Row of open house signs

Open houses can be intimidating, but the tools in Flexmls can help decrease some anxiety with a few simple, effective steps.

Marketing Materials

You can create reliable flyers right from Flexmls. When you select the property and click the Print icon, you’ll be taken to the Listings to Print or Email screen. Make sure Detail Report is selected, then click on the arrow located on the Report tab to pick one of the five pre-made flyer templates that are available to you. The flyer will extract all of the listing agent information and replace it with your photo and contact info along with the Equal Housing logo.

Anticipate The Conversation

Sometimes a client walks into an open house and decides the property doesn’t meet their needs, however, they might want to learn about other properties in the area. Be ready with a handout sheet of active, nearby listings generated from Flexmls. While in search mode, select the Map tab, click the pushpin icon on the bottom of the map and enter the subject property address. After clicking Locate, select Radius Search, enter your desired radius and click Create Radius. Once your predetermined area is populated, click Print. Be sure to select All Results and not just Current Listing.

Capture Their Name

Now that you’ve effectively passed out your contact info twice, once with the flyer and once with the other active listings sheet, it’s time to gather their contact info. Go with a traditional sign-in sheet and place it near the entry way.

Now that you have some simple tips to follow you can proceed with confidence. Happy open housing!
