Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.: March 2012

Open House tip for this weekend.

If you are hosting an open house this weekend here are two suggestions for the open house.

You should go to the Dollar store for some inexpensive items eg a large basket, easter grass and pastel colored eggs. Fill these eggs with Hershey kisses and display at the open house near the sign-in sheet . Give each person who visits the house one of the treats along with your card and flyer about the house.

It will creat a warm atmosphere. Everyone loves to receive something for free and most people love Hershey kisses. They are usually on sale at this time.

Another thing you can do is to buy a large glass jar and fill it will Jelly Beans that you can buy at the same store. Count the Jelly beans in advance and when people register ask them to guess the number of Jelly beans  in the jar. Offer to call them after the open house if they have won. The prize will be the jar of jelly beans. people love the game.

 

When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.
