The market is very hot right now and a lot of homes are receiving multiple offers. What are we doing to create higher offers for our listings in the current market?

We’ve come up with a tactic that I call the five-day listing.

We start by listing your home on a Thursday, after we’ve gotten it ready and had it properly staged for the market.

Then, we schedule an open house for that Sunday. Realtors and buyers see the property hit the MLS and all of the other real estate websites on Thursday, so they call to schedule showings on Friday or Saturday.

When they call, we tell them that the seller has an open house scheduled that Sunday, and that the seller has asked to wait until after the open house to accept offers.

This way, we create urgency and scarcity in the mind of the buyers and the agents. If they make an offer before the open house, they will make the highest offer possible.

We advertise the open house on every real estate website out there, including Zillow,, Trulia, and the MLS. That way, buyers know about the open house. We also put out 30 to 50 open house signs to create a huge event.
We make a spectacle out of the open house to create a sense of urgency for the buyers.
We really want to make a spectacle out of your open house so that any buyers who are interested in your property will be scared that someone else might buy it.

A lot of the time, we never even have to have the open house. Since the buyers who have showings on Friday or Saturday are scared of losing the house, their offers are usually very good. In that case, you can just go ahead and accept an offer.

If we do have the open house, you will likely have multiple offers on the home by Monday. Those offers can drive the sales price up and help you get the best terms.

Our five-day listing strategy helps you sell for the most money in the least amount of time and without any hassle.
