For an open house, you can edit the listing, go to your home details page and click "Edit," then "Edit home facts."

Careful, have you noticed that you are the only property on Zillow in your neighborhood?  Zillow doesn't get much data in the Columbus/Hilliard/Franklin County are because they are not affiliated with the MLS or big brokers in the area.  As a result, they show so few listings that buyers are likely to quickly realize Zillow is just a tiny sliver of the market and go to websites like Realtor.com or the HER/Real Living website.  For your neighborhood those two websites will show 50+ times as many listings.

I am a flat fee broker member of the Columbus Board of Realtors MLS, so I know that for our Central Ohio sellers pay $449 and they get lots more buyer traffic on the 200+ other websites we list on, because buyers want to see the most listings.  Right now, Columbus is not a Zillow town, did you notice that the areas around your property have zero listings?  There just isn't much for a buyer to look at, so they go to the websites that show lots of listings.  Even the ColumbusRealtors.org website forwards to Realtor.com. Good luck in your sale.
