Saturday 2 October: NVM open houses day

On Saturday 2 October it is time again for the NVM open house day. Twice a year, if you are looking for a house to buy, you can go out and view homes that are for sale without making an appointment. This is ideal if you are still considering your options, and are not yet sure where you want to live and what kind of house you are looking for. The last three times NVM Open Houses Day could not take place because of the corona pandemic, but there is good hope that this year the next NVM Open Houses Day will take place on 2 October.

What is the NVM Open House Day, and why is it organised?

The NVM Open Houses Day has been a recurring phenomenon in the housing market for several years. Every year, many sellers and buyers take part. The event is organised twice a year by the Dutch Association of Estate Agents (NVM). The purpose of the NVM Open House Day is to give buyers the opportunity to view homes that are for sale. On that day, sellers open their homes for viewing and as a buyer you can simply drop by without having to make an appointment first. As a buyer, you can view various homes on such a day without any obligation. Traditionally, this day takes place on a Saturday in the spring and autumn between 11.00 and 15.00 hours.

What is the advantage of participating in the NVM Open House Day?

The NVM Open House Day often yields more than 100,000 viewings per edition. An open house day is attractive to both buyers and sellers of a house. If you are looking for a house, you can easily view and compare different houses in the region you want to live in without an appointment. Because the visits are without obligation, a visit does not have to take long and you can easily visit several houses on one day.

But the NVM Open House Day also offers unique opportunities to sellers. You can show your house to a larger number of interested parties. In recent years, the housing market has changed from a buyers' market to a sellers' market, which means that many people are looking for a house to buy, but there is little supply. Because the open house day is easily accessible, people who are not yet ready to move on often come to see houses, which increases the chance that you will sell your house quickly. Ask your NVM estate agent how you can make this day a success.

What does it cost to participate and what are the benefits of the NVM Open House Day?

If you want to participate in the NVM Open House Day, you can let an NVM broker like Easie know for free that you want to participate in the NVM Open House Day.

The NVM takes care of the publicity around the event through various channels. Houses are promoted extra on websites like Funda and through social media. Experience shows that in the run-up to the NVM Open House Day, these types of websites are consulted far more often by people looking for a potential house to buy. The NVM figures for the previous NVM Open House Day show that 53% of the homes that participated were sold 12 weeks later. If you compare that with homes that did not participate in the event, the figure was 42%.

Participating in the NVM Open House Day on 2 October 2021

So it is very attractive for both buyers and sellers to participate in the NVM Open House Day on 2 October. Because the NVM believes that the current interpretation of Open House Day in a tight housing market is not really good enough, they are busy developing a new interpretation of the event. If you would also like to take part in the new NVM Open House Day on 2 October, then let your NVM estate agent know about it quickly.
