Newcomers into the Prefabricated Business?
The starting step or the best way forward for a person interested in the prefabricated housing business is to invest in a model home & conduct an open house. This would act as a display version of the manufactured home & present a real life sample of the living space and features of homes available.
When your home is open to the public, anyone can stop by for a peek & it would act as an advertising mechanism to also prospective investors, interior designers, agents & other complimentary businessmen. Visitors can take their time walking from room to room and ask questions about the home's features. This allows buyers to see the inside of the home in a way you can't get from flipping through photos online.
Holding an Open House Event
Hosting an open house is a good opportunity for you to receive honest feedback. One can count on at least a few of the attendees to offer candid comments about what they do and don't like. The realtor can collect this information during the open house and share it with you afterward. You may decide to make minor improvements or highlight certain amenities based on visitors' input.
It's very easy to host an open house, as long as you do the preparation work ahead of time. The realtor will recommend a day and time that is best to host the event. Most open houses are held for a few hours on weekend afternoons, sometimes mid-week so buyers can observe the area's school or rush-hour traffic patterns.
Important things to pay attention
Holding an open house requires more marketing than putting a sign in the front yard. The marketing plan may include advertising the open house in the classified section of the newspaper, independent website or other online media, and directional signage in the neighborhood.
It's important to help your home look its best before holding an open house. The more appealing a property looks from the outside, the greater chance a potential buyer will choose to drop in.
It is important to put away anything that will distract buyers from the property, such as personal photos and other knick knacks. Scrub the house from top to bottom. Nothing is less appealing than a dirty home.
A little paint goes a long way to brighten a room. If you do paint, choose neutral colors. They are much more appealing to buyers.Ensure there are no squeaky doors, leaky faucets, faulty lights, etc... as the first impression is definitely lasting.
To conclude, an open house is definitely an opportunity for you, an investor to market your homes directly to potential buyers. They get a non-virtual, live feel of what they will be dealing in & this helps increase confidence, which is priceless.
If You already know how to execute your plan, it is just a matter of putting all of your planning into motion and doing what you already know how to do best, that is selling real estate.
