As a consumer do you think open houses are worth having and attending?
If you were selling your home would you want your Realtor to host open houses?
As a buyer do you go to them?
For me - the Realtor - I like them.
When you hire me to sell your home I will try any means I can to sell your place. An open house is just another form of advertising that shows your property to prospective buyers. I find it more effective than any newspaper ads. A newspaper ad will tell you the normal '4 bedroom 3 bath 1800SF 2 storey priced at $479,000' with a grainy picture. Where as an open house you see the real house in real life.
By the way I am doing an open house on 134 Sutherland Close in beautiful Southbrook this weekend:
Please stop by either Saturday or Sunday 2-4
So for me open houses are a valuable tool, the more people that see your house the better chance you will sell.
If you are thinking of selling I would love the opportunity to come over, view your home and do my evaluation. Hopefully one day you will allow me to host an open house on your home.
