During a conversation with a realtor about an open house visit, I learned much about the role of the host and the realtor in attracting, identifying, and convincing the customer to purchase. First, she informed me that she takes high-quality pictures to post online on Facebook Zillow and Trulia sites. Once a date is picked, she arrives at the site beforehand to ensure that the premises are clean and in good condition. Whenever buyers’ approach, she shows them the house, highlighting all the possibilities and benefits of living in the premises and neighborhood. Then she allows them to think through the purchase after informing them of the price and patent options. I found her strategies effective, showing a great deal of respect to the buyers, and would apply them in my career whenever I host an open house event. In conclusion, real estate in the country is rapidly changing, necessitating new real estate regents, sellers, and buyers.
