May 2018 led to 77 offers, totalling over £61.5 million, with over 990 active viewers taking part on the day and 36 properties going under offer as a result.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to find your ideal buyer on Saturday 11th May.
How does it work?
- Contact your local office to find out more
- The potential for several viewings in one day from motivated buyers
- After the event, we'll follow up with everyone who's viewed your house to get feedback and hopefully, receive an offer
As a seller, it can sometimes be difficult to balance your other priorities with preparing and hosting regular viewings, especially if your property is likely to be popular. By registering for our open house day, you can have a large number of viewings in one day which makes it much easier to plan and structure around other commitments.
By taking part in our open house day you can increase the chances of a quick sale. With more people visiting your property, the number of potential buyers also increases. Another benefit for the seller is that buyers are more exposed to the competition a property has around it, which may encourage them to act faster than they ordinarily would.
As they can come in their own time and are not there on a one-to-one basis with an agent, buyers are much more likely to be relaxed and receptive to the merits of the property. With an open house, they can explore a property in their own time and feel more comfortable when making a decision.
