Should my inspections be by appointment or open home?
I often get asked: inspections by appointment or open house? At the end of the day, it’s a personal choice and it’s about your privacy and confidentiality. However, you need to consider this: buyers are busy. On Saturdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays when they’re doing their normal open day runs they’re more likely to go and attend properties where it’s easy and more convenient for them to inspect, rather than contacting an agent to do by appointment, so make it easy for them. Remove the hurdles. Allow them to come and inspect the property. These days buyers want to do all of their research and inspections before actually speaking to an agent and engage in conversation about negotiating.
