Mastering Open House Signage: Tips for a Successful Showing

An open house can be an excellent opportunity to showcase your property to potential buyers. To maximize its effectiveness, you need to invest time and effort in the details, and one crucial aspect is your open house signage strategy. In this guide, we'll share some valuable tips on how to use open house signs effectively to attract more visitors and make your property stand out.

1. Plan Ahead:

  • Don't wait until the day of the open house to think about signage. Check with your local city and homeowners' association (HOA) to understand any regulations related to open house signs. This includes rules regarding sign size, design, colors, and placement.

2. Location, Location, Location:

  • Consider the location of your property and strategically place signs to attract potential buyers. If your property is near a freeway, focus on overpasses on both sides to capture the attention of drivers turning left or right.

3. Sign Design:

  • Create vibrant and consistent sign designs that reflect your brand and are easy to recognize. Use bold fonts and clear arrows to guide visitors. Make sure your signs are large enough to be seen from a distance.

4. Consistency is Key:

  • Maintain consistency in the design and placement of your signs. Avoid using different colors or styles that may confuse potential buyers. Uniformity helps them recognize your open house as they navigate the area.

5. Get Permission:

  • If your property is in a neighborhood or community with neighbors nearby, consider asking them for permission to place signs in their yards. Most will be happy to help, but always ensure you pick up the signs promptly after the open house.

6. The Right Order:

  • The order in which you place your signs matters. If there are multiple turns to reach your property from the main road, start with signs closest to your home and work your way back to the main road. This prevents you from running out of signs before reaching the property.

7. Early Setup:

  • Begin setting up your signs well in advance of the open house, about an hour to an hour and a half before the event starts. Ensure that the signs are in place and directing potential visitors to your property.

8. Consider Early Arrivals:

  • Be mindful that some visitors may arrive earlier than the scheduled open house time. The last sign you place should be the one right in front of the property. Include contact information on that sign, in case someone arrives before you do.

9. Additional Information:

  • Attach a container for flyers or brochures to your signs so that interested visitors can take home information about the property.

Mastering your open house signage strategy can significantly impact the number of potential buyers who visit your property. By planning ahead, following local regulations, maintaining consistency, and strategically placing signs, you can create a memorable open house experience and increase your chances of a successful sale.
