How to Host a Virtual Open House

Feb 10, 2017

When you are trying to move your property quickly, a great tool to use as a seller is an open house. Learning how to properly host strangers in your home can be a very difficult thing to do. With the aid of modern day technology, a virtual open house can be a great option for you. This will help you avoid the problems that you usually have to deal with when you are hosting an open house.

Hosting a virtual open house can benefit you in many ways, such as:

·      Convenience/Security

·      24/7 Availability for prospective buyers

·      Engaging online buyers


You may end up finding items stolen, new stains in your carpet, and other damage that has been done to your home. You will also be forced to vacate your home during an open house in order to give your home a “new” feel.

24/7 Availability for Prospective Buyers

Learning how to host a virtual open house is a relatively easy thing to do. One great thing about a virtual open house is that it is accessible around the clock. Potential buyers can view the inside of your home without a real estate agent present. This will help to minimize confusion and missed appointments while giving potential buyers direct access to viewing the inside of your home.

Engaging Online Buyers

Well over half of today’s home buyers start their search online. Having a detailed tour of your home available online is a perfect way for buyers to feel as though they are walking through your home.

Helpful Tips for Your Virtual Open House

The best way to create a virtual tour of your home is with high-quality HD video. If you do not have the ability to capture HD video, quality still images can help as well. Pairing your virtual open house up with calming music can be a great way to get buyers into a much more relaxed state. This will help those who are looking at your home feel much more at home while looking at these photos. Make sure you are using wide-angle lenses that will help you capture all of the great details your home has to offer. If you are looking to attract the most buyers, it is a great idea to hire a professional company that focuses on virtual open houses. This is an investment that will really pay off big in the end.
