Are You Running Open Houses Correctly?
Questions about your Real Estate Career?

I recently got a question from an agent who has been attracting buyers to open houses, but they werenâ€™t getting accurate contact information from the people coming through. How do you get people to leave their real contact information at open houses?
Obviously, the primary objective of the open house is to sell the home. However, youâ€™ll get a lot of people coming through who decide the home isnâ€™t right for them. You might even get a few people who are thinking of selling their own homes, but want to check out the competition. Those are great opportunities for you to get their information.
You want to create the best bait that you can. Donâ€™t throw a hook in the water and expect a lot of fish. Have a buyer book and a seller book that you can hand out at open houses. Only bring one copy for buyers and one copy for sellers. The buyer book has tips for them to find the perfect home at a great price. The seller book has tips for netting the most money on your home sale.
If theyâ€™re interested, ask them to write down their name, address, and phone number, and youâ€™ll send them the book. Now you have great information and after you send them the book, you can follow up, convert them, and get more business.
Itâ€™s much better to offer something of value than to have people fill out a survey they donâ€™t want to deal with. Those surveys get you fake email addresses and scribbled phone numbers. If you offer something of value, you will always get the correct contact information.
If you donâ€™t have a book, you can always use a free report with tips to sell your home for top dollar or tips on finding the right home. Then they will be happy to give you their contact information.
If you have any questions, give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to help you!
