Both methods can be effective, but the remainder of this article will focus on the traditional open house sign-in sheet. Now that I've provided you 5 beautiful sign-in sheets, let's shift gears to answer any remaining questions you may have applying these lead-generators at your next open house.
What should be on an open house sign-in sheet?
Since the goal of your open house is to generate leads, it makes sense to ensure your open house sign-in sheet contains the right information and questions.
Agent information: Include your name, job title, phone number, email, license number, brokerage, and of course, a picture of your beautiful face. Real estate is a people-business – by including your personal contact information, you will build rapport with your guests.
Property address: While often overlooked, it is important to include the property address on your open house sign-in sheet. This will help orient your visitor and establish your property in their mind.
Property details: Include fundamental property details like bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, and price. I also recommend a short paragraph that describes the unique selling features of the home.
Contact details: The meat and potatoes of your open house sign-in sheet is the contact details. It's critical that you collect enough information from your guest so that you can follow up. Generally, a good rule of thumb is to ask the following contact information: name, email, phone, what brings you here, and are you working with a realtor?
By asking the right questions, you’ll be better equipped to follow up with your visitors later that day or week with relevant information. This leads me to my next tip to generate more leads …
Ask open house visitors to sign in before entering
You’d be surprised to learn that many real estate agents simply place their sign-in sheet near the front door thinking visitors will sign in without being asked. Unfortunately, this is not how open house visitors behave.
Thankfully, when asked the right way, many visitors will have no problem signing in. So, what is “the right way” to ask your visitors to register?
Simple open house sign-in script … that actually works
Think about the last time you visited a hotel. As you approach the front lobby doors, you’ll often notice a friendly concierge waiting to greet you and provide direction. This concierge will often state something like:
“Hello, welcome to XYZ Hotel, please check in at the desk to my left.”
This is remarkably similar to the words to use when requesting your open house visitor to check in. By slightly modifying the script above, you can say something like:
“Hello, welcome to 123 Main Street. My name is Jessica Smith. I’ll be here to help you today. Before we get started, please check in here.”
This open house sign-in script is remarkably simple, yet effective. Why? It positions you as their guide. It also implies that registration is required, without explicitly using those uncomfortable words. Feel free to edit the script to your style or use it verbatim.
